Gurgaon: The city mayor on Tuesday directed the officials of the MCG to submit a report by February 18 on the development work planned and executed, if any, in the 16 villages added to MCG limits in 2020.
“When I visited Bhondsi village recently, the residents raised several demands for the development of the village. The 16 villages are now part of MCG and they have brought with them resources and funds for the corporation. It is now MCG’s duty to develop these areas and provide civic amenities to them. I will visit all these villages along with the commissioner and joint commissioner to evaluate their infrastructure requirements. After the meeting, I have directed the chief engineer to provide me village-wise status of development work planned and executed so far in these villages,” said mayor Madhu Azad.
She added that the villages’ requirements for community centres, schools, cremation ground etc. will be assessed and proposals will be made accordingly.
The revenue estates of 16 villages were added to the MCG limit in December 2020.
“It has been two years now that the villages were brought under MCG. However, the civic body has only provided us sanitation workers. The villages need sewer lines and water connections. In Bajghera, they are also constructing a community centre, however, a lot still needs to be done,” said Bir Singh, former sarpanch of Bajghera village.
