MAD cleans up Old Survey Road under Safai Yatra

Dehradun : Dehradun’s own student activist group, Making A Difference By Being The Difference (MAD)  cleaned up the old survey road, roadside dump on Sunday and monitored the same closely on Monday and Tuesday; while also rigorously and systematically engaging the locals to ensure that the locality remains clean as it completed the third phase of its Safai Yatra. This activity was in continuation of MAD’s ongoing campaign, wherein the group is cleaning up different places in Dehradun city on a war footing based on the kind of support it is getting from the local residents. 

 

Chief Minister Harish Rawat who had joined the group in the first two phases of the Yatra was unable to join the third one given his busy schedule. He had nonetheless sent his best wishes for the campaign to MAD’s Founding President Abhijay Negi.

 

On MAD’s request the Nagar Nigam had sent a JCB and a waste collection vehicle timely along with a few workers to help the clean-up intiative. When Maddians had started their work at Old Survey Road; waste was scattered all over the road and it took the group a little less than three hours to clean it all up. 

 

 

 

MAD’s Safai Yatra has made the Nagar Nigam much more serious about the dilapidated garbage disposal system in the city and the Chief Minister’s personal initiative has ensured that on its part the State Government judiciously shares its resources with the Municipality. MAD is enthused by these positive developments and plans to continue further with greater vigor.

 

Four years since MAD began its campaign for a cleaner city based on pocket money resources; many youngsters have joined the team which has made it an effective pressure group; which very much (by self admission) aims at “lobbying” for the right causes such as revival of streams, conservation of greenery and town planning. Today; all wings of the Government have started taking MAD’s efforts seriously. 

 

MAD has taken the Chief Minister to two (Tyagi Road and Nehru Colony) dirty locations in the city and plans to continue with such drives weekly till the arc of civic sense intersects with that of Governmental empathy. Present in today’s activity were Himalay Ramola, Adarsh, Kartikeya Khattri, Shailja Chaurasia, Kunain Ansari, Ankit Sajwan, Saurav Joshi, Manvenddra Singh Rawat, Swati Singh among many others.

 

सीपीयू ने किया व्यापारियों का जीना मुश्किल

देहरादून : मित्र पुलिस  कहलाए जाने वाली उत्तराखंड पुलिस की छवि को लगातार हानि पहुचने का काम करती आई है सीपियू।  आज फिर देहरादून पुलिस को शर्मिंदा कर बेवकूफी का नमूना पेश किया इस स्पेशल सेल ने। सीपीयू अक्सर ही विवादों में फसी दिखाई देती है। जान पढता है की इन्हे ऐसा लगने लगा है की ये खुद ही कानून बन बैठे हैं और जिस काम के लिए इनका गठन हुआ थाए वो काम छोर ये अब चालान काटना ज़ादा पसंद करते हैं। 

 
आज सुबह ई सी रोड पे सीपियू की एक जोड़ी ने लाइन से पार्किंग वाली साइड सफ़ेद पट्टी के अंदर कड़ी वाहनों के चालान काट दिए। ईसी रोड पे व्यापारी, उनके ग्राहक और अन्य लोग पिछले कई सालों से अपनी गाड़ियां सड़क के बाईं ओर  कड़ी करते आए हैं।  ये भी झुटलाया नई जा सकता की सड़क का बयां हिस्सा दबा हुआ है और अगर कोई वाहन अछे से खड़ा किया जाए तो वह ट्रैफिक को कभी बाधित नहीं कर सकती। 
 
 
व्यापारियों ने जब सीपीयू के आए हुए एक चौधरी जी से बात करनी चाही तो उन्होंने बड़े ही रौब और बातमीज़ी से बात समझने या करने से माना कर दिया,  साथ ही यह कह दिया की कप्तान साहब का आर्डर है और उन्ही से बात की जाए। चौधरी साहब का बात करने का अंदाज़ बाधमाशों से भी बत्तर था जो  व्यापारी सह न पाए और एसपी ट्रैफिक को फ़ोन लगा बैठे।  हाल ऐसा था की इसपी साहब ने पल्ला झाड़ा और डालनवाला इंचार्ज को मौके पे भेज साइड हो लिए। 
 
 
बात और आगे तब बढ़ी जब सीपीयू ने भाजपा के एक नेता का चालान काट दिया जब की वह अपनी गाडी में मौजूद थे।  हंगामा बढ़ने पर छात्र संघ के नेताओं ने मोर्चा संभाला और भाजपा की महानगर अध्यक्ष नीलम सहगल भी मौके पर आ पहुंची। हंगामा बढ़ता देख और सीपीयू का बत्तमीजी भरा रवैया देख डालनवाला इंचार्ज जोशी जी ने बात समझी और सीपीयू ने काटे हुए चालान वापस लिए।  जोशी साहब ने व्यापारियों की तकलीफ समझी और सिर्फ दिन में १ बजे से ३ बजे तक वाहन खड़ा ना करे जाने पे सहमति ज़ाहिर की। 
 
अब सोचने वाली बात ये है की सड़क के साइड में कड़ी वाहने हटाने से पुलिस ट्रैफिक के हालात में सुधार कैसे ला पाएगी।  मौके पे देख के कोई भी अनुमान लगा लेगा की जिन वाहनो के चालान काटे गए, उनके हटने से कोई फरक नई पढ़ने वाला।  ये समझ आता है की ट्रैफिक में सुधर न ला पाने की असफलता के कारण अब सीपियू ये बताना चाह रही है की मेहनत तो की गईए भले ही दिशा बेवकूफाना क्यों न हो। 
 
 
२४सौं घण्टे ड्यूटी देने वाली खाकी अब आम पुलिस 
खाकी पहनकर चौबीसों घण्टे समाज की सुरक्षा के लिए तत्पर रहने वाली पुलिस अब महकमें के लिए आम हो गई है। कारोबारियों के हंगामे के दौरान सीपीयू की जुबान से निकले शब्दों 'हम आम पुलिस नहीं है' से थाना-चौकी में तैनात नागरिक पुलिस को लेकर मानसिकता सामने आई। जबकि १०० फीसदी सच्चाई यही है कि यदि खाकी की मौजूदगी में ही सामाजिक तानाबाना सुरक्षित है।
