Public Request for Installation of street lights in Palam Vihar, Gurgaon

January 2013


On 08th January' 2013 I had started a petition telling Haryana Govt. to put street lights in Palam Vihar (Gurgaon) as dark alleys and streets were unsafe for women and children among other residents. In just about 20 days the authorities took action and installed streetlights in his area. I had been campaigning for 2 years on the issue through sms's, formal letters and phone calls. After 4392 people signed his petition and consecutive media pressure the authorities took action immediately. I take pride in sharing that your efforts on signing my petition have yielded great results. Already half of the stretch has streetlights now and work in progress on rest of the road. This is very encouraging. Please remember, there was no provision of street light on this road ever.

For years, residents of Palam Vihar (Gurgaon/New Delhi) have been demanding installation of street lights in their locality, but the Govt. of Haryana hasn't taken any steps to ensure street lights in the area.

Roads are dark and lack visibility post sunset, specially when it's raining and during winters. Street lights are important to reduce crime and ensure our safety and security especially women and children.

There are enough mentions of crime in this area, thefts, chain snatching, carkacking and many more. Residents are tired of trying to reach out to local authorities, who make false promisesand take no action.

The recent 'Delhi Gang Rape' has revealed many inefficiencies in the system, after such cases, all authorities are expected to work proactively for their areas, but sadly the authorities have shown no interest to safe guard women in this area.

As a Palam Vihar resident request you to sign my petition telling the Chie Secretary of Hayana to install street lights in the area and help Palam Vihar residents lead a safe life.

      ...I agree that the condition of the streetlights all over the HUDA area is not up to the mark and I have asked the contractors and officials to improve it. The residents will see the difference in the coming days. And regarding this particular stretch in the Palam Vihar ara I will do what I can do see that the streetlights are fixed at the earliest.” HUDA Administrator, Mr. Kumar

      If there are no street lights, people can commit crime and get away with it because most people will not able to see the criminal's face.

      It's a matter of shame that the govt. of the day is incapable of protecting life,property & honour of citizens; can they not fulfil even this little demand of well-meaning citizens?
