BHOPAL: The park at E-4, Arera Colony, is in highly pathetic condition despite being located in a posh locality because of lacking proper maintenance. Neither the Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) administration nor the local residents seem to be concerned about it. It looks simply like a piece of land enclosed by fencing from four sides. Similarly, there had to be proper plantation at periphery to enhance the beauty of the park and seating arrangement in proper way.
“No doubt, authority concerned hardly takes interest in maintenance of the park. Consistent neglect ruins the park. It should not be hi-tech but it must be properly maintained with certain facilities.”
“Simply fencing a piece of land does not make it to be a park. It should be developed like park. But unfortunately, it is not done. Local residents can also do it instead of waiting for the BMC administration for maintenance. Stray animals remain roaming here and there.”
“The park should be properly developed and well maintained. Otherwise, it looks like simply a fenced ground. Rest of the damage is done by the paving which robs the park off charm.”
“It is just because of negligence on the part of BMC administration. Even local residents should also be interested in maintaining the park. For speedy work, local residents should be active. BMC administration will be supportive.”
