    I was under the impression that the new mayor of Ludhiana would prove to be good for the city. But his first inaction has made it clear that the impression was wrong and that we have a person at the post of the city mayor as bad as as any other , what with all those surely illegal hoardings of congratulations on his success staring at us every few metres. Enough numbe of days have passed and congratulations are now stale. Remove those hoardings and get down to some serious work , Sir.

    Since Ludhiana is one of the cities earmarked to become Smart city, it is important that problematic & unauthorised eyesores are removed without wasting much time like 1. Mush rooming of 'Rehris' on all possible roads (right in front of shops) & some public places leaving no space for shoppers to park vehicles. Mostly due to unchecked influx of migrants into Ludhiana (increasing every day). 2. Slums at number of places since many years now. E.g. on road behind Sec 38 i.e. between Sports Complex & Lovely restaurant & also near Transport Nagar alongside NH No1. 3. Un authourized Auto rickshaws (main source of pollution)Hope concerned authorities take a serious view of these points if we are keen to see Ludhiana as a smart city....Thanks

    Two prominent crossings on Ludhiana Chandigarh road (amongst others) i.e. One near Jamalpur Police station/police quarters, Rajan Property Dealer & the other one Jamalpur Chowk itself do have Traffic Lights fitted but seldom seen working/on. It will help commuters on this very busy road in case these lights could be kept on & functional between 07:00hrs to 21:00hrs.....Thanks
