Dear Editor,It is very sad to say that Jammu Municipal Corporation does not have proper equipments to repair defunct street lights but always claims to have resolved all issues of residents. Despite several complaints and requests, the issue of non-functional street lights have not been addressed till date.Street lights in outskirt area are defunct for past many weeks, due to which residents are facing a number of problems during night time. It is surprising that nobody in JMC is bothered about non-functional street lights. It is pertinent to mention here that a few months back, some street lights were repaired but within few days these lights again stopped functioning.Residents, especially senior citizens and children, face inconvenience during late evening and night hours due to darkness in streets. Poorly-lit streets or those without any lighting pose a danger to citizens, especially women and all those who do not use any mode of transport. People are left with no option but to pass through such stretches, taking each step with constant fear of danger lurking in some corner. At most of times, their guiding light is torch of their mobile phones or headlights of vehicles passing by.Non-functional streets-lights are dangerous for residents. A well-lit street would reduce fear besides making the street welcoming for women and senior citizens.Through your esteemed daily, I would like to request the concerned authorities and corporator of our ward to kindly look into the matter and do the needful so that we can move freely without any fear, even during night.Ashu Sharma,Greater Kailash, Jammu.
