Sub: Problems faced by a city like Kanpur
Through the column of your esteemed daily, I want to highlight the problems faced by our city, Kanpur.
The city has to cater to the demands and civic amenities of millions of people. It must have basic infrastructure and civic facilities. Good transport facilities, mass housing projects, a scientific sewage system and good drainage are some of the basic requirements of the residents. Another important issue is to provide pure and clean water for drinking to the general public. A network of good roads helps in streamlining the transport system and the traffic. The medical services should be readily available at reasonable rates in government hospitals. Unfortunately, all these infrastructures and facilities are conspicuous by their absence in Kanpur city. Unplanned urbanization, encroachments, illegal constructions and frequent violations of the law have made Kanpur a huge slum not suitable for human
While preparing any blueprint of a modem city the emphasis must be laid on the superstructure and the infrastructure. Only by updating and upgrading the sewage, drainage, transport, water and electric conveniences and medical facilities we can make Kanpur a pleasant place to live in.
