Panchkula, June 12 (Pooja Goyal):
A liquor vend has come up near CBSE office and WelcomHotel Bella Vista in Panchkula’s Sec 5. The CBSE office is just a few feet away from the liquor shop & is having a negative impact on students who visit the CBSE office for their work .The women staff of the CBSE office and WelcomHotel Bella Vista too are facing a lot of concern for their safety. The location chosen for setting up the vend presents an unethical side of the business and is having a retrograde effect of the high profile gentry of the Hotel, who also find the vend as an eye sore in an otherwise very picturesque locale presented by WelcomHotel Bella Vista.
Local residents have been raising their voice against the vend in their area and have called upon the administration to find an alternative location for the vend. However no action has been taken for redressal of their woes. Drunk people often create ruckus and women who pass the lane feel unsafe.
Anmol, a school student & a visitor to CBSE office said, “It is a wrong message given by the authorities as many young school students visit CBSE office on a daily basis.” Shruti, a guest at WelcomHotel Bella Vista stated, “The location of vend must be changed as in the evening i have seen an unhealthy crowd gathering around the entrance of hotel, which makes the women unsafe and unsecure.”
In this regard the HUDA must look into this serious problem regarding safety and security of women& children. Moreover, it is now a demand of the local residents, visitors to CBSE Office & women staff of the WelcomHotel Bella Vista to relocate the liquor vend with immediate effect.
