GURGAON: Exasperated with the callous attitude of HUDA authorities and unable to find solutions, residents of Sector 50-51 have started an online signature campaign to demand streetlights in their area.

These residents have been fighting for the past year to get streetlights installed on a two-km stretch near Nirvana Country. They suspect HUDA is unwilling to install them on the road, which is owned by them, as the properties on either side belong to private builders.

“For the past one year, we have met all officials concerned in HUDA starting from the administrator, Praveen Kumar. They have been making all kinds of promises and giving every possible excuse for not installing these streetlights. There is not a single streetlight on this stretch and as a last resort I started this online signature campaign this week to pile pressure on them to act. Already we have received over 100 signatures. Apart from this, we also plan to hold a dharna and candlelight vigil to make our protest known,” said Manoj Khera, who started this campaign on

“At first the HUDA officials said the streetlights could not be installed on the sides but had to be fixed on the median. They asked us to wait till the road was widened and a median constructed. We waited. After the median was built, they said it was narrow and the base on which the streetlights need to be installed could not fit on it,” Khera said.

Despite repeated attempts by TOI, the HUDA administrator could not be contacted.

Last year, a similar campaign was launched by residents of Palam Vihar, demanding streetlights in their area. Soon after the campaign was launched, HUDA installed the lights.
