He said that due to the short-sightedness of the Mussoorie Dehradun Development Authority, the condition of Dehradun has deteriorated. The roads of Dehradun are not passable. Parking facility is not available anywhere. Roads and lanes have become narrow. Commission is being looted in construction works. If physical inspection of the work done by Mussoorie Dehra Development Authority is done from time to time, then the situation would not have been very pathetic. Money is being misappropriated in the name of beautification of parks. The condition of the parks remains the same. It is necessary to take concrete steps to prevent corruption in the authority.
UKD Executive District President Kiran Rawat Advocate said that the investigating agencies should probe the assets of MDDA engineers. Also, affidavits of declaration of assets on behalf of all officers should be submitted under the employee code of conduct. Metropolitan Executive President Anil Doval said that Mussoorie Dehradun Development Authority should discharge its basic duty. Ensure your role in making the city a parking-rich, park-rich colony and a green city. (News continues, see next paragraph)
