Residents of Ganga Arcadia society in Thite Nagar in Kharadi are troubled due to open drinking by people near the wine shop, located next to the society, frequent quarrelling, loud noises etc, which has created an unsafe environment for citizens.

Speaking to Pune Pulse, a resident of Ganga Arcadia, requesting anonymity, said “We have given multiple complaints to the police regarding the same but no action has been taken. Complaints are simply closed. Police are not even visiting the location. This open drinking issue has become a great concern. There is a walking plaza nearby which is meant for people to walk. However, it is possible only in the daytime. After dark, several people purchase alcohol from the nearby liquor shop & keep drinking there due to which it becomes completely unsafe for people to walk in the area.”

As per further information from the complaint letter by residents, the citizens have raised objections on below points:

·         Safety of Women who are working in the near area and returning late in night from office is a concern

·         Children who pass by or go to academic class feel unsafe 

·         Recently, the residents have observed people engaging in mob fights after getting drunk in front of the society’s main gate, which is a big safety concern to residents.

·         Alcohol bottles are thrown on the road, people are sitting on the steps and drinking alcohol. Four / Two wheelers are parked on the road, leading to daily traffic chaos. In fact, one side of the road is completely blocked.

·         Conditions are further worsening causing garbage issues, mosquitoes etc.

·         Current atmosphere is toxic and we all residents are afraid to go outside.

The residents have requested the police’s urgent attention in this matter before it goes out of control and suspends the license for the existing wine shop.

Manisha Patil, Police Inspector, Chandannagar Police Station, said “We have instructed our officers to frequently patrol the location. Also, we have sent several warnings to the wine shop owner.”
