Karnal, June 15

The project of the state government of replacing streetlights with LED bulbs to save power and money is in limbo for the last four months.
The Karnal Municipal Corporation (MC) has already scrapped the decision of the Urban Local Bodies Department of replacing the streetlights with LED bulbs as it will be a costly project and burden to the state exchequer.
The authorities concerned, as per sources, are in a dilemma whether to follow the department or the MC. However, they have stopped the replacement of lights and have asked the officials concerned to only get the lights repaired wherever it is required.
Sources claimed that the residents, who had been demanding replacement of streetlights with LED bulbs, would have to wait longer.
There are 15,357 points of streetlights in the city, of which 9,873 fall under the MC limits, while 4,820 are in HUDA area. As many as 664 streetlights in HUDA areas have been replaced with LED bulbs. While for the remaining, the department has allotted tender to a company with the condition of maintenance of lights.
Renu Bala Gupta, Mayor, said the MC had unanimously dropped the plan of the department as it was a costly project.
Manoj Wadhwa, Deputy Mayor, said the plan of the department was not feasible, so they had scrapped it.
Rajiv Mehta, commissioner, MC, said they had no option, but only to repair the existing LED bulbs.
