Bekasi flood victims demand action from property developer, administration

first_imgThe residents, grouped under the Harapan Indah Housing Forum, demanded three things, according to their press release on Sunday. First, they demanded the developer PT Hasana Damai Putra Group and the Bekasi administration take responsibility for the flooding that caused material and other damages. Second, they demanded the developer carry out mitigation efforts against future flooding. Finally they asked for the administration to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the housing projects built by the developer, especially with regard to drainage.  The housing forum claimed that the drainage did not work optimally, allegedly due to bad planning and the absence of a sluice system, for which the developer was at fault. There was an apparent difference between the conditions on Jl. Nusa Indah and Jl. Garden Indah, because of the failures of Hasana Damai as a developer, the press release claimed. Since the start of the year there have already been three floods, which have claimed two lives as a result of electrocution.The negligence of the administration was also highlighted in the housing forum’s demands given the recurring nature of the flooding, which led residents to feel that the administration had failed to create a safe and comfortable living space. (ydp) Flood victims in Bekasi, West Java, are demanding that property developers and the Bekasi administration take responsibility for floods at the weekend in several neighborhood units and to carry out mitigation efforts to prevent future incidents. The heavy rainfall on Saturday night and Sunday morning inundated four neighborhood units at the Harapan Indah Housing on Jl. Nusa Indah. The flooding, up to a depth of around 1.2 meters, killed one, cut off electricity and forced a number of people, especially the elderly and families with young children, to evacuate as late as Sunday night. center_img Topics :last_img read more

Powered by Firework Poor air quality could see the Indian team miss their crucial outdoor training sessions at the Arun Jaitley Stadium before the opening game of the T20I series against Bangladesh. The national capital has always been in controversy due to the air pollution post Diwali and it looks like the Men in Blues will spend more time at the gym before Sunday’s game. Team India, who have two training sessions planned are scheduled to arrive in New Delhi on October 31.Advertisement Image Courtesy: firstpost.comA source close to the board confirmed that the afternoon sessions on November 1 and 2 could turn into optional sessions, but a final decision will be made after taking a look at the weather on Friday.“The match shouldn’t be a major problem as it is a night match, but the issue is the training (set for the mornings) and you could see optional training sessions on both the days if the weather doesn’t improve. This isn’t a fresh season and the players have already been playing so some gym sessions should be enough to get them up and running after the Diwali break. But again, all that depends on the weather conditions” he said.Advertisement “We have been keeping a check on the weather forecast and while the sun didn’t come out on Tuesday, it is showing sunny on Friday, so in that case, training shouldn’t be a problem. Once the sun comes out, things will hopefully be sorted and in that scenario, we will have full training sessions,” he further mentioned.Questions were raised after Delhi’s air quality turned ‘severe’ during Diwali and many even asked whether the BCCI would change the venue for the opening game. However, a senior board functionary denied those queries and confirmed that there would be no change in the fixture.Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more
