Many trees have been axed from a local city park to put up hoardings. This has angered the residents. Meanwhile, the Deputy Commissioner (DC), Sangrur, has ordered an inquiry.

Parminder Singh, a senior citizen, who comes to park for walk, alleged that axing of trees had taken place with the connivance of some officers.

"Trees on the front side of the park have been axed, which shows that there is no fear of the law among the wrongdoers. Unipoles can be put up in front of trees without axing them," said Sarjiwan Jindal, former BJP Municipal Councillor, Sangrur.

Three unipoles have been erected in the park after axing trees from the top. This has also endangered many full grown trees whose branches have got entangled in the unipoles. The axing could have been avoided if the unipoles were installed on the front side of the park, towards the outer wall.

"The park is not a private property of anyone, but it belongs to the state government and the residents. The Nagar Council has not taken any action in this regard. We will start a protest if the administration fails to act," said Avtar Ealwal, AAP leader.

Ramvir, Deputy Commissioner, Sangrur, said, "I have ordered an inquiry and sought a detailed report from the officers concerned."
