Where unsafe buildings — posing threat to occupants and the neighbourhood — are concerned, old city localities with narrow lanes having decades-old dilapidated buildings score over the rest of the city, where a majority of buildings are comparatively in a better condition. Some three years ago, an old building had crumbled in Mohalla Thapran, in which one person was killed. Thereafter, old buildings, either deserted or occupied, had collapsed at the Old Sabzi Mandi Chowk, Nikka Mal Chowk and Deepak Cinema Road even though here was no loss of human life. However, the MC officials maintain that demolition, or for that matter any follow-up action, on such unsafe buildings is easier said than done. Till such time that the MC rises to the occasion to perform its assigned task diligently, city residents have been left to fend for themselves from the danger posed by unsafe buildings.
