Pune, 24th April 2024: Residents of Kalyani Nagar, Wadgaon Sheri, and Koregaon Park in Pune have voiced their frustration and announced a stance of non-participation in voting due to ongoing issues with noise pollution caused by local pubs and late-night clubs. Despite repeated complaints and appeals to authorities, the situation has not improved, leading residents to feel neglected and disillusioned with the electoral process.

Numerous residents have expressed their exasperation with the lack of accountability from commercial establishments and the authorities responsible for enforcing regulations. Families in these areas are bearing the brunt of incessant noise disturbances, impacting daily life for senior citizens, students preparing for exams, and individuals seeking peace at home.

According to residents, the problem persists year after year, with promises of change during election periods falling short once politicians are in power. The sentiment among many is that voting seems ineffective in addressing their day-to-day challenges unless genuine action follows words.

The Kalyani Nagar and Wadgaon Sheri Residents Association has specifically highlighted the impact of pubs from North Main Road, Mundhwa, which continue to contribute to noise pollution despite complaints to relevant authorities. The frustration peaked with the approval of an open-air event featuring Vishal and Shekhar, scheduled for April 27th, 2024, at Royal Palms Pune, further exacerbating residents’ grievances.

Residents are adamant that without tangible solutions to address noise pollution and the disturbances caused by local establishments, they are opting out of the voting process as a means to demand genuine action and change. This situation underscores the deep-seated concerns of citizens grappling with quality-of-life issues amid apparent regulatory inaction.
