The parks of the city were losing attraction for citizens especially families due to poor security arrangements as there were no trained security guards have been deployed under the supervision of the Parks and Horticulture Authority (PHA).

More than 79 parks were being supervised by the Parks and Horticulture Authority (PHA) where only 70 to 80 security guards have been deployed with no weapons and no proper training.

These guards were actually gardeners, cleaners and other staff members of PHA who were performing the duties of security guards along with their own duties.

The guards have been given whistles, yellow jackets and caps only to deal with any emergency-like situation.
