Srinagar, Aug 3 (GNS): Residents of Sector-F Iram Lane Natipora Srinagar on Wednesday expressed serious concern over the dilapidated road conditions and accused authorities of turning a deaf ear to the “sufferings” faced by them.
A delegation of people from the area said that they have been demanding authorities to give them at least something “which can be called a road”. “If they have paucity of funds or for any other reason they cannot lay a concrete road or black topped-one, at least they should give us a road worth name,” the delegation said.
The residents claimed that the locality comprises about 400 households, and said that in absence of the proper road, they are facing numerous problems, more so when it rains or there is snowfall.
“Every time it rains, the natural or muddy road turns into a pool. Even a motorcycle gets stuck into it, let alone light motor or heavy vehicles etc,” they said, adding, “We are facing immense problems to take patients to hospital owing to the lack of a proper road. Transportation of goods to the area also gets hampered.”
The residents said that a number of representations were made by them to the concerned authorities but to no avail.
“We made representation to Commissioner Srinagar Municipal Corporation as well as other concerned authorities but nothing concrete has happened on the ground,” they said and urged the authorities concerned to lay a road to alleviate sufferings facing the people. (GNS)
