Iqbalabad for drainage, road repairs
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Oct 7: The residents of Lane 4, Iqbalabad Bemina have complained that the colony lacks proper road and drainage network.
They said the main road leading to the colony was scheduled to be macadamized by the Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) this year.
“But, even though the winter is approaching, work has not been started,” said Javed Ahmad, a resident.
He said last year the work on the drainage network was started by SMC but left half way.
“The absence of road and drainage puts us to inconvenience and even though we many a time apprized the authorities there has been no breakthrough,” said the colony President Nazir Ahmad.
He said even a mild drizzle makes this road unapproachable during rainy season particularly winters.
“Last year we pooled money and repaired some potholes but that couldn’t provide much of respite,” he added.
“Finally we approached Roads and Building department as well. But not an iota of development took place.”
The residents appealed the Minister of Urban Development and Mayor SMC to look into the matter.
