Top brass walk sewage overflow at media hub
GK CITY CORRESPONDENT
Srinagar, Jan 10: The promptness of the authorities could be gauged by the fact that for the past over a year, sewage along with human extra overflows the Media hub street at Mushtaq Memorial Press Enclave in the City centre. The problem was highlighted by the media many a time. But till now there’s no respite.
As of now, more of human extra overflows the street exposing the lackadaisical attitude of the authorities, particularly the Estates department while mediamen have no options but to walk the ugly, unhygienic street, everyday: 24*7*365.
The visitors to the media hub also have been facing the same inconvenience. And on Sunday, the government top brass including local MLA and MoS Housing and Urban Development department, Nasir Sogami had to bear with the nauseating experience.
The MoS accompanied by his colleague Javed Ahmed Dar and others including Divisional Commissioner, Naseema Lanker and the City police chief, Reyaz Bedar had to do what the media men have got used to: The government team lowered the gaze and made a brisk walk to get rid of the mess.
But the team, which had come to meet senior journalist Altaf Hussain in connection with the attack on GK lensman Aman Farooq, had to undergo the experience twice.
One while entering the enclave and the other obviously while leaving.
