Srinagar, July 26: The residents of Iqbal Colony, Mehjoor Nagar have accused the government of “step-motherly” treatment towards them in development activities.
They said drain in the area was pending for many years adding that they many a time approached the Legislators of the ruling National Conference.
“During elections, they had promised to construct a drain in our colony but soon after assuming power, they forgot their promise,” said a local Niaz Ahmed, flanked by others.
They said: “Waterlogging is a common sight in our colony and it has now become a reason of street quarrel.”
The residents appealed the National Conference President Dr Farooq Abdullah to look into the matter.
