Najafabad, Garipora sans public park
We the Srinagarites
The non-availability of public parks has added to the miseries of the residents of Najafabad and Garipora in Bemina. The residents here are in dire need of a public park because after a year or more there may not be suitable space available, which can meet their general requirements.
Presently, in these areas construction work is going on at a fast pace. Houses and shops are eating away the free land area. The remaining vacant land is being filled with soil and fenced either for residential purposes or for commercial activities.
I am in no way against these constructions but one thing that really concerns us all is that if the construction work continues like this there would not remain a single plot left for public use. At least there should have been a specific space or park specially earmarked which could be useful for people of these areas where the locals can enjoy in leisure.
Mostly, the children of these areas are seen roaming on roads. Sitting on shop pedestals and playing on roadsides is common pursuit of children here. Parents of these children are very much concerned because the same route has consumed four lives including thee students in last two months in traffic mishaps.
These grievances need to be addressed for the benefit of entire area. The government officials especially SDA officials should come to the rescue of these people. The SDA officials should acquire a piece of land for parks. The park could be useful for many important activities like marriages, and even funeral prayers.
