Old Gagribal sans basic amenities
SO NEAR YET SO FAR
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, June 6: Situated near the tourist hub Boulevard, the 3rd Cross Road locality of Old Gagribal sans proper drainage, street lighting and civic facilities causing immense hardships to its inhabitants, the residents said.
They also complained of living under constant fear of the wild animals who freely roam in their compounds from the nearby forests.
“In absence of streetlights, we can’t venture out in the evenings. The wild animals cross the fence by jumping over a kerosene depot near Masjid. We had apprised the authorities about the matter but no action has been taken,” they said.
“If there is loss of human life or property by wild animals the authorities will be responsible for it,” they said.
They said in the absence of proper drainage, the waste water flows on the road. “We have only seen the authorities on newspapers and TV channels claiming to develop the area. But on ground the situation is deteriorating fast,” they said. “In absence of proper civic facilities, we are forced to dump the waste and left over food in open. It seems we are living in a village,” they added.
