Hazratbal shopkeepers seek ‘better sanitation’
Srinagar, May 30: The Hazratbal shopkeepers at Auqaf Shopping Complex are up in arms against the Wakf Board authorities for “not providing efficient drainage system, due to which their trade is badly hit”. They also complained of lack of public convenience.
“There are more than 200 shops in Auqaf Shopping Complex here and due to the lack of efficient drainage system the rain water seeps into our shops affecting our business” Altaf Ahmed a shopkeeper said.
“We have time and again appealed the Waqf Board authorities to set up the proper drainage system and also erect a few loos here but it appears that our frequent appeals fell on the deaf ears” he added.
“The absence of latrines is a big inconvenience,” they said.
The traders have appealed the authorities to look into the matter.
Meanwhile, a Waqf Board official pleading anonymity told Greater Kashmir that the construction of drain in the Auqaf Shopping Complex Block A would be taken up soon.
