SOS from Indira Nagar:Cantonment Board in slumber!
WE THE SRINAGARITES
The incessant rains have not only tested the patience of Srinagarites but the hardships are equal across the summer capital. Take our case. Much unlike the Srinagar Municipal Corporation which has to manage a huge area of the City, the Badami Bagh Cantonment Board has to look after a few colonies near the cantonment. But Indra Nagar, the colony just adjacent to the Cantt area, presents a picture of chaos at the hands of disciplined armed forces.
Nobody from the Cantt area in particular, than to talk of the so called Elected Board Members bothered to look into grave problem of waterlogging. The drains have a reverse gradient and one can easily see the water flowing towards the electric transformer ( See picture) located beside the cantonment wall.
There’s a possibility of a tragedy. Even though the roads are given some facelift every year, nobody bothers to look into the problem of drainage failure, which should have been a priority of the people at the helm of affairs. Somebody save our colony!
