Residents plan to seek vehicle damage compensation from ERA
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Apr 11: The Economic Reconstruction Agency is again in news for wrong reasons over delay in the timely completion of drain in Hyderpora suburb. This time the irked residents of Gulberg Colony there plan to seek compensation for damages caused to their vehicles because of the roads left non-motorable by the ERA work.
Some months back the ERA got the road leading to various sectors of Gulberg Colony dug up and the locals were left with no option but to reach their homes via a vacant land.
The ERA, as per the locals, didn’t bother to provide a “decent makeshift road” to the colony.
Instead, the project executing agency got some earth filling done by leveling a portion of the land with mud dug out from the area during drain construction.
The mud loosened due to rains making the movement of vehicles difficult on the track.
“My car was damaged as it got stuck in the mud and finally I had to call a crane to get it out of the mess,” said Muhammad Ali a resident adding that he would seek compensation from the project executing agency. Many others voiced similar complaints.
When contacted an ERA official said the people would have to bear with the problem of road connectivity till the work is completed.
But if the plight of adjoining areas like Lal Del Colony is to be seen, the ERA assurance seem to have proved a hoax in the past.
Despite assurance from the concerned Superintending Engineer that the roads would be repaired, the LD Colony roads are in shambles and just some days back residents staged protests against ERA when a local died and mourners found it difficult to shoulder the Jenazah.
