GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Aug 5: The residents of Nowhatta living on the western end of Jamia Masjid are up in arms against the Srinagar Municipal Corporation’s Right River wing saying the engineers have been dilly-dallying the much awaited repairs of the drains in the area.
The locals said the foundation of their houses have been affected by the dampness due to defunct drains.
They said the SMC had been resorting to “step motherly treatment to the area.”
The locals accused the SMC officials of being concerned towards the “particular pockets of the area where the some workers of a ruling political party live.”
“Others have been left to fend for themselves.”
Pertinently some months back the SMC Commissioner had said the drains would be repaired. But till there has been no breakthrough.
