Dilapidated Hajin-Sopore road irks locals
HAJIN: The bad road condition in this town is taking toll on the health of the commuters who continue to suffer with the administration failing to meet their demands for years.
The Hajin-Sopore road lies in a dilapidated condition due to which they have to face various difficulties.
“The road has big pits all through Sopore. It is in shambles to the extent that rain water keeps on accumulating making them wells of slush. Even the drivers don’t agree to ply on them,” said Waseem Majid, a local.
He said the road remains closed during winters due to constantly flowing mud water. “This is the only road through which we have a direct link to Sopore. Although Winter has not started yet, the road is showing the signs of closure,” Waseem said. He said he had been updating the status of the road through his Facebook profile but claims it had no impact on the authorities.
Locals said the road has been in the dilapidated condition for a long time and no official has turned to them on this matter. “We have tried every now and then to persuade the authorities to restore the road but they have turned completely a blind eye on its renovation,” said a local Zubair Rashid.
Students of the town, who study at Degree College Sopore, said they were facing problems in reaching to the college at official timings. “It takes us almost two hours to reach Sopore which otherwise is half an hour ride. We have been suffering for a long time now,” said a 1st year student, Muhammad Wajahat-ullah adding problems caused by the road during examinations were affecting them head-on.
When contacted, Deputy Development Commissioner Manzoor Ahmad Lone said they didn’t get any complaint from the area about the road. “Locals should consult executive engineer of the district and then the necessary action will be taken,” he said.
