Sanzipora residents seek road repairs
Sanzipora (Budgam), Dec 13: The inhabitants of Sanzipora here have accused the government of failing to repair the roads.
According to the locals, the district administration recently provided Rs 75,000 to the R&B Division Chadoora for minor repairs and filling of pot holes on the one kilometer road stretch connecting the Imambara with Muradpora.
“However, the officials filled these potholes by using material carried only in three trucks,” the residents said, adding the less amount of material failed to make the road smooth for vehicular movement and the people were still facing hardships.
Last year, during Muharram, the district administration gave Rs 60,000 for the same work, which was done ‘efficiently,’ they said.
“But this year, the work has been substandard,” the locals alleged.
According to them, Srinagar-Gowherpora road, which connects Sanzipora with main road, is also in pathetic condition.
“The R&B department spent more than Rs eight lakh on its repairs last year, but the road condition deteriorated further this year,” a local Altaf Hussain told Greater Kashmir, adding “We want that social audit of R&B department must be done in the village so that corrupt officials and contactor nexus is exposed.”
When contacted, R&B Division Chadoora Executive Engineer, Nazir Ahmad Tak said, “The work is still under progress in Sanzipora and it will be completed within a weeks time.”
