GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Feb 23: A day after a high level team of officials led by Divisional Commissioner, Dr Asgar Hassan Samoon visited Karan Nagar to take stock of various problems being faced by traders and locals, some of families whose land is coming under proposed road widening appealed him to get the compensation cases settled at an earliest.
A woman owning land near Municipal Park Karan Nagar said: “For the past over three decades, my family was neither allowed to undertake any construction nor any compensation is being paid to us.”
She said: “This is injustice with upright citizens otherwise we too could have come up with a commercial complex they way many others did in the past 20 years of turmoil.”
“We could have earned a considerable amount out of the land but the authorities have rendered it a dead horse for us,” she complained.
Similar were the complaints of a brother duo, who said they too have been waiting for compensation.
They appealed Dr Samoon to personally look into the matter.
Pertinently the Divisional Commissioner accompanied by Chief Engineer, R&B Kashmir, Collector Land Acquisition, Srinagar and officers of SMC on Tuesday visited Karan Nagar and “took stock of various problems being faced by traders and people”.
An official handout said the Divisional Commissioner listened to the “grievances of the traders and on spot instructed the concerned officers for solution of problems of traders”.
A deputation of 22 traders met the Divisional Commissioner whose trade has been affected due to a building in front of their shops. Dr Samoon assured the traders that their problems would be looked into adding that “either the building would be demolished or alternate steps would be taken for mitigating the problems of the concerned traders.”
