Munawarabad complains of encroachments
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, June 12: The residents of Munawarabad road linking Naqashpora Chowk Barbarshah with Baba Dawood Khaki Bridge have alleged that encroachments were going on unabated there.
A delegation told Greater Kashmir that the concerned officials were allegedly hand in glove with the encroachers.
“Not only people have managed to construct shops and houses on the interior notified area of the Brarinambal lagoon, but during the past few months, the road has been encroached upon by some shopkeepers, making the movement of pedestrians and vehicles difficult,” the residents said.
Despite repeated representations, they said, the concerned officials failed to do anything substantial. As per a cabinet decision, the delegation said, the road from Dawood Khaki Bridge to Naqashpora Chowk was to be developed as a “four lane for making the Circular Road System functional.”
“But unfortunately due to some misunderstanding and lack of coordination between LAWDA and R&B, the project has been suspended, which has facilitated encroachments,” they said.
The residents sought the intervention of Divisional Commissioner, Dr Asgar Samoon in this regard.
