Dilsoz Colony seeks repairs of defunct drain
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, June 20: Residents of Dilsoz Colony Natipora are up in arms against the Srinagar Municipal Corporation authorities for what they said “depriving a big chunk of population of the colony of benefits of development and civic facilities.”
The residents said after a gap of 28 years, the civic body started paying attention to the civic needs of the colony comprising of nearly 60 houses.
“However, instead of repairing the collapsed slab of the defunct drain, it has ordered upgradation of a portion of the link road to benefit a contractor and oblige a few residents,” the complainants said.
The residents claimed that they have been requesting the civic as well as other authorities for the last three years to repair the collapsed slab of the drain, which became defunct soon after it was constructed in 2006-07.
They added that no attention was paid to the link road since 1982.
In 2006-07, residents approached the then MP Omar Abdullah, who sanctioned funds for construction of the drain.
“But the drain failed and its slab collapsed as a result of which the water enters into our houses,” the locals argued.
The residents said that apart from other concerned authorities they even approached the local MLA and MoS Housing Nasir Sogami.
“Last year he visited the colony and promised to rebuilt the drain. But the promise remains a promise,” the locals said.
