Islamabad (Anantnag), June 22: The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) activists today staged a sit-in protest at Achabal area of this South Kashmir district against the dilapidated condition of the roads in Shangus constituency.
The demonstration was led by the MLA, Shangus-Utersoo, Mansoor Ahmad.
The protesters while shouting slogans against the government threatened to launch massive agitation if the work on the Achabal-Chatapal road, which was left midway last year, was not taken up immediately. They also demanded macadamization of all the roads of the constituency which according to them were dotted with potholes.
“People are facing immense hardships due to the dilapidated condition of the 22 kilometer long Achabal-Chatapal road. Though we have been time and again requesting the government about its repairs, but they are playing politics over it,” said MLA, Shangus, Mansoor Ahmad.
He alleged that the constituency had been ignored on all fronts since the present coalition government took over.
“When we were in government, Mufti Muhammad Sayeed had envisaged to bring scenic resort of Chatapal on tourist map, but now due to the ill planning of the present regime, the plan has been jeopardized,” Mansoor added.
