Asar Colony seeks drainage completion
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Mar 9: Residents of Asar Colony Hazratbal said they have been facing inconvenience for the past nearly two decades due to lack of proper drainage system in the area.
A delegation of residents complained that due to lack of drainage system the colony is inundated even with the slightest rainfall. “The colony remains waterlogged for most part of the year due to rains and snow, and despite residents facing severe inconvenience, the authorities have shown no concern,” the residents said.
“Walls of several houses in the colony have developed cracks due to the waterlogging, and residents, particularly school going children and elders have a tough time while trying to negotiate their way through the mud-filled road,” they added.
“At the time of last assembly elections, Dr Mustafa Kamal during a visit to the colony promised to resolve the drainage system issue in 18 days, but to no avail,” the residents said.
They appealed the concerned authorities to look into the matter.
