Nowpora complains of ‘excessive road widening’
SEEKS CM'S INTERVENTION
Srinagar, May 24: The residents of Nowpora (Khayam Road) have appealed Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and the local MLA to re-look into the ongoing road widening between Dalgate and Zakura under the Circular Road widening project.
The residents said more area than what was prescribed under the notification was being taken for widening.
“As per the project the widening (from 40 feet to 68 feet) of the existing age old road between Dalgate and Zakura was to be undertaken. But from Nowpora (Gousia Bridge to Kohnakhan) the proposed widening is around 100 feet, which is arbitrarily unfair and above normal widening limit of 68 feet.”
“Our business establishments, shops, residential houses are getting adversely affected by this excessive widening from one side of the road. We want to know why only one side of the road is being widened, even as the other side of the area was marked by the concerned authorities in the same notification,” the residents argued.
“Our livelihood is getting destroyed by this harsh road widening plan. Also, the compensation provided by the concerned authority is very meagre."
“The residents added : "Price that they are offering to our residential houses, land, business establishments, etc. is very paltry (not even 30% of market value) to practically purchase anything from it.”
They appealed the Chief Minister and MLAs of Khanyar and Habba Kadal to look into the matter.
