3rd Cross Road Old Gagribal residents appeal Div Com
‘Provide us with basic amenities’
Srinagar, May 29: Irked by the inaction of the concerned departments to provide basic civic amenities in the area, the residents of 3rd Cross Road Old Gagribal have urged the Divisional Commissioner Kashmir to look into the matter.
A delegation from the locality near the tourist hub of the Boulevard said the area from Jamia Hanfia Masjid to Receiving Station sans streetlighting and drainage.
“In absence of streetlights, it becomes difficult for us to move through the lane particularly during evening. The road near the Masjid usually remains waterlogged due to lack of drainage. Besides the lane which was macadamized over four decades ago has developed potholes hampering smooth vehicular and pedestrian movement,” the delegation said.
The residents due the locality’s proximity with forests, the area is frequented by wild animals.
“The wild animals enter the locality by climbing atop a kerosene depot and heaps of garbage dumps near the Masjid. The problem is compounded as the dumping of garbage near the kerosene depot attracts a large number of dogs. Though we have been approaching the concerned departments to resolve these issues, but there has been no response yet despite past of many years. We make a fervent appeal to the Divisional Commissioner Kashmir to look into the matter and redress the grievances at the earliest,” they added.
