Gojwara lanes in shambles
SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI
Srinagar, Sep 14: The residents of Malik Sahib, Gojwara in Shahr-e-Khaas are up in arms against the authorities for failing to repair the land and by-lanes (locally called Kocha) in the area.
A delegation from the area told Greater Kashmir the lanes and bylanes in the area are in a dilapidated condition for the past over a decade while the Srinagar Municipal Corporation has failed to provide them respite.
“The lanes are in a bad condition for the last over a decade putting the people to inconvenience,” the residents said.
They said the bylanes were in a bad condition even though they link to the hillock shrine of Hazrat Makdhoom Sahib (RA).
While referring to the Urs celebrations, the locals said they have to face immense inconvenience walking the dilapidated lanes.
Azad Ahmad a resident of Gojwara Malik Sahib said: “It is too difficult for the children and the age old to venture out of their homes as there is every possibility of slipping on the rough roads.”
Besides, he added, that the poor drainage system causes more of inconvenience.
When contacted SMC Executive Engineer Works had his own take on the issue. He wants that this scribe should bring an application filed by the residents before him only then he would “see”. “Bring the application of the complaints before me. After that I will look into the matter,” the official told Greater Kashmir.
When the matter was brought into the notice of SMC Commissioner Sheikh Mushtaq he said “strict action will be taken under rules against the official.”
Also he assured that the grievances of the Gojwara residents would be looked into on priority basis.
