Karimabad inhabitants allege govt indifference
Says area lacks development; receives contaminated water
Pulwama, Sep 6: The inhabitants of Karimabad here have accused the government of indifference saying the villagers were facing tremendous hardships due to the consumption of contaminated water and dilapidated road condition.
According to the inhabitants, the supply of contaminated water by the Public Health Engineering department has made them susceptible to various water borne diseases and no serious efforts were taken by the government to address the issue. “The potable water supplied to our village from Mitrigam is contaminated and people are forced to consume the drinking water which poses a big threat to their lives,” the residents alleged.
The residents said the dispensary in the village had only one ISM doctors and three paramedics, and staff strength was a big handicap to provide a satisfactory medical care to the inhabitants.
The village with a population of nearly 4000 people is a part of Rajpora constituency and is included in rural development block Kakapora.
The residents said the condition of the roads traversing across the village is dilapidated. “The R&B department has miserably failed to improve dilapidated road connectivity and same holds true for the PDD department for poor transmission network in the village. They added that condition of interior road links in the village is also pathetic,” Abdul Gani Pandit, retired School principal told Greater Kashmir.
MLA Rajpora, Syed Bashir told Greater Kashmir that the village had been provided with three electric sub stations but the consolidation and reinstallation of the transmission lines was impossible at this juncture as equipment was not available with the department.
The MLA said the village dispensary shall be upgraded as public health center in due course of time.
He however, said the macadamization of Karimabad roads would be carried out in near future.
