SYED IMRAN ALI HAMADANI
Srinagar, Sep 8: The residents of Khawaja Yarbal, Saida Kadal in the City are up in arms against the authorities for "failing to improve road, drainage and power networks in the area".
A delegation of residents led by Welfare Committee Shahabad said: “Dilapidated roads have been putting us to inconvenience for the past several years. And the onset of wet season has again furthered our woes.”
“During rains streets remain inundated in kneedeep waters making the movement difficult particularly for aged, women and children,” they complained.
Ali Muhammad, a resident said: “We are suffering from the chest related disorders due to the dust.”
The delegation said dilapidated roads there mock at the government claims to providing civic amenities to the Srinagarites.
The inhabitants appealed to get the area roads macadamized."
The Welfare committee said: “The problem with the area is that the narrow drains are chocked, due to which sewage has started overflowing on the lanes and by- lanes.”
There are about 500 houses in Khawja Yarbal, Shah Abad, where this problem of overflow of drains is taking place unchecked.
As a result, locals of the densely inhabitant area, have to face immense inconvenience while coming out the houses and moving around on the waterlogged streets.
“As of now the water is seeping in the basement of the residential houses”, the locals said.
Farooq Ahmad Khan a resident said: “The muddy water flows from Koh-e-Maran Fort towards the locality during rainy days.”
The residents sought proper drainage system for the locality.
The locals said “The main supply lines of the transformer have decayed.”
“There is every apprehension that the transfer could be damaged if it’s not replaced.”
They appealed the concerned Executive Engineer PDD to look into the matter.
