Poor transport services trigger protest in Pulwama
Pulwama, Apr 4: People today staged protest at Tahab here today against poor transport services in the district.
Hundreds of protesters including students took to streets at Tahab and shouted slogans against the Transport department for failing to provide better transport services in the district. They also blocked the Pulwama-Islamabad road for hours together.
“We have been facing immense inconvenience since past month due to unavailability of regular transport services,” said Inayat Ahmad, a student who was among the protesters.
The protest ended after the Deputy Commissioner Pulwama Shafaat Noor assured to look into the matter.
“I assured the students that we will make suitable transport arrangements for them,” the DC said.
