‘Ignored Bagh-e-Ali Mardan Khan cries for attention’
IN the earlier ‘80s, 90 Feet road (popular as Nammath) from Biscuit Factory (Alamdar Chowk) Bagh-e-Ali-Mardan Khan towards Akmal Bridge was constructed by the government with a view to divert the entire vehicular traffic onto this road from existing Nowhehra – Soura road.
But as ill luck would have it, the work on this project was left halfway rather deferred because of reasons best known to the government.
As a result of non-implementation of the proposal on the part of government, several industrial units situated there have encroached upon main road much under the nose of law enforcement agencies without any fear or threat as none of the concerned agencies especially municipal authorities have taken notice of such unlawful action. Neither they came forward for demolishing of the illegal structures. Thus Nammath has shrunk to a large extent day-by-day because of the obvious reasons.
In view of such grim situation, the Commissioner SMC, Sheikh Mushtaq is requested to take stock of problem on the spot and issue immediate orders for demolishing of the illegal structures as quickly as possible.
There is one more problem being faced by the residents of this area together with hundreds of people of adjoining colonies on account of non-availability of medical facilities as even a private medical shop exists nowhere in the area.
The patients have to cover a long journey even to buy a simple paracetamol tablet as and when required.
As already requested a number of times an allopathic dispensary also needs to be established in the newly constructed government building located just adjacent to marriage hall at Nallabal near bridge so that the whole habitation of the area could get medicare all the times.
The Minister for Health and the Director Health Services and MLA Zadibal constituency are requested to address the problems of the people, once for all.
