Many residents of Teetwal, Tangdhar and Karnah, who spoke to Greater Kashmir, want the Chief Minister to keep his word and address on priority the difficulties they face. “Since the Chief Minister personally visited the areas of Karnah and Tangdhar and assured us that our grievances would be addressed, we are hopeful to see this happening very soon. We are a poor community who deserve special attention of the state government,” said a group of residents.
