Encroachments galore in Zakoora colonies
Srinagar, Mar 16: Around half a dozen colonies in Gulbabagh-Zahoora belt are facing dearth of civic amenities including roads, drinking water supply, electricity. The affected colonies include Mustafabad, Rangpora, Syed Colony, Hamza Colony, Bismillah Colony, Bilal Colony and Abu Bakar Lane.
The residents of these colonies complain that massive encroachment of roads, lanes and bylanes is on in the area and the Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) and Srinagar Development Authority (SDA) are looking other way round. “It is an irony that even the Industrial Estate Zakoora is being slowly encroached with no action being taken by the authorities,” lamented a local resident Arif Salfi.
The residents have now sought the intervention of the new SMC Commissioner Dr GN Qasba to prevent the area from getting choked with encroachments.
