Construction of sports stadium on Nallah evokes resentment
Pulwama, Mar 1: The proposed construction of sports stadium on Nallah Sallar at Nazimpora Keller here has evoked strong resentment from the farmers.
“The Nallah irrigates thousands of kanals of land and the construction of stadium would stop the flow of water,” the angry farmers told Greater Kashmir adding “The agriculture land would turn barren and hundreds of people will lose their livelihood,” the farmers added.
They said the farmers from Ahgama, Pirpora, Cheldrn, Tamlahaal, Sazan, Allopora, Rakh, Adoora, Nopora, Zasoo and Shadipora would get adversely affected due proposed government move.
The farmers threatened to launch an agitation if government started the construction work on the stadium. “The authorities are pushing us to walls and if they started the work on the project, we will take to streets,” Bashir Ahmad of Tamlahaal village told Greater Kashmir.
ACD Shopian, Rafiq Ahmad Phaphoo, who is also in charge BDO Keller said that water in Sallar Nallah is still flowing as usual and it has not been filled up for the construction of the stadium.
The farmers urged the district development commissioner to allay their apprehensions.
