Batamaloo bus stand to get facelift soon
Dr Qasba tours City, assures development
Srinagar, Mar 23: During an on the spot visit of the general bus stand at Batamaloo, Srinagar Municipal Corporation, Commissioner, Dr GN Qasba acknowledged the public complaints that the spot was in mess and needs immediate facelift.
The transporters and others present there told Dr Qasba, who holds additional charge of Vice-Chairman SDA that even though they pay daily around Rs 5000 revenue towards SDA, the place frequented by thousands of commuters was in a dilapidated condition.
Endorsing their views, Dr Qasba assured them that the place would be given a facelift soon.
“We will also add to sitting place for passengers apart from constructing separate loos for men and women,” Dr Qasba said. “This has to be the finest bus stand,” he added.
Later, he conducted a whirlwind tour of old City, the Shaher-e-Khaas to take stock of sanitation and other activities.
During his interaction with the Srinagarites at Nowhatta, Eidgah, Rajouiri Kadal and GurGarhi Mohalla, he said there was a dire need for “huge awareness in these densely populated areas.”
He directed the officials to install atleast 30 streetlights in GurGarhi Mohalla.
Dr Qasba further directed the officials to come up with the repairing of link roads particularly the narrow lanes, locally called Kochas.
“Kochas have been our traditional walkways for centuries, they need to be kept well in place,” he assured the old City locals.
He also took a tour of the Tibetan Colony in Eidgah and directed the officials to speed up with the ongoing construction.
