Behadi, Amrohi villages crave for basic amenities
Tangdhar: Belying tall claims of the Government to undertake equitable development of Kashmir, people of Behadi and Amrohi villages here near the Line of Control are craving for basic amenities.
Situated nearly 20 kilometers from Tangdhar headquarters, Behadi and Amrohi villages san proper roads and healthcare facilities.
In absence of roads people here use ponies to travel and ferry eatables and firewood. “We have to pay hefty amount from our hard-earned money to ferry eatables from Tangdhar and other places. During rains and snowfall we face difficulties as we have to travel through forest and even cross streams,” inhabitants of the villages said.
Behadi and Amrohi also san proper healthcare facilities. “Health centers in our villages are only for namesake as they sans infrastructure and medicos. We are forced to walk down a hillock to travel to Tangdhar in case of medical emergencies and this had led to many death and injuries in past some years,” they said.
“During elections politicians promised to provide us with basic facilities including road connectivity. But after assuming power these politicians including our legislator have forgotten their promise,” they said appealing the Deputy Commissioner Kupwara to redress their grievances.
