Bandipora: Belying the Government’s tall claims of equitable development, Ajas the second largest Panchayat block in Bandipora is craving for basic amenities causing immense hardships to the inhabitants.
 Inhabitants of Ajas said that despite reminders the authorities have failed to provide basic facilities including drainage, potable drinking water and proper roads.
 “The major problem faced by people here is lack of potable drinking water supply. We had taken up the matter many a times with the concerned authorities but to no avail,” said Sarpanch Panchyat Halqa Ajas Waseem Bari.
 “The authorities have failed to construct a reservoir and filtration plant. We receive untreated water and occasionally insects pour out of taps,” the locals said.
 Having a population of over 35,000, Ajas sans basic healthcare facilities. Though there is an old health care centre but it doesn’t have adequate staff and facilities.
 “In absence of healthcare facilities we face immense problems and have to move to district headquarters for even minor ailments,” the locals said.
 The locals said the Government had initiated construction of Community Health Centre. “But work on it is going on at snail’s pace,” they said.
 The road network in Ajas is in a dilapidated condition. Most of the roads leading to Tangpatri, Matipora and Chravan are dotted with potholes.
 The power supply system is also in shambles.  “As a result we face unscheduled power cuts. The low lying transmission lines pose risk to our lives,” said Mushtaq Ahmed a local.
 The aggrieved residents threatened to go on infinite strike if the authorities failed to provide them with basic amenities.
 When contacted the Additional District Development Commissioner Bandipora Ghulam Muhammad said a team of officers would be sent to the area to look into the grievances of the people.
 “On the basis of the team’s report requisite action would be taken,” the ADDC said.
