Inordinate delay hits Nehru Park drain construction
Seek DC’s intervention
Srinagar, Apr 3: Inhabitants of tourist hub of Nehru Park have expressed strong resentment over inordinate delay in construction of a drain there.
A delegation from the area said work on the drain started in December last year. They said officials of the Urban Environment Engineering Department (UEED) had assured them that the drain would be constructed by February 28, before the start of tourism season.
“Ironically, the work has been left half way and the dug up road causes immense hardships to locals and tourists. Due to inordinate delay in completion of the drain our business has been severely affected,” said the delegation which also comprised of shopkeepers and hoteliers of the area.
They made a fervent appeal to District Development Commissioner Srinagar Farooq Ahmad Shah to look into the matter and directed the UEED authorities to expedite work on the drain.
