Dalgate inhabitants miffed at slow pace of drain construction
Srinagar, Feb 18: Inhabitants of tourist hub Dalgate here have expressed strong resentment over inordinate delay in construction of a drain there.
A delegation from the area said the UEED dug up lanes and by-lanes there nearly over two months ago.
“The pace of drain construction is too slow. The road leads to Chest Diseases hospital besides many localities here and a graveyard at Malteng. Due to inordinate delay in completion of the drain, we face immense inconvenience. We many times apprised the UEED senior officials and concerned contractors to expedite work on the drain however our requests met with deaf ears,” the delegation said.
“Inordinate delay in construction of the drain has drastically affected our business. Besides many people have been injured after slipping into dug up roads and uncovered manholes,” a group of shopkeepers said.
The inhabitants said they had also approached the Divisional Commissioner Kashmir and Deputy Commissioner Srinagar to look into the matter. “Ironically, there was no response and the drain is still incomplete. We for the last time appeal the concerned authorities to complete the drain at the earliest otherwise we would be left with no option but to stage protest against this discrimination,” they said.
