Islamabad town sans public urinals, lavatories
Islamabad (Anantnag), Jan 10: Residents of this south Kashmir town have complained of the lack of urinal facilities and public lavatory.
“The town being largest in the state and a hub of commercial activities sans any urinal facility and lavatory as a result of which people have to face tremendous hardships,” said the residents.
They said that due to the absence of urinals people are forced to urinate on road sides which later gives pungent smell, attracts insects and stray animals and becomes the cause of various diseases.
“The Municipal Council Anantnag is the largest in the Valley and generates lot of revenue but that ironically is being paid as a salary to the employees in the council who have been appointed fraudulently rather than being utilized for development of town,” said a resident, Muhammad Altaf.
He said the authorities should immediately construct urinals and public toilets near busy markets and hospitals.
“There is an urgent need of constructing public toilets and urinals at General Bus stand, Achabal Adda, Lal Chowk and near District hospital and Maternity and Children hospital,” opined the residents.
Residents have sought the intervention of DDC, Islamabad into the matter.
