Old town demands marriage hall
Islamabad (Anantnag), Jan 10: Residents of this south Kashmir town have urged the authorities to construct a marriage hall in the town.
“Residents of old town face tremendous problems during marriage and other functions at their homes, due to paucity of space,” said Adil Sheikh of Malaknag. He said that at times they are forced to organize the marriage ceremonies at their relatives’ homes putting up in new colonies or civil lines.
“The town has about 10 lakh population and is highly congested. People in the old town areas of Malaknag, Kadipora, Reshi Bazar and other places don’t have enough open space to erect tents during marriage ceremonies or other functions. So, the authorities should consider constructing marriage hall in the town,” said the residents.
They suggested that the Iqbal Park at Iqbal Market can be utilized for constructing a marriage hall. “The park is the property of municipal council and its condition is pathetic. For most part of the year it remains filled with water. The municipal authorities should improve its condition and construct a marriage hall there. Furthermore, it can also provide parking facilities to the public as it has enough open space,” opined the residents.
They urged the authorities to construct community and recreational centre.
When contacted the District Development Commissioner Farooq Ahmed Shah said: “The proposal for construction of marriage hall is on cards and we are soon going to identify the land for the purpose.”
The DDC said that he has sought the details of the available land of Iqbal Park at Iqbal market from the Municipal authorities.
Regarding the construction of community cum recreational centre, the DDC said that land for the purpose has already been identified near Hanfia Eidgah.
