People from several remote areas in this district today demanded Adhaar enrolment centres in their native places.
The residents of Marwah, Warwan, Chatroo, Trigham, Thakrai, Mughalmaidan, Dacchan, Padder, Bounzaw, Keshwan and other villages, said they were facing immense problems in getting themselves enrolled for the aadhar.
They said they have to come down all the way from their respective villages to Adhaar centre at Kishtwar town. "Our children and womenfolk face inconvenience in this way," they said.
They said that the district administration should set up Adhaar facilities/centres at village, panchayat and block levels so that people won't suffer.
The residents also demanded special Adhaar camps for disabled persons. "The administration should introduce mobile vans for physically disabled persons so that they are able to enrol for and get aadhar," they said.
"It's for the second day that we are in this queue. Yesterday we came in the morning and after spending a day in the queue returned to our hotel without being able to get ourselves enrolled," a group of claimants said.
"We are students. Our study suffers due to this. If it is compulsory, the government officials should visit at our schools to enrol us," a group of students said.
They said that as Aadhaar is essential for many things, "government should make such efforts so that the people don't face any difficulty in getting themselves enrolled for it."
"The administration should start mobile Aadhaar registration centres which will go door to door and get citizens registered for Aadhar," Abdul Hamid Sheikh said.
