We want to bring it into the notice of the higher ups thatdespite clear cut directions to cut the Poplar trees the administration atGovernment Degree College Bemina is not taking any steps to axe hundreds ofpoplar trees in the college campus.

We request the district administration and concerneddepartment to initiate action so that the people residing close to the BeminaDegree College heave a sigh of relief.


Improper address on electric bills

The electrical bills are sent to various localities inRainawari on the address of "Puj Mohalla". I want to inform the concerned AEEsub division, Rainawari that  "PujMohalla" is known as "Hassi Bhat." The adjacent mohallas to Hassi Bhat (PujMohalla) are NaidBooni, Naidyar, KalwalMohalla, Zind Shah Mohalla etc. whichare also put in the same category Puj Mohalla. It is, therefore, a wronginterpretation to address every mohalla adjacent to Hassi Bhat as "PujMohalla."

We request the PDD and AEE concerned to make the necessarycorrections in the bill records and give proper name of the mohallas instead of"Puj Mohalla."

Provide network coverage

We the residents of Dahwoth Batpora Gulzarpora Pulwama arefacing hardships with respect to the mobile network connectivity particularlyAirtel, Jio and Vodafone. We have submitted many complaints to these operatorsbut all in vain. Even we lodged a complaint with the JK Grievance cell. Thecomplaints were forwarded to the concerned DC last year. And finally thecomplaint was closed without any solution. Though our village is 2.5km from theexisting network site of these operators still we are in trouble. Many times wehave been told by the representatives of the companies  that more towers will be installed but tilldate their assurances have remained confined to papers only. We once again requestthe concerned authorities to get this issue resolved at the earliest.
