Inhabitants of Hariganiwan and several other adjoining localities in Kangan area of center Kashmir's Ganderbal district Saturday staged a protest demonstration to demand a J&K Bank branch for the area.
The protestors assembled on the Srinagar-Leh highway and blocked for some time in the morning. The protestors demanded a J&K Bank branch for the area.
The protestors said the residents and the traders from the areas were suffering due to absence of a bank branch.
They said they had to travel a distance of 10-15 km to reach the nearest J&K bank branch at Gund and Kangan.
The protesters appealed the chairman J&K Bank to look into their demand.
