Dachnipora Welfare Forum, Srigufwara, in district Anantnag, has urged the government to address the issues of the area comprising nearly fifty villages.
The Forum which met under the chairmanship of Abdul Rashid Mir at conference hall Khiram Dargah held a daylong discussion on the issues the area is confronted with.
People from different walks of life participated in the discussion.
The speakers demanded a degree college, a power grid station, a sub district hospital, a mini fruit mandi, and a soil testing laboratory for the area.
“Thousands of students of this far flung area have to travel long distances to reach the nearest degree college which results in wastage of their precious time and loss of hard-earned money,” they said.
The Forum reiterated its demand for opening of a girls’ higher secondary school in the area saying in absence of the school, the girl students have to face a plethora of problems as the transport facility is poor.
While the speakers deplored the dilapidated roads and poor supply of electricity, they sought an immediate attention of the government towards the horticulture sector which is the mainstay to economy of the people of the area.
The agriculturists and the horticulturists of the area, the Forum said, are in dire need of technical support and marketing facility in the area.
