Tral residents stage protest against bad roads

The residents of Tral Thursday staged a protest demonstration against the dilapidated condition of Tral-Satura road and blocked the main road.

The protesters said the Tral-Satura road, which connects the main town with tehsil Aripal, “is in a shambles for the past around a decade.”

“The ongoing work is going on at a snail’s pace,” said Nazeer Ahmed, a local.

Locals assembled near Wagad, Satura and at several other locations and blocked it for traffic with barricades. They raised slogans against public works department. 

When contacted, deputy commissioner Pulwama Ghulam Ahmad Dar said the matter will be resolved very soon. “So far people had never come to my office with this problem,” he added.
