Bilal Colony residents appeal authorities

Residents of Bilal Colony Soura and Nowshera on Saturday urged the administration to accord sanction to construction of community hall on already identified land in the locality.

A delegation of residents said Housing Board has categorically notified that the three identified plots were vacant in the locality.

“A report has also been submitted to the Housing and Urban Development department in 2017, but some vested interested and land grabbers are frequently attempting to occupy the plots. Two FIRs have also been registered by police station Soura in 2016 and 2017 in this regard. These attempts have been frequently averted by the locality and by six local bodies/committees,” they said.

The residents urged the administration, particularly Principal Secretary, Housing and Urban Development department, Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, MD Housing Board to accord necessary sanction for construction of the community hall at the identified place.
