Sagar seeks restoration of water supply in Downtown

Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Tuesday stated that “sloppy disposition” of divisional administration has left people yearning for basic facilities. 

“Sagar who toured many localities including Khanyar was apprised by the local residents about the slack attitude of the incumbent administration in mitigating their problems. There is no accountability on ground. The fate of the vital projects which were initiated during the NC-led government has been put into a limbo. Srinagar has conventionally suffered on development front whenever NC has not been in power. We are aware of the development needs of the city,” he said.

“Srinagar city is the face of our state, unfortunately the former BJP-PDP government didn’t rise up to the demands of the historical city. Nevertheless, when in power the party will come up with a comprehensive plan for the all round development of the city and its people,” he said adding, “the district administration and concerned agencies have miserably failed to upkeep the community halls, parks and other vital infrastructure of public importance in the historical city,”

“People have apprised me about shortage of drinking water in Shaher-e-Khaas.  I have made stopovers at various places and where I went I found people aggravated due to the absolute shortage of drinking water. The taps in the old city of Srinagar are running dry. Women in particular are finding it difficult to run their kitchen in wake of water shortage. I urge the district administration to ensure steady supply in the Shahar e Khas areas of Srinagar,” he said.
