The people of Thanamandi today staged a protest demonstration against the district administration in general and BRO in particular for being lethargic towards dilapidated condition of the roads in the area.
While taking out a protest rally from bus stand Thanamandi to Shahdra Chowk, the protestors also blocked Mughal road amid sloganeering against BRO.
They alleged that the BRO is unmoved over the dilapidated condition of the roads. "The project for restoration and widening of road from Rajouri to Bafliaz via Thannamandi was sanctioned one year ago, but till date not even a single stone has been touched," said locals, adding due to indifferent attitude of the concerned officers; the people of the area, besides tourists have to face inexplicable problems.
They further maintained that due to shabby condition of the road, the people have to cover a distance of 30 minutes in more than two hours.
Meanwhile, the protestors threatened the government to start work of restoration and widening within 15 days otherwise they will go for massive agitation.
