People of Charung village in Thanamandi  of District Rajouri today staged protest and kept main road blocked for almost an hour raising slogans against government departments. The protesters of the area were demanding  road connectivity to their village.

In the morning, protesters accompanied by elders of the village blocked main road of Thanamandi and stalled vehicular traffic. Raising slogans, locals said that the proposal of road construction to their village was mooted years ago but there is no development on this and their village is still deprived of road connectivity. These people also alleged that their village has been deprived of road connectivity due to political reasons and no one is taking care of their problems.

Later during the day Iftiqar Talib,SDPO ,Thanamandi reached on the spot and pacified the situation by assuring protesters that their issue will be taken before concerned authority and thereafter protest was called off.
