Poonch Mandi: The people of a locality in Saujiyan Khet, a border village of Tehsil Mandi of Poonch district, are still waiting for basic facilities of life even in this advanced age. 

The residents of the area have said that neither electricity is being provided to the people in their locality nor there is the availability of clean drinking water.

Hitting out at  PRIs, locals said that the Government provided solar lights  but they were not supplied in  houses which are yet not connected with power supply. Local residents Mohammad Aslam, Shabbir Ahmed and Mushtaq Ahmed said that their area faces an ordeal.

"In order to get water one has to walk for a  mile," they said. " We also receive no benefit under the PMAY of the Rural Development Department and there is no one in the office to listen to our plight," said another local resident.

The people of the area expressed their concern over the insensitive approach of the Government.

Local population made a passionate appeal to the Jammu and Kashmir LG administration to listen to their plight and address their issues at the earliest.
