Residents of Old Post Office lane Bota Kadal Lal bazaar have alleged that district administration has failed to dewater their area due to which they are stuck in their homes.
Residents told Greater Kashmir that they called up Deputy Commissioner Srinagar and apprised him about their plight. "It seems our pleas fell in deaf ears," they added.
Locals are demanding that administration should install High speed water pumps as the water has entered their homes. " This is really an apathy, despite various SOS calls to District Administration, They have not sent High Speed Water Pumps. Due to recent Cloud burst at Bagi-Ali-Mardan khan which is only 800 Mts away from here and drainage failure and LAWWDA's inability to dredge the Amda Kadal tributary of Nigeen lake , the water level has increased drastically, there is a continuous threat to human life and property , the water has entered various houses , some people have even shifted," they added.
We tried reaching MLA Zadibal, but unfortunately his cellphone is not reachable.
