Baramulla, June 18: The residents of old town Baramulla Friday demanded completion of pending work on the wedding hall in the area.
Situated at Bagh-i-Islam Baramulla, the wedding hall comprises of two big halls, space for slaughtering of sheep besides a parking lot and two rooms.
Though civil work on the building has been completed, electric work besides maintenance of lawn and other small work is pending for the past more than a year.
Resultantly, the wedding hall has not been been made functional yet.
“Only 20 percent work is left, which if completed will make it functional for public use,” said Musadiq Ahmad, a resident of old town Baramulla.
The locals while expressing displeasure over the failure of the authorities to finish the pending work on the wedding hall said that the timely completion of the building would be a huge favour for the people of the old town.
“The residents here are facing severe hardships to perform social gatherings due to scarcity of space. If the building is completed, it will benefit the entire population of old town Baramulla,” said Bashir Ahmad, a resident of Mohalla Mir Sahab.
The construction for the wedding hall was initiated by the Baramulla district administration 6 years back keeping in view the crowded and congested topography of the area.
The Auqaf-i-Islamia Baramulla donated the land for the wedding hall while the J&K administration initiated the work on the building project.
