Kupwara: The residents of Mir Mohalla, Kralgund area of Handwara Monday expressed anguish over the decision of the Roads and Buildings (R&B) Department of leaving the Mir Mohalla link road unmacdamised even after the department blacktopped other lanes in the area.
The residents alleged that the department had intentionally left out the link road unattended.
“We are unable to figure out why this particular link road has been left out even after the department carried out the cleaning process, a prerequisite before blacktopping,” a local said.
Abdul Khaliq of Kralgund said that earlier this week, officials of the R&B Department arrived and started cleaning and cutting the road and informed the locals that the Mir Mohalla link road would be macdamised.
“However, soon they left the spot and haven't returned since,” he said.
Sarpanch Bashir Ahmad Mir said that the road connects several households. “We tried to reach several officials but our efforts went in vain,” he said.
