“This mohalla is just 10 kms from Srinagar but it’s deprived of basic amenities, which is visible from dilapidated roads and absence of drainage system due to which the entire area gets waterlogged,” they added.
“Government talks about Smart City, Digital India but the condition of the road speaks something else. This is a very important road as it goes towards the dispensary also,” said Shabir Ahmad.
