Early Times Report
Jammu, May 16: With men and machinery pressed into service to improve the façade of the city ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to preside over the convocation at Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agriculture Sciences and Technology Jammu, the department concerned is only doing up the road to be taken by the PM's cavalcade while road from University to village Chatha Pind, which is a stretch of 2-3 kms is in dilapidated condition and without macadamization for the last 10 years.
The work on blacktopping and white marking of road from Airport to SKUAST-J started nearly two weeks ago. People were amazed to see the sudden makeup of area till they came to know about the visit of Prime Minister in the area. However, Chatha Pind, which falls under Gandhi Nagar constituency, is just before 500 meters from SKUAST-J, having 700 families residing in the village. It has stretch of 2-3 kms from main road which is in totally dilapidated condition, big potholes have made the stretch accident prone, has not been blacktopped for the past 10 years.
Radha Devi, who is a resident of Chatha Pind and runs a boutique just by the road, while narrating the ordeal, said that it has been more than seven years of her marriage in this village and since then the condition of the road is same and has never been blacktopped. Vijay Singh, another resident of the village maintained that road to their village which is just 3 kms from Airport is in very bad condition. He alleged that concerned MLA has visited the area 4-5 times for public meetings, and every time in his meeting he assured that the work will be started in next one or two weeks but nothing happened which shows the non- seriousness of the leader.
Disappointed with the neglect of the government, the villagers regretted that their road could also have been black topped in the garb of PM's visit.
