Early Times Report
BARAMULLA, Feb 5: At a time when the weatherman has forecast a fresh spell of rain and snowfall in Kashmir from Tuesday, there are scores of villages in Baramulla district which are still cut off from the district headquarter. According to sources that, the authorities concerned have failed to clear various roads in Baramulla district and with the result, villagers from far flung areas of Baramulla district have remained cut off from their thesil and district headquarter.
Nisar Ahmad of Kanlibagh Baramulla told Early Times over the phone that there are dozens of villages in the upper reaches of Baramulla including, Katinwali, Pachhar, Gohan, Chandoosa, Sultanpora, Shumlaran, Faqhirbagh, Doudbough, Rajpora, and Vehidina that are still cut off from district headquarter.
"From Baramulla-Kanlibagh, around 1.5 kms of road is not yet cleared by the concerned departments, it becomes difficult for vehicles to move towards the upper reaches, as the road is very slippery, and there remains a chance of accident, said Nisar Ahmad. He said that, the R&B and Mechanical Division Baramulla has failed to clear the road so far, adding the residents of various upper areas are facing difficulties to reach district headquarter.
However sources further said that there are again dozens of villages in Boniyar thesil that are closed due to carelessness of concerned department, as the roads were not cleared after recent snowfall.
Local residents of Limber, Babagail in Boniyar thesil faces the same callous attitude from the concerned departments, as huge public money has been drawn in the name of snow clearance. Shahkote-Limber, Babgali road is full of snow, and it gives tough time to the locals to reach thesil headquarters, and PMGSY has failed to clear the roads so for.
Javid Ahmad of Limber said that the R&B and other departments concerned are still in deep slumber, and they are least bothered about the problems that are being faced by students, patients and womenfolk of the area.
Since the first snowfall in Kashmir, the local residents of these border areas are still confined to their homes, said Javid.
Pertinently the weatherman has forecast a fresh spell of rain and snowfall in the Kashmir Valley on Tuesday.
The weatherman said moderate snowfall is likely to occur in the valley from today afternoon.
