Early Times Report
Drabshalla, May 25: Drabshalla-Chalasu -Bimalnag road is one of the most dangerous and risky link roads of chenab valley region and streches through various higly populated villages oncluding Dhar, Lass, Khori, Neju, Kukerwas, Loundry and Tatani, and also connects three major panchayats having a population exceeding 12000 with Tehsil and block headquarters. The road ends at Bimalnag one of the most beautiful and sacred religious place of Chenab valley.
Thousands of people travel on this road but due to the apathy of PMGSY department and contractors this road is waiting for completion since a decade, and the general public of this highly populated area are facing hardships.
After completion of first phase of excavation and digging of road, no progress has been made yet. Work on this road was started phase wise more then a decade ago, in order to connect most backward and hilly regions including holy shrine Of bimalnag with Batote kishtwar national highway at Drabshalla.
The road passes through most dangerous and slippery areas, the gorges at some places are more than thousands of meters deep.It becomes more dreadful during rain as the road becomes slippry and passengers have to travel on the risk of life with mostly unexperienced drivers.
In April 2016 a tender was invited by Govt with a work value of Rs 54,65000 for upgradition and laying of 50 mm thick bituminous macadam and 25 mm thick prefix carpet. But for unknown reasons the work is still under process and the problems common masses are not coming to an end.
It is worth mentioning that three time MLA Inderwal and former R&B minister GM Saroori has not done much.
Speaking to Early Times, locals of various panchayats alleged, that they feel unsafe while travelling on this road during night hours.
The locals have urged the officials of PMGSY to visit the places of construction to take note of the mess.
