Digiana lacks civic facilities, locals tell Munish

Early Times Report

Jammu, June 12: Bad roads, fused streetlights, scarcity of water and sewerage system being in shambles are the some common problems that plague several lanes of Digiana area.
Editor of Early Times, Munish Gupta, who is going to contest upcoming Assembly election as an Independent candidate from Gandhi Nagar Constituency, on Wednesday met people from all walks of life of Digiana areas including Ward No. 58, 45, Chib Mohalla and its adjacent lanes of Digiana Ashram during his mass contact programme and listened to the problems being faced by them.
During the door to door campaign, people told Munish that uncovered filthy nallah which empties all the drains of their locality has made the lives of thousands people miserable. "Despite repeated complaints to JMC officials for cleanliness of nallah the officials seem least bothered about it," said Amrit Kour, residing in Ward No. 58, just nearby the filthy nallah.
She said that just before the Municipal Corporation election, the elected Councillor (Parmjeet Singh alias Pummy) had kick started some civic works but after getting elected from the area he abandoned all the works due to unknown reasons.
"Last year's devastating Monsoon rain damaged my lone room. Since then I am running from pillar to post to get compensation. Every time, officials of Revenue department and Natural Disaster Management just give assurances. However, I have two daughters, one is one year old and other is five year but no one has been covered under the central sponsored scheme like Ladli Beti and Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana (SSY)", said Kuldeep Kumar, residing just nearby the Government High School Digiana.
Sumit Sharma told Munish that three months ago, the PDD department had installed a transformer of 400 Kv just five feet away from her home entrance. We raised objection and asked them to relocate it but they (PDD officials) ignored our genuine pleas and added that the naked wire and sparks generating from the transformer has made our life hell.
Urmalla a septuagenarian, residing near the Vishawakarma Chowk said that from last many years, she has been making rounds of Social Welfare Office and local councillor to get her old age pension but her pleas have fallen flat into deaf ears.
Satveer Singh, residing near the Digiana Ashram said two months before, the PWD department had blacktopped our lanes and constructed a drain which flows through the adjoining road but now it has been uprooted, drain has been choked at various points, streetlights have turned defunct.
We have complained about the lack of basic civic facilities to the JMC innumerable times. Till date, no action has been taken by JMC concerned to improve civic amenities.
