Jammu, June 24: Unplanned developmental works, chocked drains and construction material scattered here and there give a somewhat vandalized look to Qasim Nagar of ward 47.
The residents of the area informed Early Times team during visit at Qasim Nagar on Monday, that they are facing water and electricity problems in the area. "Contaminated water is being supplied in the area for a long time, we have repeatedly informed PHE authorities, but our genuine concern remained un-noticed", they said and added that the residents are suffering for last few months due to ongoing works of laying sewerage network in the area.
Angry over deflated civic services in the locality in their Ram Pal Verma, Veena Devi, Sant Kumar Attri, Ashwani Kumar, Ramesh Kumar, Ramesh Chander, Ajay Raina, Prakash Raina, Harbans Sharma, Ajay Kumar, Shravan Kumar, Rinku Sharma, Joginder Paul, Gopal Sharma, Alka Gupta and D C Gupta no one is taking care difficulties being faced by them.
"Though we appreciate the initiative taken by the administration, but un-planned work has made our life miserable, we cannot take out our cars, as the roads/lanes laying dug up for long time", they said and added that the concerned agency has completed works of laying the sewerage line between both ends of the lanes/roads three months back, but further are not removing the material laying over here.
"All the drains in the locality are filled with filth and construction materials and filthy water is flowing on lanes and road", they said and added that they recently appraised the Councilor ward 47 about their problems, who assured them take actions, nothing has been done so far. "Within two or three days, blockage of all the drains will be cleared, after a month her promises could not see day lights", said the residents and added that the attitude of the Councilor is totally contrary to Prime Minister's vision of new India with committed administration.
