Early Times Report

Jammu, June 25: Resident of Deep Nagar, Kunjwani Talab at Ward No. 55 are up in arms against the authorities as well as the councilor, who they said, have utterly failed to provide basic amenities in these areas.
"Bad lanes, by lanes, choked drains, dysfunctional streetlights and low voltage are common problems that plaguing the people", locals told Editor of Early Times, Munish Gupta, who would be contesting the upcoming Assembly election as an Independent candidate from Gandhi Nagar assembly constituency.
Munish on Tuesday interacted with people of all walks of life during his extensive mass contact programme. During the campaign residents of the area narrated their problems that confront them on daily basis. Munish assured them all their grievances would be addressed on priority basis if he wins the elections.
Sneh Lata residing near the petrol pump of Deep Nagar told Munish that the PDD installed 250 KV transformer in their locality when it had limited houses. Now the houses have increased manifolds but the transformer has not been upgraded by the PDD, resulting in low voltage. "All streetlights installed in our lane don't work due to low voltage," said Jasbeer Kour.
Chajju Ram told Munish that a streetlight was installed just at his entrance but it stopped working many months ago. "Our repeated pleas have fell flat on deaf ears. Drains are choked, safaikaramchari comes occasionally. However, before the MLA Kavinder Gupta was elected, the safaikaramcharis used to visit our area thrice in week but after Kavinder got elected, sweepers stopped coming", said Abhiridham.
Jasvinder Singh said that due to absence of dustbin in our locality, residents dump all garbage and scrap in front of my home, the stray dogs and foul smell emanating from the garbage making our live miserable. "A sewerage nallah passing along the lane is not cemented. It has turned into a breeding ground for misquotes and flies. The foul smell has made our lives misersbale", informed Swaran Singh.
"Five houses in our area have no potable water supply due to PHE department not paying any heed towards our repeated pleas," said Ranjit Singh.
Rattan Kumar a local shopkeeper at Kunjwani Talab told Munish Gupta, few days back, the PWD blacktopped road from Kunjwani to Dental College but they left our market lane which is also in shambled condition from last many months. "The lanes and drains of Kunjwani Talab are in dilapidated condition, the drains are filled with filthy water. The flow of drains has been stopped as these pass through Army Cantonment area of Kunjwani and the issue of blocked drains was raised several times before local administration but they never heed to matter, resulting during monsoon, our drains have been converted into fish ponds which hinder the flow of movement", said Santosh.
