Early Times Report

Jammu, July 1: The residents of Gorakh Nagar locality have been worst affected by choked drains, garbage along narrow lanes and water-logging during rains but the political representatives of the area never bothered to visit the area.
The residents of Gorakh Nagar Suresh, Jia Lal, Lal Chand, Yash Paul, Gokul Ram, Dwarika Nath, Khazan Chand, Pawan, Sunder Singh, Sunial, Ved Prakash and Mohan Lal informed Early Times that rainy season was round the corner but there was no measure taken by administration to address the issue of water logging during the rains.
"Whenever there is rain, flood water makes its way into Gorakh Nagar main lane from the Bahu-Fort road. The rain water brought garbage, filth, polythene carry bags and other wastage along with it and dumped it in the Gorakh Nagar main stand", they rued.
They further informed that they have been demanding a permanent solution to the problem of water logging during rains but nothing has been done. Moreover, the main stand has not been repaired for the last few years, whereas recently the Irrigation and Flood Control department had de-silted the canal, passing through the locality.
"For de-silting the department had brought earth movers, which entered into the canal after breaking a bank of the canal. After de-silting they had not repaired the broken bank while the road has also been damaged by them", the locals said.
The locals also narrated the problem of choked drains in the locality, from where foul smell emanates. "Garbage gets accumulated at the corner of the drains, which leads to its choking. The choking led to accumulation of water, which breeds insects and mosquitoes and it also emanated foul smell", the locals said, adding that the politicians of the area, have not bothered about the problems of the area and they were only interested during the time of elections", they said, adding that politicians didn't do any work and people have to fend for themselves.
Many of the lanes have not been repaired for the last few years and those lanes, which were dug up, the waste material was not lifted by the agency and the dug up bricks have been dumped along lanes.
