Clogged drains, dilapidated roads irk us: Residents tell Munish Gupta

Early Times Report

Jammu, July 5: The residents of Nanak Nagar have been grappling with various civic issues which remain unaddressed causing inconvenience to them making their living difficult.
Munish Gupta, Editor Early Times, continuing his mass contact programme, who would be contesting upcoming assembly elections as an independent candidate from Gandhi Nagar constituency today visited various part of Nanak Nagar and informed them about his vision. The residents of Nanak Nagar Sec-8, 9, 6 welcomed the move of Munish Gupta and assured him to extend their support to ensure his win.
Most of the drains, roads, lanes of this area are totally dilapidated. "The drains of this area have never been cleaned and repaired due to which dirty water goes nowhere and overflows which enters into houses. The garbage dumps are not lifted by the concerned authority, which creates nuisance for the people living nearby. The non seriousness of the department can be well imagined from the fact that it has not installed bins in our area. The PHE supplies water after 3-4 days for 10 minutes which causes severe water shortage. It has been more than a week that we have not washed out clothes. Due to broken, filthy drains, rats have increased their population and enter into houses. Our lanes are very narrow and we had asked the department to cover the drains with grills so that more space be made but our request was not entertained," said Manjeet Kour of Sec-8, Jaidev, Janak Singh, Santosh, Ramesh Lal, Satvinder Kour, Harmeet Singh, Ranju Sharma, Surjeet Singh, Mela Ram, Wahida, Shakuntla, Parkash Chand, Anju Sharma, Shakuntla Devi, Nand Kishore, Sunita, Ashok Sharma.
"The drains and lanes were constructed a year ago, which were not cleaned since then. Recently we spent from our own pocket for its cleaning as it was emanating foul smell and making difficult for us to sit outside," Avatar Singh said further adding that they want that an efficient person should represent our constituency who could sort out our civic problems. Expressing serious concern of the main drainage of the Nanak Nagar, Sabita Amla said that there is flood like situation whenever rains come. Due to rain water the entire nallah is full of water which enter in the houses adjoining it through their outlet points. The problem has been the biggest nuisance for the residents living nearby it.
"It has been 45 years since my birth; the road of my area has not been blacked topped till date. The PHE water supply is also very poor, which comes after two-three days. We want that our drains, lanes should be cleaned properly and timely. There are huge potholes in the road which have never been filled up posing serious threat of untoward incident. The power supply has also worsened ever since the insulated power cables have been laid. We had thought the problem of power cut will be solved once new wires will be laid but nothing happened. Living in healthy and clean atmosphere is the right of every human but sanitation is the biggest problem being faced by us," Paramjit Singh, Ved Parkash Sharma, Rajan, BC Raina. "We are disheartened with Congress and BJP. There were problems of drains and lanes and for that we met to the leaders but they didn't help. In absence of dustbin, the proper disposal of the garbage has become huge problem for us," Rohit Gupta.
Dr GC Gupta said that he has been facing huge difficulty in making PRC of her grand- daughter. "We submitted all requisite documents with the revenue department for making PRC but nothing has happened till date," he said.
"I am a widow and have two daughters. There is no source of income to run my family. I have applied for widow pension long ago but till date I am waiting for it," said Tripta Sharma. "We have been living here for the last twenty years but our names have not been enrolled in voter list," Mandeep Kour. "Ever since the death of my father, I am trying hard to get Widow Pension for my mother. Now we are only two members in our family. My father was the lone bread earner in our family but after his death things have become very difficult for us," said Ritika.
