Jammu, July 6: Expressing dismay over non-performance of former Congress and BJP MLAs, residents of Sanjay Nagar of Sec 4 on Saturday told Munish Gupta that dilapidated roads, clogged drains and irregular water supply have made their lives miserable.
Editor Early Times, Munish Gupta, carried forward his mass contact programme in Sanjay Nagar's Sec 4, where he met people from all walks of life and informed them about his vision and his decision to contest the upcoming Assembly election as an independent candidate from Gandhi Nagar constituency.
"I want to serve my people. I assure you that if you vote for me I will try my best to resolve the issues which confront you in your daily lives, particularly the civic facilities," he said.
Locals informed Munish that the local corporator who has represented their ward for the two successive terms couldn't do much for them. "The roads are in dilapidated condition, drains are clogged. power supply is erratic and even potable water is not reaching us," they added.
Suridner Kour of Punjabi Mohalla of Sanjay Nagar informed that all the streetlights in their lane are defunct, roads are not blacktopped and drains are clogged. "Our repeated requests have fallen flat on the deaf ears of a local corporator," she said, adding that "water logging and manholes filled with sewerage has made them sick."
Ashwani Choudhary, Swarana Devi, Mitto Devi and Shuktala Devi and others residing in house no from 41 to 53 informed Munish Gupta that "since last many months we are not getting water supply regularly. The PHE department laid supply pipes years back.
These have been damaged. Last year we met AEE, Executive Engineer of PHE Department and he sanctioned new supply pipes for our locality but till date these pipes have not reached us. We have to fetch water from the nearby tube well and from our neighbours."
Sandeep Singh said that "Former MLAs had promised us that all the lanes and drains would be constructed on pattern of Gandhi Nagar area and these drains would be covered with steel grilling. After getting elected these MLAs turned their backs towards us and never paid any attention towards our miseries."
"Dumping of garbage in open space is also a menace in these areas. Locals dump all the garbage and residue of kitchen in the vacant plots. This is happening due to non availability of any dustbin in our locality.
However, in other areas, the municipal vehicles come regularly to collect garbage but only our lanes have been left out", said Paramjit Kour.
