Early Times Report

JAMMU, July 6: Editor Early Times, Munish Gupta, who would be contesting assembly election as independent candidates from Gandhi Nagar Constituency, in continuation to his mass contact programme today reached Adarsh Enclave, an extended part of Jammu's posh colony Trikuta Nagar.
During his visit to the Adarsh Enclave, Trikuta Nagar Extension, Munish Gupta, interacted with people from all walks of life residing in the area and patiently listen to their various problems.
While visiting every nook and corner of the area, Munish was informed by a large number of inhabitants that their locality is deprived of basic civic amenities particularly sanitation which exposes the claims of the authorities and public representatives that development is taking place at a rapid pace in Gandhi Nagar Assembly Constituency.
Several locals told Munish Gupta that most of area has been reeling under lack of civic amenities in particular hygiene, pathetic condition of lanes and drains and non-functional street lights while some of them raised the issue of erratic power supply especially during summers.
One of the residents Snehlata Dubey said that the roads leading to the lanes and by-lanes of the area are in bad shape which needs to be repaired at an earliest while she also drew attention towards cleanliness of the locality.
"We as residents of the area only want better and smoother roads while sanitation is also a major issue to be looked into, however, repeated requests to the authorities concerned had not borne fruits so far," said Snehlata Dubey.
Chander Mohan while speaking to Munish said that a transformer was installed adjacent to his house two months back, however, the PDD with its lackadaisical approach has not been able to connect it to transmission lines so far due to which the problem of irregular power supply and voltage fluctuation goes on.
Sanjay Suri, Aseem Gupta, Anoop Gupta and Rakesh Gupta highlighted the problem of proper street lighting which according to them is either non-functional wherever installed or not provided at all in some lanes of Adarsh Enclave while they also informed about the difficulties being face by them due to clogged drains and sanitation of the locality.
"Street Lights are one of the basic necessities for a locality as they instill a sense of safety and security among the residents during night hours but unfortunately our area still waits for adequate illumination.
Drains are choked while the filth lays scattered onto the streets as the upkeep part is not being followed properly by the authorities concerned," lament Sanjay and Aseem.
"Lanes are in worse condition. There is uncleanliness everywhere in the locality while the street lights are non-functional for the last six months, however, redressal is nowhere in the sight," said Anoop Gupta.
There were others who also pointed towards lack of street lights, proper hygiene and problem of sewage in the area.
Kulbir Khajuria, Naresh Katoch, Sunil Gupta, Dr Ajay Gupta, Veenu Gupta, Shallu Gupta and Neena Gupta raised their respective concerns of various civic issues being confronted by them.
Pointing towards one of the blocked drains, Kulbir Khajuria said that the garbage gets stuck in the sewer due to its improper slope.
"The slopes of the drains are not appropriate as they were not constructed by a government agency rather they were made in a haphazard manner by the private developers of this colony," said Kulbir Khajuria.
While Naresh Katoch said that there is complete chaos in the locality as cleanliness of the lanes is not being done on regular basis due to which they are forced to clean a portion of the locality in front of their house on their own adding that due to lack of sanitation trash gets scattered all over the lanes which eventually leads to foul-smelling.
Sunil Gupta of Lane No 2, Adarsh Enclave, said that collection of garbage should take place on regular basis adding that irregularity on this part is the root cause of unhygienic conditions in the locality.
Dr Ajay Gupta, a prominent resident of the area, while lashing on the apathetic attitude of the local Councilor, said that the local body representative is least concerned with the problems of Adarsh Enclave.
"The Councilor doesn't bother to pick our phone call despite repeated attempts. We were facing the problem of a blocked drain in front of my house but there was nobody to listen to our grievance. Councilor was unavailable for reasons best known to him.
Ultimately, I got the drain cleared somehow after twenty days by making efforts on my own," said Dr Ajay Gupta.
Veenu Gupta, Shallu Gupta and Neena Gupta also highlighted the problems of choked drains and sanitation.
"Choked drains are the main and foremost problems for the inhabitants," said Shallu and Neena while Veenu made it a point to also raise the unclean lanes and non-provision of street lights.
Another resident Nitesh Sharma informed Munish that he is not able to get the Voter I-Card even after applying for the same.
"My entire family is in possession of Voter I-Cards but I am the only one who is yet to get it till now despite formally applied for the document a long time ago. There is hardly any positive response so far from the concerned quarters in this regard," said Nitesh.
