Early Times Report

Jammu, July 8: Expressing their anguish against BJP, Congress leaders for their failure to provide basic amenities, the residents of Nanak Nagar Sec-8 said that previous governments have failed to mitigate problems of dilapidated roads, blocked drains, erratic power and water supply in the area.
The residents informed the Munish Gupta, Editor Early Times, who is on his mass contact programme for upcoming assembly elections, who would be contesting as an independent candidate from Gandhi Nagar assembly constituency. "The tiles laid on lanes have sunk at some places due to sub standard material used. We asked the concerned leaders for their repair but they paid no heed to our request. The sanitation of lanes and drains is not taken care of by the concerned authority," said Bunty, Khem Raj Raina.
Other than civic issues, the residents also informed the Munish Gupta about a very serious problem of drugs menace which is increasing in the area. "The drug peddlers can be seen moving in the area and sell drug among the youth, which has become nuisance. Few days ago we caught a peddler who was selling drugs and handed over him to police but still this menace is going on in the area which indicates that police has not been taking this issue seriously. Increasing drug menace has been destroying our youth as these drug peddlers make youth their target. Drug abuse among new generation in giving birth to new problem for families," said Bhavesh Sharma, KS Bhau.
"There is huge power fluctuation in the area and the electric appliances don't work properly. We have to pass restless night with regular fluctuation. Apart from this, drains and lanes are broken and need their immediate repair. Low voltage has become problems for us due to which, PHE water supply also remains off. Unscheduled power cuts has derailed our daily routine," said Prabha Sharma, Rajani Kumari, Antima.
Criticising the substandard work done on road by the department, Jagan Nath said that the road was blacked topped three months ago, which has broken now. Similarly, Jeet Ram Choudhary said that the road, in his area the road was macadamised three years ago, which is now in total dilapidated condition, which has exposed the department for carrying out substandard work. "The street lights have not been working since long which plunges the street into dark during night hour," said Neelam Verma.
"The PHE water supply is very poor in the area, which comes once in day and some time remain off for two-three days together. The sanitation of lanes and drains is not maintained regularly. It has been months the drains have not been cleaned due to which drains are blocked. There is big nallah in the area which uncovered and emanate foul smell," said Suman, Om Parkash Sharma, Daljeet Kour, Ram Parkash.
