Early Times Report
Jammu, July 9: Criticising BJP and Congress for making hollow promises of providing all necessary basic amenities in the locality, the residents of Digiana Pulli alleged that they have been facing number of problems ranging from water shortage to sanitation and erratic power supply.
The residents told their grievances to Munish Gupta, Editor Early Times during his mass contact programme, who would be contesting upcoming assembly elections from Gandhi Nagar constituency.
Voters Card
Sureshta Devi, the resident of Digiana expressed her anguish against the government for not enrolling her name in voters' list. "I have been living here for the last 20 years but my name has not been included in voters' list. During last Last Lok Sabha elections, I could not utilize my right to cast vote due to non enrolment in voters' list," said Sureshta. Suman Devi said that her children have not been enrolled in voters' list. "My sons Sidhant Kumar, Sumeet Kumar had applied for voters' card online nearly two months ago but till date their names have not been included in voters list.
Water shortage
Digiana locality has been facing water shortage, the PHE does not supply water water on regular basis. At some places the supply remains off for days. "We are very angry over the irregular water supply by PHE department. If there is no light then water supply is not released on that particular day. These days when summer is at peak, the power curtailment has been increased which directly affect the water supply," said Ram Singh, Yash Pal, Vidya Devi. "It has been three months that we have not received water supply," Devo Devi. "There is grave issue of water supply in our area, we lodged complaint to the department but nothing has been done to solve it," said Rattan Lal. "There was no water supply in the morning and I waited for hours but could not take bath. We are very unhappy with the poor water supply by the PHE," said Charan Das.
The broken lanes have never been repaired. Huge potholes have developed in these lanes and during night there is every possibility of getting stumbled as there is no street light.
"The street lights in the lanes are of very great importance but most of the stretch is without street light and wherever it has been installed is not functioning. The lanes and drains are dilapidated and drains get blocked due to which dirty water overflows," said Naveen Kumar, Harbhajan Singh, Joginder, Preet Kour, Rakesh, Sandesh, Namo Devi.
"Light curtailment has made our life miserable in these high summer days. Being a student my study is suffering a lot. Unscheduled power cuts make things difficult for us. Minimum power cuts should be applied, if needed at least scheduled power cuts should be imposed," said Amit.
PRC/Old Age Pension
Sat Pal expressed his disappointment over not getting PRC. "We are refugees of 1947 but till date we have been deprived of PRC due to which our children are facing huge difficulties in getting admission in government institutions and jobs. We despite being poor have been issued APL ration cards while some people who have good financial conditions have been possessing BPL ration cards," said Sat Pal.
Bachno, an elderly woman of the area said that she has not received Old Age Pension benefit by the government. "The house in which I am living has developed cracked and we are very poor can afford it repair, we sought financial help from local BJP, Congress leaders but they didn't' help, she said.
