Early Times Report
Jammu, July 10: Flaying BJP and Congress leaders for ignoring Nai Basti area where dilapidated drains, lanes have been irking the residents which were never repaired despite assurances given by the local leaders.
Munish Gupta, Editor Early Times during his mass contact programme, who would be contesting upcoming assembly elections as an independent candidate from Gandhi Nagar constituency met number of people in Nai Basti and informed them about his vision.

Drains/ Drains/ Cleanliness
"The drains in our lanes are blocked for 2-3 months and nobody from authority concern comes to clean them due to which dirty water overflows and enter in our houses. Sometime we pay from our own pocket for the cleaning of drains and lanes," said Karan resident of Nai Basti near Sabaji Mandi, Neelam Bhasin, Neetu Gupta.
The drain in front of my house has not been given slope due to which water remains stagnant and enters into house. We talked to concerned authority but our request remained unaddressed, said Surinder Gupta. "One side of wall of my house is sinking due to dilapidated drains as water continue to seeps into the base of my house. The cracks have developed in the wall due to this problem and there is urgent need of repair of drains so that my house may not suffer more damage" said Varinder Kumar H.No. 599.
"It has been five years, the lanes and drains have not been repaired. Even the cleanliness of the drains and lanes is not taken care of by the authority. Government charge from us for cleanliness but in returns we get nothing. It has been more than week the cleaning of lane has not been done and we ourselves do it. The drains have not been covered while at some places the grills laid on them have been removed,' said Satinder Singh, Susheel Kumar, Sunita Gupta, Karishna Devi, Prab Dyal.

Power curtailment
"Power curtailments have made our life hell, unscheduled power cuts remain continue all the night, the electric wires are worn out and they got broken due to load. We call the lineman but he never respond. We also contacted the concerned department for replacing the worn out wire but till date no action has been taken," said Gourav.
Voter Cards
"I have not been able to enrol my name in voter list. I talked to many people for this but didn't get help," said Amaan, who has just turned 18 this year.

No source of income
Baby Kumari, whose husband died nearly seven years ago, has been living in very difficult times. Narrating her ordeal, she said "After death of my husband (Bhagwan Das), there is no source of income as he was the lone bread earner of the family. We had five fruit kiosks in the Gole Market, which were run by my husband which were demolished by the government and left us jobless. I have three children which are not grown up but ever since the death of my husband the financial condition of my family has deteriorated," she said further adding that she also knocked the door of court but no relief has been received. "I am still running from pillar to post to get relief but nobody has been helping us. At least we should be given one kiosk so that we could run our family," she said.

No Handicapped Certificate
Some handicapped people have been facing difficulties to get their medical report of their disability. "My handicapped certificate has been expired recently and when I went to get it extended from the concerned department they asked me that it will be renewed and for that medical report it is necessary but in health department I am facing difficult to get medial report," Subhash Gupta, of Nai Basti. Similarly, a woman , Shakuntal Devi, who is also handicapped from one leg due to polio, has been trying to get handicapped pension, and has been paying regular visit to hospital for medical report.

No toilet
"There are four members in the family which are living in one room. We have no toilet facility. I have to go out for earning livelihood. Even some time we get no ration from the dealers. I requested the local leader for financial help but nobody helps me" said Rattano.

Old Age Pension
Expressing her anger against the Government, an elderly woman Sheela Devi said that it has been three months since she has not got Old Age Pension.
