Cong, BJP leaders hoodwinked us on name of development: Model Town residents tell Munish

Early Times Report
Jammu, July 12: Although, both BJP and Congress patting its back over the development of Jammu but its own leaders either MLA or Councillors who represented the Gandhi Nagar Constituency have did nothing to meet basic civic amenities.
Editor Early Times, Munish Gupta who would be contesting upcoming election from the Gandhi Nagar constituency as independent candidate, on Friday met the residents of Model Town's Sector 2, 3 and 7 and listened their woes that plagued the whole locality and assured them that if he wins the elections he would ensure that problems being confronted in their day to day lives are resolved.
Residents criticised the former Congress and BJP MLAs for making "hollow promises" to provide civic amenities in the locality but after getting elected they forget what they promised before election of Councillors and MLA.
Lanes and Drains in dilapidated Condition
All the lanes and by lanes were constructed years back, now have been turned dilapidated. Drains are not maintained properly, the sewerage water is flowing into lanes which making hindrance to walking. Most of the drains were clogged and no sanitation employees comes to unblock them, despite repeatedly pleas to sanitation authority either telephonically or online, said Chander Prabha and added that we settled in Model Town in Se 6 nearly, 2011. Just after we shifted there, our lanes were blacktopped and drains were constructed but thereafter, everyone makes us hallow promises. "Now the lanes are uprooted and drains are not covered with steel grills, manholes on the lanes are posing threat to walker but the authority is in deep slumber", said Veena Gupta.
The main road which connect from Gangyal to Model Town was started blacktopping month back but its inauguration and getting credit of the blacktopping had become bone of contention between local Corporator and former MLA Kavinder Gupta, resulting the department abandoned the blacktopping in the middle and its whole credit goes to so called Jammu's developmental players.
Streetlight & Sanitation
Streetlights and lack of sanitation in our locality is common problems that plaguing the whole society in large, said Ashanand Bhagat and added that the authority concerned not even installed a single dustbin in our locality. Resident are forced to dump garbage in the vacant plots and even the employees came here for cleanliness, have also dumped all the garbage in the plot, resulting the smell emanating giving sleepless night
"Most of the streetlights were installed in Model Town, have gone kaput and didn't functioning. Some of them have fused tube while some are disconnect from the electrical poles. But the corporation is in no position to replace them", said Satya Devi.
Low Voltage
Low voltage has made lives of locality residents miserable. "Our appliances have gone kaput due to low voltage. Refrigerators, ACs, fans and motors don't function properly due to frequent power curtailment", said Ajeet Singh and added that however, the PDD claims that 24X7 hours electricity would be ensured to Jammuities but actually it's merely a promise that would never execute in our life span.
