No one tried to mitigate our sufferings: Trikuta Nagar Extn residents tell Munish

Early Times Report
Jammu, July 18: Criticising BJP and Congress leaders for making hollow claims only, residents of Trikuta Nagar Extensional sec 1/P and Sec-2A on Thursday said that their area sans basic amenities and no one seems bothered about their plight.
Carrying forward his mass contact programme, Editor Early Times Munish Gupta, who would be contesting upcoming assembly election as an independent candidate from Gandhi Nagar constituency, met residents of Ambedkar Nagar of Trikuta Nagar Extensional and Ward No 52 today.
Residents of Tube Well lane of Trikuta Nagar Ext 1/P said that the entrance towards their lane is in a dilapidated condition. "The drains are broken and the grills are uprooted which pose threat to common people and the authority concerned seems least bothered about it," said Shashi and Poonam Sharma.
The concerned department had floated tenders for construction of lanes and drains and work had been assigned to a local contractor but the contractor has not initiated the work so far. Last month the local councilor Ajay Gupta visited the lane and assured us that the work would start soon but nothing has been done till date, alleged locals.
Gardhari Lal informed Munish that the drains in their locality are choked as no sanitation employees come regularly to clean these. If someone comes occasionally, they never lift the silt after cleaning it as a result the silt again gets accumulated in the drains and blocks them.
Naresh Kumar Gandotra told Munish the low voltage and fluctuation of electricity have made their lives miserable. All the appliances are not working or have been gone defunct due to fluctuation.
The callousness of PDD can be gauged from this fact that they have erected electric poles just in front of my gate. "Our pleas to remove this pole have fallen flat on deaf ears," Kumar added.
"We were residing here for last five years but our lanes and drains are in shambles while the nallah passing near our homes, is so filthy that it stinks day in and day out . Whenever the rains come, the nallah overflows and water inundates our home and lanes", said Sanjeev Kumar.
"Neither the MLAs nor local councilor have done anything to mitigate our sufferings. They come here only to get votes but after getting elected they forget us," Kumar added.
Attar Singh said that sewerage nallah passing between the Sec 2A and Nanak Nagar Sec 7 is filthy and dirt. "It has never been desilted by the authorities. We have raised protection wall to save our houses from the water of dirty nallah seeping into our homes during rainy season," he added.
