Former Cong, BJP MLAs made big promises but failed to deliver: Nanak Nagar residents tell Munish
Mass contact programme on

Early Times Report
Jammu, July 23: Accusing previous regimes of Congress and BJP for ignoring their issues, the residents of Nanak Nagar's sector 2, 3 and 5 said that they have been continuously facing several civic issues for the past many years.
Carrying forward his mass contact programme, Munish Gupta, Editor Early Times, who would be contesting forthcoming assembly elections as an independent candidate from Gandhi Nagar constituency on Tuesday met the residents and heard their problems. He also put forth his vision before them for contesting elections. The people welcomed his move and assured him of their full support.
Maan Singh residing in Lane no 3 of Sector 2 informed Munish that he has been living in one of the so-called posh areas of Jammu, which is without basic amenities . "The drains are choked roads have turned dilapidated and other issues have made our lives miserable. Rain water enters into our homes whenever the rainy season arrives. Our repeated pleas to get the roads and lanes repaired fell flat on the deaf ears of formers MLAs and other leaders. They did nothing for us," Singh added.
"Our streetlights are not functioning, no safaikaramchari comes here. If someone comes occasionally, he dumps the garbage in the entrance of our lanes", said Gurashish Singh and added that the civic authority installed only bins to dump garbage near the Khalsa Chowk. "Everyone cannot reach there. The concerned authority should at least install one dust bin in every lane," he added.
The callousness of PHE can be judged from this fact that few months back, they laid down water supply pipes and dug the lanes but till date these lanes have not been repaired. "At some joints new water pipes are getting leaked", said Mohinder Singh.
Kuldeep Singh informed Munish that "since last two decades, our lane has not been repaired, nor blacktopped due to selective approach of the former MLAs."
Criticizing the role of former MLAs, he said that "prior to elections they make tall promises regarding civic amenities but after getting elected, they never visited our lane. We repeatedly requested our former representatives to provide us with basic amenities but they didn't bother," said Kuldeep Singh.
Vimala Devi, a widow whose husband expired nearly one decade ago is still not getting pension. She informed Munish that "in every election, aspiring MLAs promise me that I will soon get pension but after getting elected, they forget my miseries."
"From last 10 years, I have been making rounds of rounds of social welfare office to get registered under centrally sponsored scheme but my pleas have not been heard till date,"she added.
