Early Times Report
Jammu, Aug 13: Continuing his mass contact programme ahead of next assembly polls, Editor Early Times, Munish Gupta, who would be contesting the elections as an independent candidate from Gandhi Nagar constituency, riding a bicycle from his residence in Gandhi Nagar, today reached Chatha Mill locality and its adjoining areas.
During his visit, Munish Gupta interacted with a large number of residents of the area who informed him of their problems and hardships in detail while they also conveyed their best wishes to Gupta and supported his decision to contest the forthcoming assembly election.
While narrating their tales of woes, the residents informed Munish that their area is plagued with potholed roads due to which the commuters face a lot of problems particularly during rainy season since the problem get aggravated as even with small amount of rainfall, most of the roads vanish due to water accumulation in potholes.
"Many accidents and reports of vehicles getting stopped due to the water logged roads surface during monsoon. It is extremely important to be cautious while driving through such water logged roads as it causes water to enter the vehicle through the exhaust pipe. While avoiding the flooded roads is the best solution to the problem, it is, however, is not the answer to every situation. The problem should be fixed at the earliest," said the aggrieved residents.
Residents further said that they brought up the matter before the authorities concerned as well as the political leaders, who represented the constituency from time to time, however, no concerted efforts were made for the restoration of thoroughfares.
"The people of the area are literally fed up of having bumpy rides to and from their residences. The roads are virtual death trap especially for two-wheeler riders who face an extremely tough time to maintain balance on uneven surface," said inhabitants of the area.
While few other residents highlighted the problems of irregular water as well as electric supply and castigated the ex-MLAs belonging to Congress and BJP for their lack of concern in addressing such vital issues adding that the former legislators failed in their moral duty to provide basic necessities of life like water and electricity without any interruption despite making assurances.
