Former MLAs deprived us of real development: Bandhu Rakh residents tell Munish

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Aug 14: Carrying forward his mass contact programme on a bicycle, the Editor Early Times, Munish Gupta, who would be contesting the upcoming Assembly polls as an independent candidate from Gandhi Nagar Constituency, today visited Bandhu Rakh Kunjwani and its adjoining localities where people from all walks of life while interacting with him expressed their displeasure over the neglect they are facing at the hands of the administration and successive legislators.
The aggrieved residents of the area told Munish Gupta that dilapidated lanes, clogged drains, water logging and polluted water supply, lack of public transport facility, voltage fluctuation as well as load shedding, erratic power and water supply have made their lives miserable adding that they are unable to find a suitable solution to the problems being faced by them as there is nobody who pays heed to their pleas.
Residents told Munish that the locality is in dire need of a proper sewage system as the drains get choked every now and then due to the excessive waste material being thrown in them due to which the inhabitants are confronting the problem of water logging.
Despite being part of Gandhi Nagar Constituency, the former MLAs- Raman Bhalla and Kavinder Gupta who represented the assembly segment for the last three terms never visited them during their tenure to heard or readdress the problems being faced by them.
"The sewage system is in complete shambles in our locality. The water gets logged routinely at several points which have become a nightmare for the residents," said the residents adding that they are waiting with hope for the corrective measures but no action has been taken so far.
Several inhabitants of the area were critical of the fact that the lanes of the locality were never refurbished for the last so many years now due to which most of the streets are in a dilapidated condition.
"Neither the Congress nor the BJP's MLAs come forward to initiate the process of blacktopping the lanes and by-lanes," said residents of the area.
Few others told Munish that the population of their locality has increased many folds over the years but the PDD department did not upgrade the existing transformers which are not sufficient to maintain the enhanced load though we repeatedly made pleas to PDD and even former MLAs in this regard but yielded no results.
