The inhabitants of Shaheedi Mohallah, Ward No. 7 of Municipal Committee in old locality of Kishtwar town are facing brunt of poor sewerage and drainage problem every day as the covered 8 inch Dia drain constructed by the Municipal Committee Kishtwar often gets chocked as a result of which the dirty sewerage water spills on roads emitting lot of foul smell and thus makes the life of the local inhabitants as hell.
"We have only been given a tag of being a part of Municipality--- but our Panchayats in rural areas are far better than the existing Municipality of Kishtwar," said the inhabitants.
The shopkeepers of Mini Bus Stand Kishtwar told the "Early Times" that heaps of garbage remain unattended as a result of which the people living in this areas including shopkeepers are suffering due to health hazards added that Mini Bus Stand Kishtwar act as stop for Mini Busses and several other vehicles with hundreds of passengers transiting daily.
The inhabitants of Umar Mohallah and Baghwan Mohallah accused the NHPC off failure in building up the sewerage treatment and garbage treatment plant with in its limit at Semna colony.
The locals informed that majority of the sewerage water and garbage of NHPC colony spills in these areas thus making the lives of people living in these areas as hell.
