"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.
