BARAMULLA, Jan 22: The tall claims of the government falls flat when they say that huge amount is being spend or have spent on various developments, but the ground situation is altogether different as the residents of Alsafa Colony Sopore and adjacent areas are suffering due to want of good roads and drainages.
"Many roads in Sopore town and its adjacent areas were macadamized but our roads were deliberately left out due to the reasons best known to the authorities, said Nazir Mugloo.
He told Early Times that, from past several years we have been continuously visiting Roads and Building (R&B) department, Sopore but deaf ear was given to our requests.
Another resident of this area, Mohammad Ashraf said that, the recent spell of snowfall has added many vows to the residents, adding the area is submerged in water.
"Water lodging has compounded many problems and people including women and children cannot step outside of their residential colonies, and it seems they are swimming into the river, said Ashraf.
He also said that, R&B department has failed to build proper drainages and the whole amount that they are claiming to have spent on drains is useless, otherwise many areas would not have got submerged.
However, residents of Alsafa Colony (A) Kartargarh, Rafaibad further added that from last 30 years they are suffering as there is no proper drainage and Roads in the colony, adding we badly suffers even if there is slight rainfall and whole colony wears a flooded look.
Locals said that successive regimes have failed to provide any help to the poor masses, while as fact of the matter is that still most of the areas are still cut off from rest of the areas due to recent snowfall. Basically, we didn't vote to previous government and that is why we were always deprived for want of developments on one or the other reasons, said locals.
It is pertinent to mention here that there are scores of areas in Sopore and Baramulla towns that are suffering due to want of good roads and drainages.
