Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 18: Editor Early Times, Munish Gupta, who would be contesting the forthcoming assembly elections from Gandhi Nagar constituency, on Wednesday, expressed dismay over the pathetic plight of Bhour camp residents who are facing several civic issues.
Munish said that Bhour Camp, which comprises of over 1500 households, has been grappling with several issues, which has made the life of its residents miserable. Munish said that the Bhour Camp, which falls under Jammu Municipal Corporation Ward No. 73 of Gandhi Nagar Constituency, despite being so near to the city has been left unattended. “Authorities need to wake up from deep slumber and help the residents, whose pleas seem to be falling on the deaf ears,” Munish said. He urged the Jammu and Kashmir administration to ensure that people get the facilities and they are not made to suffer in absence of basic amenities. While talking to Early Times, the residents of Bhour Camp said, “The drains in our area mostly remain clogged due to the lackadaisical attitude of the Municipality. The drains overflow at many points, which lead to dirty water seeping into the residential houses. The filthy odour emanating from these drains has made our lives miserable,” said Sanchet Sharman and Rohit Khajuria, the local residents.
Other residents, including Inder Pal Sharma, Vicky Sharma pointed out the issue of Power Distribution Transformer, which they said, has been lying open and has not been covered. “This transformer poses threat to the lives of the people. It is installed close to the ground and the children, who play nearby it, are under threat. Any accident can take place due to the negligence of the concerned department. We have brought this issue into the notice of the concerned officials on many occasions, but they seem least concerned. They have not made any attempt to address this issue till date,” they alleged. They said that the concerned corporator, has never visited the area ever since he was elected. “He seems least bothered about the problems being faced by the residents of this area, where hundreds of denizens are facing severe hardships. We visited his house many times, but he didn’t pay any heed,” said Paramjeet Singh. Singh said garbage dumps remaining unattended in the area have become breeding ground for insects. “No garbage bins have been installed in this vastly populated area, which generates massive garbage on daily basis,” he said.
Many other residents vociferously raised the issue of drug menace in the area, which they said, has spread its tentacles among the youth. “Some outsiders sell drugs to the youth. We have informed the concerned police station to arrest the drug peddlers,” they said.
