Local residents, shopkeepers protest against closure of Mubarak Mandi gates

Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 5: Local residents of municipal ward number one and two, along with shopkeepers of the area on Wednesday took out a protest march against the illogical and mindless decision of Mubarak Mandi Jammu Heritage Society (MMJHS) to restrict the free movement of people on the complex by installing two iron gates.
The protesting residents, including housewives, raised slogans against the Director MMJHS and district administration for harassing the people to hide their failures and corrupt practices being committed while executing renovation work on the mega structure. The protestors also blocked the busy Panjthirthi Chowk and staged a dharna outside Raj Bhavan to express their anger and demanded for immediate reopening of the gates. “The decision to close both the gates was taken without consulting or taking local people into confidence. It is sheer dictatorship which will not be tolerated at any cost. Elderly people and ailing people have been facing umpteen hardships due to this arbitrary decision which is aimed at hiding their own failures in bringing a significant change in the crumbling structure,” Vaibhav Sharma, a resident of Pacci Dhaki said.
A woman of the area said, “We have been caged in our own locality without any passage. We have been pushed into the pre-independence era due to closure of gates. In case of any human tragedy in our area, the Director MMJHS and the district administration would be responsible”.
