The residents of Gujjar Nagar and its adjoining areas falling in Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC) have complained of snail’s pace of developmental activities and poor condition of lanes and drains in residential colonies of the old city.
Explaining his inability to do anything as per the demands of the people, Corporator Ward No 6, Mohiuddin Choudhary alleged that he had not received funds that were being projected by the corporation.
“The funds which could have been utilised for the developmental works in the wards I represent have not been released so far,” he said.
“The installation of signboards cannot be termed development. In the old city, will find multiple electric wires on a single electric pole that often leads to mishaps and deaths,” he said. “Rs 25 lakh had to be released for development but it has not been released.”
