The residents of the area told Greater Kashmir that the tall claims of the government fall flat when they say that huge amounts are being spent or have been spent on various developmental works. They said that the ground situation is altogether different as the residents are suffering due to want of good roads and drainage.

Residents said that for the past several years, “We have been continuously visiting Roads and Building (R&B) department Sopore for construction of drains and to repair dilapidated roads but deaf ears were given to our requests.”

They said that the recent spell of rainfall has added many woes to the residents, adding the area was submerged in water.

“Water logging has compounded many problems and people including women and school going children can’t step outside of their residential area,” Mohammad Akbar, one of the local residents said.

Residents further added that from the last many years they are suffering as there is no proper drainage and the roads in the area are too in dilapidated condition, adding we “badly suffer even if there is slight rainfall and the whole residential area wears a flooded look.”
