Blacktop roads, augment water supply, electricity: Shoaib Lone
SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) leader and former legislator Shoaib Lone on Thursday expressed deep concern over the plight of inhabitants of Sangrama constituency who are suffering for want of basic amenities.
In a statement issued here, Lone said the road connecting Singhpora-Nowpora road that connects a vast area of Kandi belt with Baramulla town is in dilapidated condition and has not been macadamized for the convenience of people for unknown reasons. Similarly,he said, that the inner links, lanes and bylanes in Sirpura Murin, Nowpora, Srakwara, Wagoora, Mirangund are full of potholes and the commuters are suffering immensely due to the official apathy towards these areas.
Stressing on augmentation of drinking water and electricity supply in entire Sangrama constituency, the JKAP leader urged the district administration to pay heed towards the plight of the inhabitants of areas like Mirangund, Nowpora, Srakwara Wagoora and dozens of adjoining villages which have been left high and dry in absence of a dependable potable water and electricity supply.
“Most of the people, especially women folk in these areas are supposed to travel long distances to fetch drinking water as the taps run dry in these areas. The PHE department seems in deep slumber and is least bothered to mitigate the sufferings of people in these areas,” he added.
The JJKAP leader said that not only the electricity plays hide and seek in these villages but the lack of PDD infrastructure like conductor wires, poles and other essential items have made the life of people hellish. “Because of the poor electricity supply, the student community in these areas is the worst hit,” he remarked.
Lone also emphasized on the need for desilting of irrigation canal Khul at Delina and Seer so that the farmers and orchardists of the Sangrama constituency are provided with some dependable irrigation facility for smooth farming activities.
He urged the government to establish a degree college at Wagoora so that thousands of students who are compelled to travel long distances in pursuit of their higher education are provided with quality education at their doorsteps. “Similarly, the government must set up a higher secondary school at Seer in order to address a long pending demand of the locals,” he pleaded.
