SRINAGAR — The residents of Chatpora area of Pulwama district on Thursday protested against the Roads and Buildings Department for failing to repair the vital Pulwama-Rajpora road.

Meanwhile, residents of Chenigund also staged protests against the Jal Shakti Department for failing to provide drinking water to the area for the last three years.

Protestors at Chatpora said that all roads have been repaired or macadamised in the area but the vital Pulwama-Rajpora stretch has been left out due to unknown reasons.

The protesters said that the issue was brought in the notice of higher ups umpteen times but to no avail as repeated assurances of officials have proved hoax on the ground.

They requested the concerned department to look into the matter as the road is in a dilapidated condition and it must be macadamised at an earliest.

Meanwhile, protestors, mainly women from Chenigund, said that their taps have turned dry three years ago and since then they are suffering a lot.

“In absence of potable water, we are forced to drink contaminated water which is proving very harmful,” they said. “Since three years, we have knocked on the doors of every official but to no avail.”

“We request higher ups to look into the matter and make immediate efforts to restore water supply in the area which has been defunct for a long time now,” the protesters said.
