PULWAMA — The residents of several localities of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Saturday accused the district administration of subjecting them to inconvenience due to the dilapidated condition of several internal roads in the district.

Locals accused officials of not paying any kind of attention to this vital road which connects dozens of villages and can make road accessible for smooth traffic in the district.

We have approached the concerned departments by representations various times, but they are only passing the buck and are playing dilly-dallying tactics,” the aggrieved residents said.

According to the delegation, they praise administration for their commendable steps to deal with the situation of traffic jam in the district, mainly in Pulwama town. However, these facilities will only be successful if the district administration will widen road from Prichoo to Washbugh.

“The administration seems to have forgotten these roads including major link roads which connect several areas with district headquarters. No work has been taken up for the last so many years,” said local residents of Pulwama district.

They said that the bad conditions of roads not only give the commuters a tough time but it also consumes a lot of their time in reaching from one place to another.

The residents of these areas now appeal to the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir and Deputy Commissioner Pulwama to personally look into the matter in order to have redressal of their grievances.
