PULWAMA — A road leading from Chakoora to Panzgam in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district is in dilapidated conditions, causing inconvenience to commuters.
The residents of Chakoora, Panzgam, Grawgund and its adjacent areas complained of facing inconvenience while travelling through the road. They said the road has developed potholes which make it difficult to drive smoothly on it.
They told the news agency KNO that the widening of this road for around two kilometres has been kept to a halt and it has become a nightmare for the whole area as people even can’t walk on this part of the road.
Mushtaq Ahmad, a local resident, said that the road is currently full of potholes and is giving tough times to locals as well as passersby. He said that work on the road started a few years ago but has been left midway.
“We have approached the concerned authorities several times, requesting them to initiate repairing of the road, to no avail,” said Mohammad Shaban, a resident of Panzgam village.
Locals said that despite bringing this issue to the notice of concerned authorities several times, nothing has been done so far. They requested higher-ups, especially Deputy Commissioner Pulwama, to look into the matter and take immediate steps in this regard.
An official said that some people are causing hindrances in widening the road and they are working to resolve the matter for carrying out work on the road.
