BARAMULLA, Mar 8: Despite having extensive connectivity of roads, Baramulla’s Kandi belt and its upper areas are without a bus service since 2019. The Kandi belt of Baramulla district is clustered by almost 100 villages from Baramulla to Gulmarag.

The people of the area especially the student community have expressed their anguish over the issue. Students from various villages are facing difficulties to continue their studies and reach their colleges as no proper bus facility is provided by the administration.

“Almost 500 students from our area go to college everyday but still no bus service is provided to us by the administration and the unfortunate part is that many political leaders belong to this area,” Shakir Ahmad, a college student from Chandoosa Village told Kashmir Despatch.

The students have also expressed their concern regarding their expensive travel to the college as only Sumo and Tavera vehicles ply on these routes.

“It costs us almost Rs 100-120 per day to reach  college and vice-versa which is unaffordable for  a student, instead if a bus service is provided, it will be economical. At least one bus should be available in the morning and in the afternoon which is accommodate students in good number at cheaper rate,” said another student from Sultanpora, Kandi.

Apart from the students, other residents of the area have also shown their concern to the fact and have requested the administration to intervene in this matter.
