SRINAGAR, June 9: Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) leader Dr Mir Samiullah on Monday toured many areas of Pulwama assembly segment and urged the government to pay attention towards its inhabitants who are suffering immensely for want of basic amenities.
In a statement issued here, Dr Samiullah demanded immediate macadamisation and repair of Padgampora-Naina, Naina-Chakoora and Beighpora-Pulwama roads. “Most of the roads in Pulwama are in extremely bad condition which has made the life of commuters and general public miserable,” he observed.
Dr Samiullah remarked that it is very uncomfortable for the residents of Pulwama assembly segment to transport patients’ particularly pregnant ladies on such dilapidated roads. He also appealed to the district administration to immediately start work on halted projects in Pulwama particularly various irrigation plants as agricultural activity is completely dependent on it.
Similarly, the JKAP leader said the residents of many villages falling in Pulwama assembly segment are still craving for electricity which remains curtailed for hours together in a day. “People in many areas like Padgampora and Beighpora do not have access to safe drinking water and in some areas of this assembly segment people are compelled to fetch water from the nearby nallahs,” he added.
