Urges police to expedite efforts in recovering the body
Banihal, May 20: Expressing concern over delay in restoration works of the damaged infrastructure due to incessant rains and flash floods, National Conference District President Ramban Sajjad Shaheen on Saturday said that insensitive approach of the PDP-BJP dispensation has accumulated peoples’ problems during the past over two and half years.
Shaheen was interacting with mourners at the residence of young Bashir Ahmed, a driver at village Hingni, who died after being washed away due to flash floods caused due to heavy cloud burst. The body is yet to be recovered. Several vehicles got washed away in the unfortunate incident adjacent to the under-construction railway tunnel at Hingni in Banihal Assembly constituency.
The District President urged the local administration, especially the police to expedite efforts in recovering the body.
He sought immediate ex-gratia relief for the bereaved family and compensation to the damages caused due to cloud burst. He hoped that the authorities would do the needful under Natural Disaster Relief Fund earnestly.
Shaheen prayed for peace to the departed soul and expressed solidarity with the bereaved family. He assured all possible help to them.
On the occasion, the locals highlighted various problems and hoped that these will be projected at appropriate level for immediate redressal. (KNS)
