Ganderbal, 31 July: The residents of remote village Palpora in Central Kashmir’s District Ganderbal have been demanding proper road connectivity but the authorities have been miserly dealing with the demand.
The residents of Palpora, Tangdaji and its adjoining areas complained that R&B department has failed to develop the half Km road which is the lone link of these villages with Tehsil Kangan.
Work on PMG To Palpora road was taken up under NREGA last year unfortunately Block Development left the work midaway said Ghulam Nabi a resident of Palpora.
“We are facing so many difficulties while going to school, market place or hospital, due to poor road connectivity” said Amir Ahmad a student.
An elderly woman Sakeen Begum said that they are forced to take dead bodies, patients on shoulder due to poor road connectivity.
The villagers alleged that despite their several requests to the concerned authorities, no effort has been made to provide connectivity to these villages.
Locals appealed Governor NN Vohra and Deputy Commissioner Ganderbal Dr Piyush Singla to intervene into the matter so that the suffering of people could be mitigated.
