Seek Clearance of roads, restoration of electricity and water in far-flung, rural areas
Srinagar, Jan 05: The Jammu and National Conference on Tuesday impressed upon the Divisional administration to expedite its response to the problems which have surfaced in wake of heavy snowfall across Kashmir.
In a joint statement to ANH, Party’s district presidents and constituency incharges impressed upon the administration to clear all the major arterials and interdistrict roads on priority basis. They also impressed upon the divisional administration to take stock of the availability of necessary edibles including LPG, Kerosene oil, and other household items in the far-flung areas and upper reaches of Kashmir division.
The functionaries also impressed upon the concerned departments to restore water and electricity supply across Kashmir on immediate basis. “Redressal of the problems like power-outages, water shortage, road clearance, dewatering and ensuring availability of food items should be high on the addenda of divisional administration. We hope that the administration will speed up its response effectively to ensure that people don’t have to undergo any predicaments.
In addition to that it is expected from the administration to ensure accountability in primary, secondary and tertiary health care centers across Kashmir,” they said adding that shortage of drinking water, power outages, and non availability of essentials like LPG, vegetables, and other food items was severely being felt in far-flung areas. Compounding the unforeseen problems is the absence of ground staffers of all concerned departments on ground; they added urging the administration to bump up its efforts in order to ensure that people are not at the receiving end.
