Vital Sangam-Khudwani road in shambles, locals demand macadamization
Anantnag: The dilapidated condition of Sangam-Khudwani road in south Kashmir is giving a tough time to the commuters.
Locals complained that the road is a very vital link and connects dozens of Anantnag villages with Kulgam district.
“The road is dotted with potholes which speaks volumes about the tall claims of the government of improving road connectivity,” the residents said.
Ghulam Rasool a resident of Subhanpora said that his age is over 70 years now and as far as his memory goes, the road was macadimised only a few times.
“This road connects many villages including Sangam, Tulkhan, Hassanpora, Hussanpora, Subhanpora, Tachloo, Shamsipora and many others villages but has been left unattended due to unknown reasons,” he said.
“We have been informing the higher ups and they have been assuring us that the road will be macadamised but their promises prove hoax all the time,” he alleged.
“The road has become accident prone due to its bad condition but no heed is being given to the suffering of people,” said Suhail Ahmed, another local resident.
“We have contacted the concerned departments several times but the road is yet to be macadmised. The road has been left unattended since the last one decade,” he added.
The residents appealed the administration to come to their rescue by addressing their problem and providing them better road connectivity in the area at the earliest.
