Tulihalan village in Shopian demands proper road connectivity
Shopian: Tulihalan village situated just about four kilometres from district headquarter Shopian is lacking proper road connectivity, locals have alleged.
The residents of Tulihalan village said that a 2 kilometre road from Devpora Shopian connecting this village was constructed some 10 years back but it was never repaired since then.
“After the road was constructed, it was never repaired or macadamised due to which the road has turned into a stretch of potholes and locals are facing tremendous hardships while commuting,” the villagers alleged.
They said that in winters they are forced to carry patients, pregnant ladies and children to hospitals on cots.
Locals said that during snow, the area remains cut off from rest of the world but there is none who cares about people of this area.
They said this village consists of over one hundred households but has been neglected by the past governments.
“Last year a pregnant woman was carried on a cot for about two kilometres due to the accumulation of snow on the road as vehicles could not ply,” the villagers alleged.
“We have brought this issue into the notice of concerned officials several times but till date the requests were not taken seriously,” they said.
They requested higher ups to look into matter at an earliest and repair the road before the onset of winter so that locals won’t face problems anymore.
