Shopian: Residents of Sedow village in south Kashmir’s Shopian district have complained of lack of facilities in the village.
Locals claim that despite living just eight kilometres away from district headquarters they have been left alone by the administration as no basic facilities are being provided to the residents.
They said that even in 21st century they are without basic amenities as since last 50 years politicians visited the village for votes and no developmental work is being done on ground.
Muzzafar Ahmad, a local resident said that they are living a miserable life as no one comes to their rescue.
“Our village has been neglected on the developmental front as it lacks proper road connectivity and potable drinking water supply,” he said.
“We are treated like animals as no attention is being provided towards our village. Besides lack of roads no proper electricity or water facilities are provided to the residents,” Bilal Ahmad Bhat, another local resident said.
“Local women have to walk for around 2 kilometres to fetch water for drinking purposes and electricity remains available for just few hours in summers and not even for one hour during the winters,” he said.
Locals said that they have brought these issues to the notice of concerned authorities several times but to no avail.
They once again requested higher ups to look into the matter so that they can heave a sigh of relief.
