Shakoor Ahmad, a local resident said that there is no proper road connectivity for around eight kilometres from main Karmulla and people of the area are forced to go by foot to address any necessary work.

He said that condition of road is very bad as neither it has been macadamised nor being repaired by the concerned authorities.

During emergencies, we have to take patients on our back or on a cart to take them to a health care facility. he added.

Ilyas Ahmad, another local resident said that locals have to go for around six kilometres to get the ration and they have to use horses to take ration and other items towards their home.

He said that area is without any proper water supply facility and they have to visit a spring that is very far from the area to get the water for drinking.

Shakeel Ahmad, another local said that area is without any proper mobile network connectivity and in absence of proper mobile connectivity, students have become the worst sufferers.

Locals said that they have been betrayed by every politician so far as they alleged that politicians during the past two decades visited the area during elections and promised them roads and other facilities.

The locals said that since the past several years now the issues were raised at various forums and offices of the concerned authorities, but as of now the issues remain unresolved.

The locals have now pinned their hopes of the LG Manoj Sinha and Deputy Commissioner Pulwama and requested them to help solve the issues the residents are facing.
