Srinagar: Residents of Ishber Nishat have urged authorities to stop illegal constructions which they said are going on unabated in the greenbelt area. They alleged that LAWDA authorities were acting as mute spectators to these constructions.
“An influential hotelier has almost completed construction of the second storey of his house and LAWDA authorities are doing nothing to stop it,” the locals said.
They also urged vigilance commissioners, appointed by the high court, to take note of the illegal constructions and apprise the highest court of the state about the violations.
“The hon’ble high court is the last hope left to see that these illegal constructions are stopped and the ban on constructions in and around Dal Lake is realised,” they said.
