Incomplete drain irks Sopore locality

Sopore: Residents of Hamza Mohalla locality in Badam Bagh area here have expressed anguish over the failure of Urban Environment Engineering Department (UEED) authorities to complete a drain despite passing of four years.
“UEED started construction of the drain four years back. We were happy with its construction in the area and some people offered their lands for it as well. The authorities only dug deep trenches in the area, but suddenly stopped the work last year,” said the residents.
The residents said these trenches are blocked from all sides and in rainy season water gets filled into them which sometimes enter into their compounds and the soil, dug out from these trenches, produce lot of mud making it difficult for them to walk.
“We request the authorities to take steps to get the construction of the drain completed,” said residents.
