According to the protestors that blocked the road leading to the main town Sopore from Tarzoo village told Kashmir Reader that due to pathetic condition of the roads in our area, students, employees, patients face immense hardships to reach to their respective destinations on proper time.
“We approached R&B department & SDM office many times with a hope that issue will be addressed but till date nothing on ground happened, just the hollow assurances by officials”, another protestor, Riyaz Malik lamented.
“It is the only link road in area which was dropped in the macadimization plan of previous year leaving it in a dilapidated condition”, group of protestors said.
