NC leader criticises govt over lack of civic amenities in Srinagar

Srinagar: The National Conference leader Ali Muhammad Sagar on Sunday criticised the government over the lack of civic amenities in Srinagar city and said the appalling condition of city roads debunks the tall claims of governor’s administration.
According to the statement issued here, Sagar stated this while touring many localities of Khanyar constituency. He said that the incumbent governor administration has miserably failed to rise up to the development demands of the city of Srinagar.
“The government had claimed that RS 8000 crores have been air marked for the development of Srinagar city. We had sent 8 projects from this segment for the government’s approval but so far there has been no head way in that direction. Similarly my colleagues had also sought approval for various projects in their respective constituencies. However, our repeated pleas fell on deaf ears. We didn’t see the incumbent governor administration invest in the vital projects of Srinagar,” he said.
Sagar added: The urban life of Srinagar city is beseeching for basic amenities. The city roads, inner routes and alleys are dotted with potholes. There has been no advance towards upgrading the existing infrastructure. The street lights are non-operational on various arterials. The work on various community halls and vital projects has been held up as well.
“People are hankering for sugar and other items. The administration has failed to maintain price stability in the Srinagar city. The festivities of Ramaaan have been dampened by the rampant scarcity of mutton and other edibles. The sky rocketing prices of essential commodities is also adding to the mounting woes of people,” he said, adding the people have been left to fend for themselves.
The NC leader further said that there is no accountability on ground. “The laid back attitude of the incumbent administration has aggravated the people who don’t know where to turn to for help. If this is the condition in the capital city of Srinagar, one can better gauge what the people living in other areas must be going through,” he added
