“Our locality is connected with main road passing through Ladhoo by a dusty path stretching on 2 kilometers ,” Poswal said, adding that the pathway becomes very difficult for commuters to tread in winters.
“Due to rain and snow, the pathway gathers a lot of mud and becomes full of puddles,” he told Kashmir Reader.
The residents told Kashmir Reader that they have to ferrying patients on wooden crutches.
They added that a few days ago one of the lady died on way to hospital as they were unable to shift her to hospital on time.
“It took us around one hour to cover the muddy path to reach the main road,” the residents said.
They said that they appealed authorities a number of times but no one bothered to redress their grievance.
Another resident told Kashmir Reader that they have no election cards, ration cards and their names were missing from voter list. They demanded that they be enrolled in the voter list.
Block development councilor Pampore, Mir Altaf Ahmad told Kashmir Reader that people of Gosainard, Fressdori and Kharchakri have been demanding for basic amenities for past 30 years but they were exploited by successive governments and used for vote bank politics.
“We have prepared a project for the pathway. Rupees 3 lakh have been sanctioned for macadamising the stretch to Gosainard, under MGNREGA” he said.
He added by end of 2020 all link roads and pathways in these Gujjar localities will be macdamised.
He also said that they have instructed village level workers of concerned area to register them in the voter list so that they can exercise their franchise in the coming elections for vacant seats of panchs and Sarpanchs. “By end of February their vote roll will be prepared,” he said.
