Rajouri 19 Nov : Senior PDP leader Shahzad Khan condemned the state government for its failure to provide the basic civic amenities to the people.
In a press release issued here today he said that the Municipal Council has become defunct in Rajouri as it has failed to provide the people with basic civic amenities. Taking stock of the civic sanitation, clean drinking water among other things, Shahzad said that there is no garbage diaposal process in the town. It is unfortunate that the gabage of the whole town is disposed off in the bus stand area or the nearby river which is not only polluting the river but also damaging the plants and organisms there.
Shahzad said that clean drinking water is not supplied to the people.
The water filtration plant has not been working for the last so many years despite repeated requests and applications.
The electricity supply poles and wires are hanging dangerously but the Power Department is literally ignoring the safety of the people. Taking the issue of the quality of roads and their maintenance in the town, he said that the roads are broken in many parts and nothing is being done for their repairs.
The Municipality is thoroughly become corrupt and in the due process of its vested interests, the people are suffering. It is doing nothing but minting money at the cost of the safety and security of the people. Others who spoke on the occassion were Tahir lone,Master Iqbal shah,Javid khan,Nadeem sheikh,Ghulam ahmed and others.
