Early Times Report

Jammu, July 19: Accusing BJP, Congress of adopting selective approach in development of area, the residents of Sanjay Nagar Sec-1 said that leaders did developmental work in their supporters' locality and left the others.
The dilapidated roads in some parts of Sanjay Nagar area of Sec-1 are proof of their dirty vote bank policy due to which residents have been facing huge difficulty.
Continuing his mass contact programme, Munish Gupta, Editor Early Times, who would be contesting upcoming assembly election as an independent candidate from Gandhi Nagar constituency met a large number of people of Sanjay Nagar Sec-1 and Digiana Rani Talab and informed them about his vision.
"Some part of road has been macadamised in our area while the roads which passing through our residences have been left, which clearly shows that selective policy has been adopted by the leaders. We approached the department that our road is in total dilapidated condition and huge potholes have developed making it difficult for pedestrian and vehicular movements. It has been ten years when the road was blacktopped last time which has now broken and need immediate macadam," said Anchal Gupta, Alok Nath and Vinod. Kashmir Kour, a local resident, while strongly criticising the hollow claims made by the mainstream parties leaders, particularly BJP, said that last time BJP leader Kavinder Gupta had come to their area for canvassing votes during assembly elections and had assured that the road will be blacktopped once he wins the election but after winning the elections he neither fulfilled his promise nor he turned up to this area resulting the civic problems of our area are getting multiplied. Besides, the residents raised the issue of poor sanitation and alleged that the drain remain blocked at many points, lanes are unclean. "The drains in our lanes are not cleaned regularly and their cleanliness is conducted once in 2-3 months due to which drains start emanating foul smell making difficult for us to breathe. Concerned authority has been informed about this problem many a time but no action has been taken till date," said Sreshtha Sharma, Bimla Devi, resident of Digiana Ward No. 46. Another resident of the area Subhash Rani said that lanes are broken at many places and local leaders were informed about this problem but they have turned blind eye towards it. Diwakar Prabhakar, a resident of Sanjay Nagar pointed out the issue of insanitation created by a workshop of a very renowned Sweet Shop in this area. He said that the toilet and sewer pipe has directly been thrown into the drain which is in the entry point of the area. The foul smell of latrine in the drain has made the life of locals a hell, this awful picture present a bad name to the locality. "We complaint many a time to them for stopping this mess but they have turned a deaf ears to the plight of locals," he said. Some residents have complaint against the erratic water supply in the area. "The water supply in some part of the area is very poor, and water comes for a very short period which is inadequate for storing water to meet out daily need," said Bimla Gupta, Shiv Saini of Sanjay Nagar. Rakesh Kumar of Digiana said that he belongs to a poor family and recently their house which was in dilapidated condition was collapsed. "We tried to construct it and spent all money they have but could only raise its walls and lying of roof top could not be done due to paucity of money. We work as labourers and have no other source of income," he said.
