BANIHAL, Mar 5: National Conference leader and District president Ramban, Mir Sajjad Shaheen today conducted extensive tour to Village Kawna, Ahma, Kumbla, Udhala, Pathhalan in Khari Tehsil and took stock of the situation arisen after long spell of heavy snowfall during the winter.
He met people in Khari and Nachlana also where locals apprised him about erratic power supply in far-off areas of the tehsil due to snapping of electric poles and wires following heavy snowfall. The people also complained about scarcity of drinking water in several villages.
Shaheen said the road connectivity to Khari -Mahu and Banihal -Mangit roads is in bad shape and the delay in restoration work has badly impacted the mobility and added to the miseries of the people.
He particularly referred to the frequent blockade of Nachlana – Khari -Mahu road due to sinking of a major portion of the road at Hirnihal in Khari tehsil, saying no serious effort is being made to repair the road, Adding that the concerned agencies must formulate a comprehensive plan of construction of a permanent bridge at the sinking portion as a long term solution as people are facing enormous problems due to frequent closure of the only link road connecting the area with rest of the district.
