Banihal: National Conference leader and district president, Ramban Sajjad Shaheen has expressed his concern over the delay in restoration of utility services in snow affected areas saying that people living in remote areas are immensely suffering after heavy snowfall as power, water and essential supplies have been adversely affected in various areas of Banihal constituency thereby causing inconvenience to the people.
“This is a matter of grave concern that the utility services in various areas of Banihal constituency are yet to be restored even after two weeks of snow fall and it seems that the administration is clueless about suffering of the people in snow bound areas” he added.
He further said that areas like Mahu-Mangit, Tajnihal, Kharwan, Dhak, Khari, Neel, Gagarnag, Shagan, Trigam, Pogal- Paristan, Sarbagni ,Chaka, Sarachi , Amkote,Thachi, Phago, Hinjhal, Chamalwas, Chaknarwah, Tanjiwar, Dardahi, Sumar, Lamber, Asshar, Chachal, Bingara, Gujrara, Nowgam and other areas are facing immense problems due to scarcity of drinking water and unscheduled power cuts.
Moreover major link roads that include Banihal-Mangit road, Khari to Mahu road, Chamalwas-Livra- Neel roads are still blocked even after more than two weeks of snow fall and the situation has further worsened after the ongoing snowfall.
He appealed to the administration to expedite the restoration work in the affected areas on war footing and restore the utility services in snow affected areas ASAP.
