J-K villagers demand reconstruction of ruined arterial road in border region

Tithwal, Sun, 09 Oct 2011 ANI

Tithwal, (Jammu and Kashmir), Oct 9 (ANI): Residents of Jammu and Kashmir's Tithwal village, which is 190 kilometers from Srinagar, on Sunday demanded the reconstruction of a ruined arterial road, as they have to face a lot of difficulties.


The village, which falls near the Line of Control (LoC), is considered to be strategically important from the military point of view.


"Here is a shortage of vehicles. The road gets blocked if there is a slight rain or snowfall. We face difficulty while traveling. If somebody falls ill we had to carry him. At times the person loses his life before reaching a hospital. The government has ignored us," said Tabasum, a local.


Locals claimed that despite their repeated pleas to government official, repair work on the roads had not begun.


"We have complained to everybody (government officials) who came here, but we don't know what happened ahead," said Mohammad Azam, another resident.


However, the Deputy Commissioner of the State's Kupwara District, Mohammad Shafi Rather, said: "This road would be reconstructed within a year or two. It will be done by the Government of India and not by J and K (Jammu and Kashmir) government. It is very important from defence point of view and it is very important for our local population."
