uch to the annoyance of the residents, a 3-kilometers road stretch between Aabshar Colony to New Stadium Rahmoo in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district is in dilapidated condition, giving tough time to the commuters and residents.
The residents said they are experiencing hardships owing to the dilapidated condition of the road which connects the area with the main town.
They accused the administration of failing to macadamize this vital link road. “The road is lying in shambles for a long time. The roads have craters and during rains, the driving becomes difficult and risky,” Mushataq Ahmad Dar, a local said, adding that patients are the worst hit and they often reach their nearby health facility late.

“One gets bone-shattering experience while traveling on the road. The roads are filled with deep ditches and potholes that are as deep as 1 to 2 feet,” another local Ali Mohammad said.
“Whenever it rains, many vehicles get trapped in the deep potholes,” he added.
Locals said that concerned authorities have turned a blind eye towards this issue and appealed to the Lt Governor, Manoj Sinha to look into the matter.
“We have approached authorities several times but nothing positive happened on the ground,” Dae said, adding that they have pinned their hopes on the LG administration.
