Srinagar: National Conference (NC) on Sunday asserted that the paucity of civic amenities in the Srinagar city and the appalling condition of city roads debunks the tall claims of incumbent governor administration on providing basic and effective amenities to the people of Srinagar.

While touring many localities of Khanyar constituency, party general secretary Haji Ali Muhammad Sagar said that the incumbent governor administration had miserably failed to rise up to the development demands of the city of Srinagar.

“The government had claimed that RS 8000 crores have been air marked for the development of Srinagar city. We had sent 8 projects from this segment for the government’s approval but so far there has been no head way in that direction,” Sagar said.

“Similarly my colleagues had also sought approval for various projects in their respective constituencies. However our repeated pleas fell on deaf ears. We didn’t see the incumbent governor administration invest in the vital projects of Srinagar. The urban life of Srinagar city is beseeching for basic amenities. The city roads, inner routes and alleys are dotted with potholes. There has been no advance towards upgrading the existing infrastructure. The street lights are non-operational on various arterials. The work on various community halls and vital projects has been held up as well. The pitiable condition of city infrastructure deflates the tall claims of incumbent governor administration as far as development is concerned,” he said.
