It has been more than seven years since the foundation stone for the construction of the bridge in Khara area of Inderwal constituency in Doda district was laid.
The work on the construction of a bridge in Goila area of Khara in Inderwal constituency has been going on at snail’s pace for the last 7 years causing inconveniences and anxiety among the inhabitants.
The work on the bridge was started in 2011 and is yet to be constructed. The residents of Khara, Trankhal, Rajin, Hija, Bhola and its adjoining areas have complained that they face difficulties in commuting around due to the slow pace of construction work on the bridge.
Villagers alleged that lackadaisical attitude of the authorities has shaken their political faith as they feel they have been deliberately ignored.“If the Government has completed other development works why is ours pending from last seven years,” said a local resident.
