Hundreds of people from village Shallapora in Kupwara Wednesday staged protest against district administration over dilapidated road conditions in the area which they say is in shambles.
Reports reaching GNS said that residents of the area blocked the Kupwara-Sopore Highway which led to halt in vehicular movement for hours.
“Last year government started construction work of the road; however, the work was left midway,” a protesting youth Abdul Rashid said adding that the dilapidated road condition is hampering the movement of the people.
Another protestor Shamima Akhtar said the inconvenient road is causing problems to school going children who have to face immense hardships to reach the school.
Shallapora is located just four kilometers from the Kupwara-Sopore National Highway.
