Jammu, September 23 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, people held a strong protest at Battal in Jammu against the anti-people policies of the authorities.
The people agitated over the worst condition of Ballian to Battal road connecting with Dhar road.
The protesting people were raising slogans against the Public Works Department (PWD) authorities and the district administration. They said that this road was repaired with a draining system last year but within months it got totally damaged due to use of substandard material.
The locals were demanding immediate repair and blacktopping of the road besides high level enquiry into the last year work on the road. “The condition of the road is so deplorable that no vehicle can ply on it,” they said, adding that the matter was repeatedly brought into the notice of higher authority but no action was taken in this regard.
