Roads request in galhuta
Mendhar, Poonch District   said on
i am from Kandi Galhutta. In our locality there is a problem of road. Due to the unavailability of road in our area, we are passing our lives with very difficulty. We, the students go school/college without any transport which results in waste of the time i.e, 5 hours to come and go. From Kandi Galhutta to Mendhar. A road of PMGSY from Mendhar Kota to Upper Kandi Galhutta is under construction from last 5 years which is not completed due to the Starting point is not available from Kota because the people of Kota are not ready to give their land for road about(200 m). I am requesting to the government and PMGSY department that if the people of Kota are denying to allow to join this starting point then you should choose other option to join road with starting point i.e, up/down-left/right. We shall be thankful.
