Inhabitants of Bramsat Gujjar area of Wader Bala, Rajwar in North Kashmir Kupwara district Wednesday had to ferry a patient on shoulders to nearby hospital due to the lack of road connectivity to the area.
“We have to go by foot for two kilometers to reach the nearest road,” a local Niyaz Ahmad said.
He said: “Our miseries are increasing day by day in the absence of a road.”
The village is around two kilometers from the main road and has remained deprived of basic facilities, locals allege.
“In morning my mother was suffering from pain and she was not able to walk. We took her on shoulders for two kilometers where we put her in a car and took her to the nearby medical facility,” said Khursheed Ahmad a local villager.
Locals appeal to the Governor administration to look into the matter.
Additional Deputy Commissioner Handwara Gulzar Ahmad said they should file an application and accordingly action will be initiated.
