Sopore, Feb 01 : Following the snowfall in Kashmir, the water logging in Sopore areas here have irked the local populace, who demanded immediate dewatering of the roads.

The commercial areas like Super Bazar, Downtown and College road are the worst hit as the pedestrians and vehicles were seen navigating through the waters.

Whenever it rains, a massive water logging due to the improper drainage system in the town always push the locals to the wall, the residents told the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO).

They said that despite repeated pleas to the administration for making a proper mechanism, the authorities failed to take necessary measures in this regard, leaving the people to lurch at large.

“The roads and streets have turned into small ponds,” a local resident, Tahir Ahmed said.

“The issue of persistent water logging can only be solved with the construction of a proper drainage system here,” Bilal Ahmed, a local resident said.

The residents have appealed district administration as well as to the concerned department to dewater the roads so that the people could heave a sigh of relief—(KNO)
