Kangan, Oct 12: Rural and Development Department has spent government money to construct a road leading towards the owner of a single house hold in Central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district.
The locals from Paethpora Chattergul area said that on the instructions of R&D Department officials a road was constructed using government money for the comfort of a house owner. “The owner of the house is affiliated with a political party and that is why he was given a special treatment,” they said.
“The Department was supposed to construct roads under MGNREGA in the area that are in shambles, but the officials in a bid to appease an individual constructed a road for him and ignore the rest,” they said.
The locals sought intervention from Governor Administration and action against those involved in it. (CNS)
