Anantnag, Aug 1: The Gujjar community of Gursi Mohalla Leesu village continue to live under darkness as there is no electricity, no road connectivity and no drinking water facility available for this village located just few kilometers from the larnoo area of south Kashmir’s Anantnag district.
The residents of this village suffer a lot because of the lack of basic amenities provided to every citizen of the state by the government.
“We still use the ancient kerosene lamps during night time because we haven’t seen the electricity yet even in this modern world. We have to bring drinking water from a nearby water canal because we have not been provided any water supply by the concerned department. Even we don’t have any kind of the link road connectivity for our mohalla because of which we suffer a lot” said a resident of Gursi.
“Our children suffer a lot because of these problem we have to face on daily basis. Their studies are suffering a lot because they can’t study properly at home because of non availability of electricity” said another resident of this village.
The residents of this mohalla said that they have approached almost every concerned officer like Executive Engineers of electric department, PHE department and R&B department , but nothing happened yet. Every time they assure us that our basic and essential demands will be fulfilled but nothing has been done so far.
They said that during elections we have been assured by every poltical party that they will provide everything to the village subject to the condition that if the people will vote in their favour. But after elections no political leader ever gave us anything.
They appealed to the Governor Administration to redress their problems immediately so that they can live their lives happily.
