Srinagar: After being mentioned by Lieutenant Governor in his recent radio talk show ‘Awaam ki Awaaz’ Sajad Ahmad Sofi from Aishmuqam, district Anantnag thanked him for his response.
Sofi reverberated that the LG has ‘outstanding contribution’ in the development of the UT. He also recorded that LG Sinha has put immense hard work in serving people at the front.
Earlier, Sofi has put forth certain demands pertaining to public development works & creation of infrastructure here. He has made his observations about the design and accessibility to public convenience infrastructure across valley. Sofi says that these public utilities are unfortunately less user-friendly for old aged and specially-abled persons.
He believes that these public conveniences are lacking advanced features that could assist old, weak, and disabled to use them easily. He observes that people with orthopaedic problems and other physical disabilities are suffering for want of such facilities in public toilets.
He suggests that such facilities like construction of ramps and other disable-friendly utilities should be constructed in public places and government offices also.
Sofi mentions that he heard the previous episodes of Awaam ki Awaaz where demands put forth were instantly approved. He thanks the Lieutenant Governor for devising this platform for listening to people’s suggestions and views.
