Villages of Doda have no road connectivity for 70 years

Jammu, July 13 (HS) Even after more than 70 years of Independence, residents of about a dozen villages in Doda district in Jammu and Kashmir are forced to carry patients on their shoulders or on "palki", owing to no road connectivity. Sujeet Parihar, a resident of Punakker, Malwana said that we are facing hardship due to the unavailability of road connectivity and due to this people carry patients on Palki for miles.

"We are forced to travel by foot upto five kilometres carrying patients on 'PALKI' (manmade wooden chair) to reach nearby road. He blamed successive regimes for ignoring long pending demands of road connectivity of people," he added.

Suresh Kumar a leader of Sarazi Youths and Student Federation said that we are requesting continuously from district administration and RDD department to construct road, which is left in midway by the department, but authorities have turned blind eye.
