Jammu, March 15: In an ongoing protest local shop owners, traders and residents of the Gummat area near the Jammu Municipality Corporation office today blocked the road for an hour. The locals allege that the JMC workers had dug up the drains for widening and left them blocked 2 weeks ago leaving the work mid-way.
Due to continuous rains over the last few days, the water mixed with the drain waste entered the shops and homes in the area.
Not only that, the protesters also allege that the stones dug up outside were left on the road and after being pushed by car tyres, these stones also broke the glasses of two shops in the area. They further allege that a boy was hit with a stone and received multiple stitches on his head.
