Ajit Colony Extn. Welfare Committee demands deep drains, black topping.


A meeting of the Executive Body of Ajit Colony Extn. Welfare Committee was held under the
Chairmanship of Bhushan Lal Koul, president. The members expressed distress over the neglect
of their most genuine demands including construction of deep drains and black topping of the
road and bylanes. This colony of ward 32 Jammu West has suffered a lot because of apathetic
attitude of those at the helm of affairs as it never got a chance to taste the much-talked ‘fruit of
development’. Erstwhile MLA was apprised of these demands dozen times but to no avail. Even
advisor to Hon’ble Governor Kewal Kumar has also been approached for redressal of these
demands but so far nothing has been done in this regard. Without a drainage system cleanliness
can’t be maintained but unfortunately no drainage system was ever laid in the colony. The
dilapidated condition of road where water collects in the potholes making both driving and
walking risky. A good number of students attend nearby SOS School and they have to face
difficulties due to the worse road condition. The only hope which remains for the residents is
Hon’ble Governor who is being appealed to get our problems of laying of deep drains and black
topping of road resolved. We hope that we will be given an appointment to personally explain
our problems.
Those who attended the meeting included Harbans Singh, Vice-president, Badri Nath Joshi,
treasurer, Amrik Singh, Pooja Rani, Krishna Devi, Ritu, Mamta, Avtar Singh, Jai Krishan,
Gurdeep Singh, Ranjeet Singh, Surjeet Singh, Shringar Singh and Arun Mandal, Secretary.
