Flood victims protest against Lone, Reshi

Bandipore:  Flood victims are still wandering from pillar to post to secure financial relief in a Constituency that is represented by a legislators from NC and PDP.

Hundreds of people from dozens of hamlets of Sonawari Constituency including Inderkoot, Shahgund, Rakhshilwat, Nowgam, Markundal, Khatpora, Asham, Baharabad, Mukhdamyari, Preng, Sadarkoot, Gulshanpora assembled outside SDM office Sumbal and staged a protest against the government. The protesters alleged that the incumbent MLA Muhammad Akbar Lone and MLC Yasir Reshi are indifferent towards their miseries and have miserably failed to solve their problems.

“You will not believe that last time Rs 3800 flood relief cheques that we obtained from the government got bounced and we didn’t get a single penny. When we approach the SDM office, the officials their direct us to either get a marked application from MLA or MLC and ironically both these so-called representatives of people refuse to meet us citing their busy schedule,” the protesters said.CNS
