ANANTNAG, The People of Anantnag town had requested late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed to approve de-watering station in Anantnag town after he became Chief Minister in 2002.
Later the people repeated their demand and requested Mufti in 2008 and 2014 for de-watering station but he could not approve it.
After the death of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed , the People of Anantnag voted Mehbooba Mufti to power and repeated their request to Mehbooba to approve a de -Watering station in Anantnag town as the low lying areas of the town submerge in water after some hours of raining.
But she too ignored the burning demand of the People of Anantnag town.
Recently, Hilal Ahmad Shah , the General secretary of State congress and AICC member requested the Governor NN Vohra through Media to approve de-watering station for Anantnag.
” The Governor immediately approved four de-watering stations for Anantnag town and released one rupees crore for three de-watering stations for Anantnag town.
I thank Governor for his generosity ” Said Hilal Ahmad Shah in a Press Statement issued to Sachnews Jammu Kashmir.
These de-watering stations will be installed at Mehendi Kadal, Ganjiwara and Batingoo.
Shah said that many low lying areas of the town including Armpora, Dangerpora, Court road, Ganjiwara, Pushoo Mohalla, Kamrazi Bagh and Mehendi Kadal will get relief by these de-watering stations and the long pending demand of the people of Anantnag town has been fulfilled by the Governor administration.
Hilal Ahmad Shah expressed grief and sorrow that Late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and Mehbooba Mufti neglected Anantnag town since 2002 when Late Mufti became Chief Minister of the State .
” People of Anantnag elected Mufti in 2008 and voted him to power in 2014 but he did nothing for Anantnag district ” Shah said.
” His daughter Mehbooba Mufti ruined the state and her own party and could do nothing for the people of the state especially the people of Anantnag” he added.
