RAWALPINDI - The dilapidated condition of the road leading from 22 Number Chungi to Bakra Mandi Chowk has mounted the miseries of motorists, business community and residents of the area. Hundreds of small and big ditches of different radius have appeared on the road, often filled with dirty water oozing out of broken water pipelines. Despite hard efforts by the City Traffic Wardens, a massive traffic block has become a routine matter owing to the rough condition of the road. Similarly, various vendors and goat-sellers on both sides encroached upon the road, causing hindrance in the smooth flow of traffic. The shopkeepers in the area complained that their businesses were going in the loss as consumers avoid visiting their shops due to gushed water and mud in front of their shops. The residents of Constituency PP-9 voiced their concerns over the negligence of the people's representatives and demanded of the Chief Minister Mian Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif to pay heed to the grave situation. A resident Muhammad Saleem said the road has not been repairing for the long time. He said that though public representatives had made promises of carrying development works during electioneering but they will yet to honour their words. An old man Haji Sher said that it was too difficult for pedestrians to walk easily on this road, as speedy cars and bikes splashed dirty water on people. "Now I am going to Mosque to offer my prayer but not sure whether I will succeed to save my clothes from the splash of unclean water or not," he lamented. He demanded of the government to repair the road as early as possible. A shopkeeper Suhail Ahmed, while pointing his finger towards filthy water flooded in front of his shop, said; "How can any customer take risk to pass through this pound to buy items from my shop". "Government must pay attention on the poor condition of the road," he added. When contacted, PML-N MPA Chaudhry Ayaz revealed Rs 10 million has been allocated for this purpose and work on this road would soon be started.
