SADIQABAD-The alleged indifference on the part of public representatives and departments concerned has left the main city roads in deteriorated condition.

Renowned industrialist and member of RY Khan Chamber of Commerce and Industry Ch Mazhar Mehmood Sattar said that the roads including Tillu, Minthar, Jamaluddin Wali and Bhong roads are in dilapidated condition. He said the roads are causing multiple problems for the transporters who use the roads for transportation of cotton and sugarcane crops across the country. "Every year, we pay tax for using roads but the administration and public representatives have never bothered to take any step for their repair," he regretted. He flayed the government for denying 1 million Sadiqabadians' right to live a respectable life as they lack basic facilities. He demanded the public representatives and departments concerned to ensure repair to these roads, warning that people from all adjacent villages will be forced to stage protest otherwise.
