As many as 28-kilometre main Daska-Pasrur Road has become dilapidated with three to four feet deep ditches almost everywhere on the road due to alleged slackness of the local elected representatives of people in Daska and  Pasrur tehsils.

This is the only main road providing communication facilities to more than 200,000 people of 200 villages of these tehsils. The people intending to go Daska, Pasrur, Chawinda, Qila Kalarwala, Zafarwal and Narowal are facing great difficulties. They said that no vehicle even donkey-carts were able to pass through these ditches safely on this main road, which often present a look of pond with the drainage and rainy water during rain. Even no one can pass by foot through this road safely.

Markazi Anjuman Tajraan Daska President Mian Muhammad Ashraf, Ch Maqbool Ahmed Gujar, Ch Maqsud Dogar, Adnan Gujar, Hameedullah Khan, Nouman Rasheed, Muhammad Ashraf and Imran Ahmed Lambardar strongly protested against the nasty situation.

Talking to newsmen here, they said that hundreds of thousands people frequently travel through this dilapidated and shabby road, while hundreds of local farmers also bring their agricultural produce in local Mandies at Daska and Pasrur as that was the only main road which links Daska with Pasrur.

They pointed out that the road was constructed 20 years ago, since then it had never been repaired or constructed. The travelling of minutes was being done in hours due to very slow paced movement of vehicles on this road, they said and added that dozens of main dacoity and robbery incidents have been occurred on the road.

They said that PML-N MNA Zahid Hamid, Pasrur based federal minister for science and technology, MNA Sahibzada Syed Iftikharul Hassan Shah (Daska) and MPAs Ch Mohsin Ashraf Baryar and Muhammad Asif Bajwa (Daska) had made several political promises regarding early construction of this main road before the 2008 general elections and now even in the 2013 general elections. But, after winning these polls, they have yet honoured their political promises regarding the reconstruction of Daska-Pasrur Road, they regretted.

The people urged Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and others officials concerned to take serious notice of the critical situation and ensure early re-construction of the road.

On the other hand, the hundreds of people from Daska tehsil’s Kandan Sayyan, Mitraanwali and surrounding villages staged a protest demonstration against the district administration of  Sialkot for its alleged height of negligence for not  repairing the local main Kandan Sayyan-Mitraanwali Road. in Daska tehsil. The protesters were carrying banners and placards and chanting anti-government slogans, demanding immediate repairing of the road. Later, talking to newsmen at Daska, the local notables including Ghulam Mustafa Aasi, Haji Aftab Azhar Sayyan, Tariq Mehmood, Muhammad Bashir , Muhammad Iqbal and others said that the road had not yet been reconstructed for the last one decade.
