JHELUM - The dilapidated condition of roads and frequent traffic jams in the city have been causing great inconvenience to the public while encroachments which had been dismantled have started appearing again.

Different local organisations including Anjuman-Behboodi District Jhelum (ABDJ) President Dr M Tariq Mirza appealed to the authorities concerned to remove encroachments particularly from main bazaar and several other localities. "Ever-increasing encroachments are not only creating traffic problems but withering the beauty of the city," he regretted. He said that the condition of traffic system in city was very poor and it was getting worst with the each passing day.

On the other hand, encroachments along roads in city and cantt area, particularly at main bazaars and commercial markets, are increasing day by day, causing many problems for the residents and resulting frequent traffic jams.
