POONCH Dec 9: Construction work of the Health Sub Center in village Chandayal of Sangayot area falling under the Block Balakot of Mendhar Sub Division Poonch district has been stopped for the last 23 years. According to the information received, in 1997 the construction work of Sub Center Chandyal was started by the Rural Development department (RDD), which was taken up to the wall plate level. This was followed by an encounter with terrorists in the same area in which two militants were killed in 2004, during which the sub-center under construction was completely damaged, which no one has paid attention to till date.
Local residents Mahmokd Khan, Mohammad Taj, Ali Dad and others said that our village is a backward area. This is the last village of Mendhar Sub Division where neither there is any road nor other facility seems to be Rajouri district. He said that this village has a population of more than 700 to 800 peoples, but after walking for miles on the road during the emergency, either one has to go to Surankot or Rajouri. They said that before today we also told administrative officials including politicians many times but no one paid attention.
People have requested the Lieutenant Governor of the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir to pay attention to this and get the construction done so that the people living here do not have to face problems.
When the block medical officer Mendhar Dr Parvaiz Khan was contacted, he said that after my cognizance of this case, the complete details have been ascertained in which it is correct. The construction of the building started in 1997, which was done by the Rural Development Department. He said, I will send high officials in writing on this and will also ask for answers from the department, why the construction of the building has not been completed till date.
