Excelsior Correspondent

UDHAMPUR, Oct 3: Hundreds of inhabitants of village Lander and adjoining area are suffering due to extremely poor condition of the Udhampur-Lander road, which has turned from bad to worst in the last two years.
Alleging no action by the PWD administration to repair the road and improve its condition, locals of village Lander and adjoining area also held a protest demonstration today and raised slogans against the concerned authorities.
According to the locals, Krimachi -Lander road is State Highway as per records but its condition is worst than a tractor road. Further, they added, it is too congested to be categorized as State highway and only a single vehicle can pass through that too with utmost difficulty.
Due to bad condition of the road, it takes three to four hours for covering a distance of 55 kilometers and 17 accidents have taken place on this road in the last five years.
