Excelsior Correspondent

RAJOURI,  Feb 21:  The people from Dodaj area  of Rajouri held protest against the R&B authorities for the worst condition of   Darhal -Dodaj road in district Rajouri.
A large number of people from Dodaj and adjoining area came out on the road  and started protest demonstration today. They were shouting slogans against State R&B Minister, Chief Engineer, SE and Executive Engineer concerned.  The people expressed strong resentment over the attitude of  total neglect  by the concerned authorities. They had also held protest on Monday at the village as well.
The people alleged that this road has been badly damaged due to rains and movement of loaded tractors. No repair work has been initiated by the R&B authorities and the public has been left to suffer. The Administration is also sleeping over the matter.
The matter was also brought to the notice of the  District Administration and the SDM concerned but they have not taken cognizance of the matter. They warned to intensify the agitation in near future. Tehsildar and SHO Darhal assured them to take up the matter with the SE R&B Circle Rajouri-Poonch.
