KATHUA, Aug 18: A delegation of Village Barwal called on DDC Kathua, O P Bhagat today and apprised him about the water logging problem and difficulties being faced by people of the area due to poor drainage at Railway Subway near Barwal.
The deputation told the Deputy Commissioner that due to poor management and carelessness attitude of the Railway authorities nearly 20,000 population of the area has been put to a grave problem.  The Railway Subway is turned into deep muddy pool, the construction works left in middle and road in worse to worst condition.
The residents are forced to apply village Logate route to reaches at National Highway after covering long distance. All the people, daily commuters, employees and other people are suffering a lot since last four months. But the Railway authorities are mute spectators and did not think about the grievances of common man.  They warned to take extreme step if their problems will not be solved within days.
The DDC assured that matter will be taken up with Railway authorities for early mitigation of the problem.
The deputation also demanded development of Green Zone in indentified industrial area in Barwal to maintain ecological balance in the area. The people were assured that Industries Department would be consulted for doing the needful.
