JAMMU, Oct 19: Corporator of Ward No 42, Vijay Choudhary along with Ch Manmohan Singh (former Mayor) started black topping work of lanes left over lanes in Sector 5 of Nanak Nagar.
It was a long pending demand of residents of Sector 5 as these lanes were broken since long, while during the rains, flooding of the lanes further deteriorated the condition of the roads. With beginning of blacktopping work, residents expressed relief and said that last times these lanes were blacktopped during the tenure of Ch Manmohan Singh (former Jammu Mayor).
