Pulwama, Dec 05: People in south Kashmir’s Pulwama Township complained that there is no footpath available in the town as pedestrians are being compelled to walk alongside the traffic.

Locals told Kashmir Images that pedestrians find it very hard to walk through the town as they are supposed to walk along with vehicles. “Some people mange to walk through the traffic but the school going children and elderly find it very hard to do so,” said a pedestrian, Iqbal Ahmad.

Traders President Pulwama, Nisar Ahmad, said: “We have already brought the issue in the notice of Deputy Commissioner Pulwama, MLA Pulwama and Advisor to Governor but nothing has been done in this regard so far.”

When contacted Deputy Commissioner Pulwama, Ghulam Mohammad Dar, said: “We are planning to construct footpaths in near future.”
