Even after the tender process have been done and for more than months together the division is yet to award the work to any executing firm so as to start the work. Due to pathetic condition of the road the NIT is yet to start classes in its permanent campus at Jote and recent unrest of the NIT students have been experienced. He quoted.
He said that we have served several memorandum to the authority which include PWD department, district administration, DCM and even submitted memorandum to CM and governor twice but the condition of the road is as is was and life of the people of the area have become miserable.
