Sialkot: The hundreds of the people from Daska tehsil’s Kandan Sayyan, Mitraanwali and surrounding villages on Monday staged a peaceful protest demonstration against the district administration of Sialkot for its alleged height of negligence for not repairing the local main Kandan Sayyan-Mitraanwali Road, in Daska tehsil here.

The protesting people were carrying banners and placards and they chanting anti-government slogans, demanding immediate repairing of this “ill-fated” road.

Later talking to the newsmen at Daska here the local notables including Ghulam Mustafa Aasi, Haji Aftab Azhar Sayyan, Tariq Mehmood, Muhammad Bashir , Muhammad Iqbal and others told the newsmen here today that this road had not yet been reconstructed for the last one decade.

The road was presenting a look of the ponds there with several feet deep ditches on the road there. They revealed that the people had been suffering from a great ordeal while passing through this “ill-fated” road, which needs an urgent need of the local elected representatives for providing maximum relief to the local people, they added.

Expressing grave concern over this nasty situation, the local people have urged the Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif, Commissioner Gujranwala Division Tariq Najeeb Najami and Sialkot DCO Iftikhar Ali Sahu to look into the matter, in the larger interest of the people, in this regard.
