Ironically, they have failed to complete the project within sipulated time”, he said.

The locals urged government  to direct concerned authorities to ensure completion of the bridge.

Ferdous Nabi a social activist of Khansahab Budgam  alleged that “it has become a routine for some authorities  to initiate a project, construct some pillars or plinth and then leave it halfway,” he also said that it is because of non- seriousness of officials that Kashmir is losing race on various projects. It is unfortunate that government always extends deadlines rather then making officials account able for their failure to complete projects on time,”
