Even after 66 years of India's independence, citizens of Punjab state are far away from basic amenities. Although the state government is alleging to achieve goals of development but ground level position is contrary to it.
For example, in Ropar district the roads which have not been repaired after the year 2000 are: Kahanpur Khuhi Bhangal to Spalman, Jasse Majra to Harijan Basti, Sraan to Preimary School, Lower Surewal Road.
The roads which have not been repaired after 2001 are Tibba Nangal Kahanpur Khuhi Road to Sbaur, Tibba Nangal Kahanpur Khuhi Road to Katta, Singhpur to Baas Jhangrian upto Mukari, Sraan Pattan Road to Kumbhewal, Kumbhewal to Lakhno Saskaur, Nurpur Bedi to Raipur, Link Road of Nurpur Bedi Girl School. Shamshan Ghat Jimindara, Harijan to Gurdwara Slempur, Bhakku Majra School to Gurdwara.
In addition the roads from Gurdwara Baba Dhian Singh to village Bhoje Majra, Gurdwara Makkowal, Dalla Shamshan Ghat, Road of Village Kotli, Nangran Basti Mehran Road, Mehalman to Sangatpur, Sukhsal Road to Bhagwali, Kulgran to Basti Rajputaan, Kulgran to Sangatpur, Bhoot Majra Basti Road, Govt.High School to Kabir Panthi Basti Gambhirpur, Dhaahen Main Road to Khadd, Lower Surewal Road have also not been repaired.
There is also an urgent need to repair Upper Drauli Vaas Bhagtan Road, Dhiyapur Shamshan Ghat Road, Basowal to Mikapur, Road of Nangli Baas Bhatton, Khanpur to Khanpur Behlu, Jindwari Saini Water Supply Road, RGN to Lower Patti, Anandpur Sahib Naina Devi Road to Lamlehri, Lodi Pur Railway Station, Kiratpur Sahib-Bilaspur Road to Dehni, Kiratpur Sahib-Bilaspur Road to Maura, Anandpur Sahib Naina Devi Road to Shounta, NH-21 to lower Bunga, NH-21 to Bharatgarh, NH-21 to Shahi Tibbi.
The repairing of almost all link roads in Punjab
is pending after they completed 5 years of their construction. But there are many roads whose repair is pending even after completing 6-13 years. As a result, people face difficulty to reach their homes and while running on these roads, people feel that clay road is better than these roads.
These roads harm vehicles on one hand and on the other hand give invitation to accidents. The long pending repair work expose the alleged development related claims of the Punjab government.
