Flood damaged foot-over Bridge in Kashmir remains a hazard for villagers

Rajouri, Nov 27 (ANI): A foot-over Bridge damaged in the floods that devastated the state of Jammu and Kashmir in September this year remains unrepaired, forcing villagers to cross the river flowing below at immense peril to their lives. Hundreds of people were killed and thousands of villages were devastated by the worst flooding in decades in the Kashmir valley. People risk their lives crossing the bridge by holding on to the steel ropes of the destroyed bridge. The villagers said that more than three months on, the bridge has not been repaired. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced 5.7 billion rupees in assistance for housing and 1.8 billion rupees to fix six major hospitals in the state that are in poor condition and need immediate federal support. Meanwhile, Sub-District Magistrate, Sukh Pal Singh, said that the bridge has sustained heavy damages. Nov 27, 2014
