Tral routes lack transport facilities in evening hours, locals allege authority’s apathy

Tral : Lack of transport during evening hours, on maximum routes of Tral, is giving tough time to the commuters particularly to the students , living in far-off villages of Tral, in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

Large number of commuters including school childrens, women and old aged persons, could be seen stranded in Bus-Stand area of the town, right from last one week, in search of vehicles. But only few vehicles are remaining available there after 3pm to ferry hundrends of commuters from different areas of Tral.

Most of routes include Tral – Satoora route , Nahir – Khasipora route, Lurow- Lurgam , Gulshanpora route, Panzoo route etc., where the transport is remaining off during evening hours, despite having large number of vehicles, available before 3pm.

“I was waiting for a Tata Sumo right from 3:30 pm today, but i couldn’t get any vehicle till 05:12pm , which gave me very much tough time. I moved here and there to get a vehicle but nothing was found.Now it becomes a routine here due to which we reach to our homes very late”, a student Sahana Ahanger said, adding that, this is badly affecting our studies.

The people have blamed that its all happening due to the callous attitude of sumo stand association members who failed to manage the system.

The people have requested higher authorities particularly President Sumo Stand Association Tral, to personally look into the matter as early as possible.

President Sumo Stand Association Tral, Noor Mohammad, however expressed helplessness, shouted and misbehaved with this reporter as he failed to give explanation regarding the said issue.
