On July 22 in Srinagar, Tariq Hameed Karra pushed for improved access to services during Muharram.
A news statement states that Karra made the demand after meeting with a group of prominent Shia community members who voiced concerns about the lack of facilities for the celebration of Muharram due to mismanagement. They also informed us that the inner roads in several regions are in a terrible state of disrepair.
According to the statement, the senior Congress leader has received several phone calls from various regions complaining about the lack of basic necessities and the unreliable electrical supply.
Nonseriousness on the part of management is reflected in claims of a lack of Muharram preparations and other amenities, including developmental necessities, in Shia-dominated communities. Karra stated, “The roads are in bad shape, and there are reports that street lights have not been installed in some areas, which has led to widespread dissatisfaction in the neighbourhood.”
He voiced grave worry about the administration’s allegedly careless approach to Muharram preparations and asked the government to devise a comprehensive strategy on a “war footing” basis to guarantee that all facilities are available to the public during the blessed month of Muharram.
