MENDHAR(M S Nazki): Strong resentment is brewing among the residents here against failure of the authorities to undertake repairs of the Surankote-Buffliaz road. The aggrieved local residents have demanded suspension of toll tax collection till the road is repaired.

The condition of the roads is so bad that most of the motorists have stopped to ply their vehicles on the stretch. The road at many places including Surankote Main Bazar to Degree College Surankote and TCP chowk is dotted with potholes posing risk of accidents. 

The locals said the General Reserved Engineer Force (GREF) has failed to undertake even minor repairs of the vital road. On the other side, the local panchayat collects toll tax from the vehicles passing through the road maintained by the GREF "Government should stop collection of toll tax till repairs of the road is undertaken."  

Stressing immediate repair of the road, the civil society 
members said if the GREF failed to undertake immediate repairs, they will launch an agitation against it. 

Meanwhile, the business man also expressed concern over the bad condition of the road saying it has drastically affected their business.
