Massive landslide damages 40 houses in Kathua

Landslide damages 40 houses in Kathua
 
As many as 40 houses and a government school building were damaged in a landslide at Morha-Chuhara village in Billawar tehsil of Kathua district, following which Congress today demanded that the state government ensures early rehabilitation of  the affected people.
 
“We demand that the government pay compensation to the affected families at par the amount paid in Srinagar, and immediately provide tents, ration and all possible medical help to the landslide-hit people of Morha-Chuhara village in Billawar tehsil,” J&K State Congress General Secretary and Former Minister Manohar Lal Sharma said today.
 
He hit out at the state government and BJP ministers including Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh and Health Minister Lal Singh — both of whom belong to Kathua district, alleging that they had failed to come to their help.
 
The landslide hit Morha-Chuhara village and Panchayat Uchha Pind in Tehsil Ramkot of Billawar Sub Division in Kathua district yesterday.
 
As many as 40 houses and one government school building were damaged, Sharma said.
 
Meanwhile, the residents today blocked Dhar road for three-and-a- half hours at Poungran protesting against the apathy of the local administration and the state government.
 
Sharma assured full support of Congress to the affected families. He also took up the matter with the Jammu Divisional Commissioner.
