Defunct street lights in Lal Bazar area leave people hassled

February 12, 2024 | BK CORRESPONDENT

The residents of Lal Bazar area in Srinagar are facing a persistent challenge as numerous street lights in the locality remain non-functional, plunging the streets into darkness and leaving the populace hassled and concerned for their safety.
Despite being a bustling residential and commercial hub, the lack of adequate street lighting in Lal Bazar has become a cause for widespread inconvenience and unease among residents. The situation is particularly dire during the evening hours, when visibility is drastically reduced, increasing the risk of accidents and criminal activities.
Local residents have expressed their frustration over the prolonged neglect of this essential infrastructure issue. Many cite instances of near-misses and incidents of petty crime that they attribute to the absence of proper lighting in the area. Pedestrians, in particular, feel vulnerable while navigating the poorly lit streets, raising concerns about their personal safety.
Shop owners and business establishments in Lal Bazar have also voiced their grievances, highlighting the adverse impact of the darkened streets on their operations. The lack of illumination not only deters potential customers but also creates an environment conducive to antisocial behavior, affecting business activity in the area.
Efforts to bring attention to the issue have been ongoing, with local community leaders and activists urging the concerned authorities to expedite the repair and maintenance of the defunct street lights. Calls for swift action have intensified in light of the escalating concerns raised by residents.
As the community awaits tangible progress on this front, the spotlight remains firmly fixed on the need for immediate action to restore adequate street lighting and ensure the safety and well-being of all residents in the Lal Bazar area of Srinagar.
