Poonch, August 01 (Scoop News)- Provincial President Youth National Conference and former MLA, Ajaz Jan has appealed to the Lt Governor Manoj Sinha to constitute teams to assess the damages to people in Haveli Poonch constituency affected by the recent incessant rains.

The demand was made by Jan while addressing media persons after concluding his three days tour of Haveli Poonch constituency conducted by him to take stock of damages due to flash floods and incessant rains in the region.
The senior NC leader informed that extensive damage has been caused across the Haveli Poonch constituency. He said that he visited five blocks of the constituency namely Poonch, Nangali Sai Baba, Sathra, Mandi and Loran Block and found that several were damaged with walls having got washed away due to rain water. He added that eighty percent of the roads in this constituency stand badly damaged thus having made the life of people especially the poor living in these areas quite miserable.
