Chamba, October 1

The Chamba Welfare Association, an NGO, has urged the local administration and the municipal council to take urgent safety measures for unsafe buildings in the town, so that any mishap could be avoided.

Association president AK Bhardwaj and general secretary SK Kashmiri, said these old and dilapidated buildings had either collapsed or were on the verge of collapsing.

In the thick of the Chamba town, especially Hatnala, Chauntra and Jansali wards of the council, some old buildings were more than 100 years old and had become unsafe due to neglect and lack of upkeep.

Moreover, these buildings were a blot on the beauty of the town, apart from endangering the life of the residents as well as commuters, they stated.

Recently, the Deputy Commissioner had also ordered the municipal council to take necessary action in this regard, but no attention was paid towards the problem yet, they added.
