Hyderabad: Thousands of pilgrims not only from Telangana but from various parts of India and other countries visit Jahangir Peer Dargah daily.
The dargah, known as JP dargah, is managed by the Telangana State Wakf Board. Despite receiving huge donations, the concerned authorities failed to provide basic infrastructure near the dargah.
Pilgrims visiting the dargah face many difficulties due to overflowing sewers and poor roads leading to the shrine. They find it difficult to reach the dargah even on foot.
Speaking to journalists from Siasat, the local people said that the government and the concerned authorities of the Wakf Council are not paying attention to the difficulties they and the pilgrims are facing. Along with the poor roads, the garbage piled up by the nearby lake has become a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other flies.
Relevant authorities should take concrete steps to address the inconveniences faced by pilgrims and residents of Jahangir Peer Dargah.
