A resident cut down  his poplar trees here in Shiekhpora Tarhama on Tuesday to what he said “awaken the authorities”.


Nazir Ahmad Qadri, a retired headmaster, uploaded a video on Facebook in which he appealed the deputy commissioner Baramulla and SDM Tangmarg  and Tehsildar Karhama to take a serious note of the “health hazard caused by the harmful  poplar trees in the area”, which, according to him, the government had assured would be cut down but “the orders remained limited only upto papers.”


“We have identified three major habitations with of these harmful poplar trees and have apprised the same to SDM Tangmarg and as a token initoative I cut down my own few trees today to awake the authorities because the pollen from these is proving highly allergic to health” Qadri said.
