2005-built marriage hall in Pulwama’s Bellow still awaits first wedding amid administrative neglect

Common Facility Centre model village Bellow Pulwama.

Pulwama: Despite being built in 2005, the marriage hall in Bellow village of southern Kashmir’s Pulwama district is yet to host a wedding due to administrative neglect.

Originally constructed following the village’s recognition as a model village, residents lament its current state of disuse.

Mushtaq Ahmad Mir, a local resident, expressed disappointment while speaking to the news agency KNT over the deteriorating condition of the hall, citing administrative inaction despite repeated pleas for assistance.

The absence of a protective wall on the building’s backside has led to it being used as a dumping ground for garbage, exacerbating its decline.

Elderly villagers, when interviewed, echoed a sense of despair over the hall’s continued neglect.

Shabir Ahmad Mir, another resident, proposed repurposing the structure into a Public Health Centre to enhance healthcare services in the area.
