Build­ing a Res­i­den­tial Com­plex in Shin­gal

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Has­san Shin­gali

I was so happy and joy­ful when I heard of the elec­tions and com­ing back to my lovely town Shin­gal. Re­turn­ing from Duhok to Shin­gal takes the whole three hours, but I was not dis­cour­aged be­cause of my zest and hap­pi­ness which I felt to see my home­town again. Shin­gal, the town that has suf­fered a lot and un­der­went many dif­fi­cul­ties dur­ing the pre­vi­ous regime, is now en­joy­ing de­vel­op­ments in many fields. People were ex­tremely ex­cited about the com­ing of the two elec­tions and they went en­thu­si­as­ti­cally to the bal­lot boxes to vote for their fu­ture and for the sake of a bet­ter Shin- gal . A great num­ber of people cast their votes and the whole process went smoothly.

Many projects and ser­vices have been car­ried out in Shin­gal re­cently like build­ing schools, gov­ern­men­tal in­sti­tu­tions and many more un­der the su­per­vi­sion of the Kur­dis­tan's Re­gional Govern­ment (KRG). In the last few decades, the town was ne­glected. It was just like a desert, no one paid at­ten­tion to it and there were not many projects un­der­taken in the town. But now and spe­cially when the Kur­dish Govern­ment be­gan to in­vest cap­i­tal here and tried to mod­ern­ize the town, it has be­come a suc- cess story. More­over, the people are hav­ing a sense of free­dom and in­de­pen­dence. Shin­gal is one of the dis­puted ter­ri­to­ries be­tween the Iraqi govern­ment and Kur­dis­tan, people still hope that it will be con­joined to the greater Kur­dis­tan's one day and will en­joy ev­ery right that the Kur­dish people have un­der the rule of their own Kur­dish govern­ment.

Vian Dakheel , the can­di­date of the Kur­dish Al­liance to the Iraqi Coun­cil of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, has an­nounced that there is a res­i­den­tial project un­der­way in Shin­gal and the process is go­ing on well . The project con­sists of 375 new apart- ments and she pointed out that the project has cre­ated 1,200 job op­por­tu­ni­ties for the Shin­gali cit­i­zens. The con­struc­tion of the res­i­den­tial units will cost 43 bil­lion Iraqi Di­nars and it will be com­pleted in two years time.

"The Ju­di­cial Coun­cil will take the re­spon­si­bil­ity of dis­tribut­ing the apart­ments to the needy people af­ter the com­ple­tion of the project. The work­force will be the Shin­gali people only and that pro­vides the un­em­ployed with work ," said Dakheel.
