Srinagar ,February 8 2017,CNS:J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) accused Govt of ignoring historically Kapran- Desa Road and 10 KM Tunnel connecting Chenab Valley with Kashmir, on Political Lines to settle scores with people, who have not voted for them.
The party also blamed Chief Minister of deliberately ignoring this important and historical road during her meeting with Union Minister Nitin Gadkari recently, even she did not bother to mention this historical road and tunnel, which is in the pipe also.
Lashing out at State Govt led by PDP on adopting biased attitude towards the people, who have not voted for them in 2014 Elections, the Congress Spokesperson said previous State Govt aiming to boost the Tourism Sector in the state made serious efforts to make historical Kapran-Desa Road trafficable, as a result 6 KM construction on this vital road was also completed due to the personal efforts of Former CM Gulam Nabi Azad and present Congress President G.A Mir, besides this another important initiative was taken to construct 10 KM tunnel connecting Chenab Valley with Kashmir which was in the pipe line also, but the Chief Minister ignored this important project merely only political lines.
The Spokesperson added that the previous NC INC Govt got cleared the NoCs from Forest and others departments, besides this the DPR was also completed for construction of the tunnel, but this is very unfortunate that CM did not even bother to take up the issue of Kapran-Desa road and construction of Tunnel with the Union Minister Nitin Gadkari.
He said this historically important road could be an alternative to Jammu Srinagar National highway, but the irony is that PDP Led Govt is not serious about the construction of this road.
The Spokesperson urged upon the Govt especially Chief Minister to stop adopting biased approach on political lines, as it will lead to further alienation of the people, which is not a healthy sign for the development of the State.
