Srinagar gets Rs 15K Cr Metro Project, Jammu gets nothing
Jammu leadership's stoic silence bears fruit
1/11/2017 2:08:32 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 10: At a time when discrimination is ruling the roost in Jammu and Kashmir state with Jammu being given meagre funds as compared to Kashmir Valley, the stoic silence of those claiming to represent Jammu is worrisome as while ignoring the winter capital, Metro at a whooping cost of 15 thousand crores is being constructed in Srinagar.
It is pubic now that the tentative capital cost of the project is Rs 15881 crore and a detailed survey will be conducted from April 01, 2017 and the complete Draft DPR will be submitted by September 2017 to the State Government. In the DPR three Corridors for the Srinagar Metro Project have been mentioned.
In first Corridor, the service will be from HMT Junction to Panthachowk Bus Stand via Qamarwari, Batamaloo Bus Stand, Lal Chowk, Sonawar and Badamibagh.
While the second corridor will be from Osmanabad (Pandach) to Srinagar Airport via Soura, Alamgiri Bazar, Jamia Masjid, Khanyar, Lal Chowk, Jawahar Nagar, Rambagh and Hyderpora.
From HMT to Pantha Chowk via State Motor Garages Bemina, Gulberg Colony and Hyderpora is the Third Corridor of the Metro Train Project and all corridors have total length of 58 Kms. On the occasion, the Divisional Commissioner directed the Rites Agency that to extend the corridor first upto Pampore and Corridor third up to Budgam instead of Panthachowk. The government has also directed the ERA Agency to collect all details from Srinagar Master Plan and Smart City Project.
Meanwhile, what is proving to be more ironic is the pin drop silence of the leaders of Jammu region who con
Wake up before it is late
The criminal silence of Jammu leadership has yet again proved that Jammu based leaders have bartered the interests of Jammu people for the sake of power. Srinagar has once again bagged the Lion's share by getting Rs 15K Cr metro project. Jammu leaders need to wake up before its too late.
inue to maintain the rhetoric of representing the aspirations of the Jammu region in the state and on the floor of the house.
It is worth to mention here that the Jammu and Kashmir government hasn't kept any such proposal in pipeline for the Jammu region, hence rejecting its right to development at the ground level.
Earlier, also it was Kashmir Valley for which the prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) was sanctioned. It was only after the severe protest demonstrations and raising of the pitch by the Jammuites that the medical institute was sanctioned for the region as well.
Meanwhile, Jammu is closer to the national capital with calm prevailing in the region round the year, it was ought to get the Metro rail project first. Unlike Valley, wherein even the train services remained suspended for four months after Burhan Wani's killing on July 8, 2016, Jammu witnessed calm with even Valley based parents preferred the summer capital for the studies of their children. No less than 50, 00 students during the unrest period migrated to Jammu for studies last year. Also, during the recent turmoil, infrastructure worth crores was damaged by the arsonists not even sparing the railway tracks that witnessed extensive damage. However, the dispensation here seems to have put all these aspects under the carpet. "We believe Jammu witnesses more traffic snarls than Valley. It has more congestion on roads. The Metro should have been given to Jammu as well but the silence has engulfed within the camps of those who could have raised their voices," says an official.
