Jammu , Aug 7: Congress activists and leaders today stage protest demonstration against Public Works Department (PWD), demanding construction of RS Pura-Suchetgarh road.
According to press release, Mohan Singh senior Congress leader along with activists from different villages such as Suchetgarh, Flora, Mottey, Dher, Kang, Basti Gulag Garh, Abdal, Tohana Tibba, Kaloyein took part in the protest.
Addressing the protesters, Ch. Mohan Singh said that the R.S. Pura-Suchetgarh road is in such a pathetic condition that it has become headache for the people of the aforementioned villages.
He said that this road leads to at least 15-20 border villages and during shelling, this is the only road for retrieving people as well as supply to Army and BSF.
He blamed that previous BJP-PDP Govt has done nothing for people of Suchetgarh and it was running only on Papers and produced nothing on ground. He said that village Suchetgarh is the main attraction for the tourists from different states of India. Many tourists visit this border village frequently. But it is said with great regret that when the tourists reach Suchetgarh via R. S. Pura-Suchetgarh road, they feel disillusioned with the hollow slogans of development by the previous BJP-PDP Govt.
While interacting with SDM R. S. Pura, Ch. Mohan Singh also took up the matter of website of Food Supply which has been inactive for almost one year due to which people are facing lots of problem in adding or deleting any name in the Ration Cards. SDM R.S. Pura gave patient hearing to the demand and talked to Director Food Supplies regarding the matter. Director Food Supplies in turn said that the website will start working within a week's time.
