Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 20: A Union Minister at New Delhi has been allegedly prioritizing Central Road Fund (CRF) projects for J&K worth crores to his choice districts only, leaving other deserved districts in high and dry to keep his voters in good humour. Moreover, the prioritization fixed by the state government is totally changed by the said politician.
Sources told Early Times that in current year, all major projects under CRF were sanctioned to only Doda and Kishtwar districts specifically targeting his voters and ignoring the priority fixed by the state government as per reports which are sent by the Public Works Department (Road and Building).
"A lot of five CRF projects worth Rs 80 crore was sanctioned by the Centre few months back was given to Doda district. Similarly, CRF projects of approximately Rs 130 cr sanctioned recently to J&K wherein major share of 5 projects were given to Kishtwar, 3 were allocated to Leh and 2 were to Rajouri district on the direction of Union Minister," sources said, adding that given the priority, the districts like Kishtwar and Doda didn't deserve these projects.
Sources further informed that during Mehbooba Mufti government, the Rs 1200 CRF projects were sanctioned wherein main shareholder of these projects were Kathua, Doda, Baramulla and Anantnag districts, but districts like Budgam, Ganderbal, Jammu, Srinagar, Udhampur were ignored.
The priorities fixed by the state government are out rightly ignored and are fixed by the said minister according to his own will at New Delhi which defeats the basic objective of the scheme. The department sent these projects for sanction so that all constituencies are covered but these reports are not taken into consideration.
In absence of and elected government in J&K, even the projects prioritized by Governor were not given due consideration and arbitrary distribution were done by the one particular politician defying the aspiration of the people, said the sources.
