Harsh writes to CS over inexplicable delay in construction of Basantgarh-Khaned road

Early Times Report
Jammu, Dec 18: Accusing the Forest and PMGSY authorities of criminal negligence in fulfilling the requisite formulations for construction of Basantgarh-Khaned road sanctioned under central flagship programme in 2010, Harsh Dev Singh JKNPP Chairman appealed the Chief Secretary to take due cognizance of the brazen red tap and most despicable apathy shown by concerned officers towards the concerns of remote and rural areas.
He said that despite the work having been tendered in 2010 and the full funding having been released GOI, the work could not be completed due to lackadaisical approach of govt functionaries. He regretted that PMGSY authorities executing the work had deflected the blame to Forest Deptt for failure to give clearance and the latter was blaming the former for giving incomplete details. And in the said blame game, the people of the remotest belt of Basantgarh Tehsil were made to suffer for no fault of theirs and deprived of the benefits of a project envisaged for them under a central scheme. For how long shall the people have to suffer for the lapses of incompetent officers, questioned Harsh appealing the Chief Secretary to dispose of the Forest clearance case of the said road on priority in view brewing public resentment in the area against the extremely apathetic conduct and incompetence of the administration.
Strongly condemning the delay of 8 years in construction of Basantgarh-Khaned road, he said that the vested interests of Forest and PMGSY authorities had deprived the affected remote area people of their right to connectivity. He lamented that despite Rs.10.00 crores approx. having been sanctioned for the construction of the said road in 2010, with additional Rs.3.90 crore for its black topping sanctioned in 2012, the huge amount had remained un-expended due to unwholesome corrupt motives of the departmental authorities.
Holding the state govt responsible for the lapse, he that people of villages Basantgarh, Mang, Punara, Sang, Arthal and Khaned comprising a population of around 15000 souls had been subjected to huge inconvenience and hardships due to the inordinate delay in the construction of the said road for which the said officers needed to be made accountable and answerable. He urged upon the SAC and SVC to take cognizance of the culpable conduct of the said authorities besides their omissions and commissions and to initiate appropriate proceedings against them. He cautioned that in case the said road construction was not started immediately, thousands of people who had planned Jammu march early next month would launch indefinite dharna and protests outside Civil Secretariat, Jammu.
