Early Times Report
Jammu, Oct 22: The much delayed Bahu-Mahamaya-Peerkho ropeway project has been mocking at the former minister of Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP), who had inspected the project with much fanfare, which proved to be merely a photo opportunity for the controversial coalition partner.
Former BJP Minister and the then MoS Tourism Priya Sethi had inspected the trial run of the ropeway project on April 27, 2018 but after lapse of over one and half year, still the ropeway project is yet to be made function.
"The politicians tried to portray themselves as champions of Jammu cause and had tried to secure mileage from a half completed project but its incomplete nature still mocks at them and their claims", an official said, adding that even the clearance from the technical committees was still pending.
Though some labourers were also killed in, when a trolley had met with an accident during trail, holding labourers' negligence squarely responsible for it, clearing the senior officials.
"Even though the state as well as union government has been claiming of accelerating the developmental cycle in the state but the fate of Jammu cable car like projects explains otherwise", official said, adding that even as per the officials' claims, the project had to be complete in the month of June 2019, but even after four months of this latest deadline, the project is yet to made functional, whose foundation stone was laid on February 2014.
Managing Director of J&K Cable Car Corporation Limited, (JKCCCL) Shamim Ahmed Wani claimed that after completion of the construction work, they had given green signal for further action. "Various inspections have to be done including inspection by Mechanical, Civil and Electrical engineering wings", he said, adding that the Mechanical and Electrical inspections have already completed while a team of Civil engineers had visited today, and shortly the project would be ready.
He further said that as per guidelines the work on the project was started in August 2016 and it had to be completed in 28 months that was in June 2019, but due to an accident, it was delayed.
