7/7/2020 12:29:49 AM


Ramban, July 6: Former legislator from Ramban constituency, Ashok Kumar who is also a senior Congress leader has protested against the National Highway Authority of India(NHAI) , Gammon Company and District administration Ramban. He demanded rehabilitation and proper compensation for the people of Dalwas (Ramban) where on 28 March, 2020, 40 houses and 400 Kanal of agriculture land has been completely damaged due to the unscientific cutting of slopes in the process of construction of four lane National Highway-44 by Gammon company.
It is pertinent to mention that even after 3 months these people are still deprived of tents, rents, utensils, blankets, kerosene, light systems and other essential items for their daily livelihood. Ashok said that it is very unfortunate and painful to see that these beleaguered people of Dalwas have lost every earning of their lives and are homeless and landless.
Ashok further said that unscientific construction of National Highway four lane project is the root cause of the devastation and it’s the biggest man-made disaster on National highway-44 between the stretch of Udhampur to Banihal.
The concerned companies also dumped huge muck below the village and it has also caused sinking of land. Ashok has stressed upon the government that all damaged houses amount and land cost should be given by the Companies who have caused this big sinking zones and triggered landslides. District administration Ramban should also take this matter seriously and provide all possible help in terms of food, shelter and essential commodities, blankets and other essential things on war footing.
Ashok demanded from the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir that separate plots for 40 affected families should be immediately provided at suitable place so that they can construct their new houses.
In addition, rehabilitate these affected families at suitable places for their survival in upcoming winters along with transparent and proper compensation. Education of Children should also be taken care of and one year free food ration should also be given to every affected soul with or without ration card.
Ashok has further said that some affected elders both men and women are under adjustment disorder and other mental illness due to complete loss of their land and houses. He stressed that team of Doctors from batote CHC or Ramban district hospital should also visit at dalwas high school and Sub-centre dalwas for their immediate treatment. It is a huge disaster triggered by the concerned companies for the innocent and voiceless hilly people.
Ashok has said that some emergency treatment should be given to the whole dalwas area with experts of geology and advanced engineers for smooth construction of four lane NH-44 with out damaging houses and livelihood of rural poor people. Afforestation along the slopes of NH-44 should be done on war footing where the cutting of slopes have been done or other innovative measures are required to stop this unsustainable development in this crucial times.
