Apni Party demands withdrawal of alleged anti-people order on Mughal Road
9/24/2020 11:11:11 PM

Srinagar, Sept 24: Demanding withdrawal of 'anti-people' order about historic Mughal road, Apni Party (AP) on Thursday alleged it seems that there are some officers in J&K administration who are hell-bent on drawing sadistic pleasure from inflicting more miseries on the people.
Vice president Zaffar Iqbal Manhas on Thursday ridiculed the government's conditional order on partial reopening of Mughal Road for the general public.
In a statement issued here, Manhas sought personal intervention of Lt Governor Manoj Sinha and the chief secretary for revocation of this anti-people order.
He said the conditional order issued by district administration on partial reopening of the Mughal Road in which the commuters have been asked to approach Divisional Commissioner's office before taking to Mughal Road for travel is one such example which reflects the sadistic mindset of anti people elements in J&K administration.
"An illogical order has come at a time when the Mughal Road will now remain open for just two months before its closure for at least six months in the winter. This official diktat has added insult to injury by putting a condition on common passengers who are supposed to seek permission from their respective Divisional Commissioners before embarking on travel via Mughal Road," Manhas said.
Questioning the logic behind this administrative order, AP vice president has said that it is beyond one's comprehension that how a hapless passenger desirous to travel from Shopian to Surankot or Poonch or vice versa will first visit Srinagar or Jammu and run from one office to other for the prerequisite permission letter and then he or she will start a formal journey on Mughal Road.
"Similarly, a traveler wanting to travel from Poonch to Shopian or Srinagar will have to first visit Jammu and obtain permission for the journey! This is absolutely bizarre. This order is bereft of any logic and reflects non application of mind," Manhas added
He said that the order in question indicates that there are some elements within the J&K administration who put people to unnecessary hardships and inconveniences in order to satiate their unfounded ego by taking such anti-people decisions.
Appealing the Lt Governor Sinha and Chief Secretary to personally intervene and get this order withdrawn, Manhas said they should take notice of the disappointment and resentment among the people caused due to this authoritarian order.
He suggested that for any reason, if travel permission is necessary for the passengers before embarking on Mughal Road, the powers should be conferred upon Tehsildars to issue such permissions without any delay so that the people are not made to suffer because of procedural wrangling.
The 86-km-long Mughal road, connecting Shopian in south Kashmir with Rajouri and Poonch in Jammu region remained closed during winter months due to heavy snowfall. However, the road was put through in June for trucks carrying fresh fruit from Kashmir to other side of the Pir-ki-Gali.
