Early Times Report
KUPWARA, Sept 19: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday sought an end to the hostilities between India and Pakistan on the borders, saying it is the people of the state who bear the brunt of the skirmishes.
CM while addressing a public meeting at Tangdar sector near the Line of Control (LoC) in Karnah area of north Kashmir's Kupwara district, said the recent skirmishes along the border area has led many people to migrate.
"I appeal the leadership of both the countries to work for maintaining peace on the borders. The people of the state have been the worst victims of this hostility which has led to their killing, dislocations and damages to the property on both the sides," she said.
She said peace in the state and between the two South Asian countries holds key to the progress and development of the region.
"It is very unfortunate that when people should have been demanding facilities of schools, hospitals, playfields and hospitals, they are seeking construction of bunkers to save them from firepower.
It is a point to ponder what has the people achieved from the hostility of 70 years," she maintained.
Flagging friendship between India and Pakistan as the only way forward, the chief minister said with peace and cooperation new vistas of progress and development for the people could be opened.
"Given its picturesque beauty, Teetwal and Tanghdar areas could be developed as major tourist spots. This would give the local economy a major fillip like it has given to Ladakh tourism," she said.
The chief minister while responding to the local demands, said she has already taken up with the Centre the construction of tunnel on the Sadhna pass so that connectivity between Kupwara and Tanghdar regions is kept open throughout the year.
She said the state government has recommended to the Centre grant of scheduled tribe status to members of the Pahari community and she would again take up the matter with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Earlier the Chief Minister laid the foundation of 15 kilometre long Tanghdar to Gabra road via Hajitara which would be constructed in two years.
The road project would cost Rs. 15 crore and work on it has already been started, she was informed on the occasion.
Mehbooba Mufti also laid the foundation of Dhani-Taad road. The 9.5 kilometre road would be constructed at a cost of Rs. 13.50 crore and this too would be completed within a period of two years.
