Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 19: In a Public Interest Litigation filed by Inderjeet Khajuria President All Jammu Hotels and Lodges Association Jammu espousing public issues including creation of Artificial Lake in River Tawi and Gandola Project from Mubarakh Mandi to Bahu Fort, a Division Bench of State High Court Comprising Chief Justice Badar Durrez Ahmed and Justice Ali Mohammad Magrey after hearing Sr. Adv BS Salathia for the PIL whereas Deputy RS Jamwal and GA AH Bhat for the State, granted two days to tourism department to respond to the query. Division Bench also directed to file the status with regard to Artificial Lake on Tawi before next date of hearing.
In the PIL, petitioner submitted that the State Government has been claiming to take all possible measures to make Jammu City a place of tourist attraction. Many efforts are claimed to have been made to improvise and change the landscape of Jammu City into an attractive one but to no avail.
That with the train reaching Katra, the business and the importance of Jammu as a city/destination for tourists has gone to a new low, and the pilgrims/tourists have been losing interest in Jammu City altogether.
The petitioner feels humbled to sustain this Public Interest Litigation Petition with a view to mandate upon the respondents to explain reasons for negligence on their part in supervising the enforcement of heritage protection laws and for turning a blind eye to illegal constructions/encroachments that are mushrooming in the banks of River Tawi which because of being prone to floods, must be population free. Unfortunately, the land grabbers in connivance with the concerned authorities succeeded in causing encroachment even on these areas of State/JDA lands.
