Congress Sewa Dal criticizes establishment of toll plaza
9/22/2019 9:43:45 PM
Early Times Report
Vijaypur, Sept 22: Congress Sewa Dal has criticized the establishment of toll plaza at Sarore.
Addressing media persons, District president Raj Kumar Bhagat castigated the Union Transport Minister regarding the issuance of contract of toll plaza without adopting the due course of procedure laid down for toll plaza.
In the year 2013-14, the toll plaza was to be installed at Sarore Adda and then the workers of BJP had opposed the same and now they are mum due to the reason BJP Govt. in centre and J&K UT is under Governor Rule, Bhagat rued, adding, "a few months ago there was a rumor that toll plaza is to be constructed at Thandi Khui NH1 but now the construction work of toll plaza is in progress between Patli Morh and Sarore Adda on NH1.
He asks the NH1 authority, whether there is provision that toll plaza can be installed at any place on NH1. At one hand the NH1 is not completed and the NH authority is not providing services as per norms. He further told that Samba to Jammu is thick/dense traffic area and due to the huge traffic it becomes the accidental prone area. The NH1 authority has not taken the preventive steps regarding this concern, the NH1 authority has not installed the equipments which may help to enforce the traffic rules and the violator be punished.
Many accidental prone places are yet without sign/cautions symbols. He said the people are not against the traffic rules and ready to pay the tax but the place which has been proposed is fall within area of high dense traffic area and it will become the jam prone area, he said, adding, the two industrial growth centers at Bari Brahmana and Samba, AIIMS hospital is under construction, central university also existed within the range of this toll plaza. We the people of District Samba urged the Union Government of India as well as Governor to issue the directions to NH1 authorities to install the equipments which automatically deduct the tax at appropriate place as per the norms of toll plaza.
It is pertinent to mention here that a toll plaza in Kathua District is already in function which is about 50 Km from the proposed place which is glaring injustice with the people of Jammu region. He further urged the Government as well as NH1 authority to install the toll plaza at Kunjawani Chowk or Purmandal Morh or Jatwal keeping in the view of feasibility and accessibility of public in general. Otherwise the workers of Sewa Dal shall be compelled to launch agitation at large and the NH1 Authority as well as Government shall be responsible of all risk and loss.
