BJP presents another gift to Jammuites

Early Times Report

Jammu, Apr 1: The self proclaimed champions of Jammu cause have presented another gift to Jammuites in the form of new toll plaza at Lakhanpur after the Sarore toll plaza and now the locals of the respective areas have not been exempted for the user fee.
When the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) was in opposition, its state leaders had strongly opposed the establishment of tool plaza at Sarore and had staged protest demonstration to uproot the same but when it was in power at Centre its state leaders remained silent, when a new tool plaza was established at Sarore. When the move was squarely opposed in Jammu, the state president of BJP had claimed on record that he had written a letter to Union Minister Nitin Gadkari for lifting of toll plaza.
He had also argued that in a Union Territory like Chandigarh, Pondichery, toll plazas were not established as it fall directly under Union rule. “The decision to start collection of toll at Sarore was taken in haste, so the state BJP leadership has written to Union for removal of same”, the state president had said on record before media, but there was no taker of his letter and it proved to be another jumla.
Now when the entire nation is confined to their houses to fight Corona pandemic, the BJP government came up with another gift to Jammuites by introducing clandestinely another user-fee at toll plaza near Lakhanpur in district Kathua.
Moreover, the locals non-commercial vehicle owners residing within the distance of 20 kilometres from the toll plazas, who were earlier exempted the user-fee at respective toll plazas, have to pay Rs. 280 to get a monthly pass, which would be subject to revision. It means the user fee for locals would also increased every year, similar to the enhancement of user-fee to huge level for local matador operators at Sarore toll plaza.
“Jammuites have been overburdened with the imposition of three toll plazas at a distance of only around 120 kilometres. Is it the gift BJP is giving to the Jammuites for whole heartedly supporting the decision of Union since decades”, a local said, adding that the Union was not listening the state leadership of BJP, due to reasons best known to them.
