Book Officials Who Fail to Keep Highway Operational: NH44

JAN 13: Apni Party President Syed Mohammed Altaf Bukhari today urged the Govt to book officials responsible for maintaining Jammu-Srinagar National Highway and contractors for their failure to keep the highway open for vehicular traffic.

Bukhari also demanded probe into the matter to expose the nexus between officials and contractors on Jammu-Srinagar National Highway which has posed serious threat to the lives of the people as well as the environment.

“The important lifeline to Kashmir has been closed for many days and the officials have failed to open it even today. The contractors have been working on the highway in an unscientific manner causing landslides and risking the lives of commuters,” said Altaf Bukhari.

Bukhari was speaking at a one day function organized by Apni Party in Jammu to facilitate the candidates who contested DDC elections in Jammu region.

Around 90 candidates were facilitated by Party President Altaf Bukhari to encourage them so that they can work among the people.
