Poonch Civil Society Seeks re-location of Wine shops

A meeting of civil society of Poonch was organized under the chairmanship of Farooq Misbah Imam, Jamia Masjid Poonch on Saturday. In the meeting it was demanded that all wine shops/bars on Poonch Jammu Highway must be closed down.
It was also pointed out that some such wine shops/bars have been closed down or shifted from the highway as per Government order but it is strange that a bar housed in Anand Hotel Poonch still exists on the Poonch -Rawalakote Highway/Road which is highly objectionable. The delegation under guidance of S Kamaljeet Singh met with the District Magistrate/ District Development Commissioner Poonch in this connection and handed over him a memorandum enumerating their objections against the said bar. It was apprised of that the bar in Anand Hotel is merely three meters away from bus stand Poonch and is near rather adjacent to Dashnamia Akhara Poonch, Degree College Poonch and Industrial Estate Poonch besides Poonch Fort. nThe position worsens when Budha Amarnath Yatra starts, the Yatris from every nook and corner of the country sometimes face a embarrassing situation when hooligans create fuss in their way, on the road. The District Magistrate/ District Dev Commissioner Poonch assured the members of delegation that he will take necessary steps in this connection.
Sayyed Taj Hussain Shah, President Bar Association Poonh, Taj Mir Congress Leader, Mohd Zaman Advocate, Mohd Iqbal, Basant Ram, President Dashnamia Akhara Poonch, Nishu Sharma, Haji Nazir Magri,Harbans Singh, Thakur Kamal Kishore Charak, Manjeet Singh, Mashooq Khan, Haji Hameed were the among members of delegation.
