Jammu Tawi, January 1
Thathri Development Front (TDF)) today urged the state government to Upgrade Sub-Division Thathri to the Status of District during the coming Assembly Session.
In a press statement, The front said, “Erstwhile Thathri Tehsil, which is now a Sub-Division deserves to be a District on the basis of all those norms which were applied while Kishtwar & Ramban Tehsils were upgraded to the status of District. These were central places & each comprised of three Tehsils including Tehsil Kishtwar & Tehsil Ramban. “Sub-Division Thathri, (Erstwhile Thathri Tehsil) at present comprises of Four Tehsils instead three– Thathri, Phagsoo, Kahara & Chirala. If Bhela Niabat which is on card to be upgraded, The Sub-Division Thathri will be having Five Tehsils- two more than the existing norms, Moreover it is a central place for all the other 4 Tehsils, they added. The Front also demanded separate Assembly Constituency & a separate tourism Authority for Sub-Division Thathri as it now comprises of 5 Tehsils and all the existing Districts & Assembly Constituencies in the state have hardly 2 or 3 Tehsils.
