 UDHAMPUR, SEPTEMBER 25: Vice Chairperson District Development Council (DDC) Udhampur Juhi Manhas Pathania met several public delegations to listen to their demands and issues.

 Interacting with a deputation hailing from the Dudu-Basantgarh area led by the local PRIs, specially Pinki Devi DDC Latti Marothi, underscored  the need to upgrade Ramnagar to Basant garh to Dudu to Chenani Roads on mission mode.

She urged for the utilization of the available funds under CRF I/II, PMGSY Upgradation and PWD and noted that the lackadaisical approach of the contractor agencies is seriously impairing vehicle movement. She also said an alternative road from Chakal to Katorni to Chakka shall also be constructed to address the snow-related complicacies at Trungliyan.

She also called for action against defaulting contractor firms and ensuring that the sanctioned money is utilized diligently. She also called for bracing up of legal teams as two public utility projects have been stalled due to cases pending in the High Court. She informed that Ramnagar to Chatrari CRF-I road (costing Rs 18 cr) & CRF – II (Costing Rs 10 crores), stand sanctioned and major part of works too executed on spot. Referring to Ramnagar Dudu (Chatrari to Majouri) road(costing Rs 9.25 cr) and Dudu to Keya road (costing Rs 9.71 cr), she said  works on these projects are in progress but there is a need for prompt execution   with full focus on quality and time bound completion. She regretted that other two roads on the axis, Sira More to Shivgali (Rs 51 cr approx) and Shiv Gali to Basantgarh road (Rs 5.33 cr) have been held up in court litigations. She called upon the district administration and legal agencies for earliest resolution of the issues and starting of the works on these roads.
