Srinagar, Dec 25 (JKYouth) BDC (Block Development Chairperson) Gurez demands sanction of Gurez-Bandipora Road Tunnel.
While talking to JKYouth reporter Fameeda Begum raised many issues being faced by the people of Gurez, Tulail, and Bagtore.
Gurez is famous for its flora and fauna, people of this area usually remain dependent on their own agricultural products.
Gurez remains cut from the rest of the world for more than 6 months in the winter as heavy snowfall and glaciers don’t allow anyone to pass 86 KMs long-distance through Razdhan Pass from Gurez to Bandipora she said.
Jammu and Kashmir Administration needs to come forward and find and better solution for the miseries being faced by people of Gurez,
people here have been demanding a Road Tunnel for very long,
I request both the Center government and J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha to intervene and sanction a Road Tunnel she added.
BDC over Better Electricity schedule for People surviving in Gurez
In this 21st Century, our People of Gurez are receiving only 4-5 hours of electricity through Generators,
at the same time the government has built a 330MW KishanGanga Hydroelectric Plant and
made it functional on 19 May 2018 but still, the people of Gurez are deprived of a single percent of this Hydroelectric plant she said,
Gurez must be given at least 2-3 MWs of share from this plant.
BDC Fameeda said with these 2-3 MW’s of electricity, miseries will end to some extent and
people will stop winter migrations from Gurez to others cities if Jammu and Kashmir.
BDC Gurez demands
The cost of the helicopter ticket has been kept at highly subsidized rates
at Rs 3,000 per person from Srinagar airport and at Rs 2,000 from Bandipora.
which is very high, majority of people in Gurez are daily wagers and it becomes almost impossible for them to afford air-tickets for their travel.
Furthermore, Government needs to re-think and down the air-fare for the good sake of people of Gurez.
Tourism needs to be given priority, people are ready to work with the administration and to change
the future of their motherland but at the same time government needs to come forward and
solve these important issues being faced by people of Gurez, Tulail, and Bagtore.
