STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Urging the Governor Satya Pal Malik to devise some alternate mechanism for resolving stalemate banning of civilian traffic on National Highway on Sundays and Wednesdays, which have been fixed exclusively for Army movement, the Jammu Province People Forum (JPPF) suggested for accommodating emergency-ridden civil passengers by allowing them to use the National Highway, when the Army convoy crosses over and reaches fixed transit points safely. While addressing a meeting here, Pavittar Singh Bhardwaj, JPPF President expressed anxiety over the public hue and cry on the issue. “No doubt, the Army should be provided National Highway exclusively for movement of their convoys, but there must be some safe intervals available in between, which could be used for movement of civilian traffic. These should be provided to accommodate at least the emergency-ridden civilian vehicles, if Government has decided to continue the ban further,” he said. Speaking further about problems to be discussed with the Governor, the President JPPF complained that repeated requests for granting an audience by the Governor have not succeeded till date and same is pending with the office of Governor for needful. The JPPF, once again, requested for an appointment with the Governor as early as possible to discuss salient issues and problems being faced by Jammu people.
