State Times NewsJAMMU: Sham Lal Langer, Convenor of BJP’s Industries and Trader Cell J&K, on Tuesday urged the Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha to give directions to concerned officers of the executing agencies to synergise their efforts and complete the work on multi-level car parking-cum-commercial complex project at general bus stand so that the same doesn’t misses the October deadline.In a statement issued today, Sham Lal Langer said that the multi-level car parking-cum-commercial complex project has become proverbial white elephant for the government after it missed several launch dates in the past and was marred by cost escalation besides proving to be eye sore for the business community which has been affected by the unfounded delay in the completion of this project.Sham Lal said that the completion of this project in stipulated time frame is imperative for two basic reasons, the first one is the cost escalation on account of inflation and labourers’ dearth and the second one is the business loss of crores of rupees to those who have their establishments in the vicinity as the construction work has severely hampered their day to day working and even it has forced some of the businessmen to temporarily shift their shops to other places for continuing their daily chores related to their trade.Citing media reports and the statements made by the officials visiting the site recently, Sham Lal said that the work on this prestigious project is almost done and it can be operationalised well within the stipulated date if the administration gives its nod.He said that lingering on this project will serve no purpose rather it will give an impression that government is indifferent with regard to matters concerning Jammu, which is not at all a good sign. He demanded commissioning of this project as soon as possible to provide succor to affected business community and also general public which is in dilemma over dearth of parking space in the Jammu City and is also waiting for the moment when this state of art shopping arcade with modern parking facility will see the light of the day.Sham urged the Lt Governor Manoj Sinha to intervene and ensure opening of this facility in October itself to give Diwali bonanza to Jammuites as they are eagerly waiting to hear some good news on fulfillment of Jammu’s developmental aspirations and this is the one which holds special significance in their minds and hearts.
