‘Illegal’ commercial structures coming up on Srinagar-Leh highway ‘Will visit the spots to ascertain facts: SDM

KANGAN: Commercial structures are coming up ‘illegally’ on Srinagar-Leh Highway much against the claims being made by the authorities that court directions are being implemented in letter and spirit and no body is permitted to raise any structure illegally.

Locals from Preng and Haripora villages of Kangan here in Central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district said that illegal shopping complexes are coming up along main road while authorities have turned a blind eye. They said prompt action is being initiated against locals when they construct any house for personal purpose while no action is being taken against those who raise structures for business purposes.

The locals told news agency Kashmir News Trust that work on several commercial complexes is going at full pace and that too in broad day light. “Top administrative and revenue officials pass through the road on daily basis and yet they don’t take note of these illegal constructions,” said a local.

The illegal shopping complexes according to locals are being raised in different areas including Preng and Haripora along Srinagar-Kargil highway.

When contacted Sub Divisional Magistrate, Hakim Tanveer said he will visit both Haripora and Preng to ascertain facts. (KNT)
