Mughal Road to be made all-weather: Mufti

Kotranka (Rajouri): Emphasizing the holistic development of all the regions by echoing the slogan of Sabka Saath Sabka Vikaas, Sayeed said the Coalition Government will strive to develop Mughal Road as an all-weather alternate highway. 

“The declaration of Mughal Road as alternate National Highway is in the Agenda of the Alliance of the Coalition Government,” he said and added that efforts are on to throw it open in the next couple of days.

The Chief Minister said that since the four-lanning of the Jammu- Srinagar National Highway will take some time, the Government will immediately develop and use Mughal Road as an alternate highway.

The construction on the Mughal Road, which had started during the PDP-led Government in 2004, connects Poonch and Rajouri districts with Shopian district in the Kashmir valley.

Unveiling his plans for making J&K an elite eco-tourist destination, Mufti Sayeed said the Government will embark on a special promotional campaign to project nature and pilgrim tourism potential of the region.

On the issue of rising unemployment in the State, Mufti Sayeed said the new Government will fast-track filling up of all the posts in State and District cadre in a fair and transparent manner where merit and competence of the aspirants will be the only yardstick for selection.
