Srinagar: With regard to contentious Sainik Colony issue, senior Congress party leader and former Minister Taj Mohiuddin Monday said that government has created confusion as according to him, in public the government talks in a different tone while in closed corridors it does something different.
In public the PDP led government claims that there is no proposal for establishing a Sainik Colony for retired defence personnel in Kashmir Valley but on ground the reality is something different. The official document clearly reveals that the Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir, had agreed to allotment of 173 kanals of land on payment in the Old Airfield Area. The Rajya Sainik Board has revised the requisition of land to 350 kanals and a revised proposal has been forwarded to the Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir and State Home Department. Whom shall people believe, the hollow and misleading statements of PDP or the official documents, Taj Mohiuddin said.
