Says Jmu-Sgr highway still under construction

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Wednesday urged the incumbent governor administration to suspend levying of toll tax on Srinagar –Jammu highway at Charsoo toll plaza near Awantipora.
A party statement said that the highway is “still incomplete with some bridges, still under construction activity in Kashmir has hit its lowest ebb in the last four years and the decision of levying in exorbitant toll tax will inadvertently put the people to duress”.
Party spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar expressed dismay over the decision.
“Notwithstanding the low economic activity in the valley”, Dar said the construction of Jammu -Srinagar highway was still going on.
He said the railway pass bridges and many lanes and some single lane bridges “are still not complete”.
“It is therefore unjust and unfair to levy taxes on people when the highway is not fully functional,” Dar said.
He asked the state government to “do an immediate review” of the rates that are being levied on different vehicles at the newly inaugurated toll plaza.
“We therefore urge the governor administration to defer imposing toll tax,” he added.
