Jammu: The Aam Adami Party (AAP) held a protest here on Monday, demanding that toll plazas on the Jammu-Pathankote highway be removed, officials said.
AAP leader Advocate Manish Chopra along with 200 activists and lawyers took out a protest rally at the Sarore toll plaza, they said.
“The toll plazas in Jammu and Kashmir should be removed. There are no toll plazas in Union Territories. Jammu and Kashmir should either be given back the status of state or toll plazas should be removed,” Chopra told the reporters.According to the policy of setting up of toll plaza by the Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, it should be erected after every 60 kilometres, he said.”Two toll plazas have been set up in a span of less than six kilometres, which is illegal. This should be removed,” the AAP leader said.Hitting out at the BJP for “failure on all fronts” in Jammu and Kashmir, the AAP leaders asked the travellers not to pay toll at the plaza.As a mark of protest, the demonstrators presented flowers to the toll plaza staff and police personnel during the rally.
