SRINAGAR — The Jammu and Kashmir administration has said that the government forces stationed at Tattoo Ground in Batamaloo area of Srinagar are yet to vacate the area despite being provided alternate land.
The Additional Commissioner Kashmir, Qazi Sarwar, in a meeting held last week said that irrespective of the fact that the army has been provided alternate land, forces stationed at Tattoo Ground are yet to vacate the place.
“In this regard, the Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) Srinagar will provide the information within seven days,” Sarwar said.
Meanwhile, the concerned authorities in the meeting while stating the development of Soura Anchar and Foreshore Road said, “The custodian land available at Bohlachipora can be immediately developed and utilized for parking of vehicles.”
Sarwar in this regard asked the Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) Commissioner to get the Detailed Project Report (DPR) prepared at the earliest.
“Moreover, the survey shall also be done by the Road and Building (RnB) Department for exploring the possibility for the development of road on the banks of Anchar Lake, behind the Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS), on the lines of the foreshore road on Dal Lake,” he said. “It will pave way for protecting Anchar Lake against encroachment and also will provide an alternate road for the commuters.”
