Many shops on Apsara Road were also coming under the grip of this notice. This notice has been an issue in the city for the last one month in such a situation.

Chamber of Commerce and Industry Jammu put this issue in front of several other officials, including the Chief Secretary, while Deepak Gupta, President of Traders Federation Ware House-Nehru Market, also placed before the Union Minister of State for Urban Development Hardeep Singh Puri, who visited Jammu and He had also assured that this would not be allowed to happen.

After the heat of this issue, BJP has also swung into action and now state BJP President Ravindra Raina has announced that BJP will not allow bulldozers to run in Gandhi Nagar under any circumstances. Raina said that he was with the shopkeepers and no one would have to leave ten feet of space in Gandhi Nagar.
