Block Congress Committee Jammu East held a protest near Purani Mandi Park, today, against Jammu administration, JMC, JDA and other authorities involved in Panchvakhtar Temple land issue and sought a high-level inquiry into the matter from the Lt. Governor of J&K.
The protest was held under the direction of Former Minister J&K Yogesh Sawhney General Secretary JKPCC in Charge District President Jammu Urban. While talking to JK Newspoint, the protestors alleged, “The BJP and various authorities like the JMC and JDA have been accused of attempts to grab Panchvakhtar land from their caretakers for commercial purposes to grant benefits to some private individuals. “The involved parties have orchestrated a plan to seize the temple land to construct a commercial complex and parking complex on the illegally acquired land, they added.
They further said, “The tender floated in regards to the land listed JMC as the owner of the land, while the same is denied by JMC to JDA. The DC had also questioned the release of the said tender without anyone’s knowledge. The protesters, therefore, demanded that a high-level inquiry in the matter is deployed so that the culprits can be punished.
They appealed to the Lt. Governor to conduct a high-level probe in the land scam and find out the real perpetrators behind the whole issue.
