The Divisional Commissioner also listened to the issues of shopkeepers/stakeholders.

The newly rehabilitated 53 Shopkeepers demanded early start of all the counters in the new JDA parking to improve their business   with the increased footfall. They also demanded that the parking rates   be revised and reduced from Rs 3000 per month to Rs 1500 per month.

Meanwhile, the Div Com also took a round of the old bus stand and listened to the grievances of the shopkeepers.

The Div Com assured the shopkeepers, stakeholders that all their genuine demands would be considered and redressed on priority. He also issued instructions to the VC JDA to devise a plan to reduce the parking rates for local shopkeepers & issue monthly passes. VC JDA was told to issue fresh auction notice for the remaining shops in the facility which were not taken by bidders in the first instance.

He also asked the Additional CEO Jammu Smart City to initiate the bidding process for the start of e-rickshaw services from this parking facility to the market areas in old city.

The Div Com directed the district administration to hold joint meeting along with RTO Jammu, SSP Traffic and all stakeholders/bus-taxi operators for shifting of bus counters and make the JDA parking/Bus Stand functional at the earliest.

The Div Com also instructed the concerned officers to install signages, boards, directions to the shops, and highlight names of shops so that people do not face any inconvenience.

SP North and SP Traffic were told to ensure strict enforcement and ensure that vehicles are not wrongfully parked on the roads.

The Divisional Commissioner said that this multilevel parking with capacity of approx 1350 vehicles will lead to decongestion of the city area and we all need to ensure optimal utilisation of this mega asset.

But, on numerous requests by the police, the protestors didn’t leave the road then the police started dragging the protestors from the road.

On Saturday, the youngsters of Kathua protested against Kathua Police and blocked the road. According to the youngsters, the SHO has misbehaved with the Councillor. A police party tried to resolve the matter, but the protestors didn’t agree. The Councillor demanded that the SHO apologize for his actions in front of the media or be suspended.

While talking to the media, a Sarpanch said, “yesterday’s incident was very shameful. The people elected the Councillor, and the SHO dragged him like an offender. The locals were protesting only to demand their rights. They were not doing anything illegal. We criticize the incident and demand that the SHO should be suspended. If he treats the Councillor this way, then how he treats the common public”.
