SRINAGAR, June 12: Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) leader Farooq Andrabi called on divisional commissioner Kashmir Pandurang K. Pole, seeking his intervention for transfer of land to the higher education department for establishment of government Degree College at Chadoora in district Budgam.
In a statement issued here, Andrabi apprised the divisional commissioner that a patch of land measuring 25 Kanals has already been identified but is yet to be handed over to the department of higher education for the purpose of setting up a much needed degree college at Chadoora.
“I requested the worthy divisional commissioner that the land measuring 25 Kanals has already been identified by the revenue department and municipal committee Chadoora but due to delayed formalities of handing over the land to the higher education department, the whole process of construction of this college is halted,” Andrabi added.
During the meeting, the JKAP leader also raised the issue of pending construction of an approved bus terminal at Chadoora. “I also apprised the worthy divisional commissioner that the work on the bus terminal at Chadoora is yet to be started despite a patch of land measuring around 35 Kanals identified by the concerned revenue department and municipal committee Chadoora. Even the detailed project report for this bus terminal has already been submitted to the government,” Andrabi briefed the divisional commissioner.
Andrabi said that thousands of students of Chadoora and its adjoining catchment areas are suffering for want of a degree college in their vicinity. “The student community is subject to immense difficulties as the work on the allotted college is yet to be started,” he added.
Assuring the JKAP leader that the construction work on both prestigious projects in Chadoora will be started very soon the divisional commissioner Kashmir issued the necessary orders in this direction.
