JAMMU, May 18: Member Legislative Assembly (MLA) Chenani Dina Nath Bhagat today laid the foundation of two link roads from Mantalai to Ghomshadu and Barkunda to Kharwa in Chenani constituency.
The 10 kilometer and 5.8 kilometers link roads would be constructed under PMGSY at an estimated cost of Rs 5.94 crore and Rs 2.49 crore respectively. The roads would provide connectivity to over dozens of villages of the area.
Speaking on the occasion, the MLA said that the Government is committed to strengthen road connectivity in rural areas, besides regular power and water supply for the convenience of people.
Hailing the State and Union Governments for sanctioning adequate funds under PMGSY and other schemes for construction of roads in Chenani constituency, Bhagat said it is his mission to provide road connectivity to those areas of constituency which are still without road links. He said that the process of identification of areas without road links has been initiated and work on such roads would be started soon.
