Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, July 25: A delegation from Tehsil Suchetgarh called on former minister and State NCP president Thakur Randhir Singh, here today and presented him a representation to set up Tehsil headquarters at Suchetgarh road adjoining R S Pura.
The delegation was led by Ch Dev Raj, chairman NCP Kissan Sabha J&K State and president Basmati Rice Growers Association R S Pura alongwith Thakur Yograj Singh Charak, State secretary NCP.
Highlighting the significance of Suchetgarh, Ch Dev Raj said that Suchetgarh is historical place rather international and it could become like Atarri border at Amritsar if Indo-Pakistan relations improve. Even at present, everyday more than 400 people from India and Pakistan meet each other in the presence of BSF and Pakistan Rangers, he added.
At present the headquarter of new Tehsil has been temporarily located at Chakroi which is not a safe place and is hardly 1.5 km from international border which remains generally under fire while there is no proper road connectivity, Dev Raj explained and claimed that more than 27 Sarpanches out of 31, 75 Lambardars out of 100   are in favour of Tehsil Headquarters at Suchetgarh adjoining R S Pura.
Thakur Randhir Singh, while addressing the delegation, said that it was unfortunate that the Suchetgarh tehsil headquarter was temporarily working at isolated village Chakroi because of it being native village of the local MLA.  He appealed to the Chief Minister and Revenue Minister to intervene into the matter for interest of public and because of the importance of Suchetgarh as a historical, tourist place.
Other members of the delegation, included Sarpanch Harnam Singh, Sarpanch Arjun Singh, Sarpanch Swaran Lal Bhagat, Sarpanch Garu Ram Bhagat, Lambardar Sarwan Kumar, Ch Krishan Lal and Ashok Randhawa.
