Udhampur, June 24: The Army has strongly condemned the torching of vehicle belonging to the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) on the Srinagar – Jammu highway near Wanpoh in Khundwani area of Kulgam yesterday.
The BRO through its sustained and relentless efforts not only constructs roads and infrastructure in difficult terrain and inhospitable weather conditions of the State but also ensures road connectivity by clearing landslides during rains and snow during the winters. The organisation was also in the forefront of massive rescue and relief operations undertaken by the Army in the floods of 2014 and has played a significant role in the rebuilding of assets and infrastructure across the State.
The yesterday’s miscreant action is by the inimical elements who are working against the interests of the Awam and the Development of the State. Such actions will hamper the development work in the State and make the task of BRO of road construction and other development works for the people of the State, more difficult.
Meanwhile, the Police and the Army are further investigating the matter.
