The discrimination with Jammu is never going to end whether it is a NC led government, or a PDP-BJP coalition which has equal partnership of the saffron party. In the latest instance it has been revealed that the prestigious Mubarak Mandi ropeway complex is not getting the nod from bureaucrats despite the Calcutta based company completing all formalities. The ropeway was conceived to connect Mubarak Mandi-and Mahamaya area across the river tawi, and the goal was to attract tourists from across the country who visit Mata Vaishno Devi shrine.
Even after an year, the neither drawings nor letter of credit which has to be issued to the Calcutta based company has been finalized. Sources are alleging that state tourism department which doesn’t want the project to see the light of the day under influence from Kashmir based leaders has delayed issue of formal certificate. Despite repeated attempts by the contractor the government has failed to deliver the goods.
