In a first, Gurez-Bandipora road opens in April 2nd week, will help in smooth polls say officials
Srinagar: The Gurez-Bandipora road has been thrown open for one way vehicular movement just a day ahead of polls in the region.
“This is for the first time that despite of record high snowfall in this winter the Bandipur Gurez road has been thrown open in second week of April itself. Its a great achievement for us,” Ltcol APS Khaira, Oc 56 RCC said.
Khaira said that they worked day and night in extreme weather conditions for opening of Razdhan Pass.
” This has not only facilitated the conduct of General elections in Gurez and Tulail valleys but also helped the stranded local populace by connecting them with mainland,” he said.
Gurez-Bandipora road remains closed for four months due to heavy snowfall in winter which cuts off Gurez’s arterial connectivity with the rest of world.
