Separate division for Ladakh: Omar promises two more for Chenab valley, Pir Panjal if voted to power
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Saturday reiterated its demand for creation of separate divisions for Pir Panjal and Chenab valley, saying the governor-led administration cannot adopt different yardsticks for different regions of the state.
He said several places in Pir Panjal and Chenab valley have been left in a lurch and people have to walk through the hills for days together as there is no road connectivity at all.
"There are areas in Pir Panjal and Chenab valley which remain cut-off from the outer world during major portions of winter," the PDP leader said.
Chowdhary said granting divisional status to Pir Panjal and Chenab valley would also address the growing crisis of joblessness in these areas.
