CRPF camp comes up at Industrial Estate Lasipora
WAHEED UR REHMAN
Pulwama, Jan 15: Entrepreneurs of Industrial Estate Lasipora here in south Kashmir have expressed serious concern over paramilitary CRPF taking over 8-kanal of land there.
“The land was taken over by the CRPF last summer when the Quit Kashmir Movement was at peak,” said an entrepreneur.
He said that now a full fledged CRPF camp has come there and one full company of is putting up there. “Although being an industrial area the land in the Estate is only meant for industrial purposes and cannot be used for establishment of camps,” the entrepreneur added.
Other entrepreneurs seconded him. “The claim of the government that forces are being withdrawn and their number is being reduced is a hoax. Ground situation is contrary to the government claims,” they added.
The young entrepreneurs ridiculed government’s decision to establish a CRPF camp within the Industrial Estate. “There is hardly any law and order problem in the area. We don’t see any role of CRPF. At least five industrial units could have come up on the land taken over by the force,” they added.
They said a police station is a few meters away from the Industrial Estate while an army camp too is close to the Estate.
