Khonmoh observes strike
Srinagar: The residents of Khonmoh on Wednesday observed a strike against the alleged transfer of hundreds of Kanals of private land to armed forces for establishment of a cantonment.
In a statement, Public Welfare Trust said the armed forces were allegedly forcibly acquiring 1000 Kanals of land for creating cantonment and oil depot- a move unacceptable to the residents. The PWT said Khonmoh was already facing shortage of land for residential construction as it was over crowded by small scale industries SIDCO and cement factories.
They appealed to the Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah to intervene in the matter.
