Promote river navigation
WE THE Srinagarites
BAD and narrow roads coupled with growing number of vehicles have badly affected our lives as one has to waste considerable time in the gridlocks, which sometimes last for hours in this ignored City.
What is the immediate remedy to the problem? Well, putting magic wands of having quick wide roads to rest, one can only rely on the navigation through river Jhelum as the immediate and economical solution.
Not only can motor boats ferry passengers from one part of the City to the interiors of Shahr-e-Khaas at ease, the development will also be an added attraction for tourists and thereby improve the economy.
I think it’s high time for the government to take initiatives in this regard. And make a beginning. Because all what is required for this, are a few motor boats and of-course a will to let them sail.
