Delay in funds release has hampered dev works: Tarigami

CPI (M) leader Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami Friday said that delay in the release of funds has hampered development works in the state.

Tarigami in a statement said that due to limited working season in Kashmir, Ladakh and winter zone of Jammu region, any further delay will hamper the developmental activities in the state.

He said that under district Capex Budget no funds have been released during current financial year till date while a meagre amount has been released understate sector.

“Projects under Central Road Funding (CRF) were sent to the Center government for approval last year. Though some works under CRF have been approved in some pockets, in Kashmir, not even a single road has been sanctioned under this scheme,” the statement said.
