Kupwara: Jammu and Kashmir Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Ravinder Raina Thursday said that his party was committed to develop the far-off and border areas. He said till now “no one has talked about construction of a tunnel at Sadhna Top and it is the BJP which has made it possible”.

Raina said this while addressing a public gathering at border tehsil Karnah.

Raina is on a three day visit to frontier tehsil Karnah. He said that people of Karnah had been “deprived by the three political parties - National Conference (NC), Congress and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)- in terms of constructing a tunnel at Sadhna Top”. “Leave aside the construction of tunnel, the roads in Karnah are in shambles, all because of the previous regimes,” said Raina.

“When I was young I used to listen on radio the demand of Karnah people for construction of a tunnel at Sadhna Top but after the passage of several decades people were deprived of the same here, but the wait is over now. Karnah people would witness a tunnel very soon with the efforts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” Raina added.

“By the end of March 2022, the project report of the tunnel would be made and soon after that construction will start. An amount of Rs 1300 crore is being spent on this project,” Raina said.
