The district Congress leaders also attacked the recent decision of cancelling the practice of Darbar Move without consulting all stakeholders alleging that it will adversely affect the markets and economies of both the cities; and highlighted the issue of increasing costs of Reta Bajri used in construction, urging the administration to look into the matter.Launching a scathing attack on the BJP leadership, Sawhney said that Jammu and Kashmir has been grappling with problem after problem because of the Centre’s policies and decisions. Jammu is being terribly ignored as various scams and mafias take over the city.He further attacked the UT Government for not consulting the affected stakeholders in Jammu and Srinagar before announcing the recent decision of the UT administration to end the 149 year old practice of Darbar Move, Sawhney said that it was a grave mistake.
