They said that a false impression is being generated in Jammu that there has been a great developmental push in Kashmir region and vice versa in Kashmir region regarding Jammu which situation is dismal in both the regions.
While Jambu Zoo, River front project, Four laning of Jammu-Akhnoor road, Artificial Lake project, Jammu Gondola project, Jammu-Srinagar Highway project, Janipur-Amphalla road projects and numerous others are in limbo, they said, no headway has been made in Kashmir on various development projects of utmost importance.
