Jugal Kishore Sharma assures: No blind wall on Delhi-Amritsar-Katra Expressway at Kunjwani-Narwal.


Jugal Kishore Sharma, MP (Lok Sabha), reassured the public today that the construction of a blind wall between Kunjwani and Narwal, part of the Delhi-Amritsar-Katra Expressway, will not proceed as originally planned, addressing concerns raised by local residents. Accompanied by former MLA Devender Singh Rana, former MLC Choudhary Vikram Randhawa, and other BJP leaders, Sharma made this announcement during a press conference at the party’s headquarters in Trikuta Nagar. “We are grateful to Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari for respecting the wishes of the people of Jammu regarding the blind wall on the highway construction,” remarked Jugal Kishore Sharma.

Sharma also commended BJP national general secretary Tarun Chugh and party president Ravinder Raina for their proactive roles in resolving the issue. Emphasizing BJP’s commitment to developing a modernized Jammu, Sharma highlighted the government’s dedication to ensuring balanced development and beautification across the city, without causing division through construction projects.

He detailed how senior BJP leaders advocated for the community’s concerns directly with the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) and the Union Minister, stationed in Delhi to secure a favorable outcome. Devender Singh Rana further explained that Minister Nitin Gadkari responded positively to the genuine demands expressed by local leaders and associations, ensuring immediate action to prevent the construction of the blind wall.

Vikram Randhawa highlighted potential adverse effects the blind wall could have had on the local economy and daily life, underscoring concerns about traffic congestion and disruption to schools, hospitals, markets, and other essential facilities. The decision reflects a responsive approach to community feedback and underscores efforts to prioritize local interests in infrastructure development planning.
