Chamba, January 13

The Chamba Jan Hit Sangathan has sought the shifting of the newly constructed bus stand from Tatwani, saying it was an unsafe site. The members want it to be shifted to a safer place. They said the Bharmour zero point was the most suitable location.

In a press note issued here, Sangathan convener Shadi Lal Sharma and president Kishore Baroo said prior to the construction of the new bus stand building, a zero point had already been identified and selected for the construction of the bus stand, but due to certain political reasons, the bus stand was constructed at Tatwani in the town.

The sangathan office-bearers said the bus stand site at Tatwani was located on the banks of the Ravi. It is a risky site, as the area could easily get flooded. They added the sangathan had objected to the move even at the time of construction.

They urged the state government to reconsider their demand in the interest of public safety.
