If one goes by the Defence minister’s Nirmala Sitharaman directive all closed roads in the cantonments will be reopened immediately. This will prove a boon for devotees visiting the famous camp Hanuman mandir in cantonment area as the road is closed and people have to walk more than 2 kms to reach the temple.
It will also help residents of the area near Sardarnagar who have to take a long road to reach their place. The direct road has been closed since long and the matter has reached court also.
The minister had a meeting with Members of Parliament and elected Vice Presidents of all 62 Cantonment Boards on the issues relating to Cantonments. It was decided that all closed roads in the Cantonments will be reopened immediately.
The issue of closure of individual roads will be reviewed de novo, in conformity with the provisions as laid down, and any closure of roads to be undertaken, will be done only after following the due procedure. A simplified detailed SOP will shortly be issued to jointly address the needs of the local public and the military establishment, a release by defence PRO said.
