Fine-tune SOP for movement of forces convoys: Tarigami to Govt

Srinagar, Mar 16 : CPI (M) leader Muhammad Yousuf Tarigami Saturday said restrictions on movement of private vehicles during the movement of security forces convoys on highway is giving tough time to the commuters and causing heavy traffic jams.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

“The commuters who travel towards their respective workplaces have to wait for a long duration till the convoy passes the area,” Tarigami said in a statement.

He said patients, who have to reach to the hospitals for treatment, are the worst suffers while students, office goers and businessmen too have to bear the brunt of traffic restrictions. “The security concerns are to be taken into consideration, but at the same time it should not be problematic for common people. Ambulances and vehicles carrying patients must be given free passage even during the movement of convoys. A patient can’t wait for half-an-hour as in some cases it can prove disastrous,” he said.

Similarly, the convoy movement timings must be devised so as there is no inconvenience to general public, he said, adding that there is a need to fine-tune and polishing the standard operating procedure (SOP) for the movement of security forces convoys so as there is no clash with the movement of civilian traffic.

“The timing of the security forces’ convoy could be fixed such that it is different than the timing when highways and other roads witness peak civilian traffic movement,” he said, adding that “a letter in this regard has already been submitted to the Governor on 12-03-2019.”
