Srinagar, Oct 17 (UNI) The security forces stationed at the famous Verinag Garden in south Kashmir will be relocated, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said.
The Chief Minister said the security forces will be shifted to the newly-constructed accommodation comprising four double storey barracks, mess and administrative block which is about 1.5 km away from the Garden.
He said the relocation would be started today and completed within a fortnight.
The Chief Minister said certain forces active in the Strife-torn State want the people of the state to remain economically deprived so that they could make them dance to their tunes.
He said insurgency has pushed back the developmental works in the state by several decades.
Cautioning the people against votebank politics, Mr Azad said the public representatives were elected to serve the people and not to make money or assets.
''I believed in work and not in hoodwinking people through false and unachievable dreams,'' Mr Azad said.
He said during the last two years, his government had taken up construction of schools, hospitals, power and roads across the state.
He exuded confidence that before the assembly elections a new chapter of development would be written in the history of Jammu and Kashmir.
