Srinagar: Minister of State for Housing and Urban Development Department, Ms. Asiea Naqash today informed the House that earlier the land at Tulibal measuring 90 kanals was identified and developed with approach road and fenced by stone masonry/angel iron with barbed wiring and was used for garbage dumping upto 2005.

Replying to a question by Hajji Abdul Rashid, the Minister said that the land case became sub-judice after Secretary Kissan Behbood Committee, Saif-ud-din Lone filed petition before High Court restraining the Committee from its utilization as dumping site.

Naqash said that during 2014 work on the site was about to be re-started, but hurdles were created by some locals and employees of Irrigation and Flood Control Department also objected and the department could not proceed further in the matter.

The Minister said that the matter for settlement of land for dumping site stands discussed with MLA and District Administration. She said in the mean time the Deputy Commissioner Baramulla has directed SSP and SDM Sopore to ensure the dumping of garbage at Adipora Sopore till its permanent solution is worked out.
