Mughal Road tunnel announcement brings cheer to residents in J&K’s Shopian


Union minister Nitin Gadkari’s announcement that a tunnel would be built at Peer Ki Gali on Mughal Road has brought cheer to the residents of Jammu and Kashmir’s Shopian.

Talking to reporters earlier this month, Gadkari had shared the details of the Rs 5,000-crore project to make Mughal Road and an all-weather road connecting Poonch and Rajouri districts in the Jammu region to Shopian in the Kashmir valley.

Shopian’s residents feel the project will open up employment avenues for youngsters.
