ARTO Shopian, Er. Abdul Majid, on Tuesday, assured that all possible steps would be taken for smooth functioning of traffic in the district.
Majid said that as petroleum prices were being hiked all across the globe, the increase in different fares was obvious. However, he added that the rates were fixed by following a proper procedure.
In a briefing, he highlighted some of the major steps taken for road safety included widening of areas, which were prone to accidents at various places. He said that many programmes were organized to spread awareness.
Reacting to a complaint regarding his unavailability in the office, he said that he has additional charge of Kulgam district. Hence, he is available in Shopian office for only three days in a week and requested people to visit on the scheduled days only.
