Jammu: Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has said that the construction of civilian houses adjacent to Army camps “with permission” from authorities is a problem.
“Civil constructions are taking place near the boundary walls (of Army camps across the country) and it is getting difficult to remove these constructions because these are taking place with permission,” she told reporters yesterday.
“I am studying the scenario in the entire country and will definitely come out with a solution.”
Sitharaman was in Jammu yesterday to visit the people injured in Saturday’s attack on an Army camp in Sunjuwan by militants. PTI
