‘Whose stupid idea is this?’, asks Omar as concrete pavement replaces Shankaracharya trekking trail

SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah has reacted sharply to a decision to turn famous trekking route in Srinagar into a concrete path.
Retweeting an article and photo of the trekking trail on Shankaracharya hill being concretised, reportedly by the J&K government’s forest department, the J&K National Conference chief has asked pointedly, “Whose stupid idea is this?”
“Whose stupid idea is this? We already have a motorable road that goes all the way up to the base of the stairs. @jandkgovernor should reverse this order, restore the trekking path & find out who was responsible for this,” Omar tweeted.
