: Former Minister and senior National Conference leader Syed Mushtaq Ahmed Bukhari has demanded the opening of more travel routes across the LoC in the twin border districts of Poonch and Rajouri as these have the highest number of divided families in the State. Welcoming the decision of the Government to make the bus service via Chakkan Da Bagh in Poonch weekly, Bukhari called for more proactive involvement of people from both sides of LoC through domestic and trade ties. He said that the opening of trade routes across the border would usher a new era of progress in Poonch – Rajouri making it a great Common Building Measure for the future.
