However, the official delayed the process of construction even as the project has been sanctioned.“We will not tolerate any attempt to shift Degree College out of Kotranka at any cost. People will come on roads in case any such mischievous attempt is made. There are apprehensions among the people that the construction of college is delayed to shift the actual venue of the college to some other place and this kind of decision will attract anger,” he said.He said that Kotranka comprises 40 Panchayats and it is far away from Rajouri district.
