Kashmir: Stating that Congress Party is watching the indifferent attitude of ruling dispensation towards the well being and genuine concerns of poor as well as backward classes in the State, the J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President Ghulam Ahmad Mir today hit out at PDP-BJP coalition government in state for adopting lackadaisical attitude towards the people living in far off places.
He said that people are being denied their basic rights in order to give undue benefit to blue eyed and ruling party workers under the garb of implementation of centrally sponsored schemes which are being misused terribly in state for the last three years.
During his extensive tour of upper reaches of Dooru Shahbad in District Anantnag, Mir reached out to disconnected ST people to get to know the multiple problems and hardships confronting them due to the inhuman attitude adopted by the Govt towards the poor and backward classes especially Schedule Tribes.
He observed that people were confronted with difficult situation in every respect as state government has miserably failed to mitigate their sufferings.
He expressed serious concern over the dilapidated condition of roads, lack of medical facilities, no development in upper reaches, no road connectivity at various places which has made the lives of people impossible.
He said that during his tour, the people apprised him about the bungling in allotments of road works to the blue eyed boys of ruling party thereby ignoring the experienced and professional contractors.
He also stated that MANREGA scheme directly benefitting people at grass root level was also being misused terribly thereby denying the benefits meant for poor people.
He said there were many house-holds who have lost their houses due to fire incident some time ago, but no compensation was paid to them, so far. Houseless persons categorized under IAY (Indira Awas Youjana) have been provided half payment only for construction of their houses whereas the rest of the payment has been stopped for the reasons best known to the government.
