Srinagar, Aug 3: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Wednesday said that Kashmir has become a byword for underdevelopment, unemployment and widespread administrative inertia, saying the good governance claims of the government have fallen flat.
This was said by the party General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar while addressing party functionaries at Nawa-e-Subha, Srinagar. Ruing escalating development deficit, administrative inertia in Kashmir, Sagar said, “Tall claims of the GOI about good governance and bringing a seismic shift in addressing the concerns of the most vulnerable sections of society have fallen flat. The development deficit festering in Jammu and Kashmir ever since BJP came to power continues to affect each and every section of J&K’s economy, its administrative set up.”
He further added, “The people of Kashmir are being deprived of basic rights. Unrelated bureaucracy has hampered the advancement of development motioned by the successive NC led governments from time to time. There is no escape from accepting the truth that deliberately, under a thoughtful strategy, the development of Jammu and Kashmir, the aspirations and dreams of people, are being suppressed and left unattended to by the incumbent ruling dispensation at New Delhi and J&K.”
Exhorting the party’s cadre to intensify public outreach, identify people’s grievances and submit those to the provincial headquarters so that they can be raised in Parliament and other forums.
