Development missing on ground: Nasir Aslam Wani
Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Friday asserted that the much-touted “change” is not visible on the ground in Jammu and Kashmir or Ladakh saying the entire region continues to remain on edge.
According to the statement issued here, NC Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani said that this while addressing scores of party functionaries office bearers from Amira kadal constituency here at party headquarters Nawa e subha Srinagar.
On the occasion, Nasir launched the party’s membership drive.
Addressing the functionaries, Wani said that development is only visible in the hashtags of social media and shoddy propaganda on the media. “The promised flood of fresh investments, employment extravaganza, and up-gradation and augmentation of basic infrastructure is also not visible on the ground. The Political vacuum and ever-increasing gap between administration and people is another stark feature of the ruling BJP’s new version of Naya Kashmir,” he said.
He said that the much-touted development agenda, employment and up-gradation of infrastructure is nowhere on the to-do list of the government. “On the contrary, the government is busy doing window dressing. The response of the government to the successive weather vagaries since autumn last year coupled with its failure to curb the resurgence of COVID-19 is also a telling indictment of indifference of the unrelated bureaucracy towards issues confronting people.”
