JK people seek end to development hiatus: NC
Srinagar: “People of Jammu and Kashmir are fed up of the developmental hiatus and want an early end to the instability, unemployment, and development deficit in Jammu and Kashmir.”
This was stated by Jammu and Kashmir National Conference General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar while addressing party delegates of Khanyar Constituency here at Party headquarters Nawa-e-Subha, Srinagar. He said that the people of JK want an end to political instability, absence of democratic government, all prevailing development deficit, soaring unemployment, widespread development deficit and are looking up to NC to propel the region towards safe shores.
On the occasion, Block President of Khanyar Constituency Bashir Ahmed Wani (Halwai) was re-elected as block president Khanyar. The exercise was transparently carried out by In-Charge election Dr Bashir Veeri and concerned observers.
Among others party delegates and other functionaries were present on the occasion. The winning candidate was felicitated by the functionaries on the occasion with a view that he will continue to work untiringly to make the party stronger at the grass root level. YNC PP Salman Ali Sagar was also present.
“Seven years on, J&K presents a sad story of governance, and accountability. These years have been most traumatic and devastating with JK’s youth, farmers, traders, hoteliers, artisans and every democratic institution taking the biggest hit. The only thing that was achieved in JK all these years since 2015 was to upend more than two decades of reconciliation, development, progress and peacemaking. There has been no headway on major health, education, road and rail network projects in the region since 2015,” he said.
“The successive regimes have miserably failed to keep up with the good work undertaken by the NC led governments until 2015. In the name of development, people are only witnessing window dressing and hyper PR drives. No new project has been sanctioned for Srinagar. The urban artisans, traders, hoteliers and houseboat owners are among the worst affected. The misfortune of organized laborers and unorganized labour forces has also increased,” he added.
