Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference General Secretary Haji Ali Muhammad Sagar on Friday said that only NC can galvanize the developmental tempo and tap the tourism potential of Srinagar city to the fullest.

He, according to the NC spokesperson, said this while interacting with a number of public, and worker’s delegations that had called on him here at the party headquarters Nawa-e-Subha, Srinagar.

He stated that the previous NC government led by Omar Abdullah sahib had pursued policies to materialize its vision of ensuring core civic facilities and effective public utility services to the city dwellers across the length and breadth of the city.

Referring to the absence of elected representatives, Sagar said, “Like every other region in J&K, development in Srinagar too has been confined to paperwork only. There is a coterie of unrelated officials who have no understanding of the ground situation taking the calls.”

Referring to the LCMA’s insensitive eviction drive that has put livelihoods and habitats in Nishat, Shalimar, and Harwan at risk, Sagar said, “Lack of stakeholder involvement in policy conception and design and then decrees by the government that, at times, tend to be irrational. All in all, people’s lives get affected and misery ensues. This has to end. Conservation of the Dal Lake, its ecosystem has to be carried out expeditiously but the process has to be least disruptive to adjoining populations.”

Visiting delegations also raised the issue of curtailment of rations at stores and widespread unemployment. Sagar, who was all ears to the issues aired by the party functionaries, assured them that he would take up the matter at all appropriate levels for early mitigation.
