After water, coal and mineral resources, now lithium reserves of J&K on sale: Kamaal
Says, with govt missing on ground, public woes touching new heights
Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference Additional General Secretary Dr. Sheikh Mustafa Kamal on Tuesday said efforts are being made to put the lithium reserves of Jammu on sale after water, coal mining and mineral resources were leased out to non-locals.
Kamal, according to the NC spokesperson, said this while interacting with party leaders and functionaries at party headquarters Nawa e subah, Srinagar. “The integrity and freedom of the country can be sustained only by the supremacy of democracy and the constitution, but unfortunately J&K continues to remain under the grip of bureaucratic raj.J&K has been left at the mercy of the undemocratic system and restoration of democracy seems to be a long haul. Central government does not care about the feelings, sentiments and aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.
Expressing concern over the increase in the problems and difficulties of the people, Dr Kamal said that public welfare has long been rescinded from the to-do list of the government. “Our airdropped rulers are only engaged in running paper horses while leaving the people at the mercy of the circumstances. The lopsided and whimsical policies of the administration have swelled the difficulties of our people.”
“Unemployment has broken all records. Our young generation is drowning in the whirlpool of despair and hopelessness. Our urban and rural infrastructure is in shambles. Accountability has taken deep roots within the administration. People don’t know where to get their problems addressed,” he said.
Kamaal urged the office-bearers and workers to stay in close contact with the people and spare no efforts in addressing their sufferings in the current tough times.
Senior leaders Haji Mubarak Gul, Ghulam Mohiuddin Mir, Engineer Sabia Qadri, Younis Gul, Dr. Muhammad Saeed Makhdoomi, Qaiser Jalali and others were present at the meeting.
