Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference General Secretary Haji Ali Muhammad Sagar has said that the present administration of Jammu and Kashmir has completely failed to provide basic facilities and essential services to the people.

“The tyranny of non-local bureaucrats has proved fatal to the people here as they are constantly unable to perform their duties and responsibilities,” he, according to the NC spokesperson, said this while addressing a meeting at the party headquarters today. District President Srinagar Pir Afaq Ahmed, Women Wing Provincial President Er. Sabia Qadri and other officials were also present at the meeting.

During the meeting, the participants of the meeting highlighted the problems and difficulties of the people of their respective areas before the General Secretary. The party general secretary directed the party functionaries to voice public grievances at all appropriate forums for their speedy redressal.

The meeting was particularly marked up by threadbare discussions on shortage of electricity, ration crisis, prolonged power outages, inflation, unemployment and spur in drug menace.

Addressing the meeting, Sagar said that although the current rulers have been making loud claims about ensuring a steady supply of basic utility services the ground situation is completely contrary to such claims.

“Erratic power supply has particularly become the norm of the day. No schedule is being followed. It was claimed that power steady power supply would be ensured throughout the winter. Let alone ensuring the availability of power supply during winter, the government is not able to ensure adequate power supply at the very onset of winter. People only receive hefty bills, but when it comes to ensuring adequate power supply, the government turns volte-face,” he said.

Sagar said that all the claims of development and prosperity by the government are smoke screens to hide their failures on every front.
