Beerwah: National Conference (NC) Working President and MLA Beerwah, Omar Abdullah on Tuesday asked PDP BJP government to respect the institution of an MLA and help facilitate the development works in their respective areas.
In a day-long interaction with district administrative officers, Abdullah highlighted the issues confronting the area and also heard the grievances of locals who were also present in the meeting, a statement issued by NC said.
He was accompanied by senior NC leader and Chief Spokesperson JKNC Aga Syed Ruhullah Mehdi, MLC Aga Syed Mehmood, and Political Secretary to Working President Tanvir Sadiq.
Directing the district administration to resolve public issues in a time-bound and effective manner, Omar said no one should be allowed to act as an impediment to the development works.
“It is very unfortunate that some people in the administration want to keep the ruling party happy by accommodating those who have no say in the constituency. MLA is the chief minister of his constituency and therefore its incumbent upon all the administrative officers to respect this set protocol,” Omar said. “Since the people have reposed faith on an elected representative, it therefore is incumbent upon the government and its machinery to listen and give due respect to the elected MLA.”
He asked the officers to restore and construct already taken up roads in Beerwah Constituency. He asked the the R&B officials to expedite the work on Beerwah, Magam, Budgam roads without any delay and said the government should understand the grave condition of roads across the Valley and take immediate steps to restore them.
In the meeting it was impressed upon concerned medical officers to ensure round the clock services at DH Budgam, Sub-District Hospital Beerwah and that it functions smoothly without any issues.
The MLA Beerwah also asked the officials of Irrigation to ensure that irrigation canals and link-canals are working effectively so that farmers and cultivators get adequate irrigation water and don’t suffer on this account.
