‘8 ambulances donated in two years in Beerwah’
SRINAGAR: National Conference leader on Wednesday said that party’s working president Omar Abdullah’s endeavour as the elected representative from Beerwah is to ensure holistic, planned and equitable allocation of resources and funds irrespective of political affiliations and ideologies.
Addressing a public gathering at Iskanderpora in Khag, the political secretary to Omar Abdullah, Tanvir Sadiq said “Omar promised you Magam-Beerwah-Budgam, Aripthan-Iskanderpora-Khag road, he gave you; he promised you that every halqa will see equitable development, it is evident everywhere; he promised bridge on Sukhnag, that will be turned into reality soon; he promised to strengthen health services in the constituency, see in the last two years he has given seven ambulances to PHCs – Khag, Poshker, Beerwah, Gundipora, Magam, Narbal and now the 8th here to health sub-centre Iskanderpora.”
“Ambulance has been your constant demand to Omar Sahab, I know how much your people have suffered; now you are not at the mercy of anyone- if someone needs to go to hospital here is your van donated by your MLA Mr Omar Abdullah ” said Tanvir while donating 8th Ambulance to PHC Iskanderpora adding “Now almost all the PHC’s have their own ambulances.
Tanvir alleged the Mehbooba Mufti-led government had alienated the people and widened the already deep trust deficit in the valley. “The PDP government has taken Kashmir back by a decade and all peace that we brought has been wasted. The level of alienation and resentment among the people in general and the youth in particular is alarming.”
“Now we hear that even for filing an FIR she needs to seek permission from her bosses in Delhi. She has been humiliated time and again by her bosses but the lust for chair is so much that she will prefer Kashmiris being subject to all alienation and humiliation but not leave the chair. Her government is responsible for the rapidly deteriorating situation in Kashmir.”
He said poor are facing a lot of difficulties due to shortage of ration and the prices of sugar have gone high and purchasing capacity of poor and downtrodden has gone very low.
Sadiq alleged that the poor, widow, handicapped and old age are not getting pension which is social security for the poor. “Steep rise in the prices have made the condition of common poor people very miserable. The downtrodden are feeling further depressed and poor people becoming further poor.”
Tanvir asked people to reach out to more and more youth and involve them in “constructive party activities aimed at ushering the state into another corrective era of peace, progress and stability”.
Constituency in-charge Beerwah Prof. Ab Majid Mattu, block president Khag Adv. Aftab Ahmed, block president Beerwah Ghulam Ahmed Khan and others addressed the gathering.
