KATHUA: National Conference OBC Cell on Monday lashed out at PDP-BJP for leaving Jammu and Kashmir into “unprecedented crisis” and inflicting miseries to the people of all the three regions.
“The just ended government will be remembered for failure on all fronts and putting developmental tempo into disarray,” co-chairperson of the cell Abdul Gani Teli said while addressing a series of meetings in Kathua district.
He said essential services braved a major brunt and the entire Jammu region suffered on account of drinking water and power.
“The scenario is quite dismal, despite the PDP-BJP government quitting,” Teli said in a statement and called for ensuring regulated power and drinking water during the ongoing summer spell.
He expressed deep concern over frequent and unscheduled power cuts and scarce supply of drinking water in remote and border areas in particular and said the people were suffering hugely. He said the overall situation is quite alarming and highly deplorable as the “insensitive” government miserably failed in shouldering responsibilities towards the citizens.
He sought standard quality and adequate quantity of food-grain stock at the PDS sale outlets, saying the consumers are made to wait for days together for rations, apart from the food-grains being not of standard quality. He demanded adequate stocking on all the depots and said the weaker sections of the society were on the receiving end and their plight is miserable.
On these occasions, several prominent workers of the PDP joined National Conference and reposed their trust in the party’s policies and programmes, a statement issued here said.
Welcoming the new entrants, Abdul Gani Teli said their joining will further strengthen the party at grassroots level. He said National Conference alone can steer out the state to peace, progress and prosperity.
