Srinagar: The National Conference on Tuesday urged the government to ensure all basic amenities to the people during the month of Ramadan, saying that the administration should depute flying squads to ensure price stability of essential items.
“The governor’s administration is duty bound to ensure all basic and effective facilities to the people during this month,” the NC leader Ali Muhammad Sagar said while presiding over a meet of officer bearers and functionaries here – according to the statement.
“The prices of all essential items including fruits, vegetables and other Ramadan specific items like Dates etc should be conspicuously displayed at all market places and shops. Digital price boards should be set up for the benefit of people at various places. The government is duty bound to provide hassle free parking facilities at various places in particular near the prominent mosques and shrines of the state,” he said.
He further added, “It’s expected of the incumbent governor administration to ensure steady ration supply at all depot centres. It would be appreciable if the administration increases the quota of sugar for this month. The roads and alleys leading to mosques and shrines of the valley and the state in general should be lit up so that people don’t face any difficulty during evening and early morning hours.”
“I urge the administration to depute area specific flying squads in various markets to ensure price stability, besides that divisional administration should make public the specific phone numbers or email addresses where the common masses can lodge their complaint against any irregularity, black marketing or price rise. Moreover, the steady electricity supply and water supply must be ensured,” he said.
