‘People have been left to fend for themselves’

Srinagar: The National Conference on Sunday said the government has miserably failed to deliver on the daunting issues that the state is facing, adding that people have been left to fend for themselves.
According to the statement, this was stated by party’s provincial spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar during a visit by several delegations who apprised him about the paucity of various essential amenities in their areas.
“The people apprised him that the sky rocketing prices and inadequate supply of electricity has dampened their Ramadan festivities. The visiting delegation also appraised Dar about the appalling condition of roads, by lanes, alleys in their respective areas,” it said.
Imran said, “The situation is no different across the valley. It was expected of the state administration to rise up to the demands of the people by ensuring them all basic and effective amenities. But the administration seems to have no compassion for the people who continue to hanker for basic and effective amenities,” he said adding, “The implementation of NFSA has adversely affected lakhs of APL and BPL consumers in the state. The ambiguous categorization of consumer enrollment undertaken by the former BJP-PDP government has made it difficult for the people to run their households.”
During the holy month of Ramadan, Imran said, “there is an exponential increase in the demand of people especially Sugar. It was expected of the incumbent governor administration to rise up to the occasion and increase the quota of ration especially Sugar during the month of Ramadan, but to our dismay nothing was done in that direction as well.”
While interacting with the visiting delegation Imran said that the ill- fated North Pole-South Pole alliance of PDP and BJP hit every single vital sector of the state adversely. “The former coalition partners BJP and PDP have ruined the institutions of the state and their working. The ineptitude that has beset the administration is a gift of former BJP-PDP government,” he said.
Imran assured the visiting delegations that he would raise their concerns at an appropriate forum.
He said that the party leadership has been making repeated appeals to the governor administration to ensure steady supply of electricity, ration to people. However our pleas seem to have fallen on deaf ears. “I take this opportunity and urge the incumbent governor administration to make it a priority to rise up to the exigencies of the ensuing holy month and ensure speedy mitigation of the problems of people,’’ he said.
