Early Times Report

Rajouri, Nov 20 : President of Peoples Democratic (PDP) Mehbooba Mufti today said that far flung areas were the worst victims of govern-ment's apathy. Addressing impressive public meetings today at Devak in Sunderbani area and Dongi in Rajouri assembly segment, the PDP president said that people of far flung areas were still suffering on account lack of basic amenities and facilities like health, water, power, education etc.
She said that it was result of the wrong planning of the coalition regime headed by National Conference that children in these far flung areas have to walk long distances to attend schools. Taking a dig at the government for charging huge power tariff from the people, she said that despite charging huge fee from the poorest of the poor, the government has failed to provide power to the people. She said all parts of the state were confronting with bad power supply but the situation was worst in far-flung areas.
Pointing towards non availability of health facilities in the state, she said that health facilities were almost nil and people have to travel hundreds of miles to get treatment.
"Funds sanctioned for the development of Scheduled Tribe (ST), under Border Area Development Project (BADP), MGNERGA , RGGVY, and other central sponsored schemes are not utilized properly so that people could benefit", he said and deserving people were not getting benefit of such schemes.
She further added that thousands of cases for financial aid to elderly people , widows , handicapped persons were pending for the last four years . "On one hand prices are going up and on the other hand poor people deprived of even BPL and Antudiya ration", she regretted.
Reiterating resolve of her party to solve problems of all regions and sub-regions of the State, she said that PDP was committed to overall development of the state and equal opportunities and share to all regions, sub regions especially to far flung areas. "PDP during its three years tenure worked for the uniform development of the State.
She informed the gathering that almost one lakh ReT teachers were spread uniformally all over the state where in the rural and far flung areas benefited maximum . All these measures brought in a sea change in the state and that is what people are appreciating PDP, she said.
Ms Mufti assured people that PDP will take up creation of block at Devak and tehsil for Dongi . Responding to the demands of the locals, she said that Devak- Shiv Khodi road should be taken on priority. "There is absolute poverty and no sources of productive employment therefore there should be direct police recruitment for these areas, she demanded.
Former Minister Tariq Hamid Karra in his address criticized coalition regime for its failure to check corruption. He said that during the last four years only achievement of the coalition was legalization of corruption.
He said that corruption has crossed all limits and the head of the State was giving excuses to legitimize rampant corruption in the state. Choudhary Zulfikar, Yashpal Sharma, Shanti Devi, Abdul Qayoom Dar, Surinder Choudhary, Choudhary Qamar Din, Shahzad Khan, Shiv Dev Singh, Krishan Chand, Rajinder Singh, Anil Sharma, and others also spoke on the occasion.
