Ministers came, left without meeting people : Bhardwaj

Early Times Report

Bishnah, Jan 28: Senior Congress leader Mohinder Kumar Bhardwaj has questioned the logic behind the troupe of central ministers swarming Jammu and Kashmir particularly the neglected and troubled border areas and ended up making a laughing stock of themselves in public eye. Their visit, the air sojourn at the cost of the public money, was conceived on fallacious grounds to hoodwink people of Jammu and Kashmir in the name of development which neither exists on ground nor was in any manner reflected from the actions of these ministers.
Addressing an impressive public function here, Bhardwaj said one of the ministers inaugurated a stadium only repeating the exercise which had taken place in the past on many occasions. It is ironic that he left in a huff without interacting with the people of the area and listening to their woes, the similar story has been repeated by other ministers who visited different parts of the Union territory, he added.
Bhardwaj said that the biggest story unfolding is the Panchayati Raj system coming to a total stand still. Not only are the Panchayat’s non functional due to Governments apathy on account of lack of funds and delegation of powers to the elected representatives of the people, but the state administration has been insulting them whenever they approach them with their respective areas problems, he observed. This is how BJP has strengthened democracy at grass root level in Jammu and Kashmir, he ridiculed.
Further describing 36 Union Ministers flying visit as gross misuse of public Money as it is has served no purpose Bhardwaj demanded that the center and the state administration should clarify on the motive of thee visits and give details of the money spent and purpose achieved.
Speaking on the occasion, Hari Singh, District president of Congress said that farmers in Jammu region are facing the worst crisis witnessed in the recent past on account of multiple failure of their crops due to vagaries of weather. Their plight has been worsened by the indifferent attitude of the center and state Government who have offered the suffering peasantry nothing but hollow promises.
Others who spoke at the occasion were Kailash Saini, Councillor Municipal Committee Arnia, Krishan Saini Block President Congress, Diwan Chand Khajuria, Vijay Kumar, Tara Singh, Ghansham Sharma, Pritam singh, Sushil Kumar, Surinder Singh, Kirpal singh, Subhash Chander, Raj Kumar Saini, master Prem, M.A Bhatti.
