Jammu, Aug 11: Criticizing the Government decision of cancellation of 63 community Development (CD) Blocks, sanctioned and operationalzed in Oct. 2014, Former MLC and Chief Spokesperson Mr. Ravider Shrma said that several remote and deserving areas have been deprived of administrative units, by this decision.
In a letter to Lt. Governor, Sharma said that the previous NC-Congress Government had considered the representations of people, from left out areas, after protests over first phase of sanction of administrative units and did justice to several remote and more deserving areas in various districts of Jammu and Kashmir, by creating 63 BDO Blocks..
He referred to the case of Devak in Sunderbani and Dharmsal in Kalakote besides Ghambir Muglan etc. in Rajouri District, which were most deserving in view of topography and distance but the present cancellation of the said order has deprived the people of this basic facility for development units. The day in and day out, the Govt. claims of massive development activities but the people are being punished of the already sanctioned units, for the failure of BJP-PDP Govt. and present dispensation to make them functional. The people should not suffer for the failure of the Govt. to post or assign BDOs in the new blocks. Mr. Sharma demanded immediate review of the order of cancellation and consider the deserving areas for the same at the earliest, including Devak in Sunderbani.
