Udhampur, Nov 30: Rattan Lal Gupta, Provincial President Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (JKNC) Jammu on Thursday said that the common people of J&K are leading a miserable life due to the absence of a popular government. He emphasized the dire need to hold assembly elections in J&K at the earliest.
Lal said this while interacting with the prominent party functionaries of Udhampur- Reasi Zone at Tikri where a one-day delegate convention is scheduled to be held on December 03, 2023. The convention, as per the party statement, will be addressed by NC Vice President and former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah.
The party functionaries led by Zonal President and former minister Abdul Gani Malik apprised the Provincial President of the problems being faced by the people of the remote areas of district Udhampur and Reasi like Dudu, Basantgarh, Latti, Pancheri, Reasi's Gulab Garh, Mahore and several others areas in the region, the statement said.
Malik said that in the absence of a popular government, the authorities in different departments had adopted a non-serious approach with nobody ready to listen to the woes of the people. He informed the Provincial President that with the onset of winter, the Administration has failed to put in place adequate stocks of essentials in advance.
Gupta, after giving a keen and patient hearing to the party functionaries castigated the government for "not making" pre-winter arrangements in the region. "The J&K administration has to ensure that adequate stock of essential commodities in the far-flung areas of the region which remain cut off from the rest of the nation after winter snowfall in the region. If the administration still fails to do so it could prove fatal for the people of these remote areas," he said.
The NC leader asked the authorities concerned in Udhampur to "shun lackadaisical attitude" and initiate appropriate measures for making available the essential commodities to the people in the areas prone to cut-off in the winter season before it is too late.
Meanwhile, the senior NC leader asked the party functionaries to further strengthen the party by remaining present among the people at the grassroots level to address their genuine concerns.
