Vijaypur, July 01: Apni Party (AP) provincial president Jammu and former minister, Manjit Singh Friday demanded restoration of political activities and holding of assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir to end the suffering of the general masses.
Speaking at a monthly meeting of Apni Party at Vijaypur, Manjit Singh, the former minister, said that the political situation in J&K needs to be given attention to restore confidence of the people which has received a major setback from the last four years, a party statement said.
“The absence of an elected government has dented the development and given rise to the unemployment and the unemployed youth are not getting adequate employment opportunities in J&K. If a political government comes to power, it would work for the people and the youth by making the bureaucracy accountable for the non-performance,” he said.
He said that the bureaucracy works without considering the public issues and imposing whatever decisions they take in their offices. The people are the worst sufferers due to the ill planned decisions.
He said that poor farmers, West Pakistan Refugees, OBCs, Displaced Persons and others cultivating government land are being made landless by the same government which has the responsibility to work for the welfare of the people in general.
“The poor people rendered landless and hence, they are starving for their survival in the villages across Jammu region. The harsh authoritative decisions of the respective administrations have mocked the poor people and farmers who are dependent on the land under their possession for decades,” he said.
He said that the authorities mock the poor farmers by clicking photos with them after snatching land from them. Can you tell us where these poor will go? How will they survive after the retrieval of land?”
He criticized the government and the administration’s intention and said that the solution of all the issues was to hold assembly elections.
“We will not tolerate such inhuman attitude of the authorities towards the poor people. There must be a policy for the regularization of the daily wagers in all the government departments. Regular advertisement of the vacant posts and development in all the villages, promotion of border tourism, and equitable development in all the regions,” he said.
He said that the villages are worst affected due to the unscheduled power cuts and clean drinking water.
“We are really concerned about the decision of charging water usage charges by the Irrigation Department. Government must desist from such kind of decisions which put the people in unnecessary financial constraints,” he added.
Earlier, he listened to the grievances of the party leaders regarding public issues and assured them that their demands would be projected before the concerned authorities for the early redressal.
