SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Wednesday said the good governance claims of the incumbent J&K administration amidst an increase in the cost of living, the rise of unemployment and the development deficit in J&K have fallen flat.
This was said by the Party General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar here at the Party Head Quarters Nawa-e-Subha, Srinagar while talking to media persons. Sagar said the tall claims of the GOI about good governance and bringing a seismic shift in addressing the concerns of the most vulnerable sections of society have fallen flat.
“The development deficit festering in Jammu and Kashmir ever since BJP came to power continues to affect each and every section of the economy, the administration. The people of Jammu and Kashmir are being deprived of basic rights. The unrelated bureaucracy has hampered the advancement of development motioned by the successive NC led governments from time to time. There is no escape from accepting the truth that deliberately, under a thoughtful strategy, the development of Jammu and Kashmir, the aspirations and dreams of people, are being suppressed and left unattended to by the incumbent ruling dispensation at New Delhi and Srinagar,” he said.
He said that the government of Jammu and Kashmir was busy in window dressing. “The so-called investment bonanza and PR propaganda don’t reflect the reality on the ground. The incumbent administration has only been able to reverse the trend of the past seven decades by pushing targets and smothering all signs of democracy in J&K. Their era post-2015 has been marked by no infrastructure augmentation and employment generation. The growth in the business, tourism and horticulture sectors has also come to a halt. The anxiety levels of our youth are soaring high due to unemployment and the sluggish selection process. Our businesses continue to reel under depression on account of the failure of the government to mitigate their sufferings induced by successive Covid lockdowns,” he added.
