‘People in far flung areas facing immense hardships’

Srinagar: There is a growing disconnect between the governor administration and people of the state and people in far flung areas are facing “immense hardships”, Peoples Conference Chairman Sajad Gani Lone said on Monday.
Lone was addressing people while after he kick-started party’s outreach program ‘Salaam-wa-Kalaam’ in district Kupwara.
Lone while addressing public interactions at Nechhama, Satkoji, Butshungi, Behnipora, Rajpora, Ahgam and Zachaldara, said that there was an immediate need for greater interaction of officers at grassroots level “to reverse the trend towards disaffection and disempowerment and provide a bridge between government and citizens that promises a more effective and efficient governance delivery system”.
“People in far flung areas are facing immense hardships on a growing number of pressing issues with no one there to listen to their plight. There is growing disconnect between the governor administration and people of the state,” he stated. While people were showing up in droves in government departments and demanding to be heard, Lone said it was up to officials at every level of government to listen to and work with them to solve these challenges.
“Governor Administration must hear their concerns and take action to resolve their grievances,” he added.
Sajad further said that in order to benefit the local populace of the area, it was imperative upon the government to increase the pace of public works being executed in the area, stressing upon the need to improve road connectivity, communication and supply of water.
The work on Bungus road, Handwara hospital and other projects was going on at a snail’s pace and there was an acute shortage of drinking water as the local administration has failed to provide regular water supply, Lone alleged.
“It is imperative upon the administration to fast track unfinished developmental and welfare projects in the area”, he added.
Lone also pointed out on the hardships faced by the kith and kin of disappeared persons in the area.
He said that there was an “acute problem of disappeared persons wherein the police have lodged FIR’s showing these people have crossed over to the other side of the border”.
“While there is no proof to support the claim, their families are put through an ordeal and denied even the basic fundamental rights like issuing a passport. Instead of being compensated for their losses they are being punished for crime they have not committed”, he added.
