Srinagar, Mar 14 : Congress today accused Govt of neglecting development of Gujjar, Bakerwal Communities merely on political lines, as the developmental schemes for upliftment of these poor people are not being executed properly anywhere in the State, with the result these people are being made to suffer for no fault of theirs, this was stated by J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President G.A.
