Urges administration to demonstrate its presence
Banihal, May 25: National Conference District President Sajjad Shaheen has expressed serious concern over scarcity of essential commodities, especially rations at the sale outlets of the CAPD Department, in Ramban district, saying the PDP-BJP government is showing complete apathy towards the people.
“Ration scarcity and defunct utility services are posing enormous problems to the people of entire Ramban district, especially the Banihal Assembly Constituency”, Shaheen said in a statement to KNS, adding that the deplorable scenario calls for immediate redressal measures.
Shaheen urged the administration to demonstrate its presence, as the political dispensation has lost grit to govern, and ensure adequate supplies of essentials particularly ration, sugar and kerosene during the holy month of Ramadan. He said the administration must look into the inadequacy and take early appropriate measures in replenishing supplies wherever there is scarcity. He also called for regulated supply of power and drinking water.
The District President decried the PDP-BJP government for failure on all fronts and abdicating its responsibilities towards the people of the state. He cautioned against testing the patience of the people who feel betrayed by misgovernance and lack of accountability. “In the prevailing situation, the National Conference cannot afford to remain a mute spectator, as far as provision of minimum basics to the people is concerned”, he said and wondered over denial of sugar and kerosene to the consumers for months together.
