Jammu, Dec 09: Abdul Majid Wani General Secretary of Pradesh Congress Committee and former Minister for R&B in last government, today, castigated the present government for its failure in meeting long pending demands of the people of erstwhile Doda district. The present government which is an unnatural combination of north and south poles has stalled the development process in whole Chenab Valley Region, which witnessed a marvelous phase of growth and development under the leadership of Ghulam Nabi Azad as Chief Minister of the state as well as union health minister.
Whether it was accord of sanction for new districts, new medical college in Doda, ITIs, new government degree & polytechnic colleges, Rs 26 crores Dessa to Doda Water Supply Scheme, mini secretariat, new administrative units, new hospital building, construction of new sports stadium, Ganpat Bridge in Doda, University campus for Bhaderwah, setting up of trauma hospitals, new road networks under PMGSY & CRF, the people of Doda witnessed an unprecedented development.
But the present government has failed to complete tender process for construction of Sudh Mahadev Marmat tunnel and 8 kilometers Dessa Capran tunnels, which were sanctioned and even partial funds were released by the last government with efforts of Ghulam Nabi Azad, Dr Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi. These projects have been stalled with even no progress in the Medical College project.
Majid Wani, further, said the present regime in Doda district has started a new spree of looting of tax payers money, as the major works are being allotted and sub allotted to workers of a particular party, which has casted its shadow on quality of these works. Demanding, constitution of a Special Investigating Team under the chairmanship of present DIG of Doda Ramban range, Majid Wani asked for an impartial probe in all works executed during last three years.
Further, Majid Wani demanded for re-designating Deputy Commissioner Doda as Commissioner Doda Ramban Kishtwar and announcement of a special new division comprising all three districts of erstwhile Doda district, so as to relieve poor people of the whole Chenab Valley Region from sufferings of covering long 6-8 hours journeys to reach Jammu division head quarters for their petty works.
Ab Majid Wani showed his disappointment over the non implementation of important decisions taken by the last government, wherein new higher secondary schools for Troan, Paryote, Troan, Paryote, Malori, Dashnan, Hanch Mohalla, Jodhpur, Humble, Roat, Chalote, Bijarni, Udhyanpur, Babore were cleared in cabinet meetings of last NC Congress government.
Majid Wani also demanded announcement for a special horticulture package for replacement of apple, walnut trees with new varieties of high yield plants as have been announced for Kashmir valley.
