JAMMU, Feb 8: Apni Party president Altaf Bukhari today said that the authorities have failed to provide basic amenities in Chenab region.
Addressing a meeting of party leaders and workers in Jammu today, Bukhari said that no one in administration gives heed to the growing public issues with regard to basic amenities in rural areas of Chenab region.
“The road connectivity is very poor, supply of clean drinking water in the remote areas is still a distant dream and the unscheduled power cuts have further added to the suffering of the rural population,” Bukhari said addressing a meeting which was organized by Provincial president, Legal Cell, Vikram Rathore.
The meeting was also attended by a large number of people from Bhaderwah. During this meeting, dozens of people joined the Apni Party.
Bukhari welcomed the new entrants into the party and hoped that their joining would strengthen the party in Bhaderwah area.
He listened to the issues of the people belonging to Bhaderwah and other parts of Doda district and assured them all possible support for the redressal of public issues.
He said that the equitable development is possible in all the regions of J&K when there is an elected Govt in place of a bureaucratic rule. Such rule is not answerable to the people of J&K, but an elected Govt is answerable to the public.
He said that the democratically elected Govt is able to pull up the bureaucracy to ensure the development and implementation of public welfare schemes on ground even in remote and far-flung villages of Jammu and Kashmir irrespective of any kind of disparity.
“The people have lost their faith in the LG administration. Therefore, holding of assembly elections and restoration of statehood is necessary to restore the lost faith of the people,” Bukhari added.
“We believe that the people of all the regions should be treated equally irrespective of caste, creed, region, or religion. Our motive is to bring equitable development, peace and development in the society. Also to bring people of two regions together for peace and prosperity of J&K,” he said.
Bukhari announced Anil Kumar, Apni Party leader, as District president of district Doda to strengthen the organizational structure at the ground level.
Provincial president, Manjit Singh and Ch Qamar Ali from Rajouri also spoke on the occasion.
