SRINAGAR, Jan 22:While reacting to releasing of District Good Governance Index (DGGI) for J&K, CPI(M) leader Mohamad Yousuf Tarigami on Saturday said that claims of good governance and development in J&K is far from ground realities.
One of the principle fundamentals of good governance is participation and representation of people ,a right which continues to be denied to the people of J&K.
Releasing such indexes is intended only to help the government in optics wise.
However, ground reality of dilapidated roads, erratic power supply, inaccessibility of portable water combined with huge unemployment, social unrest is reflecting contrasting picture. For good goverance accountability is the key for that ensuring freedom of press, freedom of expression and association is paramount.
The Government must at the first instance restore the rights of the people which unfortunately are being denied to them.
