Govt failed to implement developmental schemes in backward areas: PDP

Excelsior Correspondent
MAHORE, June 11: People’s Democratic Party (PDP) today lambasted the coalition regime for its failure to execute developmental schemes in remotest backward areas.
Addressing a meeting of party workers at Mahore, senior PDP leader Mohammad Sartaz Madni flayed the coalition regime for halting developmental activities in the State. He regretted that residents of the backward and far-flung areas were the worst victim of Government’s non serious attitude towards executing development programmes. PDP leader said that PMGSY programme which was aimed at connecting inaccessible areas through road connectivity with the nearby towns has virtually came to halt in the remotest areas of Reasi because State Government has failed to properly implement this programme.
Contesting claims of the coalition regime on developmental fronts, he said that failure of the authorities to implement PMGSY programmes in backward areas speaks about non serious attitude of those who are at the helm of the affairs. He reminded that during the regime of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed various developmental projects were initiated for the backward regions but the present dispensation has reversed the whole process.
Taking a dig at coalition regime for its failure to provide even basic amenities to the people, he said that majority of the residents of the backward areas of Reasi have been confronting with the shortage of ration but Government was not serious to solve this problem. He said that ration is not available in the Government runs depots and worst sufferers are people living below the poverty line. He further said that poverty alleviation programmes claimed to the launched by the Government have been confined only on papers.
Coming down heavily on the coalition regime headed by Omar Abdullah, PDP leader said that during the last three and half years this Government has done nothing to ameliorate lot of the people. He regretted that instead of mitigate woes of the people, this regime multiplied problems of the masses due to its mis-goverance and mal-practices.
