“Congress is an instrument of service to the people and will continue to remain at the forefront to highlight the genuine needs concerning the people for their resolution,” he said. The hope of inclusive development and political reconciliation were taken over by despair, as the self styled champions of the Jammu cause failed to satiate the urges and aspirations of people.
The deputation expressed concern over severe shortage of vaccine for the age group of 18 to 45 years resulting in to very slow vaccination and demanded that the government should go for a vigorous campaign especially in the villages and rural belt too, before the antivirus third wave. They said that the there is acute shortage of vaccine for age group of 18-45 yrs and the youth are suffering especially in the entire Rural areas of Jammu province. All those things which are announced should be implemented practically but there is huge gap between claims and implementation, they added.
The senior Congress leaders laid thrust on the Government to fill the gap in health facilities and vaccination, testing and monitoring in Rural areas and bridge the gap between Rural and urban, as rightly said by the apex court of the country.
