He alleged that except photo sessions for cheap publicity, nothing concrete has been done on the ground to provide relief to the people, who have been bearing brunt of the skirmishes on the borders.
Interacting with delegation of border residents of Kathua, who called on him here today, Singh regretted that miseries of the border residents have been increasing with every passing day but the Government has remained unmoved.
The MLC assured that he would effectively take up their problems with the concerned authorities and if needed would launch agitation.
Regretting that borders residents  are facing hardship due to prevailing situation on the borders, Singh regretted that Govt  failed to control the situation. He said that fragile peace is prevailing on the border presently but the State Govt has failed to provide basic amenities to the border residents.
