RAMNAGAR, Dec 10: Alleging neglect and deprivation of Ramnagar constituency in the matter of development,   JKNPP chairman and former minister, Harshdev Singh has alleged that development initiatives launched by him in the past had come to a grinding halt with no action whatsoever to activate the derailed projects which continued to remain in limbo for the last around two years.
Addressing a public gathering in Ramnagar town today, he expressed grave concern over the pathetic plight of the existing roads, chaotic power supply system, dysfunctional water supply schemes, corruption plagued Rural Development and Food and Supplies Departments   and staff deficient schooling system. He claimed that Ramnagar constituency, once known for revolutionary growth and development, had been relegated to the position of tail ender in the matter of development.
Strongly flaying the abandonment of work on the Rs 15 crore satellite university campus in Ramnagar, Singh regretted that the construction work on the project was stopped in January 2015 immediately after he ceased to be MLA despite 90 percent of the project having been completed. He further questioned the fate of Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) approved under the aegis of Agricultural University at Marta, Ramnagar and ITI complex at Kirmoo, Ramnagar during 2012-13 for Rs  11 crore and Rs  3 crore respectively and deplored non initiation of any action in respect thereof during the last two years.
Harshdev Singh   expressed grave concern over the non commencement of construction work over the PMGSY schemes that got sanctioned by him under Phase-X during 2013-14. He regretted that out of 27 road projects prepared, processed and technically approved by STA during 2013-14 under PMGSY at a cost of over 300 crore, two road schemes namely Battal-Mansar-Barigarh and Kela-Dhara costing Rs  16.53 crore and 3.18 crore respectively,  were mischievously deleted from the sanction and sought an enquiry into the same.
Seeking immediate credit of compensation amount to the accounts of farmers for various PMGSY roads including Massal-Kanah road, Chowki-Khorkhal road, Badhole Surni road, Sulan-Kela road, Tagan-Sathian road, Sunetar-Dhanwalat road, Majalta-Satrairi road and Amroh-Incha road, he warmed that exploitation of rural folk, farming community and marginalized sections shall no longer be tolerated.
