SAMBA, Dec 12: Apni Party Provincial President Jammu Manjit Singh has expressed concern over the poor basic amenities with no developmental activities in the Schedule Caste colonies.
Addressing a public meeting at village Vardhan, Manjit Singh said that the administration has adopted a partial approach in its activities on the directions of a political party which believes in division of society for electoral politics.
The meeting was organized by District President, SC Wing, Samba District, Raj Kumar and attended by SC State Coordinator, Bodh Raj Bhagat, District President, Samba, Raman Thappa, Sarpanch Blatter, Suraj Parkash Verma and others. In this meeting, over 10 people including Panch Rattan Lal joined the Apni Party.
Welcoming them into the Party fold, Manjit Singh said that people in the village still lack basic facilities like roads, clean drinking water and round the clock electricity even after seven decades of independence.
“If the administration would be impartial in its approach, the locality should have been developed equally. The administration seems to be working on the directives of a political party and accordingly the basic amenities are provided to the people,” he said.
He further pointed out the poor cleanliness and unhygienic conditions in the Schedule Caste localities because of negligence of the authorities concerned. “The people are not provided proper lanes and drains even after repeated requests,” he said.
He appealed to the people to join hands with the Apni Party and strengthen it on the ground so that the rights of the marginalized classes can be fulfilled. He said that the Apni Party believes in the unity of all sections of society and equal treatment to them.
