JAMMU, Nov 10:  A delegation of J&K National Panthers Party (NPP) led by Prof Bhim Singh and comprising Harsh Dev Singh, Balwant Singh Mankotia, Yash Paul Kundal –all ( ex-MLAs) today called on the Governor, Satya Pal Malik and discussed the political scenario in the State.
While lauding the initiatives of the Governor to curb corruption in the State, the NPP leaders sought stringent action against politicians and bureaucrats who had promoted a culture of corruption during last about four years’ BJP-PDP rule.
Prof Bhim Singh appealed to the Governor to issue an ordinance for holding delimitation of Assembly constituencies in the State so as to ensure equitable share in political and economic power to all regions of the State. He further sought early dissolution of J&K Assembly in consonance with the prevalent practices and as per the mandate of constitution so as to pave way for fresh elections in the state.
Harsh Dev Singh drew the attention of the Governor towards the high handedness of bureaucracy coupled with burgeoning corruption in the State which was largely responsible for growing alienation among the masses. He said that some officers despite their tainted credentials and scandalous antecedents continued to enjoy plum postings which had adversely impacted upon the development initiatives launched in the State. He said that rural masses had suffered immensely due to non- provision of their hard earned wages under MGNREGA during the last 2-3 years in the wake of large scale loot and plunder of funds sanctioned under the scheme.
He called for early settlement of the issues of DRWs, RETs, Contractuals, MGNREGA workers, NHM and FMPHWs besides the genuine concerns of Anganwari and Asha workers. He called for early completion of Ramnagar University satellite campus project which had been abandoned since 2014.
BS Mankotia called for addressing the plight of inhabitants of Saddal village and compensation to those farmers whose lands were acquired by Army in Udhampur while, YP Kundal sought allotment of 5 marla plots in safer zones for border dwellers.
