SRINAGAR: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) General Secretary Nizamuddin Bhat tod said that efforts of state Government to utilise its resource for holistic development of the state have started yielding results with Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti personally reaching out to grass root to get the feedback.
e in a statement issued said that Mehbooba Mufti’s personal interaction in far flung areas like Karnah, Kargil, Gurez, Machil, Rajouri, and Poonch is manifestation of her sincere desire to keep herself posted with the immediate problems facing people and her intention to ensure appropriate redressal.
Bhat said that administration is being made more responsive, accountable and active and local needs get an exposure. He said, people also appreciate her interest and concern as most of the pressing issues which otherwise get ignored at the expense of poor and needy get resolved.
“It has been observed that her visit gets administration on the doorstep of common man and widows, orphans and sufferers of calamities get directly benefited. Important public issues including development projects, employment plans and social issues of significance come for purposeful mention at ground zero with administration being made accountable for proper attention, actual management and desired redressal”, he adds.
Bhat said that gestures from Chief Minister like handing over relief cheques to fire sufferers , or orders of appointment to beneficiaries under SRO, or distribution of sccooties to school girls or encouragement to sportspersons are apparently small measures. But come as a big relief to victims, sufferers and the upcoming generation. .
He said that Chief Minister’s touch with the people is helping in building the trust also which unfortunately her adversaries are hell-bent to shatter through a malicious campaign. He said along with the common man who derives satisfaction, the dministration also is getting much desired fillip to work hard and resolve peoples problems without delay or wrangles.
Bhat said during her visit to Gurez Chief Minister desired opening up of more areas and routes to expand internal connectivity and restore traditional routes including Gurez –Astoor road. These issues touch the very sentiment of the truncated people and once that happens state will get a push for economic stability and cultural richness. He said her assurance for rehabilitation of families displaced after Kishen Ganga Project and about tunnel between Gurez and Bandipora has been received as a people-friendly measure in Bandipora.
Bhat said that it has been a misfortune of the state that due to instability and unrest most of the significant development projects do not get completed in targeted time and much of the resource gets wasted. Her personal concern will fill the gap, he hoped.
