REASI: Launching a scathing attack on the State Coalition Government, senior Congress leader and Ex-Minister Jugal Kishore Sharma on Sunday accused the present dispensation of weakening the Panchayati Raj Institutions in the State.
Jugal Kishore Sharma said this while addressing a workers’ meeting held today at Block Pouni of district Reasi.
Speaking on the occasion, Jugal Kishore blamed the present government for weakening the Panchayati Raj Institutions and said that indirect elections of Sarpanchs will snatch power from general public.
Jugal Kishore said that there is no process of electing indirect Sarpanchs in the entire country except J&K where the BJP- PDP Government is misleading the people of rural areas.
While addressing the Ex-Panchs and Sarpanchs, Jugal Kishore called upon them to gear up for the upcoming Panchayat elections whether it is held directly or indirectly and asked them to aware general public about the wrong policies of the State Government. Block Pouni Committee for Rajiv Gandhi Panchayati Raj Sangathan was also framed on the occasion.
Sharma further said that the establishment of Government Degree Colleges at Katra, Pouni and Bhamag is a very old and popular demand of the people of these areas.
“We raised the demand of opening Degree Colleges at Katra, Pouni and Bhamag from time to time but the State Government turned a deaf ear to a very genuine demand of the people. We sought to know from the government whether it intends to open degree colleges there or not particularly here at Pouni, where resentment among the locals is fast brewing due to the delay in opening up a college. If ignored further the people may come on streets to raise the voice of protest,” said Sharma.
Those were present in the meeting included Block President Congress Pouni Ajit Kesar, Ex- Assembly President Amit Sharma, Convenor RGPRS Jagdish Sharma and others.
