NOWSHERA: Cautioning against the tendency of making LoC as a political theatre, National Conference Provincial President, Devender Singh Rana on Wednesday called for a collective strategy towards minimising sufferings of the border dwellers in the wake of condemnable shelling from across the border, saying this is a human problem that needs a humane approach.
“We urge all the political parties to rise above party politics and work towards seeking a safe, secured and better life for our border people, who remain at the receiving end whenever border skirmishes take place”, Rana said while interacting with the shelling victims in various camps in Nowshehra sector of Rajouri District during his extensive tour of the border areas, especially Nanyal, Jhangar and Pulkharni.
Rana was accompanied by State Vice President, Rattan Lal Gupta and Provincial Youth National Conference President, Ajaz Jan.
Rana pitched for residential plots for the vulnerable border families in safer areas apart from a massive recruitment drive for the youth, hoping that all political parties would join this effort of pushing the case before the Centre. “Instead of playing politics, blaming each other or indulging in rhetoric, let us show some empathy to the victims who seem to have lost the hope”, he said, adding that this is bare minimum the border people must be expecting from the political class.
He regretted that the Governments at the Centre and in the State have not taken any initiative so far to allot five Marlas plots of land to the dwellers of the shelling prone forward areas besides bunkers for taking shelter in the event of exigencies. Calling for an end to perpetual border tensions, Rana said the pain and agony of the border people can neither be felt in New Delhi nor across the border. During his interaction with the terrified camp dwellers, Rana shared their agonies in the wake of poor facilities like boarding, lodging, medicare, health and hygiene, power and drinking water supply etcetera. He conveyed condolences to the families of those who lost their dear ones in the shelling and also enquired about the condition of those injured.
The delegation also visited the house of a family which lost its two members due to shelling the other-day.
The delegation also comprised Kuldeep Singh Jamwal, Anil Dhar, Shafayat Khan, Bhusan Uppal, Capt (Retd) Moti Ram, Vipan Pal Sharma, Sardar Nirman Singh, Vishu Pal Gupta, Jaswir Singh Chib, Nasar Ahmed, Kr Yashu Vardhan Singh, Fakeer Chand, Sadar Charan Singh, Bharat Bhusan Gupta, Shamsher Singh Chib, Pushpinder Chadda, Sadar Tarlochan Singh, Jatinder Singh Chib, Ch Jalaj Singh, Bindu Kumar, Bhuti Ram, Harjeet Kumar, Sourav Chowdhary and Abid Magray.
