STATE TIMES NEWS
JAMMU: Priority of government should be people and not politics or power and should spend every day in mitigating the sufferings of the people.
This was stated by former Minister and senior Congress leader, Raman Bhalla while addressing a public meeting here at Govind Nagar, Digiana. He asked administration to reach out to the people and focus on development and good governance. He called for judicious use of the existing manpower and its capacity building to ensure better delivery of services.
“Government should focus on expediting development, ensuring good governance and providing a hassle-free administration,” Bhalla said adding that government lacks insight into the governance initiatives and good practices.
Bhalla said that he was not satisfied with the present pace of delivery as there is huge gap in decision-taking and implementation on the ground. “Adequate resources are available both through the State Plan and Centre’s Development Programme. Only thing is to spend this money effectively and within the set time-frame,” Bhalla added. “The credibility of the PDP-BJP Coalition Government in J and K is at stake due to its failure on all fronts,” Bhalla said while reacting over surfacing of the picture of the Chairperson of Radical Women’s Outfit Dukhtaran-e-Millat Asiya Andrabi in a poster of ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ campaign which he termed major embarrassment to coalition Government especially BJP which considers itself only nationalistic party and its leaders as the lone nationalists. “The Asiya Andrabi incident seems deliberate attempt to disturb peace and also disrespect to other distinguished ladies in poster. Those behind this mischievous act must be booked immediately,” he said.
“There seems a race between BJP and PDP to prove who among them is more loyal and concerned for separatists and anti-national dispensations,” he added. Bhalla said people have lot of expectations from the present Government and it is the responsibility of the government functionaries to come upto their expectations.
