STATE TIMES NEWS POONCH: Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) Chief GA Mir on Monday alleged that Rajouri-Poonch areas faced severe discrimination under previous Coalition Government. Addressing party workers at Surankote, Mir castigated the previous Government for ignoring the border districts. They completely failed on its agendas of development. He said Surankote is far behind in the field of education. The Education Department was doing nothing in this regard. He also criticised the previous Ministry of Youth, Services and Sports as there is not a single playground for youth in Surankote area. He said the drug menace is the biggest problem which we are facing today. Our youth are being spoiled by the drug mafia in the whole region. Their energy is not being channelised in the right direction. PDP-BJP made anti-youth policies and breached the trust of people of the State. Mir said Congress alone can ensure equitable development in all three regions of the State while keeping a close focus on neglected, remote and backward areas. Mir was accompanied by vice president JKPCC Mula Ram, Manmohan Singh and MLA Surankote Choudhary Mohammad Akram.
