RAMNAGAR: Ridiculing the slogans of development, Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas and Achhe Din given by Central and State Governments over the last four years, Harsh Dev Singh, JKNPP Chairman and former Minister expressed grave concern over the pathetic plight of the people inhabiting the rural as well as urban areas of the State.
Addressing a public rally at Natha Singh Park here on Monday, Harsh said that during his tour of various Municipal wards of MC Ramnagar to take stock of the burning problems faced by the people, he discovered that the poor, indigent, deprived people were left at the mercy of God not only by the local administration but by the elected representatives as well.
Addressing the gathering, Singh came down heavily on the government for stalled development in Ramnagar resulting in widespread public resentment. He said that while no new developmental project had been initiated in the constituency during the last four years, the on-going schemes had come to a grinding halt.
Making a particular mention of the university satellite campus at Dalsar Ramnagar whose 95 per cent construction work had been completed by the end of 2014, he regretted the abandonment of the project immediately after the change of guard.
He said that similar was the fate of Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) sanctioned for Ramnagar under the aegis of Agricultural University during 2013 and ITI approved for Ramnagar during the same period with no action taken during the last four years to operationalize the same.
Expressing grave concern over the deplorable plight of pot-holed and bumpy roads in various Municipal wards as well as in villages desperately crying for repairs, Singh lamented non initiation of any action for renovation of the same. He regretted that while the PWD Department officials had expressed inability to affect the major repairs due to funds constraints, the incumbent leadership had utterly failed to project the issue before the concerned authorities.
Maintaining that funds were never a problem during his tenure, Harsh claimed that he had got sanctioned the highest number of development projects including roads and bridges for his constituency during his tenure as MLA as compared to all others constituencies of the State. He however assured the public to agitate the matter of dilapidated road network before concerned authorities and to get the construction and repair works initiated at the earliest especially with regard to Ramnagar-Chowki road, Ramnagar-Basantgarh road, Rang-Blhand road, Ramnagar-Bhatyari road and Bainsta-Pinger road besides Tagan-Sattian road.
Commenting upon the degeneration in the power sector, Harsh expressed serious concern over the huge un-scheduled cuts, extremely low voltage problem and non repairs of transformers damaged for several weeks. He called for early installation of four transformers in Ramnagar town that were sanctioned way back in 2013-2014. Among those who spoke on the occasion include Manju Singh, Neelam Abrol, Kulbir Gupta, Pt. Shiv Ram Sharma, Dev Singh, Shiv Dev Singh, Pawan Dev, Rakesh Gupta, Dinesh, Happy, Pushpinder Singh, Akash Kharka, Uttam Singh and Sunil Sharma.
