STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Flaying Union Government as well as J&K administration for their callous and adamant attitude towards consumers /general public, Convener J&K RTI Cell, JKPCC Advocate Bhavishya Sudan on Saturday demanded establishment/restoration of Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission and District Consumer Forums, as working in erstwhile State of Jammu & Kashmir. In a press statement issued here, Sudan said that since demotion of J&K State into two union territories, the present dispensation is treating people of J&K as urchins. “Successive Governments were much better than present regime as no right of consumers was vitiated in their regime including Congress, but when the present dispensation came to power it made erstwhile J&K State a hell by imposing one after another unfavourable/ anti-people policies and orders,” he asserted. Sudan further said, “I had approached various authorities including LG, Secretary to Government Department of FCS&CA and even Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan through detailed representation for seeking their kind intervention in establishment/restoration of Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission and District Consumer Forums in newly created Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir, but till date nothing has been done in this regard.” He further said that after demotion of erstwhile J&K State into Union Territories, many laws have been diluted and several commissions have been abolished including Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission and District Consumer Forums. “People are facing a number of hardships as they have no commission/forum for redressal of their grievances. There were a number of complaints which were pending for adjudication before the Consumer Redressal Commission as well as District consumer Forum at the time of reorganisation of Jammu & Kashmir and many files for execution were also pending, for which the awards have been already passed by the commission/Forums,” he added. Sudan urged the administration to restore authorities of consumers Redressal Commission at the earliest, failing which people would be forced to hit the roads for their basic rights.
