State Times NewsJAMMU: Continuing his public outreach programme at Jammu, Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha on Tuesday met former Ministers, ex- Legislators, political leaders, and public delegations here and took stock of their concerning issues and grievances.Senior Journalist Daya Sagar also raised issues related to clarification on rules and eligibility for Domicile Certificate, reorganisation of district administrative units, payment of Rs 5.5 lakh for left out PoJK refugees, engagement of vacant positions in Medical Colleges and new Medical Colleges for Kathua, Rajouri, Doda, and Anantnag. The former Minister also demanded dedicated health facilities for Covid-19 patients.While discussing the Domicile of UT of J&K definition and rules for issue of Domicile Certificate, Daya Sagar requested Lt Governor to intervene for getting issued clarifications to the dealing officers as regards Permanent Resident of J&K Certificate holder ‘girl child’/woman married to a non permanent resident of J&K.He drew attention of Lt Governor towards the discriminatory service rules for new appointments in government.On the issue of Delimitation of Legislative Assembly of UT of J&K, Daya Sagar informed LG that the distant/backward areas of J&K falling particularly in the districts of Baramulla, Doda, Kishtwar, Udhampur, Kathua, Rajouri, Poonch and like have been so far denied due share in the legislature as well as local administration (Districts).The need for Reorganisation of District Administrative Units before Delimitation of single member Segments of the Legislative Assembly of UT of J&K was also explained stressing that in case J&K as is need for Delimitation of LA Segments before elections so is need for Reorganisation of Districts before Delimitation as otherwise the Delimitation commission will remain in illusion. LG assured the delegation for considering the suggestion.The issue of 5300 POJK DP( 1947 times) families well in record with J&K Government but staying in States other than J&K who have been denied assistance of Rs.5.5 Lakh as has been paid to those staying in J&K was explained also and the submission was very passionately taken by LG. Request was made including these families in the list of beneficiaries..It was conveyed that the Economic Package sanctioned on 19-09-2020 by LG is a welcome step for relief to the people of state who are under economic crisis due to Covid- 19. LG has been requested to also extend the economic relief in the water and electricity bills to individual family units / house holds as well. Similarly assistance of 50 % subsidy ( max Rs.5 Lakh) may kindly be extended to owners of load ( trucks) carriers also like bus owners for replacement of old vehicles. It has been also submitted that the culture of incharge promotions in departments must be checked and attention was particularly drawn towards SAC decision of 22-10-2019 ( where deadline was fixed as 30-11-2019 for settling huge bulk of promotions in PDD since 2001 beyond AEE level ) which has not been implemented yet and hence the cases of the retired PDD engineers be separated from the huge bulk of files so that they get the pension/ family pension for the post from which one retired. Shortfall in the available qualified para medical staff was also brought to the notice of LG for which one of the reasons was that BOPEE has not been able to handle the conduct of entrance examinations for the government as well as private colleges in a regular yearly schedule. The human resource / faculty requirements of New J&K Medical Colleges were also discussed suggesting that to provide with adequate experienced teachers and administration, recruitments if needed should be made by allowing people from outside J&K to also apply so that the quality of training to aspiring youth and the health cover that a medical college should provide is assured. .A delegation of Sikh Youth of Jammu & Kashmir led by Varinder Singh Sonu presented a memorandum for the inclusion of Punjabi as one of the official languages of J&K under the Official Language Bill 2020. Other members of the delegation included Kanwaljeet Singh, Adv Tanjeev Singh, Harvinder Singh, Yashpal Singh, and Singh. While interacting with the members of the delegations, the Lt Governor observed that various initiatives have been taken by the UT Government and many more are underway aiming at the holistic development of J&K. The results of the strenuous efforts of the UT Government are already visible on the ground as J&K is witnessing a new era of rapid and equitable development, he remarked. The Lt Governor also assured the delegations to review their genuine issues for early redressal and urged the former Ministers, former Legislators, and political leaders to continue their sustained efforts towards the welfare of the people at all fronts.
