STATE TIMES NEWSNOWSHERA: Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY), the flagship scheme of the Modi government that offers a free gas connection to Below Poverty Line (BPL) families, is facing glitches in Panchayat Bagnoti of Nowshera Tehsil of Rajouri district, with thousands of families denied its benefits due to administrative failure.This was stated by Sarpanch Panchayat Bagnoti, Sangeeta Sharma while listening to the grievances of people of the Panchayat during her mass contact programme here today.Sangeeta said, “Ujjawala Yojana launched by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi with an aim to provide succour to the women especially residing in rural areas but it’s unfortunate to say that there are several families who are still deprived of PM’s flagship scheme due to failure of authorities concerned. She asserted that after more than 73 years of Independence women are still using fuelwood and dung cake for cooking food. She also held the local distributor of Bharat Gas responsible for the unsuccessful PM’s flagship scheme.Sangeeta expressed resentment against the Government for not showing its concern towards the basic amenities of the public hence adding to their sufferings. She asserted that the demands of people are being continuously ignored by the government administration at different fronts despite pleads and appeals. She added that the demands of common masses are not being fulfilled by the administration as the central sponsored schemes for the public good do not reach out to the masses.“Continuous failure of government at various fronts has added to the sufferings of the people amid global pandemic. The developmental projects started years back have been left after half completion at various areas of the Bagnoti Panchayat apart from Jammu division,” she said.She raised serious concern over the non-functioning of dug wells in Bagnoti Panchayat. Four Dugwell have been constructed to resolve the water scarcity in these areas and due to non availability of motors and pipes the aforesaid dug wells are of no use to the public, Sangeeta said and termed it as ‘unfortunate’.“Lakhs of rupees were spent to construct the dug wells and make them functional but due to non availability of required equipment people are deprived of the facility,” Sangeeta said. Besides the other issues, she said that people have been suffering due to shortage and unscheduled power cuts in the areas. Sarpanch Sangeeta appealed to the J&K UT administration to resolve the issues of the public and urged it to address the demands of suffering masses at the earliest.
