GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Dec 26: The state secretary CPI (M), Muhammad Yousuf Tarigami today blamed the bureaucrats of ignoring the remote areas where according to him the “scarcity of food grains had reached an alarming situation.”
Concerned over the inadequacy of essentials, he said the senior bureaucrats “seldom go to the country-side to feel the alarming situation.”
“The administration in the valley seems to have gone into inertia following Durbar Move and the people are left to fend themselves under harsh winter and sub-zero temperatures.”
Tarigami urged the government to keep the essentials available to the consumers.
He said the power scenario in the state was worsening with consumers facing unscheduled power cuts.
Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party today held a demonstration at Ramban against the coalition’s failure to control prices of the essential commodities.
Addressing the protestors, party general secretary, Thakur Balbir Singh and secretary, Sayed Asgar Ali criticized the government for failing to solve peoples’ problems.
“The government has almost completed a year and during this period, Congress-National Conference regime has compounded the peoples’ woes by its anti-poor policies,” they said.
They demanded employment for Ramban youth in the ongoing hydro electric projects in the area.
Expressing concern over shortage of ration and other essential commodities in Ramban, they demanded that adequate ration should be dispatched to solve problems of masses.
