Work for peace, dev of JK: Speaker
Bandipora, Jan 9: Assembly speaker, Muhammad Akbar Lone today urged the people to rise above the political affiliations and ideologies and work with the government to ensure peace and development in all the three regions of the State.
“We are advocating the politics of peace and development, so people should rise above the party politics and work jointly for the development and welfare of the state,” he said while addressing various gatherings in Hajin township of Bandipora on Sunday.
“It is unfortunate that certain elements are hell bent upon disturbing the peace and are causing discomfort to the people, but our Government under the chief ministership of Omar Abdullah is fighting these forces politically and administratively and shall not let their nefarious designs succeed,” he said.
He reiterated governments resolve to ensure equitable development of all the three regions adding that several measures for providing basic amenities like health, education, power, road connectivity and drinking water to the people had been initiated. Referring to unemployment, Lone said the government had already introduced Sher-i-Kashmir Employment Welfare Package, which would go a long way in tackling the challenge of unemployment.
“Our government has understood the aspirations of the youth of Jammu and Kashmir. We have a vision for the youth and are committed to them. The government has formulated the programme to address the youth related issues especially the unemployment,” Lone said.
He appealed to the educated youth to come forward and avail the benefits of this package. He said the employment and counseling department were conducting employment fairs across the state to apprise the educated youth about various schemes introduced in the employment package.
Our youth have grown under the shadow of the gun and we cannot allow it to go on,” Lone said.
Later, Lone laid foundation stone for primary health centre at Madwan and Community Health Centre being constructed Jammu and Kashmir Housing Board.
Lone said Rs. one crore would be released for constructing the protection bund on the Jhelum near Hajan market which was damaged during the July floods.
He said the proposal for setting up of Women’s College in Hajan was under the consideration of government.
Lone assured people that their grievance would be redressed at an earliest.
