Work for JK’s economic independence: DPN to politicians
Srinagar, June 4: Democratic Party (Nationalist) Provincial Executive Committee today unanimously resolved that it was the collective responsibility of all the shades of politicians to develop a viable thought that could lead our State to economic independence.
“In a fast developing world, socio-economic empowerment of Kashmiri people is over due. If they do not get it now the blame squarely lies with the local political leadership,” the participants said during a meeting of Committee members held here with its president, Ghulam Hassan Mir in chair.
The participants said it was need of the hour for all political parties to come forward and re-strategize in way that the people of J&K may come out of the trap of death, destruction and poverty.
The Committee, DPN statement said, resolved to continue with its political activities more devotedly because conducting of organizational programmes across the State during last one and half year had given a ray of hope to the youth of the State while they “had found a ray of hope in the party’s political thought and ideology.” “Youth are particularly finding our political thought more appropriate and straightforward for securing a bright future for themselves.”
The Committee members congratulated the people of J&K for enthusiastically participating in the Panchayat elections and urged the Government and the political parties to empower newly elected Panchayat members so that people’s confidence in democracy and democratic institutions gets reinforced.
DPN asked the Government to ensure that the executive and bureaucracy of the State should not become hurdle in transferring the power to Panchayats in its real sense.
“No other existing democratic institution judiciary or media included shall undermine the credibility of people’s institutions like Panchayat or local bodies; but our collective endeavour shall be to empower this vital democratic institution in a real and truthful manner.”
The Committee urged the newly elected Panches to shoulder their responsibilities in a fair manner as the people have reposed the trust on them.
Congratulating the Government for conducting free and fair Panchayat polls, DPN urged the State Government that municipal and local bodies elections should also be conducted at an earliest in same way so that our urban areas also get duly elected competent and committed representatives for upgrading the urban facilities on modern lines.
DPN reiterated its resolve that the State has the vast potential of natural resources, but investors find it difficult to put a take in our State primarily because of hiccups in the environment of the peace and also because of stiff legal, bureaucratic and official processes and procedures to start new businesses here. “To tap these resources and thereby improve the job opportunities available to our youth, we need to do a way all these bottle necks and build a investor friendly environment as early as possible.”
Referring to frequent complaints of people across the State regarding scarcity of rations, DPN proposed that the Panches be involved to streamline the PDS system.
The Executive body of the party appealed to the Government to provide relief to the affected farmers and orchardists of Kupwara, Handwara, Pulwama, Islamabad (Anantnag) and Baramulla whose horticulture and agricultural crops where damaged due to frequent hail storm during last few weeks. The party demanded that the crop insurance scheme already in vogue in the State should be strengthened more to cover all agriculture and horticulture crops under this ambit.
Senior Vice President, G M Bawan; Provincial President (Kashmir) Dr. Syed Safdar; State Secretary, Nazir Ahmed Wani, Youth leader, Muzzaffar Ahmed; Women’s President, Masrat Qadri and all District Presidents from Kashmir spoke on the occasion.
