GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Mar 15: Minister for Finance A R Rather has said that under Prime Minister's Reconstruction Programme Rs 9904.19 crore have been expended for upgradation of infrastructure under various sectors up to January 2011 in J&K.
“Of this, Rs 3925.75 crore have been utilized for execution of the projects implemented by state government and Rs 4641.13 crore on the projects implemented through central executing agencies in the state.”
This, according to an official statement, was stated by the Minister in reply to a question by Harshdev Singh in the Legislative Assembly here today.
The Minister said that it is a fact that the cost of Prime Minister's Reconstruction Programme is revised with inclusion of some new works viz-a-viz revision in cost due the escalation and change in scope of works.
He said the implementation period for execution of the projects in the State under the programme has been extended up to the end of 11th Five Year Plan.
CM snubs Harshdev
Meanwhile, the Chief Minister also snubbed Harshdev for giving a “wrong impression that nothing was being done as far as development of the state was concerned.”
Raising a supplementary to his main question, Harshdev alleged that though the central had made liberal funding to the state by providing funds of Rs 32394.06 crore under revised PMRP, yet the government has spent Rs 9904.19 crore which he alleged was the “reflection of non-performance and work culture of the state government.”
He questioned how the government would spend whopping Rs 23,000 crore in one year as the Centre has fixed 2011-12 as deadline for the plan.
Reacting to his allegations, the Chief Minister said that Rs. 1470 crore project for Jammu and Rs. 1741 crore project for Srinagar have been shifted from PMRP to JNNURM and work on both the projects is going on apace.
The CM said the work on the establishment of 10 new degree colleges is also apace and State has taken up power projects with NHPC in joint venture.
“Don’t give an impression that nothing is being done on ground. This is totally wrong,” Omar remarked.
The Chief Minister said that State Government would take up the issue of extension of PMRP projects under State sector with the Union Government if need arises and for the projects under the Central sector the Union Government would take decision itself. He said work on PMRP projects is going on and “we are for accelerating the pace wherever required”.
