Cong playing role of affectionate mother: Aijaz Khan
Usman rues lack of development in Bandipora
Kulhama (Bandipora), June 3: Stating that Congress is committed to uplift the downtrodden sections of the society Minister of State for Fisheries, Haj and Auqaaf, Aijaz Khan, on Sunday said that he would strive to uplift the fishermen community at micro and macro levels by introducing welfare and developmental activities throughout JK.
“Only the Congress party can alleviate the sufferings of underprivileged lot by playing the role of an affectionate mother. We have huge population of fishermen in the state and we are committed to uplift the community,” the Minister said while addressing a gathering at Kulhama here in north Kashmir.
“Congress and its member in the state have stood for the cause of the poor and under-privileged people,” he said, urging the people to stand by them.
“We will make all efforts to give benefits to the community in all respects like education and socio-economic aspects of life,” the Minster assured the gathering.
''Congress is acting as a mother for unprivileged who alone can provide warmth and care to the downtrodden sections,'' the Minster asserted.
While addressing the rally ex-Minster and senior Congress Leader Usman Majeed lashed out at the local representatives for being indifferent towards the Bandipora constituency.“Bandipora is lagging behind in very front, we have no roads, no communication even the water supply system is not working properly, people are facing hardships and government is acting as a mute spectator,” Usman said. “Fishermen community is the worst hit and is facing the brunt of negative politics.”
"This is unfortunate and not tolerable, Why discrimination with Bandipora? " he asked. “Our local representative has no time to address the problems. He is more worried about manipulations and wants to earn positive points from bureaucracy,” he alleged.
"There are some leaders in our area who claim to rake up issues concerning the people but are focused on spreading ill-will among different sections and are responsible for weakening the people of Bandipora,” he said, adding “Our MLA has achieved nothing other than the notoriety due to ill policies and anti people attitude,” Usman added.
