Governance, transparency, accountability missing in JK: Vakil

Baramulla, Nov 16: Former Minister and state Congress leader Abdul Gani Vakil today said that Congress party would neither be subservient and nor will prefer to work as B-team in the coalition government with National Conference (NC).
 “Congress will never compromise on issues like corruption and the question of accountability and will raise its voice besides will keeping strict vigil on mismanagement, callousness and maladministration,” Vakil said while addressing a rally organized by Youth Congress at Baramulla.
 Terming political situation in the State as uncertain where good governance, transparency and accountability are missing from the scene, he said the administration at the district level is behaving like a mute spectator rather than coming forward for addressing the grievances of the common masses. He said far flung and remote areas of the state have been neglected completely.
 Expressing concern over power and LPG crisis in the State, Vakil asked the government to initiate strict measures to curb black marketing of LPG cylinders which has flourished manifold during the recent past. He added that non-availability of LPG has directly affected the life of masses.
 Vakil expressed shock over the fact that Central Stores of Power Development Department (PDD) despite making purchases of poles, wires, conductors and transformers in abundance is still not allotting the same to its various Electric Divisions either because of red-tapism or political reservations.
