NC lashes out at its MP

Rattanpuri Fond Of ‘Cheap Publicity’: Mubarak Gul


Jammu, Jan 3: Indicating that National Conference (NC) regrets its decision of giving entry to broadcaster-turned-politician Ghulam Nabi Rattanpuri in the party fold, senior NC leader and Advisor to Chief Minister Mubarak Gul Thursday said Rattanpuri shouldn’t try to “hunt with the hound and run with the hare.”
 Terming Rattanpuri’s statement, wherein he hit out at the state government and the police, a “tactics to gain cheap publicity”, Gul said Rattanpuri was a newcomer in politics and NC reposed faith in him. “Don’t make us repent on our decision”, Gul said.
 Rattanpuri on Wednesday issued a hard-hitting statement accusing Omar Abdullah-led government on one hand of neglecting Pulwama in development while on the other he launched scathing attack on the police accusing the cops of letting “loose a rein of terror in the area.”
 In a statement circulated by the state’s Information Department, Gul said Rattanpuri’s remarks reflect the gulf between the Member Parliament and the people of Pulwama.
 Enumerating the works done in district Pulwama by the present government, Gul said the District Plan which was fixed at Rs 52.64 crore in 2009-10 was enhanced to Rs 61 crore besides the additionality of about Rs 6 crore was given by the Chief Minister. He said the District Plan of Rs 63.68 in 2010-11 was upgraded by additionality of Rs 6.27 crore. He said the District Plan for 2011-12 was fixed at Rs 72.84 crore and additionality of about Rs 2 crores was also approved. He said the current year’s District Plan for Pulwama has been fixed at Rs 76.50 crore.
 He said during last four years Rs 118.82 crore were spent in Pulwama in R&B sector while 70 schemes are under execution under NABARD at a cost of Rs 178.82 crore.
 Gul said 84 new primary schools have been opened in the district besides upgrading 93 primary schools and 15 middle schools. “As many as 354 ReTs have been engaged in the district while 169 primary school buildings, 32 middle schools and 226 additional class rooms have been constructed,” he said.
 Gul said 23 PHE schemes have been completed out of the 90 schemes under execution in the district besides drilling 427 hand pumps.
 He said three Sub-District Hospital at Tral, Rajpora and Pampore are under execution while SDH Rajpora and Tral will be commissioned next year and IDP and Emergency blocks of district hospital Pulwama are under completion.
 He said that over 370 works have been completed under MGNREGA in the district generating 361570 mandays of work.           
 Gul said in Power Development sector more than Rs 2.51 crore were spent during the current year. 
 He also mentioned the assistance provided by the government to the Awantipora Islamic University for its strengthening and growth.
 The Advisor to CM said the list of works done in the district is too long to be enumerated in short space. “Rattanpuri should get a copy of complete list of works executed in the district during the last four years for his ready reference,” he said.
