Provincial President National Conference, Devender Singh Rana on Sunday asked PDP-BJP Government to spell out measures taken to provide succour to flood sufferers which they had promised and made main plank during elections.

"The sufferers have neither been compensated nor any major initiative taken to restore infrastructure damaged due to floods and landslides," Rana said while interacting with people during his extensive visit of the Nagrota Assembly Constituency, adding that the farmers are yet to be compensated for loss of crops in the wake of weather fury".

Rana expressed anguish and dismay over stopping free rations to the sufferers and taking concrete step to provide succor to farming community. 

Regarding road network and damaged culverts, Rana said the government has not been attending to very basics, least to speak of initiating further development. He said the condition of pumping stations is worse due to which the farming community was suffering immensely on account of irrigation to their land holdings. Similarly, hand pumps and water pipes remain disrupted as a result of which drinking water facility has been badly hit, he added.
