Srinagar: National Conference Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani on Sunday said that the government has forgotten its responsibility towards the people of Kashmir.
He made these comments while addressing a series of meetings in Kupwara constituency. He said that a welfare government has to cushion the inability of citizens to provide for themselves, particularly in the vulnerable conditions of old age, sickness, disability and unemployment, a press note said.
“It is only NC that has the antidote to widespread challenges faced by our people in the shape of development deficit, administrative inertia and scathing unemployment. The much awaited administrative relief which our people are hankering for can only be provided by NC. There is a pressing need for the government to redefine its activities by prioritising welfarism to heal the ravages of post august, 2019 economic downturn and successive Covid induced lockdown,” he said.
Nasir said if NC is given a mandate to steer the administration of Jammu and Kashmir, it will render support to poor and vulnerable households on priority basis. "Ending miseries of our young educated and talented youth will be high on our agenda. Besides providing our youth a sense of security and belongingness, we will take drastic steps to increase employability in our region so that the disillusionment among them is tackled,” he said.
