Srinagar: National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah on Saturday addressed a party convention at Damhal Handipora (D H Pora) in Noorabad assembly constituency and paid rich tributes to slain party leader Wali Mohammad Itoo on his 29th death anniversary.
According to a press note, addressing the convention Omar said that the administration is neglecting people's problems and busy pleasing few individuals. He added that the administration remains unconcerned about the problems faced by the people and that they are only busy pleasing a few individuals.
Pointing at the Gujarati conman posing as a PMO official, Omar said, "When our party functionaries seek security, they are denied. But when it comes to conmen posing as high flying officers in PMO, administration goes the extra mile in providing security to him.
This is the reality of this administration, it only wants to please a few individuals, not the people. When there is a popular government in place, the situation is altogether different. People's governments do not please a few individuals, they strive to please people,” he said.
Referring to the “unending strife of people of J&K due to inflation, unemployment, exorbitant taxation,” he said, “At a time when people are aggrieved due to price rise, and unemployment, the administration chose to further burden their pockets by imposing property tax. How can our people pay hefty property taxes, exorbitant electricity bills, when they aren't earning anything?”
"We were told that the decisions of August 05, 2019 will change the fate of Jammu and Kashmir. Where are those promised jobs, investments? We did not see any new hospital, lift irrigation, water supply scheme, college and health institution coming up,” he said adding, “Leave job orders, government is not able to come up with a selection list. Not even a day passes, when we don't hear about a selection list being scrapped."
