JAMMU, Feb 19: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader Sunny Sangral today alleged that Samba constituency has been given raw deal in the recent announcement of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah of creating new administrative units.
He said that while new blocks has been created in the constituency, but now Naibats or tehsils have been given to the constituency, were people have to travel several kms to get even a simple work done.
He alleged that while the people across the state have welcomed the announcement of the National Conference-Congress government, but no time frame has been set, when these new units will start functioning and how the government will deal with the financial aspects.
“It seems like a election gimmick as no detailed answer has been given when the new units will start functioning. Regarding Samba, the area has not benefitted from the decision of the government as no new tehsil has been granted to the area”, Sangral said.
Further exposing the discriminatory attitude of the government and failure of local MLA, Yashpal Kundal to develop the tourist potential of Samba, Sangral said that no effort has been made by the government make Purmandal and shrine of Baba Gourn in Sumb to pilgrimage center.
“Purmandal and shrine of Baba Gourn attracts thousands of people daily but no efforts have been made to develop these shrines. Even the local people are quite angry over the apathetic attitude of the successive governments”, Sangral.
He said that its quite frustrating for the people that all the major government offices are far away from the villages and block offices of Purmandal are in Bari Brahmana, office of Education department is in Kunjwani, Social Welfare office is at Bari-Brahmna.
