Congress blames govt for neglecting Gujjars, Bakerwals
JAMMU, Mar 14: Congress accused PDP- BJP govt of neglecting development of Gujjar, Bakerwal Communities merely on political lines, as the developmental schemes for upliftment of these poor people are not being executed properly anywhere in the state, with the result these people are being made to suffer for no fault of theirs.

This was stated by J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President GA Mir.

Mir said that coalition govt led by PDP is depriving the Gujjar Bakerwals of their basic rights, as the funds for the development of the communities stands unutilized with result the developmental schemes for the community have suffered immensely, it seems that PDP BJP Coalition are not taking their welfare as seriously, he said.

The negligence towards these down trodden and backward population of the State tantamounts to punishing them on political lines, which is not only unfortunate, but highly condemnable and unacceptable. He described the approach of the Govt towards this these people as halfhearted, G.A. Mir said.

Mir added that even the funds allocated to Gujjar Bakerwal Corporation stands unutilized, as reported, for the reasons known to the Chairman of this corporation, who happens to the Chief Minister of this State.

He said when a Corporation which is under the control of Chief Minister was not able to utilize the funds allocated, what would be the fate of other Corporation, this is somethings which needs to debated and discussed, for the fact, such type of attitude affects the development of backward population, who is a poorest of the poor, living below poverty lines.

GA Mir urged upon the Govt to take effective measures and ensure that development of Gujjars, Bakerwals and other backward classes of the State is not affected, for the fact, these people needs to be cared well.
