After failing to get things done PDP MLC launches
Funds under AMRUT scheme landed in selected pockets during PDP-BJP government

srinagar, Aug 7: Despite being in power for more than three and half years with Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) in Jammu & Kashmir, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) failed to improve the drainage system in the state more so in Kashmir valley.
Today on August 7, 2018, one was forced to laugh at a leader of PDP who castigated the Governor Narendra Nath Vohra led state administration after the valley especially the Srinagar city was hit by rainfall. While most of the areas were hit by rains this morning there were others where the rainfall started on Monday night.
As if the PDP had done wonders during its tenure the PDP leader took on the Vohra led administration vis-à-vis inundation of areas in Srinagar, summer capital of Jammu & Kashmir. The PDP leader who is a member of upper house of state legislature issued a statement in which he took a dig at the state administration over the water logging issue.
"The PDP legislator who is infamous for scams during his government service is trying to shield the failures of his own government by putting blame on Governor led administration with regards to inundation of Srinagar areas due to rainfall. Had the PDP-BJP government been serious it would have solved the drainage issues of Jammu and Srinagar cities," said a group of people while sharing views with Early Times.
People as a whole say the previous PDP-BJP government despite getting huge funds under the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) scheme failed to improve the overall landscape of the two capital cities of Jammu & Kashmir. The money they alleged landed in pockets of few with very little being spent on the urban transformation of Srinagar and Jammu.
"The benefits of AMRUT scheme have failed to trickle down to the grassroots level in Jammu & Kashmir. It is due to this reason that most of the areas of capital cities of state get inundated as and when few drops of rain come down from the heaven. The PDP-BJP government was no different from National Conference-Congress government that also ditched the people in this regard," said the group of people.
The people said that over the years' absence of robust and strong drainage and sewage network has complicated the problems of people living at Jammu and Srinagar. They demanded that Governor should order a probe in the messy state of affairs with regards to drainage system and fix the responsibility on politicians and officials responsible for the mess.
The AMRUT scheme was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in June 2015 with the focus to establish infrastructure that could ensure adequate robust sewage networks and water supply for urban transformation by implementing urban revival projects. The scheme is dependent with public private partnership (PPP) model.
If required, various other schemes like Swachh Bharat Mission, Housing for All 2022, along with the local state schemes like that related to water supply and sewerage and other infrastructure related schemes can be linked to AMRUT.
