'Declaration of Jammu city as tail ender in Ease of living index unfortunate'
8/24/2018 10:25:08 PM
Early Times Report
JAMMU, Aug 24: With Jammu city figuring amongst the tail enders in the 'Ease of living Index' in the 2018 survey conducted by Union Urban Affairs Ministry, Harsh Dev Singh JKNPP Chairman and Former Minister today observed that that revelation has fully exposed all the haughty and supercilious claims made by the mandated leaders of Jammu. He pointed out that the ease of living index released by Union Housing and Urban Ministry last week had placed Jammu city at 95th place amongst the 111 cities whose survey was conducted by the Union Ministry. He said that the sensational disclosure had not come as unexpected in view of the extremely chaotic sewerage, drainage and development scenario in the city of temples. He was addressing well attended public meetings in New Plot and Pamposh Colony in Jammu West constituency today amidst massive public response.
Dubbing it as another shocker for the people of Jammu and an eye opener for the power intoxicated BJP leaders, Harsh Dev Singh regretted that the city of temples had been converted into a pit of garbage and the pathetic unhygienic condition of the city could only be attributed to the inefficiency and imbecility of the saffron leaders who were mandated to power by the people of Jammu Pradesh who had pinned high hopes from them. He said that earlier also a sensational disclosure was made by the Union H&UD Minister in 'Swach Sarvekshan-survey 2017' who had announced the results of the aforesaid survey on 4th May, 2017 at New Delhi, had exposed the state BJP leadership once again for its treacherous, deceitful character. "While Leh, Srinagar, Anantnag, etc were ranked higher in the said survey based on solid waste management including door to door collection, processing and disposal, ODF (open defecation free) status, Citizen feedback and independent observation, Jammu city was declared as dirtiest in the state despite the tall claims of the State Housing & Urban Development Minister and other Saffron leaders", dismayed Harsh added. He further expressed shock over the frequent media reports that 95 million litters of untreated sewage was dumped into River Tawi on daily basis but the concerned authorities were still unconcerned and unmoved.
