Early Times Report

JAMMU, Apr 3: Senior Congress leader and former minister Jugal Kishore Sharma has urged the J&K Union Territory Government to ensure adequate supply of essential commodities especially in rural areas and remote villages of district Reasi during the ongoing 21-day long lockdown.
In a press statement issued here today, Jugal Kishore Sharma said that the people residing in hilly terrain of district Reasi are on the verge of starvation as the supply of food grains and other essential commodities have been badly hit by the restrictions imposed amid lockdown.
Sharma said that there is hardly any ration left in the Public Distribution Stores in district Reasi particularly in far-flung areas like Bhamag, Mahore and Gool-Gulabgarh due to which the local population is under lot of distress adding that people are almost starving and there is urgent need to ensure that supply of ration in these remote areas takes place without any interruptions.
He said that several Sarpanchs-Panchs and local residents of these far-off rural pockets have informed him that there is acute shortage of essential commodities. He said that supply as well as distribution of ration among the people in rural areas should be expedited.
Sharma further said that the issue of local labourers working in and around Katra town as well as in Pouni need to be looked into sympathetically by the government as they have been facing several hardships in the wake of lockdown.
Referring to the domicile order issued by the BJP-led NDA government, Jugal Kishore criticized the decision and said that the step taken by the central government is yet another betrayal with the people of J&K.
Sharma said that it has proved that the BJP has no consideration for the aspiration of J&K people adding that the saffron party has tried to hoodwink the youth of J&K. He said that the provision made for recruitment process to government jobs in J&K is nothing more than a cruel joke with rights of local youth as only Level-4 posts of Junior Assistants, peons and constables in police have been reserved for the domiciles of the Union Territory.
Sharma while questioning the timing of the order said that it is strange when the entire country including J&K is under so much of agony due to the threat posed by the coronavirus outbreak then what prompted the Union Government to issue it in so much of haste.
