Follow people centric policies
10/21/2021 11:30:33 PM

The decisions taken by the Jammu and Kashmir administration during the past two years have disappointed the people.
National Conference President Dr Farooq Abdullah while addressing a party convention in Banihal recently made it explicitly clear that the government’s job is not to suppress the people.
The NC president asked the present dispensation to explain where are the jobs that were promised to people. He tried to send a message to the J&K government that it should follow the people centric policies rather than suppressing them.
After the abrogation of Article 370, people in Jammu are feeling that they are not being heard and the iron fist approach of the government has pushed them away from the system. The decisions that have been taken have hurt the interests of Jammu people and the bureaucrats seem in mood to pay any attention towards the issues being raised by the Jammuties.
A feeling has crept in among the nationalist people of Jammu region that they have been taken for granted and no one is interested in addressing their aspirations.
Recently, leaders of Yuva Rajput Sabha, addressed a news conference in Jammu and expressed resentment over the J&K Government not declaring a holiday on Maharaja Hari Singh’s birthday in the Union Territory. The Sabha has threatened to block the Tawi Bridge on Saturday (October 23) and stage protests against the aspirations of Jammu people being ignored.
Similarly, traders and businessmen are accusing the government of making their lives miserable and not allowing them to do business in ease. The present regime seems to be just focusing on outsiders and wants them to come and invest in J&K. This has led to the natives getting sidelined. The projects which the local firms could have handled have been passed to the outsiders. This has led to many firms becoming defunct.
Instead of providing jobs and creating new avenues the decisions taken by the helmsmen are adding to the unemployment. New Delhi needs to intervene and at least try to know what’s happening in J&K. A few bureaucrats are presenting a rosy picture but the ground situation is completely different from what’s being projected.
The Government of India needs to take the feedback from the people who are on the ground. NC President, Dr Farooq Abdullah, has started touring different areas and he has started to ask questions, which every nationalist leader needs to pose. The bureaucrats have to tell what they have done for the people of J&K. Making tall claims is not enough.
