Promise of first ‘Awaam ki Awaaz’ episode yet to be fulfilled
Arrogant Babus are a stumbling block in implementing LG’s visionary agenda at grassroots

Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 21: To directly connect with the masses to solve their problems, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha has started a pro-people “Awaam Ki Awaaz” programme similar to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’ in April 2021 but a coterie of Babus at the helm of the affairs appear to be the biggest stumbling block in translating LG’s vision to the reality.
Instead of facilitating the sincere efforts of Lieutenant Governor’s “Jan Bhagidari” in the governance process, this coterie of Babus is misleading him about the implementation of his visionary agenda at the ground level.
In the first episode of ‘Awaam Ki Awaaz’ on April 18, 2021, the Lieutenant Governor had promised to create job opportunities at the village level to stop migration from villages to cities. But, the same promise is yet to be fulfilled.
Those at the helm of the affairs appear to be adopting a callous approach towards solving vital issues like employment and providing basic amenities to the people.
Responding to the suggestion of Ramdev Sharma, a senior citizen from Jammu who had suggested the administration should further expand the work being done on village-centric policies, besides providing employment to youth of the village to stop their migration to the cities, the Lt Governor had maintained that the J&K Government has devised a plan for sustainable and stable development of villages. “Now, the development of the villages will be decided by the villagers themselves. This year, the funds allocation to Panchayats has also been doubled. I hope all the people will come together to formulate a people-centric development plan and work with full enthusiasm for the betterment of fellow citizens” , the Lt Governor had promised during the first episode of ‘Awaam Ki Awaaz’
This assurance was given on April 18, 2021, but till date, no comprehensive policy has been formulated in this regard.
Instead of formulating a comprehensive policy to address the problem of unemployment in rural areas, Babus at the helm of the affairs have taken some decision to render many youth jobless in both urban and rural areas of J&K.
