Early Times Report
JAMMU, Nov 10: Good relationship between Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC) and trader fraternity is a must for ensuring congenial atmosphere and betterment of society as whole in Jammu. At the outset Arun Gupta, President CCI during the interaction with Mayor Rajinder Sharma and Dy.Mayor Baldev Singh Billioria at Chamber House stated that there are certain issues which need kind attention of JMC authorities. At present whole Jammu City is beautified by constructing footpaths only due to which there is heavy congestion thus creating lot of problems rather than providing any help or relief to the public / traders of those areas.
Gupta further stated that in the areas where footpaths are constructed actually there is need of plantation to make those areas more beautiful.
Arun gupta said that it was observed that during the JMC officials' drive in the old city areas, they were in the practice of lifting the items of various traders, shopkeepers which one believe is not in good taste and when we look at the old cities of northern states there are no such drives exists by their respective Municipal corporations. We always believe and expect a conducive atmosphere for our traders to work, who are the backbone of our economy but these types of practices by the municipal corporation only discourages our traders .
Regarding Smart parking Arun Gupta said that we don't think that there is any need of providing such type of parking as on today nowhere in northern states such type of parking exists.
Arun also said it is imperative to mention that at present Dengu cases have spread all over Jammu and there is dire need to intensify fog drive to handle the current situation
Arun Gupta however appreciated the civic body for taking proactive steps to beautify the city of temples and also for ensuring extreme levels of cleanliness at all the markets and residential colonies. He said that Jammu will soon find a slot in the top list of cleanest cities in the country as JMC has been doing exemplary job in ensuring neatness and serenity. Earlier, CCI General Secretary Gaurav Gupta presented a welcome address and anticipated that the change in guard in JMC would act as a bridge between traders and the government, while ensuring progress in the efforts taken up by the civic body to make Jammu a better place to live.
Mayor Rajinder Sharma while responding to the demand of the CCI head, said that there is no valid reason for any kind of confrontation between JMC and the business class as both are interdependent on each other to ensure good for Jammu and its people. He said that JMC is looking forward to rope in business class for picking up the pace of development in the region through all kinds of help which the traders and industrialists can offer. He also said that we are on the job of making our corporation corruption free and if anybody is found involved in such type of activities, his place is either in Jammu District Jail at Amphalla or in Kot Balwal Jail. He further said that we will honestly work with the active cooperation of Chamber of Commerce & Industry Jammu.
Deputy Mayor batted for holding threadbare deliberations to remove grudges and ensure better ties between the two entities claiming that it is a must for the good of Jammu and its population. The vote of thanks was presented by the Vice President Rajeev Gupta, who said that the traders body has high hopes in the leadership of the new mayor and deputy Mayor.
