Incumbent Govt devastated cooperative movement and public sector in J&K: Rattan Lal Gupta

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Nov, 15 : Contrary to rhetoric of those sitting at the helm in J&K, the cooperative movement and public sector have been pushed to wall under the incumbent dispensation’s policy deficit over this vital sector.
This was said by Rattan Lal Gupta, Provincial President NC in a statement issued to media persons on Tuesday.
The senior NC leader said that no doubt that during the NC government’s tenures in the past, this cooperative movement has been given the much needed fillip and the same used to flourish across the length and breadth of the erstwhile state of J&K but the present government’s phlegmatic attitude towards this sector has forced the people associated with this sector to come on roads to seek justice as total apathy and least interest has been shown by the helmsmen towards growth of cooperatives in the region.
Rejecting the claims of LG adininstration that cooperative sector is playing a vital role in J&K, Rattan Lal Gupta said that the cooperative movement and public sector undertakings are badly suffering due to ill conceived policies of the present government and are on the verge of extinction. He said that earlier cooperatives and public sector undertakings were booming in the region but the directionless policies and vested interests have forced these two entities to go into state of oblivion and if the things will be allowed to go in the same direction sooner than later the cooperatives and the public sector entities will become things of the past.
The NC stalwart said that the JKFED was in profit before this dispensation took over the reins as it directly deals with farmers as far as seeds, fertilizers and other farming equipmens and marketing of foodgrains were concerned but the present regime has decimated its relevance leading to the end of its existence.
“The employees of JKFED are on roads, Cooperative Banks are facing abysmal condition due to government indifference as those sitting at helm have stopped the budgetary support for these banks.
The Marketing Societies, which used to be the significant link between farmers and governments as far as provision of seeds, fertilizers and other farming equipments were concerned are today defunct and derailed and the same is prevailing in case of Jammu Kashmir Cement Limited, which was premier cement factories which were profit making Public sector undertaking and it was second largest tax paying company after J&K Bank. Over 400 employees of this company are on roads with no perks and their families are on the verge of starvation”, Rattan Lal said, adding that the SICOPand JK Joinery are on the same pedestal and can see closure anytime. Under such a situation, he said, the government’s claim of flourishing cooperatives is nothing but an attempt to fool the people by simply giving lip service because the reality is totally in contrast to what has been presented before the people.
The Provincial President said that the time has come when the people should bring the change in the region by giving full majority to the National Conference in the upcoming polls and teach a lesson to those who are backing the LG’s administration overtly or covertly as it is anyone’s guess that who is steering the dispensation in J&K.
