Sadhotra seeks rollback of decision withdrawing Rs 81 Cr meant for PRIs

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Jan 18: One day convention of Jammu and Kashmir National Conference, Block Marh was held today at Akalpur under the presidentship of Captain Om Parkash. It was organized by Charanjeet Singh, Block President and Randhir Singh Chib, Senior Vice President of the Block.
Addressing the one day convention, former Minister and Senior National Conference leader Ajay Kumar Sadhotra today assailed the move of withdrawing Rs 81 Crores by the Jammu and Kashmir Government, allocated under 14th Finance Commission for Panchayati Raj Institutions. Describing the decision as Arbitrary and Anti-poor, Sadhotra said in a statement that this exposes the tall claims of the administration in strengthening the grass root level democratic Institutions and speaks volume about the concern for rural development.
"Day in and day out, the government has been trumpeting about rural empowerment through the PRIs but when it comes to delivery on ground, the action does not match words", he said and called for restoration of the funds so that the works proposed are taken up vigorously. Sadhotra also expressed surprise over the Anti-farmer directive issued by the National Highways Authority of India on January 13 barring the farming within 500 meter from both sides of the boundary of Jammu Ring Road Project / Bypass from Raya Morh to Jagati, falling in districts of Samba and Jammu. He described the order as draconian as it will terribly impact the farmers having very meager holdings. Farming being the only mainstay of the peasantry, barring farming in 500 meters will jeopardize the sustenance of thousands of families.
