Compromised governance and patronized corruption have led to people alienation in J&K: Harsh Dev

Early Times Report

Chenani, June 10: Alleging governance deficit and growing culture of corruption in J&K , the NPP President and former Minister Harsh Dev Singh that the erstwhile historical Dogra State was in ruins after its reorganization and demotion to the level of UTs. While there were no takers for the woes and sufferings of common masses, the saffron flavoured govt was persisting with its appeasement of a selected few resulting in disenchantment amongst the general public. He said that while BJP and its political affiliates were allowed to float above the fray and granted multifarious privileges and perks at govt expense in violation of norms and fair play, the commoners were made to suffer even for the basic amenities despite being major contributors to the State tax revenue. He was addressing public meetings in Gauri Kund and Katwalat in Chenani constituency today.
Coming down heavily on the LG administration for abusing the public exchequer in providing govt bungalows and palatial Estates mansions to the BJP workers in defiance of prevalent norms and court rulings while selectively hounding out the opposition leaders, Mr. Singh said that it provided the most glaring example of compromised governance and patronized corruption in J&K. Not only were the govt bungalows provided to the BJP leaders but the entire furniture, fixtures and other luxury items including smart TVs, refrigerators and electronic gadgets had been provided free of cost to the said illegal occupants. Likewise, govt vehicles had been placed at the disposal of ex-MLAs of BJP in addition to security vehicles provided exclusively to them to the exclusion of even the most senior opposition leaders. Not only that several BJP leaders who had encroached State lands, forest lands and Roshini lands not been evicted and allowed to retain the same while dispossessing the common masses and other poor farmers from their marginal land holdings.
Mr. Singh said BJP leaders further seemed to have been granted immunity in cases involving criminal misconduct and financial improprieties there by providing them a differential treatment as against the commoners who were made to bear the rigors of the law even on frivolous complaints.
Alleging governance fiasco and operation of rule of whim in J&K , Mr. Singh sought indulgence of the President of India so as to ensure the restoration of constitutional guarantees, equal treatment and justice to all in the troubled UT of J&K so as to prevent further alienation of the general masses. He called for an early return of democracy in J&K and restoration of its Statehood status.
