Centrally sponsored projects deliberately being delayed: PDP

Srinagar, Jun 30: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Lone Hanjura on Sunday toured various areas of Char-e-Sharief constituency, expressing concern over the inordinate delay being done in the implementation of the centrally sponsored schemes.
Hanjura also questioned government’s indifferent attitude towards the hardships being faced by the farmers in central Kashmir, stating that even as the repeated hailstorms and untimely rainfalls have wrecked havoc to the crops, the government hasn’t till date mitigated the losses incurred by the farmers. He said that such a delay being done in the disbursement of the relief is adding to the woes of the farming community, plunging them into crises and deep state of chaos.
The PDP General Secretary while meeting various peoples’ delegations in Char-e-Sharief also expressed grave concern over the delay being done in the implementation of the centrally sponsored developmental projects like CRF, NABARD and PMGSY.
He urged the governor to address the issue on priority and implement the projects that were approved by the PDP led government in the state. Hanjura further stated that the Prime Minister’s announcement of disbursing 6000 rupees in the accounts of farmers has not been implemented on ground, raising concerns over the veracity of the announcement.
He also stated that due to the paucity of doctors and other staff at PHC Chalyan, the local inhabitants are facing immense hardships and have to walk more than 25 kms to avail healthcare facilities. He urged the government address the issue without further delay and on priority.
