Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) Thursday held an important meeting of Srinagar Party Corporators in Jammu and discussed threadbare, overall developmental scenario in City.
According to a statement issued to wire service the corporators briefed PCC President about the various issues of public importance.
J&KPCC President Ghulam Ahmad Mir, who presided over the meeting took stock of the overall developmental scenario in Srinagar, besides the work done by the Party Corporators in their respective wards, came under discussion.
The Corporators briefed the President about the difficulties confronting them due to lackadaisical attitude adopted by the Corporation, besides briefing the President about the step-motherly attitude that the Corporation has adopted towards them.
They said it seems the Corporation doesn’t want them (Congress Corporators) to function in a manner they should, and urged the President to intervene inorder to ensure that they are able to discharge their legitimate duties, besides enabling them to serve people for which they have been chosen.
Those who were part of the meeting include Shower Ahmad Kak, Basharat Bin Qadir, Shameema Khan, Sobee Jan, Naziya Yousuf, Haseena, Aijaz Rasool Bhat, Shafat Gaffer,Farooq Ahmad Dar, Shaheena Bhat, Zahoor Hussain Rather, Sara Bilal, Asif Ahmad Beigh, and Saida.
On this occasion senior party leaders G. M. Saroori, Haji Ab. Rashid Dar Vice Presidents and Surinder Singh Channi were also present.
Expressing serious concern, Mir described the attitude of the SMC towards Party Corporators as undemocratic, unethical and against the basic principles of public service, which will not be tolerated and shall be dealt sternly in a democratic manner, Mir said.
“Our Corporators have been elected by the people, despite the uncertainty and threat to their lives, Congress party fielded them in order to take the development at the door steps of Srinagarities, but it is very unfortunate to observe that they are being intimated, not being allowed to participate in the process of development, which is highly deplorable act on the part of Corporation,” Mir said.
Congress party understands that the Srinagar Municipal Corporation is being used as a political platform to settle political scores, which has to be contained, for the fact any democratic institutions in the Country or J&K meant to serve and strengthen people, not to play politics, Mir added and laid emphasizes over providing opportunities to Members.KNO
