"Govt fails to resolve water crises in J&K"

The Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) has plans of highlighting the problems being faced by people in the state through demonstrations and rallies. Stating this the leader of the Panthers Party in the Assembly, Harsh Dev Singh, said that the ruling coalition of the National Conference and the Congress has been hit by inertia with the result basic problems of people were not being looked into. 
Harsh Dev said that the Government has not taken any immediate step for increasing drinking water supply to people in the Jammu region. He said it is amazing that successive state Governments had failed in resolving the drinking water scarcity even in the state's winter capital. He said that the state Government has equally failed in persuading the union Ministry of Urban Development in giving sanction to the two ambitious projects which could reduce the water scarcity problem in Jammu and Srinagar cities. He said that several months ago the state Government had submitted two schemes, one estimated to cost Rs.338.74 crores and the other Rs.535 crores for augmenting water supply in Srinagar and Jammu cities respectively. But so far there has been no word from the union Ministry. 
Harsh Dev said that since January last the ruling coalition has not initiated any measure for ameliorating the lot of people in the state. He said that the state had witnessed "paralysis" in the functioning of the administrative machinery. He alleged that peoples' cases kept on pending in different Government departments because of delay in ministerial sanction. He said that so long the size of the ministry was not increased work in Government offices and the civil secretariat would continue to suffer. He said the Panthers Party will agitate against these issues.
