The State BJP express serious concern about the overall failure of the State Government and Civil Administration in dealing with the catastrophe as a result of recent unprecedented floods in the State of J&K.
Sunil Sethi said that with all senior Ministers having left Kashmir for safer places, the people are feeling cheated and abandoned and as such there is large scale discontentment amongst the people on the governance. Even the senior bureaucrats are not to be found at their headquarters and have taken recourse to leaving their respective departments headless while moving out of Kashmir and by camaflaouging that the operations are overseen by them from the safer places at Jammu, which will be practically impossible. It is dismaying that the ship of governance has been abandoned by its captain and the lower staff which are engaged in some sort of rescue to bare minimum are also dis-heartened and clueless about what has to be done.
Sunil Sethi also stated that while all efforts are being done to provide relief and evacuation to the flood victims in Kashmir valley, the first sufferers of floods in Jammu province and more so in far flung areas of Jammu, are not getting the attention which they need in rescue and rehabilitation. There are disturbing reports coming from far flung areas of Jammu province where floods and the resultant land slides have caused havoc to the lives and properties of the people who are also required to be protected and saved on equal footing.
Sethi impressed upon the government to take effective measures as a large number of people may be migrating from affected areas of the state to Jammu, where the basic infrastructure and related facilities are not available to accommodate thousands of people and hence preparations in this regard need to be made in advance.
