Jammu, September 21: It’s been over a year of devastating floods in the state but the centre still has failed to clear the picture on the announcement of a “financial package”, promised post floods last year. The two different views of both the coalition partners with no official word from the NDA Government at the Centre on the issue has confused the people of the state who are still waiting for their rehabilitation.
Both the coalition partners of the state government have two different statements on this issue. On one side PDP is criticising the centre government for not finalising anything about the package while the state BJP is constantly assuring the public that the package is likely to be announced soon.
Speaking to media fraternity, State’s Finance Minister, Dr Haseeb Drabu said that the state government after several rounds of discussions with the Centre, has provided all the necessary details to the concerned quarters in the desired format. It is now central government who is holding the announcement for reasons best known to them.
