Jammu and Kashmir seems a least priority state for Union government

Srinagar, May 3: Voicing his serious concern over the economic crisis facing Jammu and Kashmir, CPI (M) senior leader and MLA Kulgam has said that the union government’s cold shoulder approach towards proposed flood rehabilitation package has further added to gravity of the situation.

“There was a perception that this crisis will be overcome only once the new Government will be in place and the issue will be taken up at highest level with the Government of India but unfortunately the same has proven a hoax,” Tarigami said while referring to the massive damages caused by the floods and the helplessness of the state government to go for restoration works across the State.

Tarigami said that the financial mess in the State is to a large extent a creation of the central government which has virtually stopped flow of funds to the state government. “It seems Jammu and Kashmir has become a least priority state for the government of India and that is why even after eight months the State government’s post flood rehabilitation package is still gathering dust in New Delhi,” Tarigami stated further.
