Jammu, November 05: People’s Action & Public Accountability (PAPA) on Thursday alleged the Deputy Chief Minister of misleading the public with the help of corrupt agencies and causing a huge loss to the nation’s wealth.
PAPA was commenting on the Deputy Chief Minister directions for speedy developmental works during a ERA organized function for handing over its three projects to Srinagar Municipal Corporation. It said that the government funds managed through Asian Development Bank (ADB) are being misused in absence of an appropriate planning of state government’s agency ERA in the name of sewerage and drains.
PAPA said that defunct sewerage system constructed by ERA is constantly facing collapsing trend even before its start. Also, there are some big city drains which are left uncared for and that there are apprehensions of complete choking and collapsing of these drains. This shows the careless attitude of both state government and ERA.
Similarly, municipal authorities related building plans are failures on different levels and this shows that the authorities are non-serious about needed alert towards approval & implementation, PAPA alleged.
