State Govt not doing enough for the flood victims: BJP
State Bharatiya Janata Party has criticized the lackadaisical and non performing approach of State coalition government in dealing with situation arising out of recent floods in the state. When the population across the state is suffering immensely the State Govt is not doing enough to mitigate the sufferings of the victims, and help them in rehabilitation.
Addressing media persons, party State Spokespersons Sunil Sethi (Senior Adv.) and Balbir Ram Rattan both took the govt to task for having surrendered to the situation and circumstances and leaving everything to the improvement of weather and rescue and relief efforts of army and public spirited persons. They commended role of Army and central govt in timely and untiring efforts to help victims when state govt has failed on all fronts.
Sunil Sethi further highlighted that untiring efforts are being made by state BJP in helping victims throughout the state and in this regards rescue and rehabilitation teams are working and performing to the satisfaction and expectations of the people. More than 40 trucks of relief material have been supplied to the affected areas in Jammu province and similar efforts are on in Kashmir province too. Because of the efforts of BJP, lot of aid and relief is being received from throughout the country by Party and is being distributed among affected families. Teams of BJP are working with dedication and commitment for the benefits of the victims, he said.
Sunil Sethi called upon all to join the BJP in its efforts to help the victims. He disclosed that the BJP State President & MP Jugal Kishore Sharma has also constituted a central committee of senior leaders to effectively control all efforts. Sunil Sethi further said that compensation being given by state govt is grossly inadequate and insufficient for the losses suffered by victims and the present slab of compensation is too less to help victims. He further demanded that alternative govt lands should be given to village Seri victims in Reasi for their rehabilitation and also to other areas where people have lost houses and fields, which had come under landslides and are not inhabitable now.
