Reviews working of PRIs in Dooru Anantnag, seeks release of allocated funds

Srinagar, Nov 13 (KNS): Stating that PRIs were not being allowed to function, J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President Ghulam Ahmad Mir on Saturday said that mere tall claims on account of developmental works won’t yield any results.

Mir further said there was a need to transform the Government decisions into reality and implement them on the ground.

JKPCC President Ghulam Ahmad Mir made these comments while reviewing the functioning of PRIs in Dooru area of Anantnag District and lashed out at the administration for not allowing Panchayats to work.

After reviewing the ongoing works and functioning of PRIs, JKPCC President Ghulam Ahmad Mir interacted with the Sarpanchs and Panchs in a largely attended function, who apprised him that despite putting in requisite papers with regard to release of funds for execution of developmental works in their respective Panchayat halqas, the administration was adopting dilly dallying tactics on account of release of allocated funds, which was detrimental to the functioning of PRIs and developmental process, at grass roots.

JKPCC President also reviewed the work done with Panchs and Sarpanchs in their respective panchayat halqas and also received feedback on the works to be executed.

On this occasion, Ghulam Ahmad Mir lashed out at the administration for not cooperating with the PRIs, which amounts to undermining the Panchayat Bodies and urged the Govt to take immediate measures to restore confidence among the Panchayat representatives, enabling them to perform the duty for which they have been chosen, as that, the PRIs hold the key  to development at grass roots, they need to be encouraged and facilitated to perform their duty in the larger interests of developmental of people.

JKPCC President expressed serious concern over the poor functioning of PRIs and urged the Govt to ensure that administration extends full cooperation to Sarpanchs and Panchs on account of release of funds and execution of works at appropriate time.

“LG J&K must intervene and ensure that PRIs, which were mandated to play key role in the developmental process further strengthened in the larger interest of people,” JKPCC President added and also urged the Sarpanchs and Panchs to remain committed to the cause of serving people in their respective Panchayat halqas.

On this occasion senior party leaders, DDC members, Block Presidents and others were present. (KNS)
