People want better roads, jobs not wine and cinemas: Vakil to Govt

Set up priories on demand basis

Srinagar, June 22 (KNS): Senior Vice President Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Conference and Former Minister Abdul Gani Vakil on Monday hit out at the present govt for it's priorities of opening cinemas and wine shops while overlooking the areas that can uplift lives of people.

According to statement issue to KNS , Vakil said it was very surprising to see at the priorities of the present regime. "Is opening of wine shops and cinemas a road towards Development of Jammu and Kashmir? Where are the jobs for youth, industrial Sector, and other thematic areas in Skill Development."

Vakil questioned the govt what makes them to ensure delivery of wine in every nook and corner of the region. "People demand employment, better roads, electricity, dignified life and you are trying to serve liquor in J&K a place of Rishi’s, Munis and saints . This is a shameful precedence being adopted by the non elected govt of the day," Vakil added.

Promoting liquor and opening multiplex cinemas is no road to development but it will deteriorate the religious and cultural fabric of this region. Vakil said.

"You have shut down the 4G internet services leaving thousands of professional youth who hadset up their software parks jobless. And now instead of helping then to cope up the losses and facilitate Employment options, your priority is wine and cinemas," Vakil added.(KNS)
