JAMMU: Apni Party President Syed Mohammed Altaf Bukhari on Thursday said that the people of Jammu are unsatisfied with the casual approach of the authorities towards their basic issues.
He gave this statement during a ward wise review meeting of the Party leaders that was held here at Apni Party Office, Gandhi Nagar, Jammu ahead of upcoming Urban Local Body elections. The leaders expressed their concern over the poor implementation of the smart city project, improper drainage system that leads to water logging during rainfall in the main chowks, and low-lying residential areas falling under JMC. The Party leaders also informed the Party President about the failure of the authorities in providing basic amenities to the people in the Jammu municipal wards. While addressing the Party leaders, Bukhari said, “Apni Party will speak truth to the powers. Jammu has suffered badly because the authorities are working in a wayward manner without considering the worries of the common masses.”
Directing the Party leaders to get ready for Urban Local Body elections and Panchayati Raj elections, the Apni Party President hoped that the people would appreciate and support the work of the Party leaders by extending their support to the candidates.
“The ULB elections would be eye openers for those who claimed to be champion of Jammu because they have betrayed people, who voted them to power in 2014 in the erstwhile J&K. The people had hopes, but Jammu was deprived of basic amenities. The launch of Smart City Project had given hope for the people, but it appeared to have failed before its take-off,” he added.
He asked the Party leaders to visit each ward under Jammu Municipal Limits and other Municipal Committees across the Jammu Region to listen to the grievances of the masses.
