of Yasin Ma­lik and or­dered to keep him at cen­tral jail Sri­na­gar till 11th June 2016,” the spokesman JAMMU—Ridi­cul­ing the tall claims made by the state and cen­tral govern­ment on good gov­er­nance and ‘Achhe Din’, for­mer min­is­ter and Chair­man, JKNPP, Harsh Dev Singh Tues­day lam­basted the BJP lead­er­ship for sub­ject­ing the peo­ple to mis­eries in the wake of un­prece­dented power cuts in the re­gion.

In a press note is­sued here, Singh said that the mas­sive sched­uled and un­sched­uled power cuts have lit­er­ally sucked the life out of the peo­ple with no tak­ers for their woes.

He said that while the man­dated lead­ers of Jammu were re­joic­ing the cool breeze and rav­ish­ing am­bi­ence of Kash­mir re­sorts, the peo­ple of Jammu es­pe­cially the aged, ail­ing and the chil­dren are hav­ing the night­mar­ish ex­pe­ri­ences of the much pro­claimed ‘Achhe Din’ of the BJP part­nered govern­ment.

Harsh Dev Singh Said that the un­prece­dented power cri­sis dur­ing scorch­ing sum­mer has thrown life out of gear in both ur­ban and ru­ral ar­eas.

He re­gret­ted that de­spite the pa­thetic plight of the peo­ple, the elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives had failed to ef­fec­tively pro­ject their con­cerns in the As­sem­bly.

He de­plored that rather than as­sur­ing a fair deal to the Jammu peo­ple, the BJP MLAs were shame­lessly ag­i­tat­ing in the As­sem­bly for en­hance­ment of their salaries, perks and CDF.

Strongly flay­ing the cal­lous and in­sen­si­tive at­ti­tude of the PDD, he said that the peo­ple of Jammu re­gion are made to suf­fer im­mense hardships due to scorch­ing heat with no respite from sched­uled and un­sched­uled power cuts de­spite as­sur­ances.

He said that the Jammu re­gion was the ma­jor suf­ferer with the govern­ment and its min­is­ters be­ing mute spec­ta­tors in the face of a crit­i­cal and cri­sis like sit­u­a­tion.

Cit­ing fig­ures, he said that the power con­sump­tion be­tween Jammu and Kash­mir re­gions is in the ra­tio of 40:60, re­spec­tively but when it comes to rev­enue re­al­iza­tion.

Jammu con­trib­utes more than 66% of power tar­iff with barely 33% com­ing from Kash­mir re­gion.—GK as­serted that “scar­ing peo­ple who love free­dom more than their lives by jails, tor­tures and other op­pres­sive
