The CPM has alleged that the blame game between ruling National Conference (NC) and Congress coalition partners was responsible for dismal delivery of administration in Jammu and Kashmir. CPM activists, who had come from different parts of south Kashmir, held a protest demonstration in Kulgam on Monday against the dismal functioning of government departments.
They were raising slogans against the public distribution system (PDS), hike in electricity fee, miserable power scenario and pending pension cases of widows, old age, orphans in the social welfare department.
The activists led by senior CPM leader Abdul Hamid Wani marched from the bus stand to Town Hall, Kulgam, carrying placards, banners and shouting slogans.
The demonstration culminated into a public rally at Town Hall in Kulgam, which was addressed by state secretary CPM and Kulgam MLA Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami.
Expressing serious concern over the administrative inertia afflicting the developmental situation in Jammu and Kashmir, he held the blame game between coalition partners directly responsible for a lackluster approach of the officers on the ground.
He said it was unfortunate that the two coalition partners in the state had nothing common in between except for the accusations and counteraccusations that have badly affected the hapless people.
What type of delivery, one can expect from the officers, when their ministers are leveling serious allegations against each other he asked.
The present dispensation was expected to deliver on the ground but its dismal performance gets reflected in every sector of life, he observed.
