Chadoora, , August 18, (Scoop News)-Urging the administration to be more pro-active to address grievances of the people with social commitment , the Minister for Finance and Ladakh Affairs , Abdul Rahim Rather has said service to people is one of the good forms of worship. He said the basic objective of conducting extensive tours of remote and backward areas, along with concerned engineers and officers of administration, was to take on the spot assessment of the problems of people and seek their immediate solution.
Addressing public gatherings at Yar-i-Kalan and Dalipora in tehsil Chadoora, Mr Rather said that providing basic amenities to the people of backward areas at par with urbanities and ensuring equal opportunities of development and justice to all without any discrimination is the sacred mission of present Government which is being persued as an act of faith. He said “I have been tirelessly endeavouring during last 37 years of my political career to make J&K especially the Chrar-i Sharief constituency a model in terms of development and prosperity and exuded confidence that this cherished dream was near total fructification. In this regard ,he listed some landmark achievements of the present Government adding that what could not be done in last many years after independence ,was accomplished in just 6 years of the present Govt: “ Crores of rupees were expended to construct roads and bridges in Chrar-i-Sharief constituency alone,” Rather claimed adding that 15 major concrete bridges were completed in the constituency during this brief period besides construction of multi crore road projects.
The Minister challenged political opponents to show a single habitation, out of 115 villages of the Chrar-i- Sharief constituency, where the benefits of development have not accrued. He also challenge them to prove what tangible development they have done anywhere in the constituency during their 6 years tenure except promoting nepotism and hooliganism to usurp the rights of poor.
Cautioning against repeated attempts to revive criminalization of politics, Rather said that the opposition, in quest of power lust, has stooped so low that safety and security of the common people is at stake due to its machinations. He said ‘lie and deceit’ has become their hallmark to hoodwink public opinion adding that if their nefarious designs are not unitedly thwarted right now , the ethics of politics ,purity of values and morality will get endangered.
