Srinagar,Jammu and Kashmir National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said that the urban life of Srinagar city is blight with various problems, saying that neither the centre nor the state government invested in the augmentation of the urban infrastructure of the Srinagar city in the past five years.
Welcoming eleven corporators from SMC into the party fold here at Party headquarters Nawa- e- Subha, party vice president said that the city of Srinagar has fallen off from the development radar. “The people of Srinagar stand dejected at the paucity of amenities and the appalling condition of roads. The people of the Srinagar city were forsaken by the former PDP-BJP government, the present governor administration proved no different. The work on the various vital projects of the city that was initiated by our government was unfortunately stalled by the former PDP-BJP regime. ”
Party vice president said that National Conference despite being subjected to political shenanigans and conspiracies of various agencies never left any stone unturned to work for the benefit of the people of the state. “Once in power we will carry forward the mission of development and work towards ensuring peace in the state with the active participation of people. The urban life of Srinagar is fraught with different issues; the party once in power will hold the authorities accountable. For past few years no headway was seen towards upgrading the existing road and transport infrastructure of the city. We are witness to how government recklessly came up with certain projects in Srinagar which didn’t bring any respite to the city. The need of the hour, therefore, calls for proper planning to rise up to the demands of a growing population of Srinagar city.
