Rejecting the relief package for flood affected people announced today by the government JKPCC Chief G A Mir accused Coalition Govt for ignoring flood affected people of J&K State. It is a cruel joke with the flood affected people and is an insult to the injuries of affected people of Jammu and Kashmir, he said. PCC Chief said that mere Rs. 3.00 Lacs for fully damaged Pacca houses, Rs1.50 Lacs for fully damaged Kacha houses, 1.00 Lacs for severely damaged Kacha houses and Rs. 50.00 for severely damaged Kacha houses is half baked relief package and is an insult to the injuries of people who have suffered heavily due to Sept 2014 deluge, he said. A biggest irony on the Part of Coalition Government led by PDP, PCC Chief said that Coalition Government led by PDP has betrayed people of Jammu and Kashmir for the sake of coming into power. Tall claims by Mufti Mohammad Syeed about rehabilitation of flood affected were a political gimmick to secure votes from the people in valley, he said. PCC Chief said that keeping in view all aspect with regard to intensity of damages caused to houses and business establishment due to Sept 2014 deluge, Congress Party had projected a demand of Rs. 10.00 Lacks for fully damages houses, 6.00 Lacs for Severely damaged houses and Rs. 3.00 Lacs for partially damaged houses with the centre Government but the PDP led coalition Government let down the people in every respects and has triggered a sense of insecurity among the victims leaving them humiliated, he said. G A Mir also expressed his anguish over the completely leaving out a huge population who were affected by the floods and were provided a paltry a sum of Rs. 3800. Recalling the Utrakhand tragedy, PCC Chief said that UPA Government provided 8.00 Lacks to fully damaged houses, 6.00 Lacks to severely damaged and 3.00 lacks for partially damaged houses, but the package announced by Mufti Mohammad Syed today a complete deception and jugglery of words by State’s Finance Minister. PCC Chief said that Congress led Government in the State provided 2.50 Lacs to every house hold affected by the earthquake in2005 and in addition to that provided every facility required by them.
