Describing much hyped relief Package by Finance Minister as misleading and insult to the injuries of flood affected people, JKPCC Chief G.A. Mir has questioned that where is the relief package of PDP BJP, how much Govt is allocating for relief and rehabilitation ? Seeking clarity from the Coalition Govt especially Finance Minister over the Relief Package announced during Prime Minister’s visit to Valley, G.A. Mir asked the Govt to clarify how they are to going to rehabilitate the flood affected people particularly business community which has suffered heavily due to September 2014 deluge. How the State Govt is going to rehabilitate others who lost their household due to floods, he questioned. According to a statement issued to KNS, accusing Coalition Govt for playing with the emotions of Flood and Rain affected people of the State, JKPCC G.A. Mir has said that previous INC NC Govt while taking onboard all the stake holders, prepared a relief package of Rs. 44,000/ Crorers which was comprehensive covering everyone affected due to floods, but the said package was rejected purely only political lines by the Centre Govt, which is quite amazing and unfortunate, he said. PCC Chief said that Govt must come out with a complete details about the Flood Relief Package and should also educate the people about the step Govt is taking for rehabilitating o flood affected people, as that thing will only clear the confusion created by the State Govt with regard to Flood Relief Package. Supporting Business Chambers and Traders Association for having decided to boycott Pre Budget Meeting of Finance Ministry in protest against the failure of the Govt to rehabilitate them, JKPCC Chief said that Govt has miserably failed to rehabilitate the Business Community, for the fact, it (Coalition Govt) is taking their issues lightly. He said the Business Community have suffered huge losses due to Sept 2014 deluge and the approach of the Govt towards their rehabilitation is confusing. Reiterating Congress Party’s resolve to fight for the rehabilitation of flood affected people, PCC Chief said that it is obvious now that Traders Community of Kashmir too is feeling disappointed with callous attitude of Ruling Dispensation. PCC Chief further asked the Govt to stop misleading people on the name of Relief or Development, for the fact, Coalition Govt has miserably failed to address main issues confronting people in all the three regions of the State.
