He cautioned that given the continued apathy of the government people of the area could be left with no choice but to take to streets to seek redressal of their problems. He advised the party cadres to mobilize the public opinion so as to press the government for giving the area its due share in development process.
Mufti said all the major projects that had been started in the district by the previous govt had almost been shelved. He said the district headquarters and the villages around were facing tremendous problems and there was no response from the govt that could even marginally meet the challenge. He said roads in the area were in most dilapidated condition and the electric supply was marginal in most areas. The sanitation problems had multiplied manifold over the years and no new initiatives has been taken by the present govt on urban development front.
