    Demands immediate relief to the affected families

    Srinagar, 19: Hasnain Masoodi JK NC leader and Member Parliament has expressed deep pain and shock at death of two children due to freezing cold  at Larmar Kulgam and conveyed heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family.

    In a statement released to press Masoodi has stated that this is the first kind of such incident in Jammu and Kashmir in last seven decades and depicts gross insensitive, apathy and indifference of the administration.The more painful is that the administration was well aware of plight of the family and other such families in the area and yet sufficient steps were not taken to shift them to any available official or rented accommodation, provide them healthcare and other assistance. 

    Masoodi has asked the district administration to immediately identify all the vulnerable families living in tents or tin sheds in the area and because of subzero temperature shift them to available government or rented accommodation. He has also demanded adequate compensation to the affected family. He has demanded that at least a temporary dispensary be set up at Arward, Lamar to provide healthcare to the affected families and inhabitants of the area.

     Masoodi today spoke to DDC Kulgam to express his anguish and was assured that all efforts would be made to provide relief to the affected families in addition to steps already taken.

    Masoodi has lamented that “ Affordable Housing” a dream project and different verticals/ segments under it like IAY, PMAY Urban and Rural, are not being implemented in an expeditious and hassle free manner and consequently much needed benefit denied to the deserving sections of society. He has asked LG administration to set up a mechanism to monitor and periodically review, implementation of these important Schemes meant for the people standing last in the queue.(GNS)
