Srinagar, May 25 UNI | 2 months ago

Despite debacle in the parliament polls in the state, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah is receiving hundreds of individuals and deputation everyday, listening to their grievances.

The Chief Minister gave patient hearing to all who met him during the past three days at his Gupkar residence and assured that their genuine grievances would be given priority attention for redressal.

State cabinet headed by Mr Omar Abdullah had recently scrapped new employment policy to pay full pay to all new government recruits besides announcing a number of other measures to win over those who have voted against the party in the Lok Sabha elections, defeating all the three party candidates, including president Dr Farooq Abdullah.

However, Congress, partner in the coalition government in the state, was quick to claim the credit that scrapping of new recruitment policy was raised by it.

An official spokesman said Mr Abdullah spent busy days to receive individuals and deputation from various part of the state.

He said hundreds of individuals and scores of deputations from various parts of the State continued to beeline Chief Minister's residence yesterday to register their grievances and seek his personal intervention for redressal.

Mr Abdullah spend full day with the public hearing their grievances and demands relating to the development matters.

Over 50 deputations from Baramulla, Kupwara, Handweara, Sopore, Bandipora, Ganderbal, Budgam, Srinagar, Pahalgam, Banihal, Jammu, Poonch, Kalakote and other areas in their separate meetings with the Chief Minister apprised him of their development needs and sought his intervention in redressal of grievances.

Various deputations of political activists in their interaction with the Chief Minister discussed mostly political issues.

Scores of individuals presented to the Chief Minister their individual problems and sought his help in resolving these.

Various Trade Union deputations, Casual Labours and Contractual Employees Associations, Srinagar Municipal Corporation Contractual Employees Association and a number of other Unions presented to the Chief Minister memoranda regarding their welfare and regularization.
