JAMMU: JKPCC Vice President and former Minister Raman Bhalla on Sunday claimed that tall claims of growth made by the administration and central authorities have so far turned out to be mere hoax.He sought a report card on growth after gathering reviews from the bottom and expose the tall claims made by the central authorities for the previous seven years.This was observed by former Minister after visiting several Panchayats of Gandhi Nagar constituency on Sunday.Prominent among those who accompanied Bhalla include Satish Sharma Ex Chairman Sanitation Committee JMC, PCC member, Shamsher Singh Ex Sarpanch, Sarpanch Babliana, Shunty Panch, Harjeet Singh, S Manjeet Singh, Tajinder Singh, Sawaren Singh, Kulwant Singh, Ajeet Singh Talwar beside others.Bhalla countered government’s growth narrative on rural growth, which was propagated by way of back to villages programmes which largely remained a publicity stunt and nothing concrete happened on the ground.“For the previous few years, the administration has performed three B2V programmes which were organized to divert consideration of individuals from the actual points, while there was no growth at villages and Panchayats members have been cheated once more underneath the garb of those packages,” mentioned Bhalla.Bhalla claimed that during these programmes, there was no implementation of packages or redressal of grievances on floor, regardless of spectacular participation of individuals.“Even present LG organized one such program, however the relevance of those packages is questionable as no determination taken is applied on floor. After which there’s large loss to exchequer to prepare such futile workouts,” he said. Unfortunately, there has been no follow up to earlier B2V exercises, which has rendered this new phase a sheer mockery. Non-observance of the official commitments in the previous two rounds of B2V is widening the trust deficit between people and the officials. The absence of a robust redressal mechanism has therefore rendered the entire exercise ineffective,” he said. He further said that the officials took note of many problems villages facing but problems remained in the notebook as nothing has happened so far.The COVID-19 pandemic has called attention to the lack of financial and institutional support to Panchayats, effects of which highlight the flaws of the existing fractured system, he said.At that time, Panchayati Raj Institutions made all arrangements for officials and organised Gram Sabhas, but the result was zero as Panchayats were not given funds, he alleged.
