JAMMU: District Congress Committee, Jammu -Urban, conducted monthly meeting at PCC Headquarters Jammu on Tuesday. The meeting was chaired by former Minister J&K Yogesh Sawhney, General Secretary JKPCC & Incharge District President Jammu (U). Condemning BJP led administration for causing a majority of problems for Jammu, district Congress leaders reviewed possible solutions and plans for future undertakings by Congress in Jammu. They discussed various eminent issues regarding governance of Jammu region and planned to seek resolution of major issues including imposition of user tax on shopkeepers by Municipal authorities, farmers’ issues, ban on 4g internet, exorbitant school fee etc. Sawhney said that district leaders decided on continuing taking up issues of farmers protesting at Singhu border. It was also decided in the meeting that Congress, in Jammu, will highlight issues regarding high-electricity bills, both private and commercial, thereby putting huge financial burden on public during pandemic. Another issue, that will be taken up by party in coming month will be the arbitrary user charges imposed by Municipal Corporation on shops and shopkeepers, through pick-and-choose system. Sawhney also expressed concerns regarding long ban on 4g internet services which has hampered educational process of thousands of students across the UT, as online education is the only viable option in days of pandemic. He said that the Government should have taken into consideration importance of education as a factor for reviving 4G internet services in Jammu. “Education in J&K is suffering immensely as BJP is continuing ban on 4G internet services,” he added. Further, schools have been demanding full fees from the students and at the same time, denying full salaries to staff and teachers. A long-lasting solution needs to be formulated for the welfare of students, parents, teachers and schools as well, he suggested.
