Jammu Province People’s Forum (JPPF) deputation led by its President Paviter Singh on Sunday called on Divisional Commissioner Jammu M.K Bhandari to discuss various development issues and also apprise him about forum’s resentment over denial to meet the interlocutor during his recent visit.
Paviter Singh said that JPPF is a registered group of people drawn from all walks of life and has many feathers in its cap of social work done during its more than seven years of existence. He also apprised Divisional Commissioner that not only JPPF was ignored but organisations like Amar Kshatriya Rajput Sabha J&K, Brahmin Sabha J&K, Sanatan Dharam Sabha, Jat Sabha, Pensioners Association, and many others were also ignored thus giving a wrong signal about seriousness of the whole exercise.
After listening to the visiting deputation, Divisional Commissioner clarified that due to paucity of time limited numbers of deputations were allowed to meet. “The process of interaction is on and in the next meeting all other organisations who could not meet this time shall be given time to interact”, he assured. JPPF also demanded to review the list of prominent citizens and also to include the name Paviter Singh.
Other issues which came to fore in the meeting include artificial lake, Gandola, inauguration of Maharaja Hari Singhji Park, progress of AIIMS, holiday on Maharaja Hari Singh’s Birth Anniversary, Toll Tax, four lanning of Jammu-Akhnoor Road, plus two lecturers regularization, etc.
Narayan Singh President Amar Kshatriya Rajput Sabha, M.S Katoch Working President JPPF, inderjit Khajuria Chairman AJHALA, Avinash Bhatia JPPF, M .L. Sharma JPPF, Jagdish Sharma Sanatan Dharam Sabha, Kamal Singh Jat Sabha, Ajit Singh Adyal, M.L Abrol Pensioners Association, Pushpinder Singh JJSF, and B.K Sahney JPPF also accompanied the deputation.
