The National Conference today lashed out at CM Mehbooba Mufti and the state government over the amount of fund allocated to Srinagar under the Capital City Development Plan (CCDP).
The party’s general secretary, Ali Mohammad Sagar, said the state government misled the people over the allocation to the district.
Sagar said Rs 600 crore “allegedly allocated to Srinagar under the CCDP was an aggregate amount of various existing Central schemes and devolution funds for municipality, conservation and land acquisition that had been disingenuously re-branded as the CCDP.”
“It is now public knowledge that the district plan size for Srinagar announced by the government is half of the amount announced for Jammu district. To conceal this grave injustice with the people of Srinagar, the CM has resorted to dishonesty,” Sagar said in a statement.
