NC calls for immediate reversal of hiked rates, fees by JMC


Tawi, Dec 29th: Ajay Kumar Sadhotra, Additional General Secretary JKNC and former minister today reaffirmed the commitment of Conference to the people of Jammu and , emphasizing its role as the only viable solution to the region's challenges, particularly in empowering women.

The senior NC leader was speaking in a workers meeting of Women Wing District Jammu Urban at Jammu.

He said that the present government has failed to take any concrete steps towards reducing the suffering of women amid these challenging economic conditions.


Rattan Lal Gupta Provincial President Jammu Province asserted National Conference has always been at the forefront in advocating and implementing policies and programmes that uplift and empower the women of Jammu and Kashmir.

Gupta also expressed serious concerns over the recent increase in rates or fees for various services and assets by the Jammu Municipal Corporation. He strongly suggested that any enhancement of rates or fees should be deferred until an elected government is in place.

Gupta demanded an immediate rollback of the increased rates or fees for various services and assets. He argued that these hikes are burdensome for the residents and should be reconsidered in the context of the public's best interests and financial well-being.


Sheikh Bashir Ahmed, Provincial Secretary JKNC Jammu, asked the people in general and women in particular to strengthen the hands of Dr Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah in view of ensuing elections in Jammu and Kashmir. He assured that the National Conference will leave no stone unturned in empowering the women with all their genuine rights.

Addressing the gathering, Bimla Luthra said that today there is a dire need to make the women fully aware about their rights and take appropriate and adequate steps to empower the women folk so that they come forward to demand their entitlement under such rights.

Satwant Dogra lamented that the women have been the worst sufferers under the ongoing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rule at the Centre and proxy rule in Jammu and Kashmir. She alleged that during the so called ‘Good Governance' as claimed by the BJP women folk have forgotten that even they have some rights in the society.


Among those who were present in the meeting include:- Ayub Malik Provincial Secretary Jammu, Deepinder Kour Ex-MLC, Vijay Lakhshmi Datta, Asha Mehra, Rita Gupta, Som Raj Taroch, Joginder Kour, Paramjeet Kour, Shallu Sharma, Priyanka, Savita Razdan, Devinder Singh, Ravinder Singh Mantoo, Indu Sharma, Sonia Dogra, Sanju Pandita, Seema, Sarita, Priyanka Dogra and others.
