NC brought economic, tourism revolution in Srinagar: Nasir
National Conference Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani has termed Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s decision to reduce Electricity Duty by a “significant 12% as a big pro-people decision that will go a long way in reducing the power-bills for consumers in the state,” a NC handout Friday said.
“Speaking to various public delegations from Srinagar who called on the NC Provincial President to discuss developmental works and public issues in their respective areas, Nasir Aslam Wani hailed the vision and statesmanship of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah in taking bold, concrete and historic measures to provide enormous benefits to the people of Jammu & Kashmir,” the party handout said.
“Omar Sahib has gone beyond what any Chief Minister has done for this State and has time and again exhibited the leadership and statesmanship to give relief and succor to the poor and needy. The reduction in Electricity Duty is another measure that will drastically reduce the power-bills of the common man – thereby encouraging him to continue playing a role in the economic resurgence and re-development of this State”, Nasir said.
“Every section of people in this State has benefited in practical terms due to the leadership of Omar Abdullah and this is something proven by deeds, facts and figures. The rhetoric of the opposition is blunted in comparison to the fact that National Conference has consistently fulfilled its promises made with the common-man. For National Conference the needs of the common-man come first and despite consistent opposition to pro-people measures by parties like the PDP, we have pushed through and persisted and fought for the rights and interests of the common-man. We will continue to fight for the rights of the common-man with increasing passion and dedication”, Wani added.
He said that National Conference had brought an “unprecedented economic revolution in Srinagar by boosting public infrastructure, retail infrastructure and tourism infrastructure in measures that were never seen in the past.” “Today thousands of new jobs stand created in the tourism sector in Srinagar with additions of thousands of crores to the Tourism Industry that directly benefits the common-man,” Nasir said.
