Border-Migrants-Omar Abdullah-Pakistan-Ceasefire violation-Jammu

Why is Omar Abdullah govt shying away from helping border migrants ?

Ever since residents of several forward Indian villages have shifted to safer places and taken shelter in govt school buildings and other places in the wake of increasing hostilities along the International border the miseries of these people have been compounded by the poor planning and lack of coordination on the part of different state govt agencies.

Senior functionaries of the state govt have been holding review meetings to chalk out a contingency plan but on ground zero it is the volunteers of several social organsiations, local residents themselves and even the jawans of the Indian army who are doing self less service and providing facilities to affected population.

The tall claims of the state govt have fallen flat when it comes to addressing the genuine grievances of  affected population.

On Tuesday the army unit located in Miran Sahib organised langar facility for border residents at different shelter points. Medical camps were also set up to provide free medical facilities to women and children.

Large number of senior citizens uprooted from their homes and hearths also turned up to seek medical advice. The women folk and young girls are the worst sufferers as they find it difficult to adjust  to the inhospitable conditions.

On the other hand instead of providing basic facilities the state chief minister is dragging his feat in the tug of war with the BJP govt at the centre and shifting the blame of not looking after the needs of border residents on the central govt.

Omar is peeved over the scathing attack launched by the BJP Chief Amit Shah in Kathua on Monday when he questioned his absence from the migrant camps and not addressing the issues of border residents.
