VIJAYPUR DECEMBER 11- Former minister and senior National Conference leader Mr Surjeet Singh Slathia today exhorted people to vote the party candidates in the ongoing elections to District Development Councils, saying their support will go a long way in ensuring development of Vijaypur constituency and transformation of the rural landscape.
“Let’s resolve to transform the entire Vijaypur segment with thrust and focus on rural development”, Mr Slathia said while addressing the people at village Rangoor, Dhopsadi, Bakha Chak, Kandral of Ramgarh at the conclusion of the election campaign.
Mr Slathia said there is urgent need for devising a futuristic plan for developing the area on modern lines with impetus on credible road network and dependable utility services. This has been totally ignored by the BJP during the past nearly six years resulting in numerous problems to the people. Special emphasis is required to be laid on internal road connectivity, which he described as key to growth and development, with focus on raising infrastructure. He said the strategically placed border constituency has its peculiar requirements which crave for priority attention.
He sought vote and support of people, saying this will give strength to the party to pursue their cause especially with regard to employment to the youth with renewed vigour. The BJP has pushed the youth to wall by denying them jobs. Their only agenda is to pursue self centric and divisive agenda. He also referred the non-challant approach of the BJP towards the plight of border dwellers, saying lack of attention during the past few years have added to their miseries manifold.
Referring to crucial importance of public involvement in taking forward developmental scenario, Mr Slathia said that present elections unfold an opportunity to the people to be masters of their own destiny. He said the youth and women being the major stakeholders of prosperous Vijaypur have onerous responsibility in shaping the destiny of the area. The grass roots level democratic institutions hold promise to rural development and it is incumbent upon the people to have public spirited representatives who can fulfill their urges and aspirations, he added.
The public meetings were attended by Sarpanchs, Panchs and prominent citizens of these villages.
