Jammu Tawi, December 17


People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Zone President Jammu West, Puneet Singh Jamwal today said that Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti by allocating administrative, financial and departmental powers to her council of ministers of the rank of MoS have decentralized powers and ensured better deliverance of administrative decisions at all levels in days to come. He said the announcement to empower Panchayats after their elections is again aimed at taking development to village levels.

The late Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed too wanted to decentralize powers and that was the reason he held elections to Municipal Corporations and all other local bodies just to involve common people before talking decision with regards to development of any town, city or even village. Now that six Ministers of State (MoS) have been accorded sufficient powers it is hoped that justice will be delivered to people.With this decision, dreams of Late Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed are being realised.

Hailing this decision of Chief Minister, Puneet Singh Jamwal said setting time frame for disposal of files at Minister of State level before forwarding the same to cabinet minister is another milestone in administrative history which will go a long way in clearing proposal and also expedite the pace of development with regards to development projects. Referring non-gazetted and gazetted vacancies to the Selections Committees, Public Service Commission (PSC) and Services Selection Board (SSB) by MoS will again expedite recruitment process in the state.
