Minister of State for the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region, Prime Minister Office, Dr Jitendra Singh was the Chief Guest on the occasion.
After the meet, JPPC member submitted memorandum to Dr jitendra alleging discrimination with Jammu province in all sectors.
In the memorandum, JPPC members said few disruptive elements are trying to destabilise the growing economy of our country.
“The initiatives initiated by the Central Government to calm down the unrest in the Valley are commendable, but any talk with regard to Kashmir shall be incomplete if the Jammu and Ladakh region are not part of the dialogue,” they said.
The turmoil in Kashmir Valley has a major setback to the business community of Jammu province too, which needs to be compensated, they said adding that many drivers and cleaners were beaten up and trucks, tankers and taxis were damaged but no relief has been given to the victims even the damage caused to the vehicles are also not compensated which needs to be done immediately.
They apprised the minister that there is no initiative from the government to develop tourism related projects in Jammu province, thereby the hotels, lodges, restaurants, traders, transporters are facing lot of problems.
They urged the minister to start Gondola/ Cable Car Project in Jammu as well as in Patnitop, artificial lake project, road connectivity to Mansar Lake, Surinsar Lake and Sanasar to attract more and more number of tourists and develop various places like Panchari, Sudmahadev, Patnitop, Bhaderwah, Sanasar, Jhajjarkotli for tourist attraction.
The inappropriate industrial policy of the State Government is not attracting industrial units in the State where thousands of youths could be employed, they said adding that the private education sector is also passing through turmoil.
If user friendly education policy be enacted, they said, the education sector would emerge as a major employer, similarly, to attract IT entrepreneurs, establish IT units to boost up employment in the State.
Congratulating the Central Government for setting up of IIT in Jammu, they also said that IIM project is still in doldrums which needs to be expedited immediately.
They also requested the government to recruit the unemployed youth of Jammu province by raising special battalions in belt forces.
Others issues which should also be taken into considerations include four lanes of border roads, Jammu-Akhnoor Road, establishment of DRM office, better Internet connectivity etc, they maintained.
