In Jammu and Kashmir, sanitation, cleanliness and waste disposal and management are a foremost confront before the government and in the dearth of an appropriate waste management plan in rural areas, as the environment has been polluting and many of the water bodies especially springs have got either polluted or wiped out.
Thus, the concerned officers have to come with durable solutions for the waste management rather at earliest. So that government can act upon the recommendations or Plan and start working over it. Ironically, the government has failed to formulate an inclusive and effective method for the solid waste management.
Debate and discussion are not sufficient regarding issues of Solid Waste Management, as action with implementation is missing at the ground level. Remarkably, less consideration is paid to the waste management in rural areas, but the government should learn from the 2014 floods which taught that focus needs to be given in rural areas as a majority of the population lives there. Thus, a preponderance of the streams and Nallahs have been converted into small drains due to reckless garbage dumping and the pungent of these streams lead to devastation in 2014. It is for the state government to put an effective mechanism in all the villages, towns and cities of the state to ensure that proper solid waste management practices are commenced. Pertinently, the anti-Polythene drive has been somehow a successive effort, as during the drive huge quantity of polythene was recovered by the department. But an effective mechanism the issues concerning their Wards including including establishment of public utilities, increasing the pace of ongoing construction work and identification of land for the proposed projects at Billawar.
They also demanded renovation of approach roads, separation of ration card within family, construction of shelter at cremation ground, inclusion of name in BPL list and construction of overhead tank in water stressed areas.
The Speaker assured them that their genuine demands will be taken up at the appropriate level.
Highlighting various flagship programmes of central Government, Dr. Singh said that ‘Ayushman Bharat’, world’s largest government-funded health programme called National Health Protection Scheme (NHPS), with Rs 5 lakh insurance cover per family per year is for secondary and tertiary healthcare.
