Manjit Singh urges Govt. to regularize land in favour of people in Kore-Jagir Panchayat

Apni Party organises public meeting in Nagrota

Nagrota, June 19, 2021: Manjit Singh, Provincial President, Jammu and Former Minister today urged Govt. to regularize land in favour of Schedule Caste and Schedule Tribe community living in a miserable condition in an under-developed area called Kore-Jagir in Nagrota assembly constituency, Jammu District.

In a statement to the press, a public meeting was organised by senior Apni Party leader Rupali Rani at Kore-Jagir Panchayat in which people highlighted their issues concerning development.

Rupali Rani, Apni Party’s senior leader informed about issues like road connectivity, drinking water and negligence of the area which falls in Jammu District.

Speaking on the occasion, Manjit Singh said that it was unfortunate to know that a Panchayat close to Jammu City is still under developed and lacks basic amenities.

“The poor and landless people belonging to the SC and ST community settled in the Kore-Jagir Panchayat for decades. The poor stricken people need Govt’s urgent attention towards their developmental issues,” said Manjit Singh.

He said that the land should be regularized in favour of people in Kore-Jagir who have been living there for many decades. “The landless and poor people should be given benefits of the Govt. schemes and they should be right on the land they are holding,” he demanded and urged the Lt Governor for his intervention with regard to development and to improve their livelihood.
He said that the Jammu Development Authority should consider their case on priority basis on humanitarian grounds by regularizing them on the land under their possession.

Meanwhile, State SC Coordinator Bodh Raj Bhagat and State OBC Coordinator Madan Lal Chalotra also spoke on the occasion and expressed their concern over the living condition of the people in the Panchayat.

“The downtrodden section of society should be treated equally. The neglected class of people should be provided all basic amenities to improve their living conditions at their village,” they added.
