Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla on Tuesday during his visit to the Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh suggested that the Parliamentary Standing Committees should visit remote areas of UTs Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh and the Northeastern states regularly and conduct studies to find out solutions for mitigation of grievances of local people.
“I would suggest all parliamentary standing committees to regularly go on study visits to far-flung areas of UTs of Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh and north-eastern states. The aim of these visits would be to understand the ground realities and suggest possible solutions for mitigating grievances of the local people,” LS Speaker Birla said in a press conference after addressing Panchayat leaders from across Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday.
Birla is in a week-long visit to the UTs of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh as a part of the parliamentary outreach programme for strengthening the Panchayat Raj Institutions. During this visit, he visited remote areas of both the Union Territories and interacted with local panchayat leaders.
