BANI, Feb 2: BJP National Executive Member & Chief Spokesperson of the State Dr Jitendra Singh today said, the entire belt of Bani-Basohli has been constantly neglected by the NC – Congress Government and the only way to redeem this situation is to immediately address the long pending demands of the area which include better maintenance of roads, upgradation of education facility with offsite Campus of Jammu University and round the clock power supply.
Addressing a meeting of Party workers here Dr Jitendra Singh said, it is strange that even as rail tracks are being laid down in the rest of the State, why Basohli cannot be connected by rail link despite its close proximity to Pathankote-Jammu rail line.
Highlighting the role of local MLA, Lal Chand as a popular, firebrand leader, Dr Singh said, his re-induction into BJP will add impetus to the party activities in the area and also bring the BJP closer to the people of Bani.
The meeting, which was held to review the management of polling booths and composition of booth committees in the context of forthcoming Lok Sabha election, was also attended by Party’s district president Mr Mankotia, organizing secretary Inderjit, Mandal president Thakur Dass, Pawan Chouhan,Uttam Goswamy,Des Raj and several others.
Dr Singh said, BJP is the only democratic option for self-respecting, patriotic people, particularly in a State like Jammu & Kashmir, because here the other major national party, namely the Congress, has in its bid for power, yielded space to militant-friendly regional parties. This makes the responsibility of a BJP ”Karyakarta” all the more crucial because the entire nation looks up to him for holding aloft the tricolor of Indian sovereignty in J&K,he added.
BJP will go to people with Modi’s slogan of “Vote for India”, he said and reiterated the appeal for “Ek Note, Kamal Par Vote”.
MLA, Lal Chand, while welcoming Dr Jitendra Singh , assured maximum support to BJP from the area during the Parliament and Assembly elections. He said, he will continue to fight for just demands of the people of Bani.
Mankotia presented a detailed resume of booth composition and Incharges of polling booths as well as Shakti Kendras.
