NAGROTA, Mar 4: National Conference Provincial President Devender Singh Rana today slammed BJP for putting Jammu’s interests and development subservient to the pleasure of PDP for remaining glued to power.
“It is a unique combination, which shows convergence in sharing the loaves of power but demonstrates divergence to the extent of jingoism when it comes to inciting passions on core issues”, Rana said while interacting with people during his day-long tour of Nagrota Assembly Constituency.
The Provincial President said the partnership of the alliance parities san cohesion as a result of which the people of the State in general and the Jammu region in particular are suffering on account of development. He made a particular mention of the BJP and dared its ministers to list their achievements with regard to fulfilling the developmental needs of the Jammu region.
“Despite being in power at the Centre and in the State the party failed miserably on governance front and let down Jammu on all fronts”, he said, adding that the BJP has nothing to showcase as its achievement, least to fulfilling liberal promises during elections.
Rana observed that the treachery and deceit of the BJP is haunting Jammu people who reposed their unflinching faith and support to it with the hope that Jammu may perhaps get a better deal as during the days of its wilderness in the opposition, the BJP leaders were crying hoarse over discrimination and neglect. He charged the BJP for reversing some of the prestigious projects launched during the tenure of Omar Abdullah as Chief Minister for putting the Jammu region on equal pedestal of development.
“Not only on the front of development but equally in terms of instilling a sense of confidence among the people, the BJP has desperately failed”, Rana said and referred to uncertain political climate prevailing across the State ever-since the coalition dispensation came into being.
Referring to the issues confronting to his constituency, Rana said that being a chosen representative of the people, he has been pursuing all those connected with development for giving push to the schemes and projects aimed at overall development and welfare of various areas and different segments of society.
“I will keep pursuing and highlighting every issue, major or minor, to see this constituency progress and prosper, notwithstanding the odds”, he assured the people and said that their support, cooperation and, above all, feedback and counseling about the needs of the constituency have been crucially useful for him to get the schemes implemented.
