Dr Sharma accused BJP of its complete surrender before PDP by selling due share of employment and development of Jammu region. The people of Jammu region have shown resentment against the discrimination on the resent allotment of post of teachers in the Education department.

He said that the common man feels cheated by the present PDP and BJP Coalition Government and the real face of BJP stands totally exposed before the public. DyCM, Dr Nirmal Singh not even utters a single word against all these anti-Jammu decisions, Mr Sharma maintained.
