KHOUR, Sept 9: Senior Congress leader and former Dy Chief Minister, Tara Chand today alleged that BJP has mastered the art of marketing falsehood and exploiting the emotions of the people for its vote bank politics.
Addressing a large public gathering at Khour in Chhamb Assembly Constituency of district Jammu today, Tara Chand said that BJP has only spread falsehood and exploited emotions of the people for managing votes and grabbing power. This party has in fact, mastered the art of marketing falsehood.
The Congress leader questioned the Modi Govt’s promise to bring black money back in 100 days and deposit Rs 15 lakhs in the bank account of every Indian, bring the prices under control, end corruption, create 2 crore jobs every year for youth and check Pakistan from sponsoring terrorism. He said all these promises have proved white lie.
Tara Chand said that Congress Party would always remain steady on its principles of secularism and equality for all and equitable development of all the three regions of the State. He exhorted party workers to strengthen both the units and gear up for all kinds of electoral battles in near future.
The former DyCM asked the party workers to gear up their activities in view of forthcoming Urban Local Bodies and Panchayat elections. He urged upon the people to expose the power hungry politics and hatred spread by the communal and divisive forces and teach them a lesson in the next elections.
A large number of people from Khour, Pallanwalla, Palatan and some other areas also joined the Congress Party in presence of Tara Chand and expressed their faith in his leadership. They said that after being duped by the ruling party at the centre and anti-Jammu stance of some Valley based parties, they have decided to join Congress.
