JAMMU, Oct 26: Senior Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) leaders and former ministers Raman Bhalla and Yogesh Sawhney today alleged that anti-farmer, anti-employee, anti-poor, anti-women and anti-people BJP Government has been badly destroying the country.
In a meeting of the District Congress Committee Jammu-Urban (DCC-U), held here today to make necessary preparations for conducting district-wise programs to commemorate the 36th death anniversary of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, the senior PCC leaders alleged that BJP was weakening the democratic institutions and tries to govern J&K through proxy. They alleged that BJP has proved anti-farmer, anti-employee, anti-women and anti-people.
Raman Bhalla, while speaking in the meeting, announced, that as per party directions, they will organise a Satyagraha on October 31 to step up it’s protests against the BJP Government for farmers’ rights to mark the day as Kissan Adhikar Diwas. “The party will step up and accelerate its awareness program to awaken people to the unjust actions of the Government, the economic degradation, the increasing inflation and costs, and anti-farmer agricultural laws among other things. Therefore, the party has decided to launch a series of programs against the anti-farmer, anti-women, anti-poor and anti-people policies of the BJP-led Government at the Center”, said Bhalla.
PCC leader launched a scathing attack on the Union Government for endangering the livelihood and rights of the backbone of the country i.e., our farmers. The coming Satyagraha will mark our resistance against them. “The BJP’s attempt to fan hostility among the public by saying sugar-coated statements would not succeed as the miserable condition of the country in all walks and spheres of life is visible to all. The BJP then goes on to divert people’s attention from real issues to save their power, and their authoritarian, extremely dictatorial strategies are only working against the country. The political and communal turn each of the issues has taken had led to a series of conspiracies and conflicts only but no solutions”, he said.
Sawhney elaborated on party’s future course of action regarding Indira Gandhi’s death anniversary programs. “We will conduct Satyagrahas and fasts at district headquarters against anti-farmer and anti-labour policies of BJP Govt,” Sawhney said.
Senior Congress leaders Dr RamaKant Khajuria, Uttam Singh, Madan Lal Malager, SP Sapolia, Sushant Gupta, Atul Sharma, Kulbushan Sharma , Chander Shekhar Sharma, Amrit Bali, Hoshiar Singh, Vijay Sharma, Rakesh Chopra and others were also present in the meeting.
