KATHUA, Apr 15: Former Minister and senior Congress leader, R S Chib today said that BJP had betrayed the people of Jammu in every sphere, whether it was sanctioning of new projects, providing jobs to Jammu youth or sanctioning of funds to this region.
He pointed out that BJP Government provided just Rs 5.5 lakhs to the displaced persons from PoK of 1947, 1965 and 1971 instead of Rs 25 lakhs per family as recommended by the previous Congress Government headed by then Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad. These DPs are now feeling cheated by the BJP regime, he maintained while addressing an election rally in favour of party’s candidate from Kathua-Udhampur-Doda Lok Sabha seat, Vikramaditya Singh at Haria Chak in Hiranagar.
Chib pointed out that during last five years, incidents of infiltration and ceasefire violations along borders in J&K both on IB and LoC has stepped up and moreover, the number of casualties of security forces has also gone higher during BJP regime. The border people were not provided 5 marla plots at safer places as promised, he said, adding this Government has failed to honour any of its promise made during 2014 elections.
The Congress leader further said that the promise of providing 2 crore jobs to the educated youth every year has also proved hollow, besides bringing back black money from the banks outside the country. He appealed the people to vote and support Vikramaditya Singh for better development and victory of secular forces.
Former MLA Hiranagar GL Chalotra, Youth leaders Goldy Kamboj, secretary IYC incharge J&K, Udhay Bhanu president PYC, Romi Andotra, Romi Sharma, Aijaz Choudhary and Rocky Choudhary also spoke on the occasion and appealed the people to vote for the Congress party.
