BJP fails to honour its election promises: Harsh

Excelsior Correspondent
RAMNAGAR, May 31:  With nation amazed over the reduction of prices of petrol and diesel by one paisa, Harsh Dev Singh chairman JKNPP and former Minister questioned as to whether it was a relief or a cruel joke with the people of the country.
Addressing the public meetings in Kaghote and Ramnagar town today, he said that it was for the first time in history that petrol prices had exceeded Rs. 80 per litre and diesel prices gone above Rs.70 per litre despite repeated assurances and lofty promises of the Government to keep the same in check.
Expressing concern over the steep rise in the prices of petroleum products and LPG, he said that it had paved the way for onset of inflationary tendencies in the country. The prices of essential commodities were likely to be affected in view of increase in freight charges which was a natural concomitant of increased petrol and diesel prices, added Singh.
Reminding the Prime Minister of his tall slogans of curbing inflation and regulating prices of all essentials particularly petrol and diesel, Singh regretted that it too had proved to be a ‘Jumla’ an election gimmick.
Making a mention of some of the impartment election time announcements, Singh said that the promise of two crore jobs each year for unemployed youth had also proved a hoax causing much disenchantment amongst the educated youth. He said that educated youth of J&K had much to suffer in view of negligible jobs and invocation of SRO-202 for filling up the some. He regretted that even the contractuals and daily wagers in J&K were subjected to the most callous treatment with their negligible honorarium remaining unpaid for months and all the promises of regularization proving fake.
Calling upon the people to support their own regional party, Singh said that local issues could be best addressed by local leadership only.
Expressing grave concern over the pathetic plight of the existing roads, chaotic power supply system, dysfunctional water supply schemes, corruption plagued Rural Development and Food and Supplies Department and staff deficient schooling system, Singh deplored that Ramnagar constituency once known for revolutionary growth and development had been relegated to the position of tail ender in the matter of development.
