JAMMU, Jan 11: Hitting out at BJP Government for making life of people miserable due to faulty policies and administrative inexperience, former minister and senior Congress leader Raman Bhalla today said that Modi Govt during last six years of period has proved most traumatic and devastating for the youth, farmers and traders of the country.
He said people of J&K are cursing this insensitive Govt for ignoring them completely and making them suffer for everything.
“The mess created by Govt has resulted in total administrative failure in the Jammu division”, Bhalla said while interacting with party workers of Bahu Fort area in Gandhi Nagar constituency today.
Making a mention of lofty promises made by the BJP during elections, Bhalla alleged that BJP leaders are busy only in delivering sermons and repeating of repeated hallow claims. However, he said the fact remains that developmental activities are almost invisible and no concrete measures are taken to address the issues of livelihood. Most of the projects which are visualized, do not get started and those which have been started often do not meet their end is the trend of Jammu projects. He said due to non- serious approach of the Government, wasting precious public money and abandoning projects is the ultimate solution for the Government.
Bhalla alleged that mega development projects, including expansion of Jammu Airport, the ring road project, four laning of Jammu-Akhnoor road, multi-tier parking at general bus stand, development of Tawi River Front, Jammu Ropeway project and the upcoming Legislative complex are moving at snail’s pace under BJP rule.
In addition to this, no considerable development has been seen on augmentation of Chenab Water Supply Scheme and Sewerage projects, restoration of Mubarak Mandi heritage complex, development of facilities at Suchetgarh under the border tourism, the AIIMS project, IIT and IIM Jammu campuses, Bhalla said.
Bhalla questioned the criminal silence of BJP Government over pending MGNREGA liabilities amounting to crores, as a result of which thousands of poor workers are suffering for want of pending payments of their wages.
