HIRANAGAR, Apr 14: Former Minister and Congress candidate from Jammu-Poonch Parliamentary seat Raman Bhalla today lambasted BJP Government for ‘totally neglecting the education and health sectors in State.
Addressing public meetings at Jatwal and Dayalachak in Kathua along with Ex-MLC Subash Gupta and Ex-MLAs Gardhari lal and Prem Lal Bhalla, said that there was no single recruitment of teachers and masters under SSA and ReT in last four years and further the ones who have completed more than 5 years of tenure under ReT are awaiting regularization.”Same is the story under NHRM scheme,” Bhalla said adding that BJP Government failed to carry forward the development works started by the Congress Government
“Hiranagar CHC was upgraded to 100 beds by Congress but in last five years no work was done on this hospital,” Bhalla said.
He said during tenure of Congress Govt, Kathua got seven new Degree Colleges, University Campus, Medical College whereas on the contrary in BJP tenure the Government even failed to expedite work on such projects and no new announcement was made.
Bhalla said that local MLA and BJP betrayed people of border belt of Hiranagar. He said from past 15 years people from Hiranagar had given mandate to BJP but still Hiranagar lacks behind on development front. Appealing the people to get rid of the ‘compulsive obsessive disorder’ of voting in favour of time tested failed parties time and again, Bhalla said that BJP has proved complete failure to fulfill the aspirations of the people of Jammu region.
“You have tried them. They have miserably failed to espouse the cause of Dogras in the Lok Sabha. Whenever you voted them to power, their focus just remained on Kashmir while Jammu province was totally marginalized under their rule”, regretted Bhalla.
Bhalla recalled that during the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in 2014, the people voted BJP to power with an overwhelming mandate in both the elections. While the BJP MPs from Jammu region remained mute spectators in the Union capital in five years, the party with its 25 MLAs in the State had compromised with the national and regional interests to stay in power. He said the youth, border dwellers and the farmers were the worst victims of BJP’s betrayals under its rule.
