BASOHLI, Nov 27: The Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) president, Vikar Rasool Wani has said that the proxy rule of BJP in Jammu and Kashmir has failed on all fronts, especially the expectations of people and elections is the only way out to improve situation and  solve people’s problems.
Addressing rally at Basohli today Wani along with working president, Raman Bhalla lashed out at the BJP for its failure on all fronts in Jammu and Kashmir especially, in controlling targeted killings of minorities and in dealing with day today problems faced by the common people.
He said that a bureaucratic rule can’t be substitute to elected Government, since LG administration is answerable to none except BJP and Central Government. He said that targetted killings have caused fear among people especially minority employees working there for years, who have migrated to Jammu or other safer places. The army says there are more than 300  militants active but Government claims there is improvement in the situation but it is neither restoring statehood, nor holding elections.
Vikar Rasool said BJP is ruling Jammu and Kashmir by proxy and tries to take credit for every good thing done by LG Administration but puts the blame on LG administration where ever there is failure. They have failed to come up to the expectations of people especially in Jammu for which BJP shall face the consequences.
Bhalla alleged that Jammu suffered a lot under BJP regime and asked people to question BJP the achievements after abrogation of special status, downgrading of the state and our rights to land and jobs.  He said BJP has crushed poor people under unprecedented price hike and record unemployment with no job opportunities. Whatsoever recruitments were done, witnessed large scale bungling and scams, he added.
He said BJP only snatched the dignity, status, rights, jobs and business opportunities from the locals and people are hard pressed on all fronts and ever section is victim BJP’s policies and programmes.
Senior members Rajnish Sharma, Pawan Raina, Pranab Shagotra, Pankaj Dogra, Sanjay Razdan and others also spoke on the occasion.
The meeting at Basohli was organised by District Congress Committee Kathua president, Pankaj Dogra, senior leaders Sanjay Razdan and Akash Bharat.
