JAMMU, Sep 20: JKPCC vice president and former Minister Raman Bhalla today launched a scathing attack on the BJP dispensation for pushing Jammu and Kashmir to wall by creating a situation of drift, showing insensitivity towards peoples’ aspirations and forcing every section of society to follow path of confrontation, as a result of which J&K is in total chaos.
Bhalla was interacting with aggrieved people of Gadigarh area of Gandhi Nagar Constituency. He said that both Kashmir and Jammu regions are on boil because of the wrong policies of the Government. He said the people had mandated the BJP for ‘Ache-Din’ and what they got in return is just a nightmare. The scenario on the development front is pathetic, he added.
The JKPCC vice president termed the BJP leaders as dream sellers and referred to the total neglect of all sections of society. He said the BJP has mastered in whipping up passions and exploiting situations but when it comes to delivering, its leaders are just found wanting because of their total disconnect with people at grass root level. “It is time for BJP to read writing on the wall and perform or perish, lest the people throw them out of the arena which they once called their stronghold”, Bhalla maintained.
The former Minister said that equipped with high degree of public good-will and robust booth level cadre Congress will emerge with flying colours and serve the people and steering J&K to peace, progress and development. “Jammu has suffered the most during the BJP’s ‘misrule’ and the electorate has firmed up resolve to teach the party a lesson by power of their votes for the betrayal,” he said, adding that fear of defeat had unnerved the BJP leadership, and that was why they were indulging in name calling and mudslinging.
Prominent among those present on the occasion include Amrit Bali (Block president), Amrik Singh (Ex Naib Sarpanch), Rajinder Singh and retired SP Harjeet Singh.
