JAMMU, Sept 28: The Pradesh Congress Committee has alleged that BJP shall bite the dust in the ongoing ULB elections because of its worst ever misrule in the State and total neglect of Jammu region during three and half years of PDP-BJP.
PCC chief spokesperson, Ravinder Sharma said that the mood of the people is to teach BJP a lesson for their betrayals and worst ever discrimination and neglect of Jammu region during their regime. Most of the developmental projects initiated and sanctioned by the UPA are still in limbo and nothing moved thereafter on major commitments except false claims in the media and publicity fronts.
He questioned why the main demand of artificial lake project aimed at beautification of Jammu city and attract tourist and pilgrims, to boost the economy of Jammu, has been abandoned despite over Rs 58 crores investment during Congress-NC regime. What happened to the beautification and development of Tawi banks on Sabarmati pattern and what about the preservation and protection of Dogra heritage as well as the inordinate delay in the completion of Gandola project to Bahu Fort, he questioned.
He also questioned the promise of smart city and metro city to Jammu despite lot of protests and struggle by the people of Jammu. The PDP-BJP Government could not take over the land identified for AIIMS for four years, which was achieved by the Governor’s administration in a short period but would that project see the light of day, if this remained the approach of centre and State Government to this prestigious project. Same is the fate of five Medical Colleges and Cancer institutes sanctioned by UPA Govt to the state.
Sharma said that apart from lot of other misdeeds, worst ever corruption and broken promises the people now question BJP for total surrender to the policies of alliance partner, detrimental to the national interests just to remain in power. The PDP-BJP Government created worst ever trust deficit between people of different regions and sections of the society. The common man especially the youth and different sections of workers like daily wagers/casual labours, teachers, lecturers, Anganwadi workers and helpers, FMPHWs remained on roads for the genuine demands but nobody responded to their demands. Governor did solve some of their problems. This has demonstrated that there was total policy paralysis during PDP-BJP rule causing lot of hardships to common masses, he added.
