KATHUA, Mar 26: Former MP and chief patron of DSSP, Ch Lal Singh has said that Congress candidate, from Kathua-Udhampur-Doda, Vikramaditya Singh should resign on moral grounds.
Addressing a large public rally before filing his nomination papers at Kathua today, Lal Singh said that every party is worried over the unexpected political scenario in Jammu region. The Kashmir centric parties have lost ground in Jammu and therefore, no party dares to fight election from Jammu province.
Some parties have started spreading hatred against Maharaja Hari Singh by terming him killer of over 6 lakh people in Jammu division. It is very unfortunate that the Congress candidate is taking the support of these parties.
Lal Singh said that Vikramaditya should resign from Congress if he remembers the role played by the Congress party in the exile of Maharaja Hari Singh. It is totally unethical that he is contesting the election like his father (Dr Karan Singh) on the ticket of Congress. He said Congress is the party who is responsible for all the problems of Jammu and Kashmir. Congress party was responsible for the exile of Maharaja Hari Singh. Earlier, Vikramaditya Singh was in PDP, which always said that `Maharaja was communal’. Now, PDP is also extending support to the Congress- NC for the destruction of Jammu.
He appealed to the Jammu people to understand the nefarious designs of all the parties. All the parties are known for their notorious activities aimed at dividing people on communal lines for getting the votes of Jammu province. Lal Singh said that DSSP is a party purely to represent the sentiments of the Jammu province which has always got shabby treatment both from the state as well as the national parties.
Attired in his traditional Dogra dress with turban, Ch Lal Singh led a massive rally from his Gandhi Nagar Jammu residence to Kathua DC Office.
