JAMMU, Aug 27: Former minister and senior PCC leader Mula Ram has criticized the BJP Government for downgrading the security cover of former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh.
Addressing workers meeting in Raipur- Domana constituency here, the former minister said that the SPG security cover of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should not be withdrawn selectively.
“Withdrawing SPG cover of Manmohan Singh who has just entered Rajya Sabha again and is active politically is a new moral low by the BJP Government at the Centre,” Mula Ram said.
PCC leader criticized the previous BJP Government for its failure to provide basic amenities to the people of the State. He said that the people of Jammu regions are facing hardships on account of shortage of drinking water, defunct street lights, dilapidated condition of roads, unemployment and many others due to step-motherly treatment given by the previous BJP Government in J&K.
Mula Ram said that the previous Government has indulged into the corrupt practices leaving aside the mandate and promises made with the people of Jammu region during the 2014 Assembly elections.
Hari Singh Chib, president District Congress Committee Jammu- Rural, while addressing the gathering, targeted the BJP-led Central Govt over growing unemployment in the country asking BJP to clear its stand over 2 crore jobs promise made for every year with the people of the country during the last Parliamentary polls.
“BJP leaders are exploiting the poor people and down trodden sections of the society by showing them such dreams, which they cannot fulfill,” Chib said, adding that the BJP Government failed to fulfill its promise of providing two crore jobs every year to the youth of our country.
During the 2014 elections, PM Modi had promised of ‘Acche Din’ (good days), which included (providing) two crore jobs every year. In five years, this sums up to 10 crore (jobs).
Chib said that the graph of employment in the Jammu and Kashmir has achieved a new height in the Jammu and Kashmir by crossing all the previous records.
