SUCHERGARH, Sept 19: Former minister and PCC vice president, Raman Bhalla today alleged that country was paying price for the failure of BJP Government on every front.
Addressing party workers meeting at Suchetgarh in Jammu Rural today, Bhalla claimed that in the last seven years, BJP Govt has failed on several fronts, with the result India is paying a heavy price for it. He claimed India has the maximum number of unemployed people despite BJP’s tall promises.
Bhalla claimed that 61 lakh government jobs are lying vacant. The Government has failed to fill up these vacancies. The farmers are protesting for nine long months without a solution in sight. The high prices of LPG, diesel, petrol, edible oil, pulses, daily essential items are making lives of people difficult.
He claimed demonetisation and GST have crippled the economy and there has been shutdown of MSMEs and small businesses as a result, as investment in the consumption chain is completely broken.”Still, you have put India on sale for a few friends of yours and which is why, it is important that we are calling it the ‘Punjipati Poojan Divas’ (crony capitalist friends day),” he said.
District Jammu Rural president Hari Singh Chib deliberated upon various day today problems being faced by the public in the absence of any elected Govt said that the onus is on the BJP which got huge mandate in the last Assembly and Lok Sabha elections as well as the current Lok Sabha elections besides being the ruling party at the Centre and J&K being under direct Central rule. He said that it is most unfortunate that the common people have no medium to raise their voice for basic necessities like water, power, healthcare and education due to the neglect of the BJP representatives.
He said people have to come on roads to express their anger and seek redressal of their genuine grievances. The utter failure of BJP which had the mandate of Jammu region since 2014 to carry forward the projects initiated by the previous Govt both at State and Centre and to upgrade the infrastructure and argument various supply schemes, have resulted into total mess and several projects either standstill or going on snail’s paces, Chib added.
Senior DCC/BCC leaders Mohan Choudhary, Sarpanch Ravinder Singh, Suresh Dogra, Amrit Bali, Dr Karan Bhagat, Kuldeep Raj and others also spoke on the occasion.
