JAMMU, Dec 10: Former Minister and senior Congress leader, Raman Bhalla today alleged that every section of the society including farmers, traders and Government employees are fed up with the ‘anti-people’ dispensation led by BJP.
He was addressing a public gathering in Bishnah while campaigning in favour of Congress candidate, Manohar Lal Motton for DDC elections at Panchayat Sehora.
Bhalla flayed BJP and talked about installation of series of toll plazas at Lakhanpur, Sarore, Akhnoor, Ramban and Ban Nagrota.
He also criticized the auctioning and privatization of PSUs like SICOP, JK Minerals, JK Cements and JKI and termed it against the larger interests of public.
The Congress leader slammed the Government for having failed to regularise temporary, contractual, casual, daily rated and need based employees and workers.
He lashed at the Centre and UT Govts for continuously depriving the youth and students of 4G services in J&K.
Bhalla also said that foundation of the country has been laid on secular ideals and harmony amongst different sections keeping in view of the pluralistic character of the nation and those spreading hatred are weakening the nation. He urged people to defeat the designs of such forces which can disturb and destroy the secular fabric of our nation.
He claimed that Congress alone can ensure equitable development while keeping a close focus on neglected, remote and backward areas.
The former minister lamented that unemployment and inflation in J&K is all time high, financial health of the people was not good while the present pandemic has snatched away the source of livelihood from billions.
