JAMMU, Mar 17: Dogra Sadar Sabha’s Political Affairs Committee has drawn thrust lines as the elections are drawing nearer in the State and also resolved to go to the public with these issues seeking their opinion and support , if the DSS goes for contesting elections.
Keeping with the sentiments of general public and Dogras in particular, the members strongly voiced that for the last several years no political party or political leader of Jammu has ever bothered to project or even support the burning issues of Jammu province.
