JAMMU, June 3: As the PDP-BJP Coalition Government has completed more than three years in office, it has been only a story of controversies between the coalition partners so far while they have miserably failed to honour the promises made with the people.
Addressing public meeting at Preet Nagar in Digiana today, Bhalla said during the tenure of the Government, the coalition partners have failed to deliver on any of the promises they made to the people in their ‘Agenda of Alliance’.
Launching a scathing attack on Narendra Modi led BJP Govt at the Centre for remaining flop on demonetization, bringing back the black money from foreign banks, contain inflation, control situation along the borders with Pakistan and also in Kashmir, Bhalla questioned the Modi Government for its four years of achievements in office and termed the big celebrations being organized by BJP Government as an attempt to mislead the people of the country.
The BJP manifesto said its Government would take strict measures to check price rise and set up special courts to stop hoarding and black marketing. However, no special courts have been set up so far. The BJP-led NDA Government has failed to control the prices of petroleum products as well. The country is reeling under highest ever petrol and diesel prices. Besides the petroleum products, the prices of other commodities are also hovering on the higher side.
Bhalla alleged that PDP-BJP Coalition Government has failed in providing basic amenities like water, power and ration to the common person of the State. Bhalla also said that Government is shying away from its duty to conduct urban local body and Panchayat elections. Formation of ULBs are must to empower the people of urban areas”, he said and added that in a democratic system it was necessary to make representative character of all democratic institutions to ensure people’s participation in these institutions.
Terming the promises made by PDP-BJP Govt as “mere bluffs”, Bhalla said that voters are fed up with the “sheer opportunism” of these two parties. He said both the parties took the extreme positions on most of the emotional issues and exploited their respective constituencies, with a false and deceptive promise to keep each other out of power, if voted in strength.
