HIRANAGAR, Apr 15: Former minister and Congress contesting candidate from Jammu-Poonch Lok Sabha candidate Raman Bhalla and former DyCM Tara Chand, today continued campaign in favour of Congress candidate from Udhampur – Doda constituency Vikramaditya Singh in Hiranagar and appealed people vote and support Vikramaditya Singh for the development of constituency.
Speaking on the occasion, Vikramaditya Singh came down heavily on BJP candidate Dr Jitendra Singh for creating a hype over ‘development’ which in reality is nowhere on ground with people craving for basic amenities like never before. He claimed that the reality of the castle of imaginary ‘development’ which Jitendra Singh has created can be well gauged by looking into the miseries of farmers, jobless youth, border dwellers, ailing and other sections of society which have increased manifold after he took over as MP of this constituency.
In a sharp reaction against Dr Jitendra Singh’s questioning on Congress party’s role in the development of the Constituency, Vikramaditya retorted back saying instead of focusing on matters confronting the people of the constituency in the last over four years, sitting MP who has no connection with the constituency, is now trying to deceive people by raising non-issues and diverting their attention from joblessness, farmers’ plight, poor healthcare facilities and dilapidated power, water and roads infrastructure by blaming Congress for his indifference towards this constituency.
Speaking on the occasion, Bhalla urged people to vote and support for Congress party in the coming parliamentary election. He said Congress has always work for the uplift of the working class especially farmers and downtrodden in the country. “UPA Government has enacted various important projects in past for the development our country, some of them are also implemented in Jammu-Kashmir which had already shown positive results,” he advocated.
Bhalla said that BJP leaders have nothing to boast about except taking credit for sowing seeds of mistrust between various segments of people in order to further their motivated agenda. He cautioned the BJP not to test the State’s spirit of inclusiveness, saying the people will foil all their machinations by maintaining unity and amity.
Former Dy CM Tara Chand said farmers are unable to cultivate approximately 10,000 kanals of land ahead of barbed fencing and the remaining 10,000 kanals of land is not fully utilised either. He said BJP has failed to solve our problems despite its Government both at the Centre and state. He assailed the BJP for betraying border dwellers along Line of Control and International Border in the State, saying the lofty promises made during 2014 elections evaporated soon after forming the Governments in New Delhi and Jammu and Kashmir.
