JAMMU, Sept 26: Former Deputy Chief Minister and MLA Gandhi Nagar, Kavinder Gupta convened a meeting of all the 26 contesting candidates for JMC polls at his residence today.
While addressing the meeting he asked the candidates to campaign in their respective areas with dedication and elaborate about all the welfare schemes launched by the Central Government, Developmental works taken up in their wards, initiatives taken in health sector, major projects and education sector.
He urged the candidates to abide by the guidelines of the Election Commission and spend the money within the limit set by the Commission. He highlighted the achievements of BJP in Jammu said that the party has ensured the implementation of every scheme started by the Narendra Modi led NDA Government at the ground level. He said that BJP has worked to see that every single scheme reaches the targeted population.
Kavinder said that after being elected to the JMC, corporators have to play a vital role in the transformation of Jammu city to Smart Jammu City. The fund flow after the ULB formation would get started and there’s a lot of scope of making the City of Temples a Model City in the coming years and this shall only be possible if our candidates are elected to the Corporation. A comprehensive plan for the Smart City is in pipe line, he added.
Kavinder said that Opposition has turned issueless and hence it is playing with the public sentiments, but today’s public is well aware of ground facts. BJP will surely install its Mayor early next month, he added.
The BJP leader further said that after being elected as MLA, he has been successful in developing the Constituency and tried his best to be available for the people of the Constituency round the clock. He highlighted the quality works being executed in the area and urged the general public to be vigilant during the course of the execution of the work.
He said some leaders of Congress are befooling the public but they will be shown their place in forthcoming local bodies’ elections. Lambasting the earlier rulers of the State and at Centre, he said, only members of one family were aware about the funds being provided by the Union Government, but now there is total transparency and every citizen has the information about what is being sanctioned for the State. He said that the Narendra Modi Government has given a specific stress on the development of State of Jammu & Kashmir. Vinay Gupta, Ankush Gupta, Harbans Choudhary and Perminder Singh also gave some tips to the contesting candidates.
