JAMMU, Dec 30: Taking a dig at National Conference, former Minister and patron of Dogra Swabhiman Sanghthan Choudhary Lal Singh today alleged that the `crocodile’ tears shed by senior Abdullah in Parliament were a drama for holding early election in the State.
“It was a desperate bid to gain the nation’s sympathy for the region to which he belonged and the community to which he called for boycotting the recently held Municipal and Panchayat elections,” he said while addressing a public meeting at Gurha Bakshi Nagar, here today.
Lal Singh said that it was not Kashmir but Jammu and Ladakh, which suffered huge socio-cultural and politico-economic losses during all the regimes. “Ninety percent of the jobs of the State Government and semi- Government institutions have been occupied by the people of Kashmir and still senior Abdullah is running with a begging bowl for the election to get his family rule the State,” he added.
The former Minister called for unity of Dogras and appealed to the masses to come under the banner of Dogra Swabhiman Sanghtan. He said that DSS is the only organization which is committed for the cause and the development of Jammu. “Dogra Swabhiman Sanghtan is committed for the implementation of all the points listed in the vision t document, released recently,” he added.
During the programme number of youth, women and students joined the DSS and ensured that they will carry the vision of DSS to every household and made a public announcement that no party or person without the vision of DSS shall be allowed to enter in Jammu and there will be mass boycott of all other political parties which always promoted the interest of Kashmir. Youth from Poonch district came all the way to join DSS and assured that they will carry the vision of DSS in the border areas of Poonch Rajouri in every house hold.
Dr Hari Dutt Shishu, general secretary DSS, while addressing the gathering, cautioned the people to be vigilant about the nefarious designs of different political parties which over the years have betrayed the cause of Jammu and made its people to suffer innumerable losses.
K D Singh, Kuljeet Singh, Advocate B S Jamwal and Navneet Kaur also addressed the gathering.
