VIJAYPUR, Dec 24: Former minister and senior National Conference leader, Surjeet Singh Slathia reiterated that his party was committed to equitable development of all the three regions and sub-regions of the State.
Addressing a public meeting at Gho Brahmana in Ramgarh today, Slathia said that the BJP and PDP led Coalition Government failed in delivering on all fronts, as a result of which Jammu region suffered the most. He said the hysteria created by the BJP over discrimination with Jammu fell flat as it subjected the people who mandated them to power to lot of miseries, especially on the development and employment fronts.
Elaborating on the BJP-PDP’s governance deficit in J&K, Slathia said that they were working at cross purposes. He said the problems of the people were pushed to backburner while controversial issues were being raised and encouraged to divert the attention of people from failure of the Government on all fronts.
Slathia referred to BJP’s colossal failures and said the people have now realized their mistake of handing over the reins to in-experienced and irrational elements who knew nothing but dividing people by inciting passions. He said National Conference alone can ensure Jammu and Kashmir as a united and prosperous State and urged the people to strengthen the party at grass roots level.
He also urged the National Conference cadre to be ready for meeting the challenges faced to the State and said that concerted efforts are required to be made to further intensifying public outreach programme for identifying the difficulties faced by the people and seeking their redressal.
Those who spoke on the occasion included Sarpanchs- Rampal Sharma, Bharat Bhushan, Baldev Raj, Jasbir Singh and Tara Singh besides Ganesh Sharma and Darshan Kumar.
