Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, Feb 4: Former minister and senior Congress leader Raman Bhalla today said that BJP has mastery of falsehood and fake slogans and pursued destructive and divisive politics in the country.
Interacting with people in Bahu Fort area of Gandhinagar constituency today, Bhalla said that Congress always strengthen democracy and countered the anti-national and anti-democratic forces at the cost of sacrifices. He said Congress is the only secular and unifying force in the country which strengthened the secularism.
Bhalla said that tremendous development had taken place during Congress regime in J&K which benefitted each and every section of society and these developments are visible even today.
Since the BJP came to power all developments works have been put on hold. He said works of many important projects have been abandoned or delayed and the people are left to suffer. He attacked BJP for misleading people on every count and said that BJP will never succeed to implement its communal and divisive agenda.
Bhalla said that J&K BJP leaders always pleaded that they are the well wishers of Jammu region but after getting huge mandate in 2014 Assembly elections, they compromised the interests of Jammu for the lust of power, but the people of Jammu are now matured enough to teach this party a lesson.He claimed that majority of people in Jammu maintained that no new developments but only facelifts of previous works were done in the area under BJP rule.
“BJP was in power at the Centre and in the erstwhile J&K State too, it was easy for the party to forward issues of common masses through their Government in J&K to the Union Ministry concerned, for mitigating the sufferings of people but they took them casually,” Bhalla added.
He pointed out that there was total chaos and confusion among people as BJP leadership has failed to remove peoples’ apprehensions. “On one hand, there is complete uncertainty in J&K, while on the other people are confronting with failure of the administration to solve day today problems”, he said, adding that most parts of the city are facing scarcity of basic amenities.
