The AICC leader exhorted party leaders and workers to get united to fight the BJP’s “wrong and anti-people policies,” urging them to strengthen the Congress Party at grass roots, as that, it is the Congress Party which has served and shall continue to serve the people.
Patil criticized the misgovernance of the BJP Government due to which the common masses are feeling cheated. She blamed the Government for failing to tackle prices and making life difficult for the common man.
“There is a significant increase in poverty and hunger, rule of falsehood and injustice in the country. Whoever raises his or her voice has to bear the brunt of the Government’s anger,” she added.

She said that public issues and grievances are piling up with the passage of every day but the Administration has failed to solve the basic issues.
JKPCC president slammed BJP for dividing and downgrading the J&K into UT to serve its political agenda. He said Congress Party is capable enough to fight against the BJPs vendetta politics, it will continue to highlight the price hike, rising unemployment, lack of development, misuse of agencies against the opponents at every appropriate forum to make BJP accountable and answerable to people.
He lashed out at the Central Govt for the unprecedented price hike and record unemployment besides failing to address the grievances of people of J&K on every count after promising massive development post-August 5, 2019.
Bhalla and Mir claimed that so far BJP rule has been of “mismanagement, immense despair and agony” and the country today stands at a stage where the common people are suffering from the wounds inflicted by the Government whereas Congress has been continuing its efforts to listen to grievances of aggrieved people in various areas of J&K.
