NAGROTA, Jan 2: Former MLA and senior Congress leader Shiv Dev Singh today lambasted BJP for its failure to represent the sentiments of Jammu people and not fulfilling r the promises made to the electorate during the 2014 Assembly elections.
Addressing party workers meeting on the occasion of New Year at Nagrota, Shiv Dev Singh said there is a strong resentment among the people of Nagrota constituency against previous Government as it has not fulfilled its promises made at the time of Assembly elections.
“The previous Government of PDP-BJP has failed to provide basic amenities to the people of Nagrota Constituency. The common masses have been facing problems like acute shortage of drinking water, dilapidated condition of roads, Government ration scarcity, lack of health care facilities and many more,” he said.
Drawing attention towards terrorism in Kashmir, Shiv Dev Singh said that people of the State and the entire nation want restoration of peace and normalcy by containing terrorism in Kashmir Valley, which has been witnessing fresh recruitment and increased violence. “Merely strongly worded statements will not help to control the situation on the ground,” he added.
Shiv Dev Singh exhorted the party workers to reach to the people in every nook and corner in order to make people aware about the programmes and policies of Congress Party. He asked the Congress workers to expose the falsehood of BJP in Jammu region, which sought mandate on false promises and unachievable slogans besides divisive agenda.
Asking people to vote and support Congress candidates in the forthcoming elections in J&K to ensure developmental of their respective areas, he cautioned people against nefarious designs of BJP which can go to any extend to win these elections. “BJP will not hesitate to adopt deceitful tactics to befool the innocent voters”, he said and exhorted the people to teach BJP a lesson in forthcoming polls.
The senior Congress leader also asked the recently elected Sarpanchs to address the grievances of people with full dedication and also take up their issues with the authorities concerned.
Sarpanchs Kishore Sharma, Kishanpur Rumal Singh and Vijay Sharma, Rajinder Singh, Balbir Singh, Vicky Sharma and Babu Khan were also present on the occasion.
