Former minister slammed BJP Govt for acting as a mute spectator to the sufferings of the people from Jammu and Kashmir. BJP’s tall claims of creating job and employment for the youths has turned mere hoax.

Seeking restoration of statehood to Jammu and Kashmir, Bhalla said the Cong people are on the roads to convey the voice of the people to the President of India.
