JAMMU, Nov 4: Senior Congress leader and Minister for PHE, Irrigation and Flood Control Sham Lal Sharma has maintained that it is his endeavor to develop the Akhnoor on modern lines and a model constituency in the State. For cherishing this dream, he has sought people’s support for another stint.
Addressing a convention of OBC people at village Bhamberwan near Akhnoor town, which was organized by the Vice Chairman, OBC Advisory Board, Kuldeep Raj Verma, Minister said there is no alternate to the Congress party which has historical background.
During the period of this party, the country and State has progressed steadfastly in all sectors, he said, adding that the party has multi-pronged planning and strategy to deal with the issues of unemployment, poverty and upliftment of weaker sections of the society. The programmes and policies of the Congress party are people friendly and millions of poor people have availed benefits of these schemes, Minister added.
Cautioning the people against the propaganda unleashed by the disruptive forces like BJP, PDP, NC and BSP against the Congress, Minister said that these unscrupulous forces appear at a particular season (during election) and try to spread false rumors and incite the sentiments of innocent people in the name of religion, caste, creed and color.
Referring to the development of Akhnoor constituency, Minister asked the people to compare his two consecutive tenures as representative of the Akhnoor constituency with previous 50 years and feel the difference themselves on ground.
Former MP Jammu-Poonch and veteran Congress leader, Madan Lal Sharma, Kuldeep Verma, several leaders of OBCs including, Pradhan Bansi Lal Verma, retired Superintendent of Police, Sardhari Lal and Sarpanch Sham Lal also addressed the gathering.
