JAMMU, Dec 23: Former Deputy Chief Minister and senior Congress leader, Tara Chand has exhorted upon the party workers to expose the BJP’s failures so as to take on the saffron brigade in coming Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in the State.
Addressing a meeting of party workers at Chak Malal in Khour area today, former DyCM asked the party workers to strengthen Congress and also expose the failures of the BJP in the area. He asked the party activists and BCC functionaries to gear up for the forth coming Assembly elections. He said the Election Commission of India may announce elections in J&K any time in near future. There is also need to strengthen party’s respective cells, at booth and block level, he added.
Tara Chand further said that results of the recently held Assembly elections in five states reflected that the Congress was the most acceptable secular force in the country. He said only Congress Party can fulfill its election promises, adding that the newly formed Congress Governments in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhatisgarh fulfilled their poll promises of waiving off farmers’ loans within few hours of Government formation there.
He said the need of the hour was to reach out to the people, especially youth, in every nook and corner in order to make them aware of the programmes and policies of the Congress Party. He said there was great opportunity for the party to emerge stronger in view of the BJP’s betrayal and failures. Several other BCC functionaries also spoke on the occasion.
