DODA, June 21:  In connection with “Bharat Bachao Andolan”, Pradesh Youth Congress (PYC) organized a convention at Doda to formally launch the campaign for exposing misdeeds of BJP and its allied groups.
PCC general secretary and former Minister, Abdul Majid Wani, presided over the convention wherein Shishpal Singh Keharwala I/C JKPYC and PYC chief Pranav Shagotra were main speakers.
Speaking on the occasion, Shagotra and Singh told party workers that this campaign has been launched to expose failures of Narendra Modi led NDA, which has betrayed people of the country.
Youth Congress leaders said that during the last four years of NDA regime, nothing has been done to solve day to day problems of the people. They said that all promised made by the BJP with the people remained only on papers and BJP leadership has shamelessly indulged into befooling the people by one or other tricks.
“BJP led NDA Government is protecting only interests of corporate world while  common masses are bearing brunt of the pro-business class policies being propagated by the BJP Government”,  they said and drew attention of the workers towards unprecedented hike in the prices of petrol and diesel.
Youth Congress leaders further said that security scenario in the country was worsening because Union Government had compromised with nation’s security for petty political gains.
Speaking on the occasion, Abdul Majid Wani highlighted local problems and said that the previous PDP-BJP Government had befooled people by making false promises. He said that tenure of PDP-BJP Government from March 1, 2015 to June 20, 2018 would be remembered as darkest period in the political history of J&K.
He highlighted issues like blockage of payments in MGNREGA and SSA. He further pointed out that promise to regularize adhoc, consolidated and daily rated workers of all Government departments remained only on papers. He also demanded fulfillment of genuine demand of Patwaries, Anangwari workers, restoration of electrification of far flung areas of Doda region.
Those who were present on the occasion, included  Rashid Malik,  Pankaj Sharma, Vijay Hiteshi,  Waseem Raja, Asif Gattoo, Parvesh Sharma, Kulbir Pathania, Vipul Sharma, Firdous Mingnoo, Javed Lone and  Sanjeev Manhas.
