KATHUA, June 14: Former minister and JKPCC working president, Raman Bhalla today alleged that youth of the country are facing massive brunt of unemployment during last eight years rule by the BJP.
While addressing party workers and other functionaries at `Nav Sankalp Chintan Shivir’ today held at Kathua today Bhalla said that during last eight years of BJP rule, the youth of the country are bearing the brunt of intolerable levels of unemployment. The fire of inflation has engulfed every person and family.
Bhalla said skyrocketing prices of petrol, diesel, flour, edible oil, pulses, vegetables and daily essentials have made life difficult for people. Unemployment and inflation have now become a curse for the citizens of the country. No section of the society has remained untouched by the apathy of the ruling Government. India is passing through a period of severe economic slowdown. For the first time in 75 years, the country’s rupee has tumbled to 77.50 against a dollar. Every single public asset of the country built over the last seventy years is being sold arbitrarily by the BJP Government.
JKPCC leader lamented how after coming to power BJP in 2014 led to the current situation of the country facing multiple crisis. In the last eight years, the aspirations and expectations for the country’s success, progress and social harmony, have been deliberately drowned in doom, gloom and darkness.
Speaking on the occasion, Ex- MLA Th Balbir Singh said that to cover up its unforgivable failures, the BJP Government is creating an atmosphere of communal disharmony in the country. Minorities, Dalits and the poor are being targeted. The BJP’s hunger for power is sowing the seeds of hatred on the basis of religion and caste. India’s pluralism, brotherhood and inclusive values are being attacked. There is a malicious conspiracy to divide India on the basis of caste, faith, food, dress, language, and region. The BJP’s relentless efforts to implement its ideological agenda of fundamentalism have pushed India’s economy to the margins, he added.
During camp issues relating to the welfare and well-being and the trampling upon of the rights of the Schedule Castes, Schedule Tribes, Backward Classes, Minorities, Kisans and Khet Mazdoors, religious and linguistic minorities, women, social justice and empowerment, empowerment of the young were deliberated. In addition, matters relating to organizational restructuring and strengthening were also discussed.
Prominent among those present on the occasion include Ch Hussain Ali Wafa, Pankaj Dogra, Nirdosh Sharma, Kulbir Pathania, Pawan Sharma, Rabinder Paul Singh, Rakesh Sharma, Kajal Rajput and others.
