Bhalla terms BJP Govt proved disastrous for IIOJK

Jammu, September 01 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Vice President of Indian National Congress Jammu and Kashmir chapter, Raman Bhalla has said that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government has proved disastrous in the territory as it failed in reaching out to the common man and address public issues.

Interacting with aggrieved people of Langer Ward 68, Greater Kailash area of Gandhi Nagar constituency in Jammu, Bhalla said Jammu and Kashmir has been reduced to the level of administrative unit and the glory of the territory has been snatched and ruined at the hands of BJP. He added that even after conversion of J&K into a union territory on October 31, the issue of domicile safeguard and job safety and security has been left unaddressed. “The future of lakhs of unemployed youth is in jeopardy,” he added.

Bhalla said the present dispensation is turning a blind eye towards the apprehensions and concerns of people of J&K, especially the Jammu region. Taking a dig at the Indian government, Bhalla claimed that Jammu region is reeling under shortage of various basic requirements but BJP government is unmoved. He said the government lacks approach which is based on consistency, clarity, conviction and creating only mess making people to suffer unnecessarily without any fault of theirs.

The Congress leader said the BJP government in a bid to demonstrate its powers and authority had resorted to such undemocratic move which was not in tune with the concept of liberal democracy. He said the BJP government has failed to address political and developmental aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

Asserting that the BJP government in IIOJK proved disastrous and ominous in every aspect, Bhalla said that amid the administrative disarray, the BJP was only indulging in flip flops and opportunist politics. He maintained in the last seven years BJP has failed to take any cognizance on the coveted projects which had been gathering dust for last seven years.
