BJP has lost confidence of both rural and urban populace: Harsh

Early Times Report
RAMNAGAR, June 24: Accusing the erstwhile BJP-PDP government of divesting the rural and far flung areas of their due share of developmental grants, Harsh Dev Singh expressed grave concern over the pathetic developmental scenario in the said areas with people denied even the basic civic amentias. He was addressing several public meetings during his tour of Loudra Village of Ramnagar constituency.
Criticizing the BJP-PDP for gross neglect of remote areas during its three and half year rule, he lamented that various flagship schemes launched in the past for development and uplift ment of the rural poor had totally collapsed with people's confidence having been completely shaken in the prevalent system. He regretted that not only had the newly announced schemes including projects under PM's Rs 80,000 crore package failed to take off but the already existing schemes had also become defunct with the govt and its ministers totally unaware of the rural woes. He said that rural areas which had over whelming voted BJP to power under the mistaken belief of 'Achhe Din' were brazenly betrayed and cheated and were repenting their decision.
Making a mention of various villages of Ramnagar constituency, Singh said that not only was the condition of roads deplorable, but the people were facing the worst nightmares due to chaotic power supply, ration shortage and drinking water crises in the constituency.
Ridiculing an untutored BJP, Harsh Dev Singh took a pot shot at its senior leadership for crying hoarse over Jammu's neglect during party rally in Parade ground Jammu held yesterday deliriously oblivious of the fact that they themselves were ruling at the centre and in the state for the last around four years. He said that despite being in power they made demands pertaining to early completion of Artificial Tawi Lake, settlement of PoJK and other migrants, action against desecration of temples, holiday on Maharaja Hari Singh birthday besides other issues.
The imbecile leaders failed to realize that being in power they had to take decisions and not to make demands, he added.
He further said while in Assembly they said leaders had acquiesced in anti-Jammu decisions including the rollback on the new Industrial policy, imposition of Jazia on Mata Vaishno Devi and Sri Amar Nath Yatra pilgrims, no to CBI probe in Rasana case, besides 'no' to Dogra Certificates for Jammu youth they made feeble noises and vague statements during their press conference merely for public consumption lampooning the BJP for its timidity and subterfuge, he said that there was no need now for it to camouflage its intent as the people had recognized its real face behind its deceptive facades and would give it a befitting reply at the appropriate time. He said that BJP had lost the confidence of both the rural and urban populace.
