|Early Times Report|
Jammu, Sept 13: Urging upon the people to tight their shoes, for a decisive battle for restoration of honour and pride of dogras, Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP said that the time had come to give a befitting reply to those who had betrayed the trust of Jammu people.
He said the BJP leadership having utterly failed to redeem any of its pre poll promises with its electorates having further been cheated on a host of other issues by the said party, the disappointment of masses had reached its zenith with social, political organizations and civil society having virtually raised a banner of revolt.
He said that failure of BJP to get September 23rd, the birthday of Maharaja Hari Singh declared as holiday had deeply hurt the sentiment of Dogras cutting across party lines irrespective of caste, creed and colour. He was addressing a public meeting in Karan Nagar Ward No. 2 in JMC Jammu today.
Speaking on the occasion, Harsh Dev Singh said that besides its jiggery pokery over the issue of Rohingya deportation, the BJP had failed to get the much publicized Rasana case transferred to CBI despite its own leaders having made public commitments in this regard.
He said that failure to get the minutes of meeting related to Tribal affairs and settlement of nomads withdrawn, the BJP Ministers in the erstwhile regime had proved that their role was merely of pawns in the game of chess. They had failed to realized that they were only used by the Kashmir centric forces in furtherance of their idea of Greater Kashmir, remarked Harsh.
Prominent among those who spoke on the occasion included Manju Singh, Gagan Pratap, Parshotam Parihar, Partap Singh, Krishma Rajput, K.K Sharma, Vaishno Sharma, Shakti Singh, Nikhil Sharma, Raghav Talwar, Joginder Singh besides others.
