"BJP Mukt" Jammu is only solution to woes of Dogras: Harsh

Early Times Report

Ramnagar, Jan 29: Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) chairman Harshdev Singh today said, "Having exploited the gullibility of the people of Jammu by its seductive slogans and false rhetoric during elections and won 25 Assembly seats in pursuance thereof, the BJP had caused greatest embitterment in the hearts and minds of dogras during its 3½ rule.
Not only were the wishes and aspirations of the people trampled upon ruthlessly by the BJP leaders after their ascendance to power, but the very self respect and pride of dogras was bartered away for petty personal gains and lust of power, he lamented. Having failed to fulfil even a single promise made by them to their Jammu electorates in their vision document, the mandated BJP leaders worked as mere puppets of Mehbooba Mufti and promoted the Kashmir centric agenda in utter disregard for the sentiments of dogras, Mr. Singh. He was addressing huge public meetings in Panjgrain, Badhole and Dalsar villages of Ramnagar constituency today.
Flaying the BJP for bartering away its age old political philosophy for power sake, Singh said that in doing so it not only compromised with the remnants of its own dignity but with the honour and pride of its people as well. "Issue of Art 370 and 35A which formed the ideological DNA of BJP were pushed into the oblivion despite they being sold in elections with a big splash. The slogans on grant of PRCs to west Pak refuges and to children of daughters of J&K married outside the state also met the same fate. The policy of appeasement of separatists and anti-nationals was relentlessly pursued with release of around 11,000 stone-pelters together with a new scheme for rehabilitation of surrendered militants.
The saffron rule witnessed registration of FIRs against brave-hearts and valiant Jawans, disregard for martyrs and coverage of deceased stone-pelters under SRO-43. It was the saffron flavoured govt which cautioned the Army to exercise restraint and not to retaliate despite being assaulted, attacked stoned, slapped, manhandled humiliated, taunted and jeered. While the BJP compromised over its avowed fundamentals, it did the greatest disservice to the people of Jammu region by surrendering their already negligible share in services and development projects, said Singh. "When AIIMS was sanctioned for Jammu, it was offered on platter to Kashmir, courtesy the BJP leaders. And the people of Jammu region had to resort to agitational course for getting the same.
The people of Jammu region were again cheated over the issue of declaration of holiday on 23rd September, the birthday of Maharaja Hari Singh despite it being a commitment of the BJP. Again, the delusional plans of Artificial Tawi Lake, Smart City, Dogra Heritage projects and beautification of historical Raghunath Bazaar failing to take off have caused huge disenchantment amongst the people of Jammu. The saffron rule further saw the share of Jammu region falling to abysmally low levels in govt jobs with Jammu youth getting merely 4 to 5 % in several select lists issued by PSC and SSB and the mandated BJP leaders acting as mute spectators. The Rasana episode is a grim reminder of the BJP's wicked politicking ad its most petrifying conduct while in power. Not only did it deny CBI enquiry but joined the chorus of Kashmir centric leaders in dubbing dogras as 'rapists supporters'.
Accusing the BJP of having inflicted multiple dents upon dogra pride, Singh said that people of Jammu will have to unite and make herculean efforts to straighten the same.
Calling upon the people to join hands irrespective of caste, creed and colour to overthrow the BJP juggernaut, Singh said that "BJP Mukt" Jammu alone was the solution to the woes of Jammu region.
