Govt machinery, Public exchequer being abused to make BJP rally successful: Harsh
2/1/2019 11:51:52 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 1: Alleging abuse of Govt machinery and public exchequer for February 3 Vijaypur rally of PM Narendra Modi, Harsh Dev Singh JKNPP Chairman and Former Minister today said that the BJP had promoted a new culture of political corruption for which it was answerable to the people of state and the nation.
Addressing media persons, he said that for all practical purposes, the February 3 rally was a political rally organized on the eve of elections. He said that the central BJP leaders including Ram Madhav and Avinash Rai Khanna, who had no role in the Govt, were camping in Jammu and were personally supervising the arrangements for the rally. The two leaders had even publically announced that PM Narendra Modi would launch the election campaign from the Vijaypur rally, he divulged. And if it was a political rally, how come that several crores of tax papers' money were being spent for the said rally to promote the interests of a particular political party, questioned Singh.
Pointing towards the huge govt expenditure being incurred on hiring of around 4000 buses and matadors for ferrying people from various parts of the Jammu province to Vijaypur, he said that the sectoral officers in various District and Tehsils had been directed to place these vehicles at the disposal of BJP 'Mandal Pardhans'. "The govt officers had further been assigned duties to provide refreshment at govt expense to the participants in the rally.
"Is this the kind of Accountability and Transparency that the BJP had promised during the last elections? Is this what they call as good governance? Is there none to take cognizance of such brazen authoritarianism and abuse of power and authority? Will the saner elements in the civil society come forward to oppose such blatant defiance of norms and democratic values? Will the Election Commission of India (ECI) take note of such brazen impudence and disregard for rule of law by the powerful and mighty out to make a mockery of democracy? Questioned Singh.
Seeking personal indulgence of President of India and ECI, he sought a white paper on govt expenditure being incurred on the aforesaid political rally of the BJP and fixation of responsibility in respect thereof.
