12/6/2019 9:31:09 PM
Early Times Report
Jammu, Dec 6: Questioning the continued blockade of internet facilities & imposition of unreasonable toll taxes, in Jammu region besides additional toll tax at Lakhanpur and failure to concede the genuine demands of agitating lawyers and Sarpanchs & Panchs for clearing 1000 crore MGNREGA liabilities, Congress has fully justified the different modes of protests being adopted by various quarters including certain political, social, students, youth, trade and transport bodies.
Condemning the detention of former minister Harsh Dev Singh and his other party colleagues by the police in Jammu today and terming it as an undemocratic action, JKPCC Chief Spokesperson Mr. Ravinder Sharma said that the Government of India and UT administration in Jammu and Kashmir is continuously adopting indifferent and insensitive attitude towards the genuine demands from various sections of the society including different political, social, trade, transport, students and youth organizations especially to lift the internet ban and roll back of Jazya type toll tax in Jammu and other anti people policies. The government is suppressing all genuine voices of dissent which is totally anti-democratic approach, he said. The Government tendency to neglect, ignore and reject any such demand least caring for the sufferings of people on various fronts like economics, trade, commerce, academic and social levels has forced different sections to lodge their peaceful protest and express resentment in different peaceful forms to make the government to move on these issues, which is justified in the overall interests of general public, he said.
