Early Times Report
Jammu, Dec10: Former Minister and senior Congress leader Raman Bhalla today criticized the BJP Govt for not fulfilling their promises which they made during the elections and termed them as gimmicks to win elections. Interacting with aggrieved people of Beli Charana area of Gandhi Nagar constituency, Bhalla on Tuesday said that several promises that BJP made during election turned out to be mere political gimmicks as nothing happened on the ground.He said that no new schemes were launched for the upliftment of farmers, women and low incomes groups of the society. For the lower income groups of the society, Govt fails to envision a minimum income guarantee programme. Bhalla said government has miserably failed to live up to the expectations of the people and there is a strong resentment among the people against this government as it has not fulfilled its promises made at the time of elections. Bhalla also said that disillusionment of people with government is growing, as governance is at the lowest depth and development has taken nose dive in JK UT."
Will the BJP say how many educated unemployed youth were provided jobs in their tenure; why the flagship projects of AIIMS and three Medical Colleges are still on papers; what happened to Smart City project; why implementation of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana could not take off; why Artificial Lake Project and Tawi River Front Project on the pattern of so-called Sabarmati Project did not materialise; why the party failed to regularise the daily wagers and others despite a blueprint drawn by the previous government?" Bhalla fired a volley of questions.He also asked as to why the BJP governments at the Centre and in the state reduced the one-time settlement of POK refugees to a paltry Rs 5 lakh per family instead of the recommended Rs 25 lakh per family by the Congress led government.
He said the construction of an artificial lake and the construction of a pathway and parks along the bank of the Tawi on the pattern of the Sabarmati needed to be started on a war footing to develop Jammu as a tourist destination. He said the Bahu Fort cable car project should be completed at the earliest. The State Government had proposed a cable car project worth Rs 30 crore that aimed to connect the heritage sites like Bagh-e-Bahu, Mubarak Mandi complex, Mahamaya Temple, Bawe Wali Mata Temple, Peerkho etc. These projects have potential to highlight Jammu as independent tourist destination, but unending wait for their completion has dashed hopes of a generation, besides bleeding the exchequer profusely, Bhalla added.
