Power Changes Priorities
8/7/2020 12:08:03 AM

Three toll plazas coming up within the radius of 120 kilometers in Jammu region have triggered outrage among the people.
A common man from Jammu has been asking the local BJP leaders are these toll plazas a return gift for supporting the saffron party? Is this the way to fulfill the promise of ending discrimination with Jammu region?
People of Jammu have been vehemently opposing the setting up of toll plazas so close to each other for a long time, but the local BJP leaders have failed to raise this issue with the Union Ministry for Roadways.
They have just acted as mute spectators and in a way they have conveyed to the people that they should accept these toll plazas as part of their lives and stop cribbing about it.
When BJP was in opposition it had opposed the setting up of the toll plazas tooth and nail and the party leaders had staged multiple protests along with the common people. But after coming into power, the BJP leaders tried to tell the people that they cannot be a part of the protest as their priorities have changed.
It’s not only the toll plazas which have upset the people of Jammu, there are many reasons for them to be angry, a common man in Jammu believes that the local BJP leaders failed to fulfill their promises and left him in lurch. Jammu people went out of way to support the BJP in 2014 and 2019 parliamentary polls and even in 2014 assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir, but in return the local BJP leaders have not done what they were expected to do.
Jammu has been without 4G internet for the past one year but local leaders of the saffron party have remained tightlipped over the issue. They could have pressed for restoration of the internet and convinced the Centre that Jammu people have got nothing to do with terrorism and the terrorists. But they just maintained silence and turned a blind eye towards the hardships being faced by the common people of Jammu.
It’s unfortunate that Jammu has been left leaderless as the Congress party has failed to rise to the occasion. The Congress leaders, who were considered as stalwarts, have gone into oblivion and many of them have changed their sides. A common Jammuitie is feeling let down and is waiting for assembly elections to be held so that a message can be sent that he cannot be taken for granted.
