Secure jobs for locals, restore statehood: Tara Chand
4/8/2021 12:13:31 AM
Early Times Report
JAMMU, Apr 7: Former Deputy Chief Minister, Tara Chand said that the decision of the BJP government of downgrading of the state had been full of shock and offence for the nationalist people of J&K who felt betrayed and downgraded post abrogation of Special Status.
Not only had the BJP regime dismantled the oldest Dogra state and demoted it as UT, but it had deprived its people of certain special privileges envisioned by the late Maharaja for the welfare of his subjects especially those pertaining to lands and jobs.
Congress Party today held massive rally at Chhamb Constituency organized by Block Congress Committee Khour which was addressed by former DyCM Tara Chand, JKPCC Vice President GM Saroori, Former Minister RS Chib, Former Minister Jugal Kishore Sharma, Former Minister District President Kathua Dr Manohar Lal Sharma, Former Minister and Chairman J&K Kissan Cell Congress Ch Gharu Ram, Former Dy Chairman Legislative Council Jahangir Mir Ex MLC Subash Gupta Ex MLC Naresh Gupta, Adv Mohinder Bhardwaj, PCC Secretary Narinder Sharma, Adv Rajinder Sharma, Bharat Priye, Corporator Gourav Chopra, Varun Magotra and others.
Addressing the mega rally of party worker's at Naryana in Chhamb Constituency, Tara Chand lambasted the BJP for having done the greatest disservice to J&K by demoting it to the level of UT. After the abrogation of Article 370, opening of lands and jobs to outsiders come as a rude shock for the people of J&K.
He said that land and jobs were no more secured for the local people and they feared that their interests, culture and identity were under grave threat.
Ruing the country's plunging economy with GDP falling to all time low, Tara Chand said that back breaking inflation and rise in unemployment had brought the growth rate to the grinding halt. He said that skyrocketing prices of fuel and essential commodities had robbed the pockets of the common man. Alleging brazen disregard for the concerns of the educated unemployed and underemployed youth of J&K by the incumbent govt, Tara Chand regretted that discontent amongst youth was growing with each passing day.
He cautioned the BJP government to refrain from downplaying the sentiments of people of Dogra land who gave it massive mandate in elections. With state BJP's having lost its credibility in Jammu region, it was Congress alone which could fill the void and provide an alternative to the people of J&K.
On this occasion many important people joined the Congress party under the leadership of Tara Chand.
