JKNPP protests, takes out rally against ‘politics of repression’

Early Times Report

Udhampur, July 29: Leading a massive procession in Udhampur town comprising thousands of people from all walks of life to invite the attention of the govt towards the pathetic plight of the poor un-influential people of District Udhampur, Harsh Dev Singh Chairman-JKNPP and Former Minister accused the district administration Udhampur of biased approach and acting on the directions of BJP activists.
The mammoth rally which was led by JKNPP Chairman started from Salathia Chowk, Udhampur and after passing through various bazaars of the city culminated at PWD office complex.
The processions carrying placards in their hands raised slogans of “Bijli, Paani, Ration, School staff ki samasya ko hal karo, hal karo”, “BJP ke isharon par nachne wale officers ko barkhast karo, barkhast karo”, “Garib, Kissan and Dalit Samaj ke saath bhed-bhav bandh karo, bandh karo”.
Charging the Udhampur administration for playing in the hands of BJP, Singh said that common masses continued to be denied access to those running the administrative set up in the District. The people were suffering due to the acute water and power crisis with no takers for their shrill cries and repeated prayers made to the field staff. In several villages, the people were collecting rain-water in their earthen pots for drinking water with a highly apathetic system averse to their woes and sufferings.
Not only that people in several villages had to tread for several kms on foot to avail of the ration supply with the assurances of govt functionaries of opening ration outlets proving a hoax for the last 3-4 years. Similar was the plight of schools of rural areas wherefrom the teachers had been withdrawn and attached in cities and towns.
Most disparaging aspect of the administration conduct was the disregard being shown towards the opposition leaders, the poor, the marginalized and the dalits. The people were being bullied, intimidated, harassed and persecuted for highlighting the prevalent corruption in various deptts and even for exercising their fundamental rights assured to them under the constitution.
People were openly threatened for opposing the policies of BJP govt. Several JKNPP workers and others had been booked by Police while protesting to seek regular water and power supply and proper road connectivity. FIRs were even being lodged against poor people who were constructing pathways and tractor roads at their own expense.
No work was being allowed to be executed without BJP workers inaugurating the same even if the public had collected funds on their own for the same.
The coercive apparatus of Police was being used to the fullest to browbeat and silence those who dared raise their voice against BJP’s ‘goondagardi’ in the District. The poor people especially the dalits were the worst sufferers with several cases of murders and heinous offences against them having gone unheard and unnoticed with a highly biased Police acting on the directions of their political bosses and granting immunity to the offenders.
Harsh Dev Singh said that people’s repeated requests and representations having fallen on deaf ears, the JKNPP was forced to take to streets to seek the restoration of constitutional guarantees in favour of the poor, un-influential and dalits as assured by the Indian constitution.
