Hand over power in J&K to sons of soil: Harsh Dev Singh

Early Times Report

VIJAYPUR, Oct 22: Harsh Dev Singh Chairman-JKNPP regretted that the erstwhile state had faced worst ever crisis during the last few years. He said that BJP government’s claims of ushering a ‘new era of dawn’ post Article 370 abrogation had proved a farce.
“The development inertia, the crashing economy, back breaking inflation, soaring unemployment, resentment among farmers and border dwellers, bourgeoning culture of corruption and fast escalating militancy etc have made the situation from bad to worse in J&K”, said Singh. He was addressing huge public rally in Swanka Morh in Vijaypur constituency today.
Alleging subversion of democracy and denial of popular government in J&K post Article 370 abrogation, Singh said that BJP led government appeared to be averse to the idea of holding assembly elections in the new set up. He said that while no initiative had been taken to restore popular rule in J&K, the government in the UT seemed to have been outsourced to bureaucrats from outside the state, both retired and in-service.
“The recent recall of one of the advisors and the reports of his replacement by another advisor amply revealed the intentions of the centre which seemed hell bent to continue its proxy rule in J&K through these bureaucrats. It was regrettable that rather than retrieving the fast deteriorating situation, the BJP government was indulging in causing dissensions in other parties and breaking the opposition in furtherance of its vested political interests,” said Singh.
Singh questioned the rationale behind repeated postponement of assembly elections in J&K. Strongly condemning the escalation in militancy related activities, he called upon the centre to initiate political process in J&K and ensure restoration of popular rule in the erstwhile state at the earliest. Rather than suppressing the main-stream political parties, these should be encouraged and taken into confidence for restoration of normalcy in the UT.
Yash Paul Kundal said that the Election Commission had earlier taken a call for simultaneous polls of assembly and parliament which however did not materialize.
It later issued a statement stating therein that the EC “after the conduct of Amarnath Yatra will announce the election schedule for the conduct of Assembly Elections in J&K”, revealed Kundal adding that it too turned out to be a damp squib.
