Biggest threat to Jammu from opportunist leaders: Harsh Dev
12/7/2022 11:24:46 PM
Early Times Report
CHENANI, Dec 7: "While Jammu region continues to lose and to suffer despite the incessant chest thumping of the saffron regime, the people of Dogra land need to give a serious thought for finding a viable alternative to the deceptive politics of power hungry politicians. It is sad that the opposition leaders of Jammu region are abandoning their respective parties one by one and falling in the lap of either BJP or Kashmir centric parties. And these were the very leaders who would swear by the cause of Jammu accusing the BJP of having betrayed the sentiment of the Dogras for vested interests and fulfilment of their political ambitions. And while they all along depicted the BJP and PDP as anti-Jammu parties and their leaders as power hungry politicians, they opted to embrace them at the first available opportunity and to acknowledge them as their leaders. While some of these prodigal sons of Jammu were opting for BJP, the others had chosen JKAP as their mentor and saviour". This was stated by Harsh Dev Singh, Former Minister and senior AAP leader who was addressing public meetings in Satyalta and Malal in Chenani constituency today.
Urging upon the people to beware of opportunist politicians, Singh said that Jammu region has often been cheated by its own leaders. "In 2014, the Dogra land gave massive mandate to the saffron party and ensured victory of its 25 Assembly candidates with both MP seats also falling in its kitty. But what did it do? It conceded the CM's chair for full term accepting the leadership of PDP whom they had vowed to decimate during the said elections. Those who were projected as monsters by BJP were embraced by it as partners. And subsequently also after the collapse of PDP-BJP coalition, it made a desperate though unsuccessful attempt to hand over the reins of power to Sajad Lone of PC which had only two MLAs from Kashmir. And now again, it's the saffron party which is reportedly providing tacit as well as overt support to the new Kashmir based parties to emerge. The JKAP and PC are granted audience by top leadership of the country without any hassles and have easy access to the corridors of power in New Delhi. The said parties have also been allotted Estates Bungalows at Gandhi Nagar for their political office only adjacent to the residential 'A type' accommodation presently held by the State BJP President. And of course, all this with a design. A new alliance in the offing. A new experiment to capture power. The media is being fully exploited to create hype in favour of the new outfits and the new entrants in the BJP. The defections as such are being glorified and glamorized. And then all efforts made to justify such defections, floor crossings and change of loyalties. Such opportunism of the political leadership has been responsible for incarceration of Jammu and caused immense damage to the cause of this deprived region. It is high time therefore that Jammu recognizes the true face of these political opportunists behind their deceptive facades and supports those who have stood firm in the face of gravest of provocations and inspite of all odds, pulls and pressures", asserted Singh.
