Govt concealing the names of blue- eyed encroachers, BJP leaders: Harsh

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Jan 25: "While the J&K govt claims to have identified the cases of land encroachments by influential persons and land mafia and publicized the names of some of the opposition leaders in the media, it seems to have granted immunity to its blue-eyed encroachers and leaders associated or affiliated with saffron party." This was stated by Harsh Dev Singh, former Minister and Chairman AAP J&K SCC, while the names of some NC, PDP and other opposition leaders are being mentioned in the lists of encroachers as being circulated in the media, the govt functionaries seem to be under pressure to cover up the land scams of the saffron leaders, maintained Harsh. The lists of encroachers being provided to the media are not being seen as credible in view of the selective revelations of land encroachers. The lists infact reveal less and conceal more, said Singh. He was addressing a press conference today.
Pointing towards the illegal encroachments of several Ex-Ministers/MLAs, Singh said that majority of them originally belonged to BJP. And other encroacher Ex-Ministers and MLAs who belonged to opposition parties had crossed floors and joined BJP to escape the wrath of investigating agencies and had therefore become 'clean' after merging their identity in the saffron stream. Both the aforesaid categories of land encroachers had therefore become immune from legal action. Not only that the majority of BJP leaders were illegally occupying govt Bungalows and other Estates mansions with the present bureaucratic rule conniving with them in illegal retention of the said public premises. Not only that all comforts and luxuries including free furniture, fixtures, TVs, ACs, refrigerators were being provided to the said usurpers of govt property by the Estates deptt at tax-payers expense, revealed Singh. And still the vigilante organizations and other agencies had failed to act in view of the political clout enjoyed by the delinquent politicians.
Strongly condemning the selective action of the govt against the inconvenient politicians and other poor people, Singh called for strict penal action against all politicians/land mafia while ensuring that the poor, landless and other indigent farmers were not harassed or dispossessed of their marginal land holdings.
