J&K bleeding ever since its division into two UTs: Harsh Dev

Early Times Report

Chenani, Nov 21: Aam Aadmi Party held a massive rally in Chenani under the leadership of Mr. Harsh Dev Singh Former Minister and Chairman AAP J&K State Co-ordination Committee which was attended by thousands of people from various villages of the constituency. The rally comprising of hundreds of two wheelers, cars, matadors passed through Samroli, Narsoo, Champeri with a huge fan-fare and reached Chenani where it was received with great enthusiasm by the local unit of the Party. The massive show caught the imagination of the general masses and it looked like to festival in Chenani Town.
Addressing the mammoth gathering, Mr. Harsh Dev said that massive public response to the rally was indicative of the imminent change in District Udhampur wherein people seemed determined to usher a new era of peace, progress and prosperity by supporting the AAP which appeared to them to be the only ray of hope.
Disputing the claims of development, normalcy and corruption free system in J&K being repeatedly made by the central and state BJP leaders post J&K’s re-organization, Mr. Singh accused the present regime of indulging in self praise and self adulation by ignoring the ground realities. A govt which promised a visible change in J&K after Art 370 abrogation has failed to curb even the gradual deterioration in the law and order situation and provision of general services with a highly ascendant bureaucracy averse to the woes and sufferings of common masses. With its delivery being in inverse proposition to the articulation of its promises, the people were fast losing faith in the BJP regime and pinning their hopes on the Aam Aadmi Party. He said that there were tensions in various parts of the erstwhile State after its reorganization into UTs in view of the centre’s failure to allay the apprehensions of the people of various regions. He argued that the BJP govt had failed to address the concerns of various aspirational groups which has sparked outrage in various regions as was being manifested in the shape of ever increasing protests and public demonstrations being organized on day to day basis.
“Downgrading of the oldest historical State of J&K to UTs has been the most obnoxious dent upon the pride of its people. A feeling of deprivation and demotion has deeply hurt the people and inflicted a big dent upon their self esteem and honour. The tall slogans of the employment package for J&K have all evaporated into their air. Instead of providing gainful employment to educated unemployed youth, the recent past witnessed large scale retrenchments in public and private sectors. The Education, Power, PHE and Health sectors in particular are in a mess with acute deficiency of manpower having adversely impacted the functioning of these significant deptts. And while the people continue to suffer the govt is busy patting its own back”, lamented Mr. Singh.
“The fact of the matter is that J&K continues to bleed. The merciless killings of civilians in the valley has exposed all tall claims of the govt of curbing militancy in J&K. Even in otherwise peaceful Jammu, there were incidents of bomb blasts and militant’s activity in Udhampur and Katra as noticed in the recent past. Development has come to a grinding halt with corruption having become all pervasive. Several daily rated workers have been terminated. Several casual and need based workers are apprehensive about their future. While J&K was bleeding after its division into two UTs, the BJP govt at the centre seemed to be least concerned about the plight of the suffering people of erstwhile state. There is an all-round feeling of disenchantment and AAP is the only alternative to overcome the prevalent crisis, asserted Singh.
Prominent among those who spoke on the occasion included Yash Paul Kundal Ex-Minister, DDC Ashri Devi, Dharam Singh, Ravi Shastri, Nazia Farooqi, Sudesh Kumar, Rampaul Bhagat, Akhter Hussain, Sukhdev Singh, Mohd Farooq, Monika Sharma and Mrs. Manju Singh besides others.
