BJP govt testing patience of J&K people: Harsh Dev
1/19/2023 9:34:42 PM
Early Times Report
CHENANI, Jan 19: Alleging breakdown of politico-constitutional apparatus of the erstwhile J&K State post its Re-organization and division into two UTs, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) sought the restoration of statehood and holding of Assembly Elections at the earliest in the troubled territory.
Addressing public meetings at Thani Dhar and Chunti in Chenani constituency, Harsh Dev Singh, Former Minister and Chairman Aam Aadmi Party J&K State Co-ordination Committee said that with the erstwhile historical State of J&K having been dismantled and downgraded to UT level by divesting it of its statehood status, and further failing to curb terror and resultant mayhem and bloodshed, depriving it of even the routine development initiatives, divesting the people of their marginal land holdings, opening the lands and Jobs of its locals to outsiders, suppressing all critical voices through the coercive apparatus of the govt, demolishing institutions, denying legitimate elected govt and running the affairs of state for the last over four years through proxy, the BJP regime appeared to be testing the patience of the people of the erstwhile princely state. New laws were being enacted for J&K on a regular basis by 'babus' in the centre and implemented in J&K without any Legislative nod through the aegis of Home Ministry by taking recourse to J&K Re-organization Act. The people were subjected to the most unpopular rule of outside bureaucrats who lacked even the basic knowledge of the problems of the common masses and had hardly any connect with the people. And the BJP which had been voted to power in the centre continued to use J&K as a workshop holding newer experiments each day deliriously unmindful of the abyss to which it had thrown the people of the new UT, asserted Singh.
"With justice remaining elusive and the govt being run on the whims and fancies of helmsmen, it was not the rule of law that prevailed in J&K but the law of the Ruler. And in the process, the common man of J&K was being crushed and tormented under the feet by a highly impudent and authoritarian BJP govt", said Singh. He said that under the prevailing circumstances, it was AAP alone which was emerging as a ray of hope for J&K people.
"With no takers for the woes and sufferings of the people, the govt was thriving on fake announcements and fictional accounts of its achievements with nothing tangible to be seen on the ground. People suffered the worst nightmares due to the power and water crisis. The govt failed to act. The people of remote areas continue to suffer ration problems with no takers for their repeated requests and reminders. Several houses and other residential units of poor indigent masses have been dismantled and their marginal land holdings retrieved by the govt on the pretext of encroachments. The daily rated workers of PHE, PWD, Power, I&FC are without wages for several months with none to pay attention to their pathetic plight. The unemployed educated youth were on the roads. The MGNREGA liability has exceeded one thousands crore during the last 5-6 years but none in the govt is there to even console the poor labourers. The academic activity in remote village schools has been paralysed due to acute deficiency of teaching staff. The corruption has become all pervasive with none to question those indulging in open loot and plunder of the states' resources. And those who have the temerity to question are dubbed as anti-nationals. But despite all this the govt was indulging in incessant chest thumping and claiming to have brought about revolutionary changes. And dissent was being muzzled through the coercive apparatus of the state. The fact of the matter was that the general masses were feeling suffocated and suppressed under the dictatorial policies of the current regime ruling the roost by evading democratic process", maintained the AAP leader.
