SRINAGAR: The BJP’s central leadership has deputed party general secretary Ram Madhav and senior party functionary Ram Lal to review the performance of its ministers, particularly the five ministers against whom the apex trade body of Jammu complained to Home Minister Rajnath Singh when he visited Jammu last week.
“Ram ji and Madhav ji will review the work the ministers have done in the three years (of the BJP-BDP coalition government). It is likely that heads will now roll,” a senior party official of the BJP’s state unit told Kashmir Reader.
The Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Jammu called for a shutdown in Jammu after BJP state president Sat Sharma said that “a few complaints to the minister (Rajnath Singh) do not matter”. The chamber’s president, Rakesh Gupta, told Kashmir Reader that he had met the home minister and told him that the BJP’s top leadership should make the party’s ministers accountable for their work. Gupta said that as soon as Singh landed back in New Delhi, he sent Madhav and Lal to look into the complaints made against the ministers.
The senior state BJP functionary told Kashmir Reader that Ram Madhav and Ram Lal have been sent to from Delhi to review the performance of the ministers. He said, “Five ministers have been in question for a long time. Health minister Bali Baghat, Industries and Commerce minister Chander Prakash Ganga, Forest, Ecology & Environment minister Lal Singh, PHE, Irrigation and Flood Control minister Sham Lal, and Minister of State (MoS) Sunil Kumar Sharma are the ones whose performance has been questioned. In various departmental meetings that are headed by the above ministers, loopholes were pointed out, following which the ministers had to apologise. Such things have occurred many times.”
