BJP pursuing divisive politics in Jammu: NC

  • 1

R.S. PURA: The National Conference on Saturday charged BJP with pursuing “divisive politics” in the Jammu region.
According to the statement, this was stated by NC’s women wing state vice president, Bimla Luthra here while addressing workers.
Luthra said the people of Jammu had given their mandate for development and welfare, but instead of being governed “they were pushed to the wall during BJP-PDP coalition government”.
“Developmental activities witnessed total collapse during their rule in JK and the utility services suffered a major jolt,” she alleged, adding the services like power, drinking water, roads, and health etcetera were most hit.
The former MLA Gagan Bhagat on the occasion said, “The BJP’s mis-governance is a bad chapter of Jammu and Kashmir history.”
He said the dream of “Ache Din got transformed into a nightmare, as the BJP reneged on every single statement and promise they made to the people”.
“Grievances of the people were overlooked. Instead of attending to peoples’ needs, the BJP indulged in whipping up passions by raking up emotive slogans in a bid to hide its failures,” he alleged.
Bhagat further said that “due to policy paralysis of the ruling dispensation, the people found themselves in lurch with development coming to grinding halt and administration suffering chronic inertia due to lack of direction and political will”.
