RAMNAGAR: Accusing the BJP of betraying the sentiment of people of Jammu over a host of issues, Harsh Dev Singh, JKNPP Chairman & former Minister on Thursday said that by declining holiday on birthday of Maharaja Hari Singh, it had caused the greatest disillusionment to its own electorates.He said that despite repeated assurances and re-assurances of reviewing and revising the holidays Calendar and including 23rd September in the list of gazette holidays, it failed to keep its word thereby causing huge disappointment to the very people who gave it 25 seats in Assembly besides both seats of Parliament. He was addressing a huge gathering of people on the final leg of the campaign at Dalsar today in support of the Party candidate Rampaul Bhagat from DDC constituency Ramnagar-II. Later, alongwith Ex-MLA Dina Nath Bhagat he addressed a mammoth public rally at Dehari for DDC candidate Vinod Kumar from Ramnagar-I constituency.“BJP has persistently belied the aspirations of Jammu people ever since its ascendance to power. Its cowardly surrenders before PDP are still a fresh in the minds of people. It was the BJP-PDP govt. which had refused to revive the practice of issuance of Dogra Certificate to Youth of Jammu. Again it was the BJP which followed the Kashmiri leaders dictations over Rassana issue and refused to hand over the case to CBI thereby causing huge public outrage in its own core constituency. Yet again, it’s the BJP govt. which has refused to listen to the shrill cries of the nationalist people of Jammu region seeking restoration of 4G mobile internet services. Not only that the BJP made haughty claims of extension of Article 371 to J&K so as to save the lands and jobs of locals which too turned out to be a treacherous move to cheat people. And latest of its betrayals include opening of multiple Toll Plazas in and around the city of temples besides the denial of holiday on 23rd September, the birthday of legendary Dogra Ruler who is considered a symbol of Dogra pride and honour” asserted Singh.Maintaining that BJP had dishonoured the massive mandate given to it by Jammu region, Singh said that its power intoxicated leadership invariably caused a huge dent upon Dogra pride and honour.“Our development had been relegated to the back ground with entire focus on Kashmir even after Reorganization of the State. Jammu youth appointed under SRO-24 in Health Department were all terminated while allowing their Kashmir counterparts to continue. The orchardists of Kashmir were compensated though a special package for the alleged loss of apples, walnuts and saffron while ignoring the Jammu farmers for the loss of their successive crops”, rued Singh.
