JAMMU: Former Minister and senior Congress leader, Raman Bhalla on Saturday accused BJP Govt of having failed to address the problems of the people of J&K and said that the miseries of the people have increased manifolds after they cheated people of Jammu.
He said that all the promises made to the people prior to the Parliament elections remained unfulfilled.
:Considerable time has passed but they have failed to fulfill any of the promises, be it the problems faced by the border residents, be it the problems faced by the farmers, be it the problems of refugees and Kashmiri Pandits, this government has done nothing to address those problems,” Bhalla said.
While attacking the NDA government at the centre, Bhalla said that since the change of guard happened in New Delhi, the prices of essential commodities have increased manifold.
“The prices of pulses have increased and it has become difficult for not only the poor but also the middle class to afford pulses. The ever increasing inflation is taking a toll on the common masses of this country,” he said.
“BJP leaders did not even provide basic facilities to people like roads, electricity or employment. If we can see, they are identified by two things – hypocrisy and double standard,” Bhalla further said.
Bad governance has only deteriorated the whole situation in Jammu and Kashmir. BJP claims massive funds flow into J&K from New Delhi. Where do they go? We still struggle to have a proper infrastructure where basic needs like good roads, electricity, healthcare, education and many other things remain a distant dream, said Bhalla.
“Governance at the lowest depth and development taken nose dive in past over six years,” Bhalla said.
