JAMMU: Lambasting the BJP led government at the Centre over continuous attacks along the borders, Raju Goyal, Vice President District Congress Committee (DCC) Jammu Urban said that the situation at the country’s borders is alarming as scores of soldiers and civilians have lost their lives.
Stating that the national security is in danger and the internal security too is under threat, Goyal criticised the Modi government for boasting about their six years in office against such backdrop. He alleged that the government has abdicated its duties in protecting the country’s borders and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has instead resorted to self-propagation of his strategies. He accused the central government of having “utterly failed” on the national security front and said instead of taking strategic steps to protect India’s interests, it was relying upon rhetoric.
Goyal expressed grave concern over the deteriorating security scenario in Kashmir region. The security scenario in the Valley is a matter of serious concern and underlines the political vacuum that has resulted in accentuating the alienation on the ground, especially among the youth, he added.
“It is the onerous responsibility of the J&K Government to reach out to the youth and bring the Valley back to the path of stability and peace. However, unfortunately, the Government continues to function in a manner which is adding to the alienation on the ground – be it their utter and complete governance failures or their numerous political compromises and U-turns”, Goyal added. Goyal asserted that unemployment and inflation in Jammu and Kashmir are all time high as the financial health of the people was not good while the present pandemic has snatched away the source of livelihood from billions.
