Modi Govt looting people through taxes: JKPCC chief



KALAKOTE: The Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC), on Monday continued protest against the unprecedented hike in prices of petrol, diesel and other essential commodities at Kalakote.

JKPCC Chief claimed that BJP government failed to meet development aspirations of people of J&K. Far-flung and hilly areas lacks proper infrastructure, road connectivity, drinking water and electricity supply,” he said.
He demanded early assembly elections and restoration of statehood to Jammu and Kashmir.
Mir pledged that his party was committed to the welfare of the common people and would strictly follow the public outreach programme in order to listen and redress their grievances.
He said there is growing resentment among right-wing activists as well. However, he said that they do not show resentment due to political compulsions.
Mir criticised BJP dispensation in causing unrest among the educated unemployed youth, farmers, small businessmen and workers and Government failure in providing necessities of life to the people.
He pleaded that the good governance is of imperative necessity to serve the people in democratic setup which J&K Government is missing. The BJP has hurt the emotions of common people, mainstream politicians. It will have serious implications, which unfortunately, the BJP government doesn’t understand.
Bhalla said Govt is only killing and buying time with futile programmes and accused BJP for weakening grass roots democracy after its failure to fulfill the promises made to the general masses.
JKPCC Chief Spokesman Ravinder Sharma said that so far BJP has only befooled people with false promises. Being the ruling party at the Centre and having secured heavy mandate in the elections from Jammu region, he blamed BJP for its total failure to address the genuine problems and concerns of the people.
