Jammu, Aug 06: The JKPCC working-president Raman Bhalla Saturday launched a scathing attack on the BJP government, alleging that every section of the society is fed up with this "anti-people" dispensation.
He urged the people of J&K to get rid of the "anti-people" BJP government in J&K in the next Assembly polls.
According to a statement issued by the party, while interacting with prominent persons of Bhour Pind area of Gandhi Nagar constituency, the former Minister said that BJP has dismayed and disappointed people of J&K besides exposing their hollow and false commitment to their slogans always used by them to hoodwink the people.
He called on Congress workers to take the message of party president Sonia Gandhi to every village and town in J&K, and told them to prepare for Pad Yatra, "which would be a movement for bringing back the lost glory of the state."
Bhalla appealed to the government to acknowledge the problem of rising inflation affecting the poor in India in order to fix it.
He said there has been a constant increase in prices of essential commodities in the last eight years of the Modi government. Despite record food grains, it is tragic testimony that farmers are fighting to get better prices and consumers are weighed down by high prices, he said, adding that the government should have distributed the surplus stock to the poor through the public distribution system (PDS). Imposition of GST on pre-packed food items has further put burden on the poor.
The wrong policies of the Modi Government have stifled foreign investment in the country and the companies that had invested in India have also gone bankrupt.
Demonetization and faulty implementation of GST destroyed small, medium and small traders. The Modi Government in the last eight years has only used the central machinery to silence the leaders of the opposition. Religious issues like temples and mosques were raked up to sidestep the more real and urgent issues. Attempts were made to create a rift in the society and cause communal divide just like the divide and rule policy of the British,” claimed Bhalla.
