Jammu, May 11: Expressing concern over water and power crisis across J&K, former minister and senior National Conference (NC) leader Ajay Kumar Sadhotra Wednesday lambasted the administration for pushing the people to wall during the current spell of the brute heat- wave across the Jammu region, especially Jammu
“The situation has become all the more critical with mercury breaching 40 degree Celsius,” Sadhotra said while addressing a public meeting at Lale-da-BaghNaiBasti.
According to a party statement, Sadhotra said that the “failed” BJP Government is mulling a big hike in the power tariff to silence the people from rising against the unprecedented crisis that has jeopardised normal life. Any raise in the power hike is not only unacceptable to the people but would be overwhelmingly opposed, he added.
The former minister said the power crisis has brought life to standstill with every segment like industry, trade and commerce, households, students, etc braving the brunt.
The statement further said that scores of BJP workers joined the National Conference (NC) including men and women. Welcoming the new entrants Sadhotra hoped that their coming to party will further strengthen the hands of the NC president Dr. Farooq Abdullah and vice-president Omar Abdullah.
