Patil criticized the “mis-governance of the BJP government due to which the common masses are feeling cheated. She blamed the government for failing to tackle prices and making life difficult for the common man.” There is no doubt that there has been a significant increase in poverty and hunger, she said. She said there is the rule of untruth and injustice in the country. Whoever raises his or her voice has to bear the brunt of the government’s anger, she added. She observed that governments are elected to ease the burden of people and at the very least, not work directly contrary to their interests. She further said that public grievances are mounting every day but the BJP Government has remained unmoved. He said that public issues and grievances are piling up with the passage of every day but the Administration has failed to solve the basic issues.
The JKPCC President slammed BJP for dividing and downgrading the J&K into UT to serve its political agenda. He said Congress Party is capable enough to fight against the BJPs vendetta politics, it will continue to highlight the price hike, rising unemployment, lack of development, misuse of agencies against the opponents at every appropriate forum to make BJP accountable and answerable to people. He lashed out at the Central government for the unprecedented price hike and record unemployment besides failing to address the grievances of people of J&K on every count after promising massive development post-August 5, 2019.
Mir claimed that so far BJP rule has been of "mismanagement, immense despair and agony" and the country today stands at a stage where the common people are suffering from the wounds inflicted by the government whereas Congress has been continuing its efforts to listen to grievances of aggrieved people in various areas of J&K. He said politics of disorientation and false propaganda have become the hallmark of the functioning of the Modi government.
JKPCC Working President said that the development process started by UPA Govt in J&K, received a major setback, as the NDA Govt failed to carry forward the massive developments started by UPA.” He said that people are feeling harassed by ‘tax-terror’ and unprecedented price hike by the Modi government. At the same time, they realize that BJP Govt is looting them to recover the losses it has BJP to the Country’s economy by misrule and mismanagement of things since day one, as a result, there is restlessness across the country. Hitting hard the BJP and its state leadership for cheating the people of Jammu, he said that the BJP has lost the moral right to go to Jammu people after betrayal after betrayal. Stating that BJP has “cheated” people of Jammu, he accused the Union government of reducing the status of people of the region to "fourth-class citizens" even when they voted the party to power in Assembly and Parliamentary polls.
