BJP trait has always been to deceive people through propaganda: Monga

Jammu, Mar 26: While terming the reports that only 18 percent funds of the approved amount from much hyped Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Rs 82,452 crore package for the state have been released in almost three years, J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) Vice President and MLC G N Monga today said that BJP trait has always been to deceive people through propaganda.
In a statement issued to press here he questioned both the Central and the State Governments about these reports appearing in Greater Kashmir newspaper. “Out of five years, for almost three years meager 18 percent of the funds of have been released. It is not for the first time that BJP has done this with J&K, but their policies are anti-J&K.”
“When UPA was in power, whatever then Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Madam Sonia Gandhi promised, it was delivered. BJP-led NDA government was presenting the achievements of previous UPA regime in a new packaging and claiming these as their own,” Monga said. “Work on Jammu and Kashmir rail network and power project in the state was done under previous UPA regime. Similarly, most of the road projects in the state were started by the previous UPA government and funds for the same were also allotted then.”
“In 2015, Modi tried to package the good work done by the previous UPA regimes and presented it in the form of Rs 82 thousand crore package. Where is the package now as figures state that it was a lie,” he said.
The Congress leader added that the initiatives taken in Kashmir during the United Progressive Alliance’s 10-year rule have been reversed and washed away due to which the situation in the state has turned serious.
He also questioned the Peoples Democratic Party over the PM package fiasco. “PDP owes an explanation over the issue as it is running the alliance government with the BJP in the state. The PDP leadership was making tall claims and presenting it as something big before the people. Why are they silent now,” Monga questioned.
