Jammu, May 27: Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC)on Sunday slammed PDP-BJP coalition government asserting that they both failed to cement bonds of unity and peace and created political uncertainty in the state.
“Two diametrically opposite forces have betrayed their electorate when they entered into power sharing arrangement devoid of any ideological meeting point because of their contradictory and divergent approach to each and every sensitive issue and aspect of the state,” JKPCC chief G A Mir said while addressing the workers convention here organised in connection with the 54th death anniversary of first prime minister of the country Pt Jawahar Lal Nehru.
He said that the government is responsible for creating social disharmony and political uncertainty in the state rather than cementing the bonds of unity and peace.
He cautioned the people about the designs of communal, divisive forces and vested political interests who are trying to create wedge in the society in order to achieve their political goal at the cost of broader interests of keeping the secular fabric and social harmony intact. Otherwise, the troubled state would further land into deeper turmoil and challenges.
“The result of it (doing politics on sensitive issues) is the situation in the state continues to deteriorate, which is a matter of great concern,” he added.
“Congress is the only secular and unifying force in the state, which has always strengthened the secularism and it will continue to safeguard the secular fabric of the country and the state,” Mir said.
Former Minister and senior Congress leader Raman Bhalla said that the treachery and deceit of the BJP is haunting Jammu people who reposed their unflinching faith and supported it with the hope that Jammu may perhaps get a better deal as during the days of its wilderness in the opposition, the BJP leaders were crying hoarse over discrimination and neglect.
He made a particular mention of the BJP and dared its ministers to list their achievements with regard to fulfilling the developmental needs of the Jammu region.
“Despite being in power at the Centre and in the State the party failed miserably on governance front and let down Jammu on all fronts”, he said, adding that the BJP has nothing to showcase as its achievement, least to fulfilling liberal promises during elections.
He slammed the BJP for putting Jammu’s interests and development subservient to the pleasure of PDP for remaining glued to power. The former Minister said the partnership of the alliance parties and cohesion as a result of which people of the state in general and the Jammu region in particular are suffering on account of development.
