BJP govt running on basis of hoardings and advertisements: Bhalla


JAMMU, Jan 10: Former Minister and senior Congress leader Raman Bhalla on Sunday claimed that BJP government which has completed more than six years in power is among the poorest performing governments in the history of J&K. He said government was all about destroying the dreams and cheating people of J&K. He said that in the last six years development has been zero and encouragement has been given to uncall for controversial decisions. He said that BJP government is running on the basis of hoardings and advertisements. This was observed by former Minister after visiting Bahu Fort area in Gandhi Nagar Constituency. Prominent among those present on the occasion include Block President Jatinder Singh Chib, Diwan Chand, Latish Sharma, Mulakh Raj, Rickey Dantotra Gagan Bral, Ruffi Kumar, Rahul Kumar, Balwinder beside others. Bhalla aid that BJP had boasted of providing world-class facilities to millions of tourists visiting the state and assertions of making Jammu an independent destination had remained just rhetoric.
BJP had zealously announced a revamp of basic facilities at tourist destinations, which were the backbone of the state's economy, there was need for massive state-sector investment to improve infrastructure to attract private players. Six major projects had not been completed depriving Jammu of lakhs of visitors to Vaishno Devi shrine and other pilgrim centres in the state. These are the Mubarak Mandi-Bahu Fort ropeway, beautification of the historic Mubarak Mandi Palace, the Buddhist heritage site in Akhnoor, ancient temple complex at Purmandal, Gharana wetland development and Gandola project at Peerkho Mohmaya. BJP Govt failed to initiate makeover of entry gate near Police Post Bahu, remodelling of triangular road.
Bhalla said that the government deserves zero marks out of hundred. He said that the money being used to organise the lavish function had it been spent on welfare of the poor and needy then many of their problems would have been solved but instead it was trying to hide its failures by putting up big hoardings and advertisements. Former Minister said that BJP government is deliberately delaying the holding of early assembly elections and restoration of full statehood to J&K as people have send strong signal to the centre government in the DDC elections. He said that BJP is avoiding holding of early assembly elections to give an elected government to people and restore the statehood, disbanded and downgraded to UT against the wishes of the people. BJP has destroyed the identity, status and rights of the people. People have given a strong signal to the centre that people are annoyed with the BJP's actions and failure of their leaders who were elected by the people with great expectations. He said that only Congress can fight the arbitrary style of functioning of the BJP government.
Bhalla said that BJP has ruined the future of youth, farmers and common people by its wrong policies and programmes in J&K. Despite high footfall at Manda Zoo, the only zoo of Jammu and Kashmir, is facing the government apathy, as no maintenance work has been done for a long time. Proper cleaning and maintenance of the zoo is not being done properly, which discourages the visitors from coming to this place again.
