Jammu: The BJP today warned the government officials who are allegedly colluding with the opposition parties and working to tarnish the image of the PDP-BJP coalition in Jammu and Kashmir.
“No leniency will be tolerated towards the government officials who are in league with opposition parties and working with an objective to tarnish the image of the PDP-BJP alliance government,” BJP MP from Poonch Jugal Kishore Sharma said during a party meeting here.
Sharma said the party was aware of the issues faced by the people of the Jammu region, which include supply of ration, water and electricity and every effort was being made to ensure that people do not suffer in scorching summers.
“As the temperature goes up in summer months, the requirement of water and electricity increases and the BJP ministers have directed the senior officials of Public Health and Engineering (PHE) and Power Development Department (PDD) to remain vigilant round the clock to provide respite to the people,” Sharma said.
Party Rajya Sabha Member Shamsher Singh Manhas rejected allegation by opposition that the party ministers were enjoying the weather of Kashmir while Jammu was reeling under heat.
“Allegations by opposition that BJP ministers are enjoying in Srinagar are false because the ministers are attending the assembly session and are not there on picnic,” Manhas said.
He said parties like NC, Congress and JKNPP have been misleading and provoking the people as they are unable to digest the smooth functioning of the coalition, which is providing corruption-free administration.
“The people cannot be misled by these parties, as they have tested them for decades together. The reality is that majority of the leaders of opposition have fled Jammu but entire leadership of State BJP is in winter capital,” Manhas said.
