Srinagar: Lashing out at Centre government for failing to address the grievances of people and causing restlessness among the people in J&K, All India Congress Committee (AICC) in-charge for Jammu and Kashmir Rajni Patil on Saturday said developmental process in the Jammu and Kashmir has received a major setback.
Patil was reviewing the current situation, besides organizational affairs and activities in Pulwama and Srinagar Districts during her five day’s tour in J&K, according to a statement issued here.
JKPCC President G.A. Mir and other senior leaders held interaction with party workers and also reviewed the party activities in both the districts.
Rajni Patil interacted with party cadres in Pulwama District, then visited Srinagar Party Office and urged workers to gear up for the challenges ahead, besides putting a united fight against the anti-people and wrong policies of the government, “which is responsible for the economic losses, restlessness among the people in J&K.”
She said the developmental scenario in J&K got set back, unemployment has risen considerably; people have suffered huge economic losses.
“Unfortunately the rising trend of people’s grievances have even failed to invite the attention of the government which is a big source of disappointment and anguish among the people, who have realized that their voices are not being heard by the BJP government rather they are being suppressed aiming to cover up the wrong doings on the part of BJP Govt,” she said, adding, “Mere making tall claims and promising sky won’t change the reality, the fact of the matter is that BJP government has utterly failed to address people’s problems, It is an established fact, that government has not come up with any programme or policy with regard to development, curbing unemployment and resolution of other issues concerning people in J&K”.
On this occasion AICC in-charge send a clear signal to party workers and leaders across J&K to get united to strengthen the party further at grass root level, as that, the Congress Party is committed to safeguard the rights of the people, won’t compromises on its stated position of working and serving people to the best of its ability, which is the party’s legacy.
Speaking on the occasion, JKPCC President laid emphasis over highlighting the issues concerning people especially economic crisis and other important issues like rising unemployment and huge losses caused to JK’s economy after revoking special status of J&K, as that, people have witnessed only restrictions, communication gag, besides the Covid 19 made the situation more complex for the people, irony is that Centre government is ignoring every genuine issue in order to hide its failures on all fronts.
Mir also hit out at the Centre for unprecedented price hike on petroleum products and essentials and expressed surprise over the attitude of the BJP government.
“On the one hand BJP govt is adamant over not to reverse the price hike and on the other hand it is appealing people to vote for it, now It is the sole responsibility of the voters to respond to BJP’s terror tax and price hike on everything especially petrol, diesel and essentials,” Mir said.
