DRABSHALLA: Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC), Vice President and MLA Inderwal, Ghulam Mohammad Saroori today said that Congress will expose BJP and play a constructive role projecting burning issues of the public. Addressing senior functionaries and workers here at Drabshalla area of Inderwal constituency, Saroori said people had high hopes from BJP after 2014 and had given opportunity to serve but now they are realizing their mistake. They have been suffering badly due to misrule of Modi Government.
Saroori said that BJP government came to the power with a wave but now people are repenting and realizes their mistake for voting them into power. Counting a long list of issue such as GST, Demonetization, ration quota, petrol prices, gas cylinder etc he said that, Congress is playing a constructive role to highlight various issues of public. Launching frontal attack on BJP for promoting communal and regional divide, Saroori said Governments are always run on the principles and not religions. They may be from any community but they have to ensure development including providing drinking water, electricity to people, open schools and hospitals etc. BJP must shun its old habit of exploiting people on communal lines,” Saroori said.
Saroori said the party was gaining strength in the State and appealed the party activists to reach out to the people and expose the NDA which is trying to divert the attention of the people just to cover up its failures. He said the people have now realized that BJP won 2014 elections only on falsehood and they have started asking for the report card which BJP failed to present before the public as they have not done any good for the common masses.
Referring to sanctioning of five Medical Colleges and two Cancer Institute’s to J&K by Ghulam Nabi Azad when he was Union Health Minister he provided these facilities to J&K but unfortunately, NDA Govt at the Centre and BJP-PDP Coalition Government here have slowed down the work and have not achieved much progress on these projects. Saroori further said that PDP and BJP failed to resume the work on 850 Mega Watt Ratle Hydroelectric Project Drabshalla because they created hurdles in it.
He assured the people of Drabshalla Kishtwar for holistic and equitable development besides welfare of the people especially living in far flung areas. He said that next year Congress led government will be form in J&K and his main motive will be to tap the huge potential of power generation in the Chenab region and the Govt. will do concrete efforts to harness the same. He said that the area has a potential of around 20,000 MW which can cater to the electric needs of the people besides will absorb a large number of skilled, unskilled and large number of unemployed youth of the area. He said that the work on Ratle power project will be started next year only after formation of Congress government as the present Government has lost interest in the project and no steps has been taken in resumption of the work which otherwise would go a long way in meeting the electricity requirement of the State.
Saroori has also announced Rs. 19 crores for the blacktopping work on Shandari Drabshalla to Chalasu Tatani and Machepal Chamoti roads. The work will be started soon which will solve all the problems of these areas.
