JAMMU: Stunned by the overwhelming support to BJP in the recently concluded elections of ULBs and Panchayats in the state and fearing their sure defeat in forthcoming polls, the leaders of the opposition parties in J&K are making such statements which themselves raise question mark on what they claim or charge. Not a single day passes when the senior leaders of Congress and NC try to mislead the people with false promises of coming to power. The fact is that people will once again express their faith in BJP and push opposition parties to wall.
This was stated by BJP State Spokesperson Balbir Ram Rattan, while questioning NC and Congress to explain what they did during their rule, told them that BJP brought prestigious educational and professional institutions like IIM, IIT, Food Craft Institute, Indian Institute of Hospitality & Management, Institute of Mass Communication. It is BJP which got the emoluments of VDCs doubled, first Weather Forecast Instrument was installed at Sanji Chat in Katra during BJP rule, it introduced Ayushman Health Insurance Scheme. Jammu migrants are being considered at par with Kashmir migrants only in BJP time.
The BJP expects that the opposition parties in the state might know that Dogri language was included in the 8th Schedule of the Constitution with the efforts of BJP during Atal Behari Vajpayee government. BJP honoured great Dogra ruler Maharaja Hari Singh by installing his statues while it was heading JMC. Further it dedicated a park on the bank of river Tawi to Maharaja Hari Singh while sharing power in the state.
Balbir further informed that first ever Seed Processing Plant in the state got established in Kathua under BJP rule, Dreamland Park constructed in Kathua and foundation stone for High Altitude Medicinal Plant in Bhaderwah has been laid recently. Balbir said that the BJP’s tenure of three and half year in state’s coalition was a golden period as all the three regions of the state witnessed equitable development and expressed hope that the people will not make mistake of supporting opposition parties which have nothing to claim in reality but always indulge in divisive politics.
