JAMMU, MAR 26: Member of Parliament from Jammu-Poonch Constituency, Jugal Kishore Sharma blamed Congress for the current logjam in Lok Sabha jeopardizing crucial time to hold discussions on vital public issues.
While addressing a press conference here today, Sharma, who was flanked by BJP State Secretary Sanjay Baru and State Press Secretary Dr Pardeep Mahotra, said that the Parliament is a premier institute acting as a platform for the projection of public concerns. He said that to sit in the House is a privilege enjoyed by the law makers and thus is to be judiciously utilized by one and all. The Parliamentarians are duty bound to talk and hold discussions on various public concern issues in the precious time, which is being killed by Congress, he said.
Jugal alleged that Congress is afraid of the good results from the smooth functioning of Parliament as Prime Minister Narendra Modi is unstoppable in his yearning for good. Congress is devoid of issues now, due to phenomenal decrease in corruption and great pace of development. Their actions are causing huge economic and time loss, in which so many laws pertaining to farmers, youth, students could be discussed and passed. Parliament is log jammed for over 20 days since March 5. Congress must stop this and come forward to hold talks. This is a deliberate malafide attempt by Congress, which we all condemn, he added.
Jugal appealed the country’s youth to come forward for entrepreneurship. He talked about Skill development and ‘Mudra Yojna’ for promoting Private Sector which he termed as backbone of country’s economy and growth. He said that the Government is taking serious steps for this.
He said that the abandoned development projects in the state have been revived while many new projects have been launched. Work on Jammu to Poonch Highway has been commenced, new bridges, IIT, IIIM, AIIMs, Medical Colleges, Sabarmati type river development for Tawi, bunkers, new battalions for border residents are few of many achievements for state, he stated.
Jugal also condemned the cane-charge on Nowshera people and termed the incident as unfortunate which could have been avoided with restraint.
He called for free and best medical facilities, as well as compensation for the injured.
