JAMMU, SEP 9: Former Minister and senior Congress leader Raman Bhalla has said that BJP cannot absolve itself from a series of political failures in the State over the last four years.”The BJP being a coalition partner in the State Govt and holding office in the Central Government had promised several promises to people of State but none of these promises which were publicly announced have been fulfilled. If they had sincerely followed up, the situation could have improved,” Bhalla said while interacting with people of Sanjay Nagar area of Gandhi Nagar constituency here today. The meeting was organized by Ex Corporator & PCC Member Dwarka Choudhary. Prominent among those present on the occasion include Jeet Singh, Madam Paramjeet Kour Madam Madhu, Parkash Singh, Pappu Jatt, Darshan Singh, Janak Singh, Jasbir Singh Jassi, Gurudev Singh, Balbir Singh besides others.
Terming the tenure of Coalition Government as an example of complete betrayal as all their poll promises proved to be hollow; Bhalla said despite getting huge mandate from Jammu and Kashmir respectively, PDP-BJP failed to deliver on single platform. By indulging in personal issues they left the State people into lurch. While alleging that people of many localities of Jammu city are facing shortage of water, ration and other crisis, former Minister said that rising inflation coupled with other problems have made the life of people miserable in the State. Bhalla said that BJP worked totally against the interest of poor, farmers, unemployed youth and working class in country. He said that the Coalition Government had failed in reaching out to the suffering border residents and those who have been affected by the rains and the overall scenario across the State is horribly pathetic. Former Minister said that the people of Jammu region have been left to the mercy of God. He said the soaring prices of essential commodities have badly affected the middle class and the poor families. While slamming both Central and the State Governments for their failure to control rising inflation that has badly affected domestic budget, Bhalla said this Govt has failed to contain price hike.
