Jammu, All India Congress Committee (AICC) senior leader and Incharge of J&K affairs Bharat Singh Solanki on Saturday accused BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of making false promises to check price rise, providing two crore jobs and doubling the income of farmers.
However, the former Union Minister said even after ten years, people realize that every time the BJP come out with a diversionary tactics before elections.
Addressing a convention organised by OBC, Minority, ST and Kisan Congress besides refugees at RS Pura along with Senior PCC leadership and prominent leaders of these sections, Solanki flayed the BJP’s policies against the poor, downtrodden and farmers who have suffered immensely under unprecedented price hike and joblessness.
Modi made tall promises in 2014 to attract the poor and downtrodden towards BJP but the unprecedented price hike, lack of jobs and anti-poor, anti-farmers policies has ruined them while the rich are enjoying under BJP, the senior congress leader alleged.
He said Congress took care of all sections especially poor and downtrodden through its policies and programmes and it implemented 73rd and 74th amendment for their political reservations at all levels of grass roots institutions but in the delimitation, justice was not done to various deprived sections, minority communities and areas in J&K.
With the abolition of upper house the minority sections will get deprived of due representation in the legislature, the former Union Minister said and also referred to the package for refugees framed by congress which was not fully implemented by BJP government.
