BJP-PDP Rule Was Worst Period For J&K : Sham

JAMMU

Former Minister and senior Congress leader, Sham Lal Sharma has said that BJP-PDP rule was the worst period for the State in which ongoing development works were either put on hold or were at snail’s pace.

“The BJP made so many promises like abrogation of Article 370, construction of Shri Ram Temple, settlement of PoK DPs and allotment of plots to border population but none of them were fulfilled,” the congress leader said while addressing monthly meeting of Block Congress Committee at Akhnoor.

He asked party workers to work hard with zeal at grass root level for the forthcoming parliament and assembly elections. He further said that elections of Lok Sabha and assembly elections can be announced at any time now. He exhorted them to ensure victory of the Congress candidates.

He also cautioned them that the BJP workers will try to unleash the campaign of malicious propaganda against Congress party. Sham said that all out efforts be made to expose them so that the innocent people are not befooled again as these elements did in previous election. He emphasized cadres to gear up for the 2019 Parliamentary and Assembly election to ensure that the divisive policies on the part of BJP are countered.
