JAMMU: Lambasting the state BJP leadership for its spurious charge that AIIMS Coordination Committee is sponsored by some defeated political parties, Chairman, Coordination Committee for AIIMS and President JKHCBA, Jammu, Advocate Abhinav Sharma on Wednesday appealed to the general public of Jammu Province, as also, all the political parties active in Jammu to make the proposed 72 hour long Bandh a grand success.
Advocate Abhinav Sharma stated this while addressing an impressive gathering on the 6th day of the chain hunger strike organised in front of the statue of Maharaja Hari Singh on River Tawi Bridge. Those who sat on chain hunger strike included Kamla Sharma, President All J and K Home Guard Welfare Association and her colleagues Pawan Sharma, Usha Rani, Santosh Kumari, Shakuntla Kumari, Gopal Dass, Soba Singh, Rajinder Sharma, Ram Lal and Sanjay Sharma; members of Jammu Computers Dealers Association Rahul Dutta, Rajan Gupta, Naveen Gupta, Harbhajan Singh, Pranav Baghotra, Parminder Singh, Dheeraj Gupta, Amit Bansal, Ajay Kaul and Anil Sumbly; Lower Raghunath Bazaar Association senior Vice President Dheeraj Pargal, General Secretary, Rishu Gupta, Secretary Vinay Sharma, Cashier Rohit Gupta and volunteer Sunny Raina; Narinder Bhagat, General Secretary All J and K Megh Sudhar Sabha, Kesar Singh (Retd ADG P&T), Ram Lal Dogra, (Retd Assistant Commandant) President J and K Gaardi Mahasabha, Dr Kuldeep Raj, (Retd Regional Manager Oriental Insurance), Sat Paul, President Saryaara Sabha and Rattan Lal Bhagat, District President, Megh Sudhar Sabha.
Abhinav Sharma ridiculed the BJP leadership and said that the party’s stand has been completely exposed as neither the Prime Minister nor the Union Finance Minister on Tuesday announced AIIMS for Jammu. He said the Coordination Committee was fully aware of the BJP’s dirty-trick department which did everything during the past few days to puncture and defeat the ongoing mass movement in Jammu for the establishment of AIIMS and completion of Artificial Lake project over River Tawi. “The repeated announcements in Jammu by various BJP ministers that AIIMS will be announced for Jammu on Tuesday turned out to be a mere hoax as none of the competent authorities in New Delhi uttered a word on the issue that has put the people of Jammu region on warpath,” said Abhinav Sharma.
Advocate Abhinav Sharma further charged the BJP with not only handing over all the crucial departments to the PDP on a platter but also excluded Jammu from those departments which are charged with the responsibility of dealing with internal security of the state.
Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI), Jammu President Rakesh Gupta warned the authorities that their indifferent attitude towards the genuine demands of the people of Jammu Province could lead to a serious law and order situation in the Province. He regretted that the two complete Bandhs and one massive torch light procession in Jammu couldn’t move the biased and insensitive authorities. “The people of Jammu region had never expected that the BJP will ditch and cheat those who voted overwhelmingly for the party both in Lok Sabha and Assembly elections. The BJP will fail to win even a single seat in Jammu Province in case it continued to harm the legitimate political, economic and social interests of the people of Jammu Province,” Rakesh Gupta said and added that the BJP has everything to win and nothing to lose by following a courageous policy aimed at meeting the needs and aspirations of its core constituency without harming the genuine interests of the people of Kashmir.
