STATE TIMES NEWS BASANTGARH: Accusing BJP of having failed to fulfill even a single promise made to its electorates during 2014 Assembly elections, Harsh Dev Singh, JKNPP Chairman and former Minister on Thursday said that coming elections would prove to be a Waterloo for fake and dishonest leaders. These leaders only amassed wealth and worked for their own personal enrichment at the cost of public, said Singh. He said that those who had abused public trust, would not only be made accountable and answerable, but appropriately replied and responded. He said that simmering underlying discontent was fast bursting into fury as was noticed in several Ramnagar villages, where people were openly confronting the mandated leadership. “It is not easy to deceive people. Today people remember each word spoken during elections, each action, each promise and each pledge. How hard we try, we can’t wipe the slate clean and erase the public memory with one new shot. You have to account for the U-turns that you took on your promises made during elections and on the strength of which you were voted to power,” Harsh said while addressing public meetings in villagers Pachound, Dandi, Chakaal, Sia-merri, Kot, Langa and Balota Chigla in Dudu Basantgarh belt of Ramnagar constituency today. Alleging deprivation and neglect of rural and remote areas, farmers and youth by the erstwhile regime, Singh said that grim political regression of saffron rule shall continue to haunt people of Jammu region. “None spoke for educated youth of Jammu region who were subjected to the most hostile discrimination in services during last four years. None of the mandated leaders could rake up cause of daily-rated and other casual and need based workers, who were denied wages for years together. No MLA could raise his voice in Assembly against anti-Jammu stance taken by Kashmir-centric leadership on multifarious issues including AIIMS, holiday of Maharaja Hari Singh’s birthday, Art 35-A and so on. None had the guts to confront the Kashmir based MLA who raised pro-Pak slogans inside the Assembly,” said Singh. Charging BJP MLAs of failure on all fronts, Singh said they could neither satisfy the people on developmental front nor could protect the honour and dignity of Dogras. Urging masses to overthrow the failed leadership, Singh said that people had paid a very heavy price for voting these opportunist leaders, who worked solely for their own loaves and fishes. He assured public to revive development tempo in full swing in Ramnagar constituency, once such self-centered and corrupt politicians were shown the doors.
