BISHNAH: Expressing serious concern over the deteriorating security situation in the State and Kashmir in particular, Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP and former Minister admonished the BJP-PDP combine for placating and appeasing the secessionist and subversive forces in the Valley which had immensely emboldened the militants to execute their nefarious designs.
Addressing a gathering at village Makhanpur in Bishnah, Harsh said that BJP which always trumpeted itself as ‘Messiah’ of Jammu Pradesh holding nationalist character had miserably surrendered and bartered away the aspirations of the Dogras to its Kashmir centric ally for the sake of power crumbs.
“The treachery of the Saffron party over its kernel philosophy had paved way for the rehabilitation of stone pelters besides surrendered militants while the discrimination with the Jammu youth in the sphere of employment soared, and other sects including the border dwellers, farmers, traders, businessmen, etc. of the region also bore the brunt of the Saffron acquiesce,” he said.
Surprised over the shocking shoot out at SMHS Hospital in Srinagar on Tuesday, Harsh said that the bizarre incident had sent shock waves all across the State during which the terrorists gunned down two policemen and managed to take away from their custody one of the dreaded LeT Dy. Commander Naveed Jhaat alias Abu Hanzala.
Harsh said that the State had been witnessing anarchy ever since the sinister alliance had assumed power where the militants and the anti-nationals were ruling the roost while the security personnel were manhandled, heckled, slapped and humiliated by the subversives in the Valley. He said that the impuissance of the BJP at the Centre in dealing with the secessionist forces and the State Government registering FIRs against the army in the Valley had also given an opportunity to Pakistan for executing its nefarious designs on our soil. He said that the rogue nation had been pounding the border hamlets persistently all across the IB and the LoC with mortar shells and missiles taking a heavy toll on our security personnel besides causing huge damage to lives of border dwellers, cattle stock and crops.
Harsh said that it was shocking to know that the interlocutor appointed by GoI went to address the grievances of the people at R.S Pura but paid no heed to the border victims of Arnia, Alah, Poal, Tarewa in Bishnah constituency who were also the worst sufferers of Pakistan’s misadventures.
Supporting the cause of the farmers of Jammu in the ring road construction whose lands had been acquired by the State Government at petty prices, Harsh sought the extension of ‘Land Acquisition Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act’ (LARR Act of 2013) to the State of J and K so that they could be provided adequate compensation at four times the market value of the land like other farmers of the country.
Yashpaul Kundal while addressing the local issues said that Makhanpur and other adjacent villages were facing shortage of health care facilities.
Rajesh Padgotra, Romesh Khajuria, Brijender Paul Singh, Rajeshwar Jamwal, Rohit Sharma, Davinder Singh, Rajinder Singh, Gurbachan Singh, Amreek Singh, Subhash Chander Bhagat and Mohinder Singh were also present.
