STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Former Minister and senior Congress leader, Raman Bhalla on Tuesday criticized current economic policies of the Central Government which led to high inflation rate and low GDP in the country. He said that BJP made a lot of promises to the people of country but none of them was fulfilled. Now, they are acting as a mute spectator to their sufferings, he said while addressing party workers of Gandhi Nagar Constituency. “During 2014 and 2019 polls, BJP made tall claims of creating jobs for the youth, however, the unemployment rate is increasing in the country,” the former minister said and blamed BJP for the falling growth rate of the country. Bhalla alleged that the Centre was not taking any effective steps to improve the economic situation of the country. He said that when the BJP was campaigning before the elections, they had promised to curb inflation and cut down the cost of basic amenities. But after coming to power, the BJP Government started increasing the prices of everything to protect interests of big business houses, he alleged. He further said that people had enough dose of mis-governance in the JK for last six years, saying people have realized that they have to support Congress which can address their issues and fulfill their expectations. He said the people of Jammu displayed faith in BJP while giving them huge mandate from Jammu region with the hope that their grievances will be taken note of and discrimination with Jammu will end, however, BJP after forming government sidelined issues related to Jammu. “About 35 lakh jobs have been lost in the construction sector. The big IT companies are all set to end about 40 lakh jobs,” he claimed. “Prices of vegetables and food items are getting out of reach of common people. Youth are not getting work because of the recession. Job creation remains the single biggest failure of this BJP Government,” he added. Bhalla highlighted issues of chemists and druggists in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir who have been struggling to renew their licenses as Pharmacy Council has ceased to exist from October 31, 2019 when Jammu and Kashmir Pharmacy Act was repealed as per the provisions of the Reorganization Act, 2019. He demanded Government to take a decision and provide relief to chemists and druggists of Jammu and Kashmir.
