JAMMU: Amused over the outbursts and ‘melodramatic rants’ of Ch. Lal Singh and Chander Parkash Ganga over the Rassana case, after their dismissal from Council of Ministers, Harsh Dev Singh, JKNPP Chairman and former Minister, questioned their silence over the matter between March 1 and April 13, i.e the date of their sacking from ministerial berths.
He pointed out that the two ministers had assured the people in a public meeting at Kootah, Hiranagar on March 1 of getting the case probed through CBI within two days and even threatened of pulling down the government in case the PDP refused to accept the demand.
He regretted that all the tall talk and loud pronouncements of March 1 proved hoax and vanished into the then air when Mehbooba turned down the demand of CBI probe the very next day.
And with that did the said ministers vanish into the blue with not a word heard from their side for next 43 days till April 13, the date of their extermination.
He said that during the intervening period, the people of Rassana, Hiranagar and adjoining localities desperately looked for the two leaders, sending them reminders who however failed to respond to their repeated calls.
It was the toughest period for the people of district Kathua who faced nightmarish experiences with males, females, aged and children languishing on the roads and facing police atrocities and administrative pressures with none of the BJP ministers or MLAs coming forward for solace or succour, lamented Harsh.
When the people of district Kathua including females were being Lathicharged, arrested and humiliated, these ministers preferred to remain insulated in their cocooned and sanitised ministerial world deliriously unmindful of the loud promises made by them, he regretted.
And now, after losing their ministerial berths, they were trying to re-emerge as their champions much to the amusement of the people affected and aggrieved by their outrageous conduct, said Harsh.
“Had the two ministers resigned immediately after their assurance of CBI probe in March 1 rally was rejected by Mehbooba, the people would have welcomed them. But the said ministers went into hibernation after Mehbooba’s ‘no’ to CBI probe and disappeared from the scene for 43 days when eventually they were sacked on April 13.
“And after their ouster, they have suddenly appeared as the sympathizers of public rebuking their own govt and charging it of working under the tutelage of Geelani, a realization which has dawned upon them, a bit too late”, rued Harsh.
Advising the BJP Ministers to refrain from such theatrical moves, Singh said that they should apologize to the people for all their treachery, double speak and for having exploited their gullibility. He said that people had recognised the real faces of power hungry BJP leaders behind their deceptive facades and would give them a befitting reply at the appropriate time.
