JAMMU: Former Minister and senior Congress leader Raman Bhalla on Thursday launched a scathing attack on the BJP government, alleging that every section of the society, including farmers, traders and government employees were fed up with this “anti-people” dispensation.This was observed by former Minister while interacting with aggrieved persons of Dharap Panchayat in Shergarh area of Gandhi Nagar constituency.Prominent among those present on the occasion include Sarpanch Kashmir Singh, Mustaq Choudhary Tinni, Panch Soma Debi, Panch Ashwani Kumar, Pawan Kumar, Chander Singh, Surinder Singh, Davinder Singh beside others.He said that the poor-sections of the society are suffering a lot due to mis-rule of both Central and State Governments, which are led by BJP.He asked the people that if they want to mitigate their suffering they must come under the banner of Congress Party whose leaders have sacrificed their whole life for the upliftment of poor masses of India. Senior Congress leader accused the BJP Government of befooling the people of J&K by its false claims of development.Bhalla lashed out at BJP for abandoning people with their problems being related to the basic amenities during its nightmarish rule, saying the promises made during 2014 Parliamentary and Assembly elections proved just hoax.He said that BJP did nothing for the people except generating passions on religious and regional lines. He said the people have been living miserable life during the past more than six years, with nobody addressing their problems.Bhalla launched a scathing attack against the BJP over the amendment in the J&K Panchayati Raj Act, 1989 and claimed it was another attempt to further delay the assembly polls in the Union Territory.”BJP does not want to face the people in the assembly elections as it apprehends backlash over its anti-people decisions and policies which deprived the people of their identity and special rights to jobs and land,” he said.Bhalla questioned the basis and criteria for the equal number of 14 seats in each DDC for each district, ignoring the area and population of the districts besides selective “intrusions” of certain provisions. “It is another attempt to further delay the assembly elections and also deprive the existing block development councils (BDCs) from the rights already vested in them because a majority of them have non-BJP affiliations. How is it justified to have equal number of seats in larger districts like Jammu which has eight rural assembly segments and those districts having only two assembly segments?” Bhalla asked.Taking a dig at the BJP, the Congress leader said the ruling party at the Centre always talked of fairness in delimitation of assembly and Lok Sabha seats, but “failed to ensure justice and fairness in the delimitation of DDC seats based on population, area and topography.”He also alleged that the most important components of the 73rd amendment like an independent election commission, finance commission and ombudsman were left out.
