JAMMU: Infuriated over the bulldozing of the houses of poor and marginalized people including the labourers and farmers to the exclusion of powerful elites, a contingent of Panther activists led by Rajesh Padgotra, Provincial President–JKNPP staged a thunderous protest in Jammu today.The protesters raised anti-govt and anti-BJP slogans and accused the govt. of succumbing to the political pressure and concealing the names of the BJP’s bigwigs involved in huge encroachment of State and forests land. Addressing the media, Padgotra admonished the govt for failing to retrieve the encroached State lands from the BJP Ministers, MLAs and MPs.He said though the administration had identified some of the big encroachers of parties like Congress, NC and PDP but seemed to have given a free hand to the notorious land grabbers of the BJP. Drawing the attention of Lt. Governor to take action against the culprits, he divulged while the names of political leaders hailing from Congress, NC and PDP have been brought to fore as land grabbers in the public domain, the BJP leaders were not exposed and were exclusively spared under the Saffron influence.He revealed that one BJP ex-MLA R.S Pathania of Ramnagar in conformity with the RTI reply had encroached 32 kanals and 9 marlas State land under his illegal possession including 9 kanals and 14 marlas usurped under Roshni scheme.He further pointed out that former Deputy Chief Minister Dr. Nirmal Singh had constructed a palatial bungalow near Army depot at Nagrota in contravention of the guidelines of Ministry of Defence. Similarly, another BJP ex-Minister from Kalakote Abdul Gani Kohli has reportedly encroached a huge chunk of forest land to run his business. Likewise ex-Minister of Saffron party Chander Prakash Ganga has encroached lands all over by coercion and other unlawful means. Padgotra sought to ensure vacation of entire illegal possession of encroachers and other elites by making a beginning from the BJP MPs, Ministers and MLAs.
