JAMMU: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) State General Secretary Yudhvir Sethi along with Jammu Prabhari Jugal Dogra, Distt Presidents Baldev Singh Billoria, Ayodhya Gupta today lashed out at Congress and Nation Conference (NC) saying that their wrong policies not only encouraged corruption and nepotism in the state but also destroyed Jammu and Kashmir. Youth were alienated, development done on selective basis, no policy was ever framed to reach out to masses and make them partners in development.
Yudhvir Sethi was addressing a workers gathering where Arun Sethi, Sunny Seghal and alongwith his workers joined BJP here today. Speaking on the occasion, the BJP General Secretary said after years of governor rule when Congress and NC came to power their people unleashed corrupt practices, encouraged loot and some of its ministers who were bankrupt built mansions with public money and encroached upon state land and public places.
Sethi said almost all the departments were destroyed by corrupt practices and that's the reason it took BJP Government to streamline everything for the convenience of people. The prevailing unrest in Kashmir Valley especially amongst youth is also because only a couple of family ruled Kashmir, built empires and didn't care for general population.
The BJP leader said had there been an organised and credible government in place ever since independence situation in Jammu and Kashmir would have been different. Backdoor appointments, money exchanging hands, merit being ignored and almost negligible role in creation of jobs even in industrial sector were all major reasons for unrest in the state.
Jugal Dogra welcomes new entrants into the party fold he said that actually these are the party functionaries who are returning to their own food. Whosoever had left the party at whatsoever post will be asked to work on same position and strengthen BJP at all levels. Workers are party's strength and it's because of them that recently concluded Panchayat and ULB polls were won.
Baldev Singh Billoria added that BJP is quite sensitive to people's issues and this was the reason that it believed in giving people a transparent government for the time it stayed in power in Jammu and Kashmir State and is continuing to do so in country. Unlike past where Congress divided people this decision" is Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas".
He further asked party workers to gear up for coming elections both state as well as general said the recent decision to reserve jobs for economically weaker sections from within upper casts was a long-standing demand but only the Modi government had the courage to do it. Now children of brahmins, baniyas, Christians, Muslims and all others falling in this sphere will be benefitted. Corporators Anil Masoom, Gopal Mahajan, Sunita Koul, Ashok Gandhi, Kartar Mahajan, Ravi Singh, Chandan Mahajan and others were present on the occasion.
