BJP-PDP Govt embracing stone pelters at the cost of deserving Jammu Youth: Sham
Posted 09 Jan 2018 05:12 PM

Expressing his anguish over deliberately ignoring unemployed educated deserving youth of Jammu region in recruitment, senior vice president of the Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) and former minister, Sham Lal Sharma today warned BJP leadership in general and party ministers in particular against testing patience of Jammu people.
Addressing Block Congress Committee’s monthly meeting here on Sunday, Sham Lal said that patience of the peace loving people of Jammu region, especially youth has been running out because during the last nearly three years this region has been ignored in all spheres of life. He said that it appears that the incumbent government in which BJP is equal partner is treating residents of Jammu region as second class citizens because despite having required qualification and merit, deserving youth were singled out without any reason.
Taking dig on BJP, Sham asked its leaders to clarify their stand on the issue of granting amnesty to stone pelters and subsequently providing jobs.
He said that BJP-PDP government on one hand is doing injustice with the youth of Jammu region in providing jobs and on the other side the anti-nationalists who are being released from jails in valley are being rewarded with employment. “With this discriminatory attitude on part of the government it compels the Jammu youth to indulge in violence. The valley is already disturbed due to wrong policies of government now the government wants to create disturbance in Jammu too which is otherwise peaceful hitherto fore”, he added Sharma said that the criminal silence maintained by BJP leadership on recruitment issue is an indication that government is doing regionally biased recruitment with the consent of BJP leadership.
Coming down heavily on BJP leadership especially Ministers/MLAs for not uttering even a single word against discrimination with Jammu region, former Congress Minister said that BJP leadership is answerable to the people of Jammu who had voted overwhelmingly in favour of BJP in 2014 Lok Sabha and Assembly elections with a hope that party would fulfill its promises.
Dubbing PDP-BJP unholy alliance as ominous for the State of J&K, Sharma said that State is passing through a very crucial period due to failure of the present dispensation. He said that with every passing day this regime is proving as non performing liability on the people of J&K.
BJP has back stabbed people of Jammu region as the BJP has brazenly abandoned its core agenda and has adopted indifferent approach towards problems of the masses.
