Cong, NC spreading concocted stories: Prof Virender

BJP State Spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta strongly rebutted the statement of JKPCC Chief G.A. Mir criticizing the working of PDP-BJP government and claiming that Congress shall make the present government accountable and answerable to the people. He asked him “how much the Congress government was accountable and answerable to the people in the last 12 years of its rein in the state” and added that the Congress party during its rule has always ignored the interests of the people and by its actions promoted the separatism and terrorism in the state. The party in particular, deceived the people of Jammu region, who always supported and voted in its favour. He said that the people of Jammu region suffered worst kind of discrimination in all walks of life, when it was in power and it always befooled the people of Jammu region by making false promises which were never fulfilled. He added that the Congress ministers and party leaders served their own interests, indulged in corruption, malpractices, minted huge money and built palatial palaces. He asked the Congress leaders to give the account of public money they looted and property they acquired during the period of Congress rule in the state and observed that it is because of their misdoings that the people rejected Congress party and dethroned it from the power.
Prof. Virender added that on the other hand there is no case of corruption so far raised against any of the ministers of PDP-BJP alliance, whereas number of ex-minister of the Congress party who are facing corruption cases in the State Accountability Commission. He also charged the Congress and NC for playing divisive and destructive politics, dividing the people on communal and regional lines and said that this is obvious from the stand that these parties took in NIT episode, on the issues of Sainik Colony, NEET and re-settlement of Kashmiri Pandits in the Valley.
The Spokesperson also slamed Omar Abdullah for his allegation that PDP-BJP government lacks the vision and it has nothing to its credit and has wasted 16 months of governance. He said that the fact is NC-Congress alliance government was completely directionless and non-performing, and that during their period there was nothing worth mentioning achievement.
Prof. Virender narrated that present PDP-BJP alliance government is honestly working on the agenda of development and for the welfare of the people of Jammu and Kashmir. He said that the people who were affected by the floods in the Valley as well as in Jammu and Ladakh regions, have been compensated for the losses they suffered and got reestablished. He illustrated that new Development projects have been initiated and targets for their time bound completion have been set and added that all the three regions are being developed on equitable basis.
Prof Virender added that the institutions like AIIMS, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Indian Institute of Mass Communication were sanctioned for the state, by the Government of India during small span of PDP-BJP government.
