JK Bank

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President G A Mir Wednesday said that Congress party won’t make compromises on the urges and aspirations of the people, shall fight against any kind of discrimination and injustice with any region in J-K.

In a statement, Mir also asked the Centre to change its J-K policy to restore confidence in the people of J-K, as that, people were feeling alienated due to the approach and wrong policies adopted by it (Centre Govt).

Addressing series of public meetings at Manzmoh, Dongwari, Shistergam, Dalwach in Dooru area of South Kashmir, Mir said that Centre was required to change policy with regard to Jammu and Kashmir in order to restore confidence of the people, who have been witnessing many things happening since the BJP assumed power at Centre resulting in there was deep alienation among the people.

Mir also reiterated that Centre must put an end to rumour mongering with regard to special status of J-K policy, saying that any misadventure won’t settle down things rather it would deteriorate the situation to a largest extent, which would neither be in National Interest nor J-K. Taking a dig at BJP Govt over failing to restore the democratic rights to the people, Mir said since the BJP came into power, the situation remained chaotic in J-K, no development has taken place, as was promised by BJP-PDP to people during 2014, instead the State Assembly was dissolved ensuring that no other party was able to form the Govt in J-K besides the elections to State Legislature were put on hold on one pretext or the other aiming to rule the State directly on the part of BJP Govt at Centre.

“Jammu and Kashmir State is one, any discrimination with any region won’t be tolerated,” Mir added and said that Congress party has always taken care of urges and aspirations of the people, it will continue to fight against discrimination and injustice with any regions.

Referring to the difficulties confronting people, Mir said the previous Congress Govt in State sanctioned road from Manzmoh to Bakerwal check in Veerinag under PMGSY, but the was intentionally stopped by the previous PDP-BJP Coalition merely on political lines by not caring about the hardships of inhabitants. He said Bakerwal Check is without electricity despite providing polls and wire by previous Congress NC Govt, it was unfortunate that PDP led Govt could Govt not even provide two transformers to this backward area, which was indicative of political vendetta on the part of PDP. Senior Congress leaders, PCC, DCC members, Block Presidents, Youth leaders also addressed the public meetings. (KNO)
