He said Prime Minister Modi has forgotten his promises to the nation on issue of safety and security of the country and he is mostly touring in the world giving his advice to other nations, instead of being concerned as to what is happening in the country on various fronts especially on the issue of security.

Azad reminded Prime Minister and BJP of taunting the UPA government headed by Dr. Manmohan Singh of being weak government on some rare incidents of the causalities of Our Jawans on Borders and militant attacks on our soil but now when there are series of such unabated incidents, Modi government owes an answer to the nation.

Congress leader questioned who invited Pak PM on oath ceremony and exchange shawls, who went to Lahore amidst continued incidents of Border firing and militant attacks and who shared “Biryani” etc, Azad asked taking a pot shots on the Prime Minister Modi’s policy towards Pakistan.

He also said that when Prime Minister Modi was engaged in “Jhula diplomacy” with Chineese counterpart, the Chinese Army was busy entering territory in Doklam.

Azad said that the BJP has forgotten all other promises made to the various sections of the people during elections and now looking for other issues to polarize and divide the society as the general elections are drawing near.

He said Modi government is not concerned about the gruesome incidents of Rape reported regularly and atrocities on the Dalits and others in the name of religious beliefs by fake and false allegations etc.

The farmers are committing suicides in large numbers as they are not getting the adequate price of their produce, the unemployed youth are fed up as the promised two crores jobs annually are nowhere, as around 4.5 lacs jobs were provided so far by NDA government, the demonetization has badly affected the common man and small and medium scale business class due to the poor and faulty economics policies of the government.

Azad also referred to the unprecedented price hike which has broken the backbone of the poor and common man. He reminded that BJP stalwarts now in the cabinet would protest on streets over nominal hike of essential commodities but now the prices of LP Gas and other items of common use have touched sky, they are silent.

He accused the BJP of emotionally exploiting the people during the last Lok Sabha and assembly Elections in the State on the name of religion and region besides painting the Congress party as a “Villain”, regretting that the party (Congress) which has a history of sacrifices during the freedom struggle and for the unity and integrity of the country.

Azad lauded the role of Jammu region which became an abode of the people of all religions and faiths from all districts of the state during the peak of militancy and now also it is example of religious brotherhood and tolerance but there are attempts to disturb and destabilize this age old traditional harmony by the vested political interest. He appealed to the people to remain united and thwart such designs in future also.

Congress leader paid rich tributes to those martyred in the Sunjwan militant attack and conveyed sympathies with their families. He lauded the Jawans for eliminating terrorists at the cost of their lives. Earlier he enquired about the condition of the injured in the hospital in the morning.

He was accompanied by CLP Leader N. Rigzin Jora, Sr. vice-president Sham Lal Sharma and G.M. Saroori.

Expressing grave concern over the continued militants attacks within the state and border shelling in the recent years of their rule, Mir described the present centre and State government as total failure on security fronts.

The increased causalities of forces and civilians in recent pasts is matter of great concern and questioned the policy of Modi government and PDP-BJP government in the state. he said that state government has failed to maintain law and order as security situation has worsened to the extent that the Panchayat and Lok Sabha elections to Anantnag could not be held and common man is not safe anywhere in the state.

Mir said that the coalition government is worst example of misrule, misgovernance, favoritism, nepotism and corruption. Even the works under MGNREGA are sanctioned on the recommendation of MLAs and people are deprived of their basic rights.

He said that the worst kind of favoritism to their own kith, kin and near & dear ones is the hallmark of this government. The common people are the worst hit, as developmental activities and welfare measures are available to the selected people affiliated to ruling class.

The people of different sections and youth are agitating for their due rights but the government is indifferent and engaged in their own welfare. He said that congress party has tried to play the role of the responsible opposition both inside and out the legislature. Series of conventions and programs were held through nook and corner of the state to highlight the issues of the people and make the government accountable.

He said that party would emerge stronger as the people now realize the total failures of BJP and PDP in their respective constituencies.

Sham Lal Sharma berated the BJP for its fake slogans and unfulfilled promises in the power. BJP has forgotten its promises for the sake of power after exploiting the people on various emotional issues but failed in delivery.

CLP leader, N. Rigzin Jora, castigated the Modi Government for its total failure to deal with Pakistan sponsored militancy and with aggressive China which has established its hold in Doklam. He said that people were exploited by the “Jumlas” of BJP in the country and in Jammu region, but people now realize their utter failure.

Raman Bhalla lambasted the BJP for its total failure to ensure the safety and security of the people in the state and are badly exposed for their surrender for the sake of power. BJP Ministers and legislators are mute spectators to the weak and discriminatory policies of the government.

Our Jawans and civilians are becoming targets of militants and Pakistan on daily basis and the government has no road map to deal with the situation. The people would teach them a lesson as and when occasion comes and cautioned the people against the communal and divisive policies of the BJP. He paid rich tributes to the martyrs and conveyed heartfelt sympathies to their families, Bhalla added....
