National chairman of Bharatiya Janata Party's committee on legal affairs and election commission issues Satya Pal Jain accused the Congress, of ignoring the development of the areas of group housing societies (GHS) located in Sectors 48-51, which resulted in lack of basic facilities such as roads, hospital, schools, etc.

Addressing a gathering of the prominent representatives of GHS of Sectors 48-51, in Sector 51, on Sunday, Jain said local Congress MP's, Congress councillors and its mayor had failed to carry out any development in these areas.

He said, “The Congress government is not spending a single penny on development of roads, hospitals, schools etc. in these areas and instead is asking the societies to pay for the same.”

He said though the government had earned huge revenue by way of transfer of ownership on the basis of GPA but not even a single penny was given to the societies out of this for development works.

UT Admin's direction to not approach PMO questioned BJP has questioned UT Administration's stand wherein, it had ordered that UT officials could not approach Prime Minister Office or Presidents office directly for redressal of their complaints.

Addressing the participants at the Uttrakhand Cell of BJP, in Mauli Jagran, local unit chief Sanjay Tandon, said the diktat was uncalled for.

“We condemn the order. It is undemocratic,” Tandon said. The meeting was also attended by former BJP MP Satya Pal Jain.

The BJP alleged that there had been a series of undemocratic orders from the government and in one such order an employee could not approach the President or the Prime Minister's office directly.
