Taking a dig at the National Conference (NC)-Congress coalition, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has cautioned the people of Jammu and Kashmir against “mischievous propaganda” designed against the party.
Talking to reporters here on Friday, BJP state spokesperson Nirmal Kamal said the party had always been performing its duty by mitigating the woes of people by coming to their rescue; raising their concerns at every platform, including the state assembly; exposing the ruling United Progressive Alliance (UPA) at the Centre and misdeeds of the NC-Congress coalition government in the state on deeply-rooted corruption, irregular supply of electricity and water, series of scams such as land scams, unemployment, inflation etc.
But, all these remained unimportant to the NC-Congress rulers, as the state government continued to frame wrong policies and projecting wrong picture of its so-called achievements, while the public almost each day protested on the streets.
Justifying her stand, she said recently a survey conducted by the ministry of labour and employment revealed that the state government had nearly 80,000 vacancies in the government sector and the state stood at the top (10%) in terms of unemployment in the northern India.
At the same time, the state has 6 lakh unemployed youth registered with the employment exchange, she said.
Besides the court has directed the state government to handover the Roshini scam case to the Cenral Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which exposes the indulgence of government in the corrupt practices, she added.
“The self-claimed achievement of the coalition government is also exposed by the fact that the state government is neck-deep in debt, which has risen to `40,265 crore ending March 2013 from Rs 31,272 crore till March 2011, according to the comptroller and auditor general (CAG) report,” she said.
She added the statements of NC-Congress leaders, including the ministers, against the BJP after the issuance of the election notification for the Lok Sabha polls is a violation of the model code of conduct. The frequent “vicious propaganda” against the BJP by the NC and the Congress leaders is mischievously designed to divert attention of the public from their misdeeds and exposed false propaganda of development.
