Minister of state in the Prime Minister's Office, Jitendra Singh on Friday said the Bharatiya Janata Party is the only viable democratic option for self-respecting people, particularly in a state like Jammu and Kashmir, because here the other major national party, namely the Congress, has in its bid to grab power helplessly succumbed to dynasty politics and yielded space to self-serving regional parties with no accountability.
This has resulted in mis-governance, corruption, nepotism and rampant misappropriation of central grants, he said while addressing public meetings in Inderwal constituency.
"The BJP is not controlled by any dynasty and unlike several other parties it is not a mother-son or father-son party. Narendra Modi has arrived as a lease of fresh air to liberate masses suffering from suffocation of price rise, corruption and exploitation," he said.
In order to get the real benefit from the Modi government at the Centre, Singh said, people in the state will have to ensure that they vote for the BJP in the state assembly elections and install a BJP government in J&K.
Referring to the poor development of far-flung areas as an example of regional discrimination, Singh said, certain problems like poor road connectivity and inadequate health facility have remain unaddressed even after 66 years of independence.
Later, Jitendra Singh reached Kishtwar and reviewed the arrangements of Narendra Modi's maiden election rally in the ongoing J&K assembly election campaign.
