• The picture of development projected by the MLA is untrue. The constituency known for its power generating units, has its villages devoid of electricity.



• No new roads were constructed.



• The MLA has done nothing for the workers of the closed unit of J K synthetics as per the ‘gratuity’ and ‘factory’ acts.
