Cor­rup­tion, nepo­tism by NC, Congress de­stroyed J&K: Sethi

The Northlines - - STATE -

Jammu, Jan 10: BJP State Gen­eral Sec­re­tary Yud­hvir Sethi to­day lashed out at Congress and Na­tion Con­fer­ence say­ing that their wrong poli­cies not only en­cour­aged cor­rup­tion and nepo­tism in the state but also de­stroyed Jammu and Kash­mir.

Jammu Prab­hari Ju­gal Do­gra, Distt Pres­i­dents Baldev Singh Bil­lo­ria, Ay­o­d­hya Gupta were present on the oc­ca­sion. Sethi was ad­dress­ing work­ers gath­er­ing where Arun Sethi, Sunny Seghal and along with his work­ers joined BJP here to­day.

He said that after years of gov­er­nor rule, when Congress and NC came to power, their peo­ple un­leashed cor­rupt prac­tices, en­cour­aged loot and some of its min­is­ters who were bank­rupt built man­sions with pub­lic money and en­croached upon state land and pub­lic places.

Sethi said that al­most all the de­part­ments were de­stroyed by cor­rupt prac­tices and that’s the rea­son it took BJP Gov­ern­ment to stream­line ev­ery­thing for the con­ve­nience of peo­ple. The BJP leader said that had there been an or­gan­ised and cred­i­ble gov­ern­ment in place ever since in­de­pen­dence, sit­u­a­tion in Jammu and Kash­mir would have been dif­fer­ent. Ju­gal Do­gra wel­comed new en­trants into the party fold and said that it is the party func­tionar­ies who are re­turn­ing to their own food. Whoso­ever had left the party at what­so­ever post will be asked to work on same po­si­tion and strengthen BJP at all lev­els. Baldev Singh Bil­lo­ria added that BJP is quite sen­si­tive to peo­ple’s is­sues and this was the rea­son that it be­lieved in giv­ing peo­ple a trans­par­ent gov­ern­ment for the time it stayed in power in Jammu and Kash­mir State and is con­tin­u­ing to do so in the coun­try, un­like in past, where Congress di­vided peo­ple.

He fur­ther asked party work­ers to gear up for up­com­ing elec­tions, both state as well as gen­eral, and said the re­cent de­ci­sion to re­serve jobs for eco­nom­i­cally weaker sec­tions from within up­per casts was a long­stand­ing de­mand but only the Modi gov­ern­ment had the courage to do it.
