Congress protest against ‘failure of government’

Jammu: Congress today held protests alleging “total failure of the government to provide basic amenities like drinking water, electricity, ration and hike in prices of petrol, diesel and other essential commodities” in Jammu and Kashmir.

The protest held by the District Congress Committee (Urban), Jammu was led by DCC chief Anil Chopra.

Terming BJP as “mute spectator”, JKPCC Vice President Raman Bhalla said the party’s leaders have failed to represent the people for safeguarding their own interests.

He alleged that BJP has been trying to concede on various matters against the interests of people while maintaining a completely different public posture to throw dust in the eyes of the people.

Bhalla said the people have right to know as to what happened to the promises made by the BJP for more than six decades to remove the Article 370, grant citizenship to the West Pakistan refugees, sealing the borders to check any sort of infiltration and crush the militancy by strengthening the security forces.
