Senior National Conference’s Jammu provincial president Devender Singh Rana while addressing series of worker’s meetings in his Nagrota constituency on Monday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has ‘lost confidence’ of the citizens of Jammu and claimed that the party’s ship will sink under its own weight’
“The next year’s Lok Sabha elections and the subsequent polls to legislative assemblies will not only prove waterloo for the BJP but will witness the people’s power of rejection with contempt in immense measure,” NC’s Jammu provincial president Devender Singh Rana said.
Devendra Singh Rana further said that Jammu cannot move forward with this baggage anymore.
“The BJP has lost confidence of Jammu by betraying the people and exploiting them as commodity. The acts of omission and commission, inaccessibility, nepotism, favouritism apart from misgovernance and compromising with the interests of the region during its misrule with the PDP will keep haunting politically conscious and sagacious people.
“They will rebound when their turn comes,” he said.
Rana said the inherent contradictions within the BJP are public and the “day is not far when the sinking ship will sink under its own weight”.
He said by giving alibis on non-completion of various flagship projects in Jammu, the BJP has “blundered in undermining the wisdom of people, who have undergone a nightmarish era”.
“After three years, the people of Jammu got to know the meaning of BJP slogan ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’, which actually meant ‘Vikas’ of chosen few who were cradled in the seat of power,” he said.
He also asked the BJP to explain as to why it “failed” in taking various flag-ship projects in the region to logical conclusion.
