National Conference Provincial President Devender Singh Rana on Monday lambasted BJP for “exploiting Jammu sentiment for votes”, saying the promises made by the party turned out to be hoax, as there is nothing to showcase on deliverance front.

“Borders are reverberating with shells, spilling blood of innocents but the much touted bunkers, safe shelter sheds and plots are nowhere to be seen despite the BJP ruling at the centre for the past four years and partnering government with its Xerox copy PDP for over three years”, Rana said while interacting with people during his extensive tour of Dansal Block in Nagrota assembly constituency, a party handout here said.

Rana asked what has been done during the past four years to deescalate tension along Line of Control and International Border, which has rendered the entire border population almost shelter-less, as they are forced to abandon their houses every other day due to continued shelling from across the border. 

Rana expressed concern over administrative and developmental inertia, as a result of which “the people of Jammu have suffered the most.” 

He dared the ruling coalition partner to come out with a record sheet as to what has been done for Jammu ever-since it donned the crown of ‘misgovernance’.

“Except for emotive slogans, the BJP has nothing to offer to Jammu”, he said and spelled out its failures on all fronts, especially development and unemployment. 

Describing the BJP as “ungrateful”, Rana said the massive mandate given by the people of Jammu has been responded with contempt. 

Meanwhile, Rana sanctioned four cremation sheds and a central park at Dhansal. He also initiated work on two link roads and two ponds in the area.
