NC assails PDP-BJP govt for indifferent attitude towards border sufferers

National Conference (NC), co-chairman of SC cell, Vijay Lochan on Wednesday assailed the ruling PDP- BJP for its total neglect and indifference attitude towards the suffering of border people. 

While addressing party worker here at Marlian in  R S Pura , he expressed grave concern over continued border shelling in the forward villages along the line of control in the Jammu region and expressed solidarity with those injured and suffered in terms of colossal damages caused to property, livestock and standing crops.

He also said “Intermittent shelling has caused acute fear psychosis among the border dwellers leading to their frequent dislocation from homes and hearths”.

while reminded the BJP of promises made during 2014 parliamentary and assembly elections with regard to construction of bunkers, safe shelter sheds and allotment of 5-Marla plots to vulnerable segments of border population, he asked why no headway has been made even after three years of their rule at the centre and in the                                                  state. 

“Creating promised infrastructure apart, the BJP leaders could not find even few minutes to visit the suffering people, who they exploited to hilt during electioneering”, he added.

Lochan also said that PDP-BJP government has totally failed in governing the state, development has come to standstill and administrative inertia is discernible. 

Sharing the agonies of the border dwellers, National Conference, provincial vice president, Anil Dhar expressed sympathy with those having lost their live-stock, crops and suffered damages to their properties.

Dhar sought immediate survey of the damages by the Revenue officials and interim relief for the sufferers till compensation cases were processed. 

He also stressed the need for early rehabilitation of those suffering damages to their homes keeping in view the ensuing winter months and urged the government to devise a mechanism for safety of the border people.
