Budgam: Union Minister for Finance and Corporate Affairs, Anurag Singh on Saturday said District Development Councils and Panchayats will empower people of Jammu and Kashmir and people who are misleading them on restoration of Article 370 and 35 A are living in the fool’s paradise.
Addressing a massive gathering of people at General Busstand Budgam, Anurag Singh said earlier budget was passed by J&K government and now DDC candidates will now finalize it and work for the progress and development in their respective areas. Now common people are empowered by Narendra Modi Government who were suppressed during the past 70 years in the region. Three-tier systems was not functioning well.
He said now roads will be constructed, schools and hospitals will be build and everything will be decided by these DDC candidates and committee who are being elected by people from their own areas. Some people were creating fear and panic among people if they will vote during elections they will be targeted by bullets and grenades but people have sent a clear message to the world as they believe in Indian democracy.
The senior leader said people of Jammu and Kashmir want peace and progress in the region and they are against any kind of violence. People want young leaders and have rejected the traditional, dynastical politics Mufti’s and Abdullah’s as they have exploited the Jammu and Kashmir from the past 70 years. He further added that they are the same people who sent their children to foreign countries for luxuries life-style and compelled the youth of Kashmir for throwing stones, spreading separatism and promote terrorism in the region.
Singh said the life of common Kashmiris were made hell by these so-called leaders but Narendra Modi government decision was hope for youth of the valley. Singh said they are hopeful that new faces will develop Kashmir like other regions of valley. Despite ruling JK for more than 70 years, Gupkar Gang leaders could not develop basic amenities. Even in the 21st century, our mothers and daughters have to travel for kilometers for drinking water and similarly electricity, health care, and education sectors were also neglected.
Anurag Singh said they have to answer all these things and as they have deceived people over these decades and built their properties. In next 4 years, the people of Valley will be provided clean water to doorsteps, electricity infrastructure will be upgraded and other things will be done by central government. All claims of the Roshni act turned fake. They claimed that there will be free electricity and employment to youth by developing hydro projects and others claims. Both Abdullah’s and Mufti’s exploited the resources of Jammu and Kashmir. But now all have changed Narendra Government has provided health insurance cover of 5 lakh rupees, food to every citizen during Covid19 and no one died of hunger throughout the Country,” he said.
He said people of Kashmir have played an important role in participating in the elections and sent a strong message to everyone. On the occasion, BJP senior leader and national spokesman Syed Shahnawaz Hussain said that BJP is committed to the development and Gupkar Gupkar has created mistrust among the people. People are voting for development and have rejected the traditional parties who deceived them over the past seven decades. It is unfortunate that Gupkar Gang leaders are misleading people on fake promises.
Hussain said the party is committed to development and people will see dawn of development in upcoming years. BJP is serious about DDC and panchayat elections and will win a majority of seats. He said it is positive that there is a lot of enthusiasm among the youth in Kashmir during the ongoing elections and despite pressure from separatists and militants groups and people are coming forward.
Addressing the gathering, National General Secretary and Incharge J&K and Ladakh, Tarun Chugh appealed to people to vote for BJP candidates and negate the opportunist political fringe groups and teach them a life-time lesson. People are supporting change and we hope that BJP will majority of seats in Jammu and Kashmir. The youth of Kashmir gave so much love and trust to Narinder Modi by voting with heavy votes in the last 5 phases. Now Jammu and Kashmir will also move forward and will continue to grow. Chugh said while challenging that I challenge the people of Abdullah and Mufti dynastic politics from the land of Central Kashmir that there will be no talk on 370 and 35A, only then it will be possible to hoist the tricolor in Muzaffarabad in PoK under the leadership of Modi.
