Congress will emerge as single largest party in J&K: Bhalla

Former Minister and senior Congress leader Raman Bhalla claimed that the Congress will emerge as the single largest party in Jammu & Kashmir and asserted that Congress wants all mainstream parties in the State to thrive and will not play any role in breaking other political parties, especially regional parties, by poaching their leaders. While addressing a workers meeting here, Bhalla said “Our national leaders have formed alliance with regional and national secular parties. We had appealed to few parties; some of them are on board, while some are indirectly in touch with us. In short, we are well prepared for elections.”
Bhalla further said, “When all regional parties decided to back out from polls, it was the Congress that contested Urban Local Bodies and Panchayat polls and got encouraging results. We are confident that our party will perform well in all three regions of the State in the ensuing elections.”
“Congress’s recent performance in Assembly polls of three States will have a positive effect on political scenario in Jammu & Kashmir. People have closely followed the policies of BJP. J&K has became a victim of their harmful policies. The people are looking forward to Congress Government under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi,” he added. “Our poll planks for the elections will be development, employment and to bring back peace, which was derailed after the BJP took reins. Congress has brought peace to Punjab, Mizoram and Assam through dialogue and will adopt same strategy in Jammu & Kashmir. This problem cannot be solved through guns,” Bhalla added.
Appealing people from different walks of life, particularly youth to become a part of the party, Bhalla said, “Congress offers a platform to all for encouraging them to play their role in party’s vision of political resolution and good governance.”
Manjit Singh, District President, Samba and former Minister, in his address, regretted that contrary to people’s expectations, the BJP leaders surrendered even the marginal share of Jammu region in recruitments, so as to keep their alliance partner in good humour.
Among those present on the occasion included Gurbachan Kumari, Subhash Bhagat, Block Presidents, Ramgarh Bachan Choudhary, Capt. Mohan Lal Sharma, Babu Ram Bhagat, Paramjit Singh Pamma, Babbal Gupta, Vinod Mishra, Rajan Sharma, Col. Swaran Singh, Tirath Bhagat and Rakshit Sharma.
