JKNPP takes out protest rally in favour of daily wagers

Peeved over the despicable surrenders and blunders of the BJP which betrayed the aspirations of the people of Jammu Pradesh and youth in particular, scores of Panther Party workers wearing black bands on their arms assembled at party office in Udhampur and took out a massive protest rally seeking regularisation and release of pending wages of the daily wagers working in various departments.
The rally which was spearheaded by Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP and Balwant Singh Mankotia State President JKNPP after passing through Mukherjee Bazar culminated at Salathia Chowk where the leaders addressed the gathering. The protestors shouting anti- BJP and anti-Government slogans blocked the highway which resulted in a huge traffic jam for more than an hour.
Addressing the gathering, Harsh Dev Singh said that BJP which was voted to power in the Country and the State had failed to realize its grandiloquent promise of ‘Achey Din’ for good governance, development, employment opportunities, literacy, poverty alleviation, etc and was only indulging in rabble rousing and hollow rants for vote bank politics. Taking a pot shot at the BJP, Singh said that the Saffron Brigade was busy politicizing the Indian Army’s surgical strikes across LOC on 29th September by marketing the Army’s achievements as its own. He said that Indian Army had been carrying out such strikes earlier as well. While citing examples of Army’s valour, he revealed that in August 2011 a deadly tit for tat surgical strike under ‘Operation Ginger’ was carried out by Indian Army across the LoC in Kupwara which left 8 Pakistani soldiers dead and while returning back it brought 3 enemy heads against the two Indian martyrs.
Expressing grave concern over deteriorating socio-political plight of the State, Balwant Singh Mankotia said that BJP had totally succumbed to the commands of Kashmiri leadership by sacrificing the aspirations of the people of Jammu region only for the greed of power. He divulged that youth in particular had voted overwhelmingly in favour of the BJP in the Assembly elections but they appeared to be the major victims of Saffron brigade’s acts of betrayals and subterfuge.
Prominent who spoke on the occasion included Sukhdev Singh, Dhani Ram Attri, Sanjeet Kumar Sharma, Manju Singh, Jagdev Singh Jagga, Rampal Bhagat, Amarnath Mehra, Sunil Gudda, Sanjay Sharma, Rajinder Bali, Ankit Sanson, Gushu Sharma, Praduman Singh, Paramjeet Singh, Ashok Malkan, Pradeep Kumar, Ramesh Kumar, Uttam Kumar, Rajender Kumar, Kuldeep Bhagat, Sanjay Kumar, Mastan Singh, Tarun Chauhan, Deepak Singh, Mohinder Singh, Krishan Singh, Baldev Singh, Nazir Ahmad,
