Jammu Tawi, April 16
National Conference SC Cell Jammu on Monday assailed BJP led government at the Centre and PDP-BJP dispensation in Jammu and Kashmir for failing on all fronts and pushing the country to unprecedented chaos and political instability.
Addressing the workers at Kattal Batal in Nagrota Assembly Constituency, the Co-Chairperson of the Cell Vijay Lochan referred to the Centre’s failure in defending the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act timely, as a result of which the land stands diluted. He also took the State government to task for politicizing the Rassana rape and murder and polarizing the situation on communal lines. He described this as a dangerous trend and sought justice for the eight year old girl child. “The rapists and the perpetrators should be given exemplary punishment”, he demanded.
Lochan also castigated the coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir for failing in meeting the urges and aspirations of the weaker sections and referred to the dilution of reservation for reserved categories in promotions in the State.
The workers’ meeting was also addressed by Simar Dass Ex-Sarpanch, Joginder, Kuldeep Raj, Dharam Chand, Rattan Lal and Ashok Kumar.
