JAMMU, MAY 20:
Former Minister and senior Congress leader Raman Bhalla on Sunday alleged that the border dwellers have been totally ignored by the BJP Government at the Centre and `BJP-PDP’ combine in the State and alienation is growing in their minds and hearts.
Addressing a public meeting at Channi Rama in Gandhi Nagar constituency today Bhalla strongly condemned frequent border ceasefire violations by Pakistan and asked the Centre and State Governments to wake up from deep slumber and solve the most sensitive problems of the border IB and LoC dwellers.
The meeting was organised by Ex Corporator Kamal Singh & PCC Member Vishal Mahajan. Prominent among those present on the occasion include Block President Jatinder Singh Chib, Ajaz Choudhary, Sarpanch Manhor Lal, Panch Kuldeep Raj Billa, Haji Barkat Ali, Laqyat Ali, Karan Singh, Faroq Choudhary, Jagdish Bittu, Gurupurab Singh Sodi, Om parkash Pappu, Master Parvez Ahmed, Sai Dass, Raj Kumar Raju beside others.Congress leader said that Centre and State governments have miserably failed to fulfill their promise of providing five marlas of plot at safer places to each family on the IB and LoC and soft Bank loan for construction of houses. Former Minister asked the Government to allot five marlas of plot and soft loan to the border dwellers immediately.
He further said the long pending promise of Centre and State Government to construct community bunkers and individual bunkers have also become a day dream as government has totally failed to solve this sensitive issue of the border dwellers.
