Harsh Dev Singh wants early eviction of former ministers, legislators of BJP from govt accommodation

Early Times Report

Jammu, July 2: Questioning the J&K administration over adopting different yardsticks with respect to eviction of ex- Ministers and MLAs from government accommodation Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP described the continued stay of BJP leaders in government houses and ministerial bungalows as reflective of BJP’s duplicitous and treacherous conduct.
Singh accused the saffron party of allowing its leaders to illegally occupy the government quarters and ministerial bungalows and executing forceful eviction of the leaders of opposition from their allotted residences. He was addressing a press conference here today.
Singh said the BJP had been running a proxy rule in J&K to impose two sets of law here, one for itself and other for the opposition. “While the BJP ex- Ministers and MLAs are conferred with all kind luxuries of life at the cost of tax payers’ money, the leaders of the opposition are being made victims of political vendetta and policy of persecution”.
He pointed out that BJP leaders were still occupying the government quarters illegally in brazen defiance of the High Court’s orders for eviction where as many leaders of the opposition had either vacated their residence at will or several others were evicted forcefully from their quarters by the department of Estates.
“Ex- Ministers and MLAs of the BJP including its leaders are enjoying the govt. accommodation without paying the rent for several months and without a single penny having been paid as power tariff. It was shocking and disgusting that a government quarter has been allotted to Altaf Bukhari’s JKAP for running its political office adjacent to the residence of BJP’s State President. Isn’t it a loot of public exchequer? Is the notice for eviction only for the opposition and not for the BJP,” asked Harsh.
Castigating the BJP for pursuing the policy of persecution against its political adversaries, Singh regretted that the saffron brigade had stooped to a low level of politics and was resorting to ‘witch hunting’ against the leaders who had exposed its double standards and raised voice against its acts of duplicity and deceit. He asserted while others may have been cowed down by BJP’s intimidatory tactics, it was only Panthers Party which would continue to unveil all nefarious plans of the Saffron party with sheer audacity.
“BJP has held the constitution hostage in J&K. Its dictatorial policy of suppression will not last long. The people have become well versed with its real face. BJP is a murderer of democracy which will face the wrath of public verdict in the next Assembly elections”, said Singh. He called upon Lieutenant Governor to take cognizance of the illegal occupation of the government quarters and bungalows by the BJP leaders. He sought early eviction of all ex- Ministers and MLAs from the govt. accommodation besides stern action against the defiant leaders who were illegally occupying the same in collusion with a biased administration.
