BJP changes colours like chameleon, keep dual standards: Cong
7/31/2020 11:53:57 PM


JAMMU, July 31: Accusing BJP of putting Jammuties to great economic burden by installing toll plazas besides likely to give another gift of privatization of electricity, the J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) said that now it is trying to justify these moves, which they opposed before, reflect dual standards of BJP leaders.
In a statement several senior Congress leaders have questioned the self-contradictory stands of the BJP over the issue of toll plazas and termed it hypocrisy of the party for changing colours like chameleon on issues. They said that the BJP state unit through its president initially opposed the toll plaza at Sarore last year and also openly declared that there is no provision of toll plazas in the UTs across India. The BJP claimed that it would be reviewed by Centre government or BJP would demolish it.
However having failed to achieve the target and when another toll plaza has come up at Lakhanpur, the top BJP leaders including it UT President has gone into hibernation, while some other team of leaders are seen teaching lessons to the people about the highway norms, to hide their failures. This shows the bankruptcy of the BJP and not only duel face, but also their arrogant style and worst kind of hypocrisy.
The utterly failed BJP leaders who could not respect and represent the sentiments of the people of Jammu region, despite huge mandate, would do well if they keep mum rather than trying to prove that the people who voted them to power, an either ignorant about rules and regulations of national highway. Please shun such an approach towards the people, who question you after voting you to power, urged Congress to the BJP. They said that yet another gift of the BJP to the people is in the pipeline that is the privatization of electricity, which will not only jeopardize the rights of employees and daily wagers in the department but shall highly overburden the common and poor people. The signatories include Mula Ram, Raman Bhalla, G M Saroori, M S Niaz, Kanta Bhan, Jugal Kishore, Abdul Majid Wani, Yogesh Sawhney, Balwan Singh, Rajnish Sharma, Manmohan Singh, Indu Pawar (Ex-MLA), Shiv Kumar Shamra (INTUC) and others.
