Ramgarh, Apr 7 Former Minister and senior Congress leader Raman Bhalla on Wednesday alleged that the border dwellers have been totally ignored by the BJP Government at the Centre and alienation is growing in their minds and hearts. Addressing a huge public gathering at Ramgarh today, Bhalla asked the Centre and J&K Governments to wake up from deep slumber and solve the most sensitive problems of the border IB and LoC dwellers. Earlier, locals appraised him about prevailing ground situation and put forth a number of demands with main including special border area recruitment, regularization of all SPOs and eradication of menace of drugs. He further assured that all other demands put forth by them including of special recruitment for border area and issues of SPOs shall be taken up with concerned higher authorities. The programme was organized by Chairman JKPCC Exservicemen Cell Swarn Singh at Nanga & Swankha Panjayats . Prominent among those present on the occasion include Sanjeev Sharma, Babal Gupta, Jagpreet Kour, Col Swarn Singh, Bishan Choudhary, Jagdeep Singh, Darshan Singh, Kulwant Singh, Hardev Singh, Soudagar Singh, Suchet Singh beside others. Bhalla accused the BJP government of "manufacturing controversies" and using emotions to divide people so that they do not raise issues of misgovernance and economic mismanagement. "They do this to keep us blinded by overwhelming emotions. They do not want us to see the impact of their bad governance on our lives and livelihoods," he said.They raise new issues and manufacture controversies to evoke emotions, Bhalla said.The Congress leader said the BJP does not want people to be outraged about unemployment, collapse of MSMEs, failure of foreign policy, border mismanagement, farm crisis, women's safety and the dismantling of India brick by brick by them.He said the government does not want people to be outraged by the suffering of farmers, unemployed youth and the middle class due to their 'anti-people policies'.They choose to use emotions to divide us. But the emotion of suffering is one emotion that unites every single Indian. We stand one in our suffering. Every single household is facing economic hardships of one kind or another," he said.India deserves a government which works and thinks for every single Indian, not just a government of 'Hum do, Humare do'," he said. Congress leader said that Centre and J&K 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. Bhalla further said the long pending promise of Centre and J&K 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. Nominal ex-gratia has been given to the victims of Pak shelling that too in installments. The border dwellers are very brave people. They need to be properly looked after and encouraged. Since last 70 years, they are facing border problems. Former minister also demanded special recruitment drive for border youth in Police, Army, BSF, CRPF etc. Former Minister further said that Pak firing victims have not been compensated yet and aggrieved people have been forced to move from post to pillar to get compensation which is grave injustice with these victims who are brave people and have always played an important role in defending borders of country and also for integrity and sovereignty of country.
