Reservation for economically weak; Shiv Sena terms political stunt
STATE TIMES NEWS
JAMMU: While supporting quota for economically weaker sections, Shiv Sena Bala Sahib Thackeray, J&K Unit on Wednesday asserted that the move was a proof of the BJP’s fear of losing forthcoming Lok Sabha polls.
Briefing media persons here jointly Dimpy Kohli, State President Shiv Sena and Manish Sahni General Secretary slammed BJP for remembering the economically weaker sections of the society with the Lok Sabha elections approaching adding that they took the step after their electoral defeats in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Telangana Assembly elections.
“The decision taken by the Central Government is good but the intention behind the decision seems to be not good. It looks more of a political stunt as it has come just ahead of the Lok Sabha elections. It would have been better had the government taken the decision earlier,” Kohli said.
Kohli lambasted the BJP government at the Center for its failure to create employment avenues for the youth of our country. He said BJP Government has almost completed its four and half years at the Centre and now when the elections are going to be held BJP started befooling people of the country by launching such type of reservations.
Gen Secretary Manish Sahni said the Modi government should issue a white paper that how many government jobs have been created during the last four and half years. Sahni reminded that Modi government had promised for two crore jobs per year but it has failed to create those due to lack of polices.
Kohli said that without jobs, the creation of reservation in employment may just prove to be one more Jumla. He said that Shiv Sena is the only party which is working for the welfare of people of the country. He urged upon the people of Jammu region to support Shiv Sena in the upcoming elections so that the issues being faced by the people since long could be resolved.
