BJP promoting horse trading, weakening democracy: Chib
JAMMU: Pradesh Youth Congress, today took out a `Loktantra Bachao March' to make people aware about the failure of BJP in fulfilling their promises made with the people of Jammu region.
Led by PYC president Uday Bhanu Chib, the activists assembled outside the BJP Headquarters Trikuta Nagar and raised slogans against BJP. The administration had already deployed police force there to foil their protest march towards BJP office.
Later, talking to reporters, Chib said BJP have ditched the mandate of Jammu region and surrendered the aspirations of people who voted whole heartedly for seeking justice and equality in the State. He said that BJP has befooling the people of J&K on the name of various issues including delimitation, abrogation of Article 370, etc. He said BJP has made wrong commitments with people for carrying out a delimitation exercise for Jammu region in the State Assembly. He asked BJP to fulfill its commitment by holding delimitation of Assembly constituencies before holding Assembly elections.
Chib said Modi and BJP need to be aware that the Coalition Government in Karnataka, which has "complete majority" is sought to be pulled down by a spate of defections and resignations. "The MLAs are being bought in broad day-light, democracy is being denigrated. The constitution is being trampled upon in Karnataka," he alleged.
"We depreciate the efforts of BJP to buy over legislators, to pressurise legislators into resigning in order to bring down an elected Government in Karnataka. Is this the culture of our democracy?" he asked.
PYC chief emphasized that Congress will not allow BJP such type of horse trading and always stand to save the democracy of our country.
Youth Congress leaders asked BJP leadership to clear its stand on all these important issues, which have great impact on the future of the State and the country.
