NC President Farooq Abdullah Takes a Dig At BJP
Srinagar, 13 August: Jammu and Kashmirâ€™s oldest political formation National Conference on Sunday claimed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) â€œis facing unprecedented public angst in the entire Jammu and Kashmir.
This was stated by NCâ€™s President Dr. Farooq Abdullah. In a press release, NC quoted Farooq Abdullah as having said that the BJP has â€œfailed to live up to its promises of providing employment to youth, handholding of artisans and much-awaited relief to the poor and downtrodden sections of society.â€
â€œBJP is shying away from elections as the clouds of worry have surrounded them. Amidst untamed inflation and unemployment, the withdrawal of food schemes only added to the daily woes of people.
How will BJP face people from whose plates it has snatched food? How can a government that has unleashed tax terrorism on people face them? Our bleeding middle class, BPL (Below Poverty Line) and other marginalized communities like Gujjars, and Paharis are particularly at the receiving end,â€ the statement said.
