JAMMU: Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party on Sunday said it will extend full support to one-day Jammu Bandh call given by AIIMS coordination committee in protest against shifting of the proposed hospital to Kashmir region.
“We appeal to everyone in Jammu to make the one-day Jammu bandh a complete success so as to send a message to the people in the corridors of power that injustice with the Jammu region will not be tolerated,” JKNPP Chairman Harsh Dev Singh said while addressing working committee meeting of the party.
Singh accused the State and the Central Governments of ignoring the aspirations of the people of Jammu region.
“We will continue our struggle till the shabby treatment with the people of Jammu region does not end, be it the issue of shifting of AIIMS, the shelving of the artificial lake project and the new recruitment policy, we will continue our struggle,” Singh said.
He said his party would hold agitations in every district headquarters of Jammu region so as to send a signal to the government that the people of Jammu won’t tolerate injustice.
“The shifting of AIIMS from Jammu to Kashmir is an example of the discrimination with the people of Jammu and has also exposed the hollow promises of BJP which once claimed to be the sole representative of the people of Jammu,” Singh said.
Launching a scathing attack on the Saffron party, State President JKNPP Balwant Singh Mankotia wondered on the keen interest taken by the Dy. CM Nirmal Singh for underscoring the need for making a new Master Plan for Srinagar to convert it into a Smart City during a seminar organized by Srinagar Development Authority when his own Jammu city is burning with outrage with the infrastructural projects like flyovers amid the alarming traffic congestion, restoration of Mubarak Mandi Complex, Mubarak Mandi-Bagh-e-Bahu Cable Car Project etc are gathering dust and seen nowhere.
Political Advisor NPP, Bansi, Rajesh Padgotra, Shyam Gorkha, Ashok Randhawa, Anita Thakur, Jagdev Singh, Ashfaq Rana, Gagan Pratap Singh, Pushvinder Singh Manhas, Pawan Dev Singh, Vilakshan Singh, Ravinder Billowria, Pushpinder Singh, Neeraj Gupta, Balbir Singh, Anil Rakwal, Kesar Parveen, Vishav Dev Singh and Parshottam Parihar were also present in the meeting.
The AIIMS Coordination Committee, an amalgam of more than 70 religious, social and political organisations, has called for a day-long Jammu Bandh on May 27 to protest the shifting of AIIMS from Jammu region to Kashmir.
The Bandh coincides with the proposed visit of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to Jammu and Kashmir.
