STATE TIMES NEWS
VIJAYPUR: Criticising Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) led NDA Government, contesting candidate of Congress Party from Vijaypur Assembly seat Manjit Singh on Sunday said that Modi Government deliberately delayed the compensation package by sending it back to State Government.
In a statement, Singh strongly reacted to the alleged negligence and misleading of displaced persons.
“The BJP Government has been exposed with the rejection of package even as it was cleared by the State Cabinet and sent to GoI,” the Congress candidate said, while criticising that the party has befooled the displaced persons.
He said “This relief package was meant for the State subject people who were in trouble for the last six decades but the Union Government ‘deliberately’ delayed the process by resending the same,” he added.
Senior Congress leader said that the State Government following pressure from the Congress Ministers had given its nod in support of the displaced persons but it was unfortunately neglected for alleged political gains.
He further said that the people have understood with this move of BJP that it did not want to resolve the concern of the displaced people instead it want to do politics with these people.
“They (DPs) have faced problems from decades. They had a hope with the compensation package but it too was delayed for mere political motives which would not be fulfilled under such tactics,” he added.
He maintained that the people should teach a lesson to such ‘anti- refugee and displaced persons’ policies of the BJP.
Earlier, he continued his election campaign in his constituency where he held series of public meetings and apprised people about the programmes and policies of the Congress Party.
He also highlighted the developmental works and schemes that were taken up by the UPA Government.
