BJP govt has miserably failed to safeguard lives of border residents: Monga
While blaming the BJP government’s failed policies as reason for increase in ceasefire violations along the LoC and international border, Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) vice president and former MLC G N Monga today said that the government has miserably failed to safeguard the lives of border residents.
In a statement issued to press from here, he said, “The increase in ceasefire violations is the outcome of the weak and flawed policies of the Central government. Innocent lives are lost almost every day on the border but the BJP government is least bothered.”
“Even the government has failed to construct underground bunkers for the border residents which could have saved them from the shelling. The continuous shelling and firing on the border has resulted in killings, destruction of property, closure of educational institutions and immense hardships to poor people,” Monga rued.
The Congress leader said that the Center Government has no roadmap whatsoever to deal with this recurring problem. “It is high time that the BJP leadership instead of making tall claims, come to the rescue of the thousands of border dwellers whose life has become hell in the last nearly four years of BJP rule.”
While expressing sympathies with the families of the civilians who were killed in Uri and other areas today, Monga urged the administration to provide all possible help to the injured. “Also the government must provide compensation to the families of the deceased and those whose properties have been damaged,” he demanded.(KNS)
