BJP MLAs boycott CAPD Minister's meeting
Jammu, Oct 29: BJP MLAs in Jammu today boycotted the meeting called by state Minister for Consumer Affairs and Public Distribution on LPG cylinder crisis, terming it as an "eye wash".
BJP MLAs -- Ashok Khajuria, Jugal Kishore Sharma, Shyam Choudhary and Sukhnandan Kumar -- did not attend the meeting convened by minister Qamar Ali Akhoon, calling it a "futile exercise".
"It has become customary with the present NC-Congress coalition government to convene meetings, seek suggestions for improvement in functioning of its departments, claiming to provide a people friendly dispensation. But, in reality, it is only an eye wash," Ashok Khajuria said.
They said in the past also such meeting was held and despite valuable and result oriented suggestions not even a single of them was practically adopted.
"We do not see any logic of attending the meeting and forwarding suggestions if they are not implemented," MLA Jugal Kishore Sharma said.
MLAs said the recent decision on bringing down the number of subsidized gas cylinders to six had created problems for the people.
The MLAs alleged that the department is fully aware of the sale of LPG cylinders in black, but it has not taken any effective step to check the same.
