Seeking public support for the party's 'Fight for Jammu mission', NPP State President, Balwant Singh Mankotia today announced that the party will hold a 'Jail Bharo Andolan' in the state from July 27 against the government's failure to announce AIIMS for Jammu region.
Hitting out at the BJP for 'backtracking' on the commitment of announcing the premier health institute in Jammu, Mankotia claimed that the party has lost ground in its core constituency "by despicably playing with the mandate and aspirations of the people of Jammu".
He said the NPP will intensify the protests for the restoration of AIIMS to Jammu region "and expose the BJP's obnoxious politics of duplicity, deceit and betrayal by kickstarting the 'Jail Bharo Andolan' at every district headquarters from 27th of July".
"NPP activists will court arrest on July 27 in Reasi followed by Jammu on 28th July, Kathua on 29th July, Ramban on 31st July, Udhampur on1st August, Samba on 2nd August, Poonch on 4th August and Doda on 6th August 2015 as per the calendar issued by the party", he said.
Mankotia asserted that Panthers Party will not relent unless a full-fledged AIIMS is established in the Jammu region and cautioned BJP that anything less than that would further aggravate the civil unrest "which would decimate and rout the Saffron Party from its grass roots once and for all".
