DARBAR MOVE: Congress braces up for massive protests on opening day

Opposition Congress Party has decided to hold sit-ins and protests   to corner state government over   range of public issues on the opening day of durbar in the winter capital on November 7.

The party would hold sit-ins and court arrest over the "neglect" of farmers, refugees, border residents, ex-servicemen, flood and rain affected families, shortage of ration and closure of schools among other issues, a party spokesperson said on Saturday. 

He said the decision was taken at  meeting of the Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) leadership held here at party's headquarter at Shaheedi Chowk under the leadership of PCC Chief GA Mir.

 The strategies were devised to "corner" and "expose" PDP-BJP dispensation for its alleged failure on various fronts.

Chief Spokesperson of PCC-Ravinder Sharma,   said that senior leadership and senior functionaries of the party would take out a protest march from Congress headquarter Jammu towards Civil Secretariat and court arrest in protest against the total failure of the coalition government to fulfill the election promises made to the different sections of the                               society.

In the meeting, Sharma said the senior PCC leadership and workers chalked out a plan as how to expose the PDP-BJP combine for the worrisome situation all along the border and LoC, sky-rocketing prices of essential commodities, failure to fulfill the promises of border residents, refugees, neglect of farmers, rising unemployment, shortage of ration especially kerosene oil, neglect of ex-servicemen and martyrs, closure of schools, employees' issues, nepotism and favouritism, irrational transfers, corruption and rise in militancy in the state.

"The senior leaders of the party, led by PCC chief GA Mir and other senior functionaries would lead a march and offer for arrest to draw attention of the public towards the surrender of BJP to PDP on various issues for the lust of power", he said. 

The meeting was attended by Sham Lal Sharma, Rigzin Zora-CLP leader, Jahangir Mir-Deputy Chairman of the Legislative Council, Mula Ram, Raman Bhalla, Ravinder Sharma, Yogesh Sawhney, Shah Muhammad Choudhary, S Manjit Singh, Vikram Malhotra, Thakur Manmohan singh, Shah Nawaj Choudhary, Faqir Nath, Indu Pawar and other party leaders.
