Jammu, Aug 27: Provincial President National Conference (NC) Jammu Rattan Lal Gupta today said that the present dispensation has miserably failed to protect the rights of Other Backward Classes (OBCs).
According to a press release, he was addressing a day-long convention of party’s OBC cell at Sher-e-Kashmir Bhavan Jammu. Gupta alleged that the members of this backward community are living under depressed pitiable conditions in Jammu and Kashmir.
At the outset of the meeting, NC leader Abdul Gani Teli asserted that there is no one in the administration to look into the burning issues of downtrodden including OBCs and moreover they are being treated quite shabbily under the present regime. Addressing party workers, Rattan Lal Gupta termed the issues and demands raised by Abdul Ghani Teli as genuine and justified to uplift the socio-economic status of the community. He came down heavily on the BJP government at the centre stating that it has brought nothing but miseries for the people of Jammu and Kashmir especially the OBC community.
Ajay Sadhotra former minister and central secretary in his address, stated that BJP has befooled the people with its hollow promises before the elections and now the people of Jammu and Kashmir have today realize that they have been totally betrayed by the saffron party. He said that the people across the state are being made to suffer in absence of a representative government for no fault of theirs. He asserted that the government has virtually broken the spine of common people due to its anti-people policies the results of which are easily visible to everyone.
Babu Rampal former minister and Central Zone President expressed great disappointment against the J&K administration for pursing anti-poor policies, stating that it has callously ignored the interests of Other Backward Class population. He stated that it is only National Conference which can ensure justice to all the communities including the OBCs but for this the people will have to repose trust and confidence in the party and its leadership that will steer them out of the present morass.
