National Conference (NC) leader Devender Singh Rana today accused the BJP of resorting to making false promises and indulging in rhetoric with an eye on next year's Lok Sabha polls.

He also claimed the saffron party was not taking care of Jammu region's interests.  

“With 2019 (parliamentary) elections coming closer, the BJP flock has begun hovering around the politically sagacious people of Jammu with false promises and dreams,” Rana, who is NC's provincial president, alleged at a party function here.

He claimed the BJP had already generated discontentment among youth and was "fully exposed" for playing with the sentiments of Jammu people. 

“The BJP had been hammering discrimination and invoking Jammu pride for six decades of its wilderness in the opposition but once getting into the cradle of power in partnership with equally opportunistic PDP, it has left the people in lurch and pushed the youth to deprivation,” Rana alleged. 

He claimed the BJP had lost the moral right of claiming to be the champions of the Jammu cause. He said the people of Jammu are feeling let down as the entire system of governance has gone “haywire”.

"Soaring prices are breaking the backbone of poor, utility services are in a shambles, grievance mechanism is in complete disarray and all sectors of development are suffering inertia. Same is true about implementation of welfare schemes,” he alleged.

To divert the attention from its alleged failures, the BJP has again embarked on "hoodwinking" people by shifting blame to other parties, he alleged.
