SRINAGAR MAY 06: National Conference State Vice President Rattan Lal Gupta on Saturday blamed PDP-BJP dispensation for indulging in exploitative politics, saying the actions of the coalition doesn’t match with their rhetoric.
“The coalition sold dreams to different segments of society and when it came to delivering they showed backs”, Mr Rattan Lal Gupta said while addressing Provincial functionaries of NC OBC Cell at Sher-e-Kashmir Bhavan here this afternoon, adding that the promises made by the coalition partners before and after 2014 elections have proved hoax.
Gupta said that the present coalition has betrayed the weaker sections and other backward classes, who had undergone a discernible transformation on socio-economic fronts during the National Conference government but no sooner the present dispensation took over their welfare has hugely been ignored.
Speaking on the occasion, the Co-Chairperson NC OBC Cell Mr Abdul Gani Teli decried opportunistic politics of the PDP-BJP combine and saying that no forward movement has been witnessed with regard to the enhancement in reservation of these segments of the society during the past two and half years.
He said that OBCs were socially and economically suffering but the callous government was playing dirty politics of dividing the people on communal and regional lines to divert the attention from the failures. He said no step has been taken for creating separate corpus for the welfare of the OBCs in the designated corporation and demanded dedicated funds for the purpose.
During the meeting speakers highlighted various problems confronted to the OBCs and cautioned the government not to test the patience of these communities who could take to streets in the wake of continued neglect of their legitimate interests.
Besides former legislator Deependra Kour and Provincial Vice President Anil Dhar, thos who attended the meeting included Abdul Jabbar, Daram Pal Kataria, Sain Dass and others. (PTK)
