Alliance with PDP is for development: Ram Lal
Jammu, May 09: Addressing Training Workshop session of party MLAs and MLCs at Katra, BJP National General Secretary (Org.) Ram Lal said that we have entered into alliance with PDP in Jammu and Kashmir for development and welfare of the people and the state.
Ram Lal, who inaugurated this training workshop at Katra along with Deputy Chief Minister Dr. Nirmal Singh, State General Secretary (Org.) Ashok Kaul, Ministers including Chander Prakash Ganga, Sunil Sharma, Priya Sethi, MLC Ashok Khajuria, State Secretary Munish Sharma and other elected representatives, said that the people across the country had displayed their strong urge to give governance of the country to BJP by casting highest percentage of votes in its favour. Later, in J&K, the same desire was repeated when people from all the three regions polled maximum votes in our favour, said Ram Lal and added that although we could not win seats in Kashmir and Ladakh but the polling trend was in our favour.
Ram Lal said that winning 25 seats in Jammu Province was the mandate to form the government and we went into alliance with PDP to honour the will of the people. We are not power hungry but this alliance has been established for development, he said.
Ram Lal expressed hope that the elected representatives will justify the mandate of the people by mitigating their problems and sufferings.
Deputy Chief Minister Dr. Nirmal Singh, said that ours is neither ideological nor political alliance with PDP but it is an alliance for good governance and development. The coalition government is running on the agenda of alliance and we all are working in unison for achieving this goal enshrined in the CMP. He said that the people of the state had suffered a lot on account of the wrong policies, misgovernance and corruption of the previous NC and Congress governments and they taught these parties lesson by rejecting them in the elections. He said that the coalition government is committed for equal treatment to all the three regions and wipe out tears of the suffering people by working for their welfare, upliftment, and ending corruption and mis-governance.
State General Secretary (Org.) briefed about the progress made so far and the future course of action related to Maha Sampark Abhiyaan at District and Booth levels to be undertaken in the month of May.
