Jammu, September 21:- Congress has lashed out at the Centre and state for their failure to honor the announcement to include the capital cities of State –Jammu and Srinagar in the smart cities, even in the third round declared yesterday.
Reacting to the development, JKPCC Chief spokesman Ravinder Sharma termed it a cruel joke with the people of the State and Centre Govt. have tried to befool the people of the State, by their false promises and announcements in this regard in the past, which have come out to be ‘Jumlas’ of the Modi Govt. It is Crystal clear from the fact that the DPR (Detail Project Report) has not yet been submitted by the State Govt., under the concerned ministry also headed by the Dy. CM belonging to BJP.
He strongly criticized the PDP-BJP in the State and the Modi led BJP Govt. at the centre for false and fake promises, which have practically remained hallow slogans and the people feel betrayed and both BJP and PDP are answerable to the people for their utter failure and deception on this account and various other fronts.
Meanwhile, the PCC has strongly criticized the State Govt. for its failure to recognize and honor the supreme sacrifices of Army soldiers, who were martyred for the nation, as the Govt. failed to announce any ex-gratia for their families. This showed the insensitivity of the Govt. towards the sacrifices of Jawans, who martyred in this State in Uri especially those belonging to this State and laid down their lives for the sake of Nation.
