PM Modi fails to deliver at Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine conclave in Katra

“It was all anti-climax at the end of PM Modi’s speech at the Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine University conclave this afternoon as Prime Minister Modi failed to mention a word about the PHE daily wagers numbering about 30,000, failed to address the sufferings and miserable plight of the hills of Mata Vaishno Devi now called as ‘baridars’ and have been literally turned as beggars in their own land. These baridars and their ancestors have been looking after the shrine for centuries without any benefit or gain.

          Several hundred Katra activists including their panches and sarpanches of Katra areas surrounding the university have been kept away under the threats of handcuffs by the police who have been protesting peacefully for their causes.”

          This was the reaction of Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party from New Delhi camp office about PM Modi’s visit to Katra and his conquest of the peasantry and the Vaishno Devi owners who have been suffering for decades and demanding justice and equity.

          Prof.Bhim Singh wanted to know from Prime Minister Modi why he failed to mention the plight of the people who have been suffering at the hands of his half-a-partner with PDP in the state. Prime Minister could not mention a word about the suffering daily wagers in PHE, he could not mention a word about the miserable situation the masters of Vaishno Devi Shrine have been facing since their humiliating ouster. Prime Minister also could not address the open meeting and had to direct the security forces to prepare a security covered up hall in the Katra University  ground costing more than, as estimated, Rs.20 crores.

          Prof.Bhim Singh wanted to know from Modi about the plight of the labourers working on different projects for the shrine and for the service condition of the Shrine Board employees. He wanted to know the benefit of the latest hospital to the Katra division and the poor people. He also expressed surprise that Prime Minister could not open the Stadium by travelling about 500 meters ahead from the Shrine Board camp. He said that Prime Minister pressed the switch to open to perform the inauguration of the stadium. Was it due to the security risk?

          Prof.Bhim Singh expressed surprise that Prime Minister of India could not say a word to appeal the students of Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University in Rajouri which was closed a few days back because of students unrest. The Prime Minister failed to say a word giving call to the students and youth in the Valley who have been staging demonstration against the state. Prof.Bhim Singh wondered whether Prime Minister Modi had any faint idea about the situation that has developed in different areas of J&K?

          Prof.Bhim Singh hoped that Prime Minister shall call an open meeting of the representative of all the recognized political parties in J&K including the representatives of the national parties functioning in J&K so that justice is done to all residents of J&K from all three regions. He said that Article 370 is a stumbling block in the way of integration of J&K with the rest of the country. He wondered why Prime Minister Modi is silent on this subject?
