Bhim Singh’s rejoinder to CM Mufti Coalition with BJP, a fraud with Jammu

Reacting strongly on the statement made by J&K Chief Minister on the so- called compulsion of coalition with BJP, Prof. Brim singh said that no one can bluff all the people all the times.

          NPP supremo questioned the Chief Minister as to what happened to the issue of ( 1)Delimitation of Assembly Constituencies which he had agreed in 2002 with NPP and Congress to hold if he becomes Chief Minister with that Coalition (Congress and NPP). (2) What happened to that Delimitation when his Govt opposed NPP petition in suprem Court. (3)What happened to the plight and Miseries of 15 lacs POK and PAK refuges when Mufti had signed CMP with congress and NP. (4) What happened to the AIIMS at Jammu which was declared by his Govt. (5) It is great that 21000 crores has been airmarked for Ladakh , what about Jammu Pardesh ?. (6) Kashmiry Migrants have been sanctioned 7 ½ Lacs for house for each family whereas Jammu Migrants have been starving and rotting in the jungles of Jammu forests. Those camping in Talwara have been denied electricity and drinking water. Suprem Court judgment to provide Jammu Migrants relief at par with Kashmiry Migrants has been dumped in to the Kashmiry dustbin. (7) What about the comprehensive settlement of POK, PAK Refuges?. (8) Tourism for Kashmir only in Pahalgaon and Gulmarg, The places which were selected by Maharaja Hari Singh and developed. What about Sanasar , Kishtiwar, Bhadarwah, Poonch, Panchari , Bani, Basantgarh, Sudhmahadev , Noore Chhumb and other places in Jammu Pardesh which had heavily voted for BJP.
