RAMNAGAR: Expressing dismay over announcement of the ECI to hold Parliamentary elections only in J&K, excluding Assembly polls on the pretext of security constraints, JKNPP Chairman and former Minister, Harsh Dev Singh on Monday said that the decision was self contradictory and shocking. If the security scenario was conducive for Parliamentary polls, how did it become non-conductive for Assembly elections, questioned Harsh Dev adding that vested political interests were coming in the way of restoration of democratic institutions in the State. 
Harsh was addressing a public meeting in Prey, Badhal villages of Ramnagar constituency today.
Harsh said that despite political parties in the State having favoured early elections to J&K Legislative Assembly, the ruling party at the Centre and MHA posed hindrances by citing security reasons and thereby caused postponement of aforesaid elections, merely for political expediencies. 
He said that having failed to deliver during its three and a half years rule in the State, and antagonised its own electorates as well, the BJP had manoeuvred postponement of Assembly elections and thereby conceded its defeat much before such elections. Scared to face people in wake of its multiple betrayals with Jammu cause, it preferred extension of President’s rule and continuation of its proxy rule in the State, said Singh. 
Accusing the BJP of having failed on all fronts, Singh said that people were eagerly awaiting to give the party a befitting reply for all its acts of betrayal and subterfuge. “Where as BJP and its cheer leaders continued to give tall slogans of development and growth, the delivery on ground-level was conspicuously missing. BJP rule pushed entire Jammu region to terminal decline, the rural areas suffered most in terms of development. With hardly any schemes having been announced for rural areas, the already existing and ongoing schemes faced the worst neglect during the saffron rule,” alleged Harsh.
He said that a party which had failed to fulfill even a single election promise had no moral authority to approach people for votes. 
He said that such wicked politicking on the part of BJP had defeated democracy in the State and would be remembered as a dark phase in the history of state.
Others who spoke on the occasion included Rampaul Bhagat, Pawan Dev, Shiv Ram, Pushpinder Singh, Mohan Lal, Ram Dass and Sher Ali.
