Asha Kumari lambasted BJP gov't

Kangra, Sep 22 (UNI) Congress Working Committee member, Punjab party in charge and MLA from Dalhousie Asha Kumari on Sunday lambasted BJP government for its alleged anti - government employee policies and backing out from the poll promises extended to the people during the last assembly polls.

Asha Kumari was addressing party workers at Rait when she was on way to Delhi on Sunday. She alleged that as the BJP government has failed to have a policy for the out sourced employees so much so even BJP had promised for regularising the old pension scheme for employees but has backed out from this poll promise now, which she described as unfortunate.

She was critical of the government of scarping jobs of water guards appointed in Panchayats by the previous Congress government. She criticized the government for closing down the Administrative Tribunal thus depriving government employees and pensioners of getting facilities of justice at their doorsteps at Dharamshala, Mandi and Shimla. She alleged that this was indicating the anti employee mindset of the BJP government.

She said that Virbhdra singh Govt. made Dharamshala a second capital of the state with different offices opened there even the assembly building was constructed at Tapovan but now BJP government was shifting important offices from Dharamshala which she said was deplorable.

She alleged that BJP was running the government on loans on one hand and was wasting government exchequer on holding the Jan manch on other hand without benefit to common people. She said that those qualified laboratory technicians who were running their laboratories in private sector have been asked to keep a MBBS doctor on the laboratories thus pushing these youths to a dock who were managing their livelihood independently.

She alleged that government was playing at the hands of big business houses. She was critical of Prime Minister Narinder Modi for his failure to provide double engine support to the HP government, as promised during the polls thus putting government and people of the state to a dock.

On this occasion among others present were HP congress Committee General secretary Kewal Singh Pathania.
