In a brief meeting at the airport, Digvijaya Singh, as per Congress sources, said that Congress is the only alternative available to the people in J&K, and people have made up their minds to bring Congress back to power. He said that the BJP government failed on the J & K front, and the prevailing political and security scenario is an example of the “total failure” of the Central government and the previous BJP led government that left the erstwhile State in chaos and messed on all fronts.

He said that Congress is the only alternative available to the people in J&K, and people have made up their minds to bring back Congress to power. But, on the other hand, the people of Jammu have experienced that BJP has cheated them on different emotional slogans and false promises only to achieve power but back-tracked on all those issues to share power.

Asking the party rank and file to expose the misdeeds and failures of the BJP to educate the masses whose problems have been complicated besides disturbing the social and secular fabric of J&K, he said Congress alone can ensure justice to all sections and regions of the StateState and take along all sections of the society.

“Although Congress government in the larger interest of people ensured liberal funding for erstwhile State and approved several developmental projects, the present regime has virtually defeated all the schemes as most of the projects are moving at snail’s pace,” Digvijaya Singh said.

In a hint that Congress would make a comeback in state politics, the Congress leader said that he expects the era of development and prosperity to return to Jammu and Kashmir after Congress win in assembly elections. Recalling his contribution to the Congress govt, he said that backward, far-flung and hilly areas were brought onto the developmental landscape during its tenure for the first time.

He stated that Congress has a roadmap and vision for the development of StateState, ‘a roadmap which will lead to faster growth, generation of employment for the youth and empowerment and development of far-flung and remote areas like Pir Panjal and Chenab Valley.’ He assured that all the developmental projects started during Congress’s tenure would be completed in the shortest possible time if his party formed government in the State again. “We will restore the same spree of development and people-friendly governance that you witnessed earlier”.
