JKPCC chief G A Mir has said that the people of J&K will teach BJP a lesson like recent by-elections in Himachal Pradesh, as the ruling party committed great atrocities upon the ordinary people and all sections of society are great sufferers due to the policies of BJP Government.
Addressing a largely attended public rally at Nagrota, Mir said that BJP has let loose a reign of terror from tax terrorism to all sorts of other anti-poor, anti-farmers, anti-youth and anti-trade policies besides looting the local resources after the arbitrary disbanding and downgrading of historic the Dogra State of J&K and offering jobs to outsiders at the cost of significant scale unemployment in J&K. Mir said that BJP is looting the people and skinning the common person through tax terrorism on all items of everyday use including petrol, diesel and LPG.
He said that the single stroke of people in HP in recent by-elections forced the Modi Government to scrap down the prices of petrol and diesel, so the people have learnt how to force Modi Government to change its anti-people policies, and they will repeat the same here in future.
He said the farmers have been agitating for 11 months, unemployment is at its highest peak, especially in J&K, the economy is at the lowest ebb, and every section of the society is suffering due to wrong policies of BJP and Modi Government people of Jammu have got only toll plazas, privatization of power and offering of local resources and jobs to outsiders, he added.
He asked the people to teach BJP a lesson for their politics of deceit and hate, and lust for power. The rally organized by senior Congress leader Shiv Dev Singh was part of nationwide Jan Jagran Abhiyan of the Party, which was addressed among others by former Minister and vice president Mula Ram, Raman Bhalla, chief spokesperson Ravinder Sharma, treasurer Rajnish Sharma, Ex-MP T S Bajwa, DCC president Jammu Rural Hari Singh Chib and PYC president Uday Bhanu Chib.
Mula Ram lashed out at the BJP Government for the atrocities of all sorts on the people during the last seven years and downgrading the Dogra State, while Raman Bhalla said that the Congress would fight for the early restoration of the statehood to J&K before holding elections.
Addressing the gathering, Shiv Dev Singh said that the people of J&K are fed up with BJP’s jumla politics, significant scale unemployment and record price rise under the Modi regime. He said that the people of the Nagrota constituency want a change in the future and will teach BJP a lesson.
Ravinder Sharma also highlighted the all-around failures and anti-people policies of the BJP Government during seven years of its rule while T S Bajwa, in his address, asked people to bring Congress back to power for the welfare of each section.

However, for several days before the show, the channel ran a rap account promo of Jeevan. J&K is proud to have Jeevan on this big show. Senior police officers are calling and congratulating Jeevan.

Over 300 docs, paramedics test positive in Jammu district
Over 300 doctors and the members of paramedical staff of the Health Department, who comprised the COVID-19 sampling teams in different locations in the Jammu district, have contracted the infection.
Officials said that even as the sampling had been intensified with the deployment of over 53 teams by the Health and Medical Education Department across the district, many of the team members who were involved in collecting samples of the suspected COVID patients from different places, also tested positive.
“Over 300 doctors and paramedical staff members of the health department were found infected with the virus,” said a senior official.
“We are deploying doctors and other medical staff in shifts. After seven days of isolation and medical care, the doctors and other members of the staff are joining duties. After they resume, others infected with the virus proceed on leave for seven days,” he added.
“Somehow, we are managing the sampling which is undergoing in an aggressive manner across Jammu district. We have also deployed six teams for thermal screening of the people at the venue of the main Republic Day function,” the official said.
These teams will remain deployed there till January 29. Besides, the official said, “We have deployed 19 teams at Jammu Airport and 24 teams at Railway Station to sample people on their arrival.” “Around 100-150 samples are collected from Jammu airport and 800 from Jammu railway station as a routine exercise,” the official added.
Meanwhile, Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Jammu J P Singh, while speaking to the media, expressed concern over, what he said, “casual approach of the people towards the deadly virus.”
“Despite instructions, they were not reporting to the Chest Disease Hospital at Bakshi Nagar and DRDO Jammu for triage-test,” he said.
“The people with severe illness (comorbidity) and aged having symptoms of COVID19 should come to CD Hospital Bakshi Nagar and DRDO Hospital at Bhagwati Nagar for their medical check-up instead of getting treatment in home isolation,” he said.
He said that the aged and people with comorbidity should approach these hospitals soon after they developed symptoms or they contracted infection so that timely medical care could be provided to them. Another official informed that around 109 infected people were admitted to MCH, DRDO Jammu and GMC Jammu’s COVID care ward. “We have a capacity to admit around 817 infected people in these hospitals and accordingly, the capacity would be increased,” the official said asserting that the majority of the infected people were in home isolation, unlike last year.
Pertinently, the Jammu district has around 59 micro-containment zones while 15 locations were de-notified after the recovery of the infected people.
