In the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, the Panthers Party demonstrated outside the state BJP headquarters regarding the problem of electricity and water. The workers, led by party chairman Harshdev Singh, raised slogans against the BJP by waving banners. The workers shouted slogans like the party that destroyed Jammu.

Harshdev Singh alleged that the BJP ruled through bureaucrats for three-and-a-half years and ran the government with the PDP three years ago but did not solve people’s problems. The BJP ignored the Jammu region while running the government with the PDP. As there is a Lieutenant Governor’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir, there is a severe shortage of electricity and water. It was promised that there would be a round-the-clock power supply, but there are huge cuts. The water supply is affected due to power failure.

People are upset, but they are not listening. We are Dogras of Jammu, we should be respected. No one can take away our rights. The government should ensure a smooth supply of electricity and water without delay. The protesters included Rajesh Padgotra, Purushottam Parihar, Surendra Chauhan, Dharam Singh Bittu, Karnail Singh, Sukhjit Singh, Ravindra Singh, Khajur Singh, Rampal Sharma, Rachpal Singh, Gurjit Singh, Vijay Singh, Satpal Singh and others.
