Unemployment, inflation all-time high in Country : Ex Dy CM Tara Chand

Srinagar August 25 (KNS): The meeting of the workers of Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee was held today under the chairmanship of former Deputy Chief Minister Shri Tarachand ji, in which many problems of Chhamb Khour assembly constituency were discussed.

While addressing the meeting of Party worker's at their residence, he said Unemployment and inflation are all time high in India which has pushed people to the verge of starvation where poor are attempting suicides.

Many burning issues were discussed during the day-long meeting by the Congress workers and unanimously passed a resolution for restoration of statehood to Jammu and Kashmir. 

While addressing the workers Former Dy CM Tara Chand urged upon the Central government to restore statehood to Jammu and Kashmir with job and land security for the locals. He said that J&K has witnessed massive destruction during decade’s long turmoil and rising unemployment is a major concern. He urged upon the government to secure jobs of Jammu and Kashmir for local youth.

Former Dy CM Tarachand referred to the massive hike in the price of petrol and diesel which is highest in Last so many Years. He said that Modi Govt has earned more than 23 lakh crores in seven years out of tax on petrol and diesel.
He said the crude oil in the international market is at 60 USD per barrel while the rates of fuel are highest while during Dr. Manmohan Singh Government it was 110 USD per barrel but rates were lower than today. seeking roll back of the price hike, he said the Modi government is charging high excise duty which is 258 percent higher to UPA in petrol and 820 percent higher in Diesel, which is totally unreasonable.

Former Dy CM Sh Tarachand said that the youth are fed-up with the emotional slogans. They want employment and good education. For a good future in J&K, the elected Government must be in place. He said that the people have a sense of alienation in J&k and it is high time for the Govt to take a decision for the welfare of the people of J&K as a whole who have always stood like rock for national interest.

Asking BJP to shun rhetoric and stop playing to the galleries, Sh Tarachand wondered what Jammu got during the past seven years. A lot of hue and cry is being raised over non-issues without speaking a word about the real issues that have caused immense concern and apprehensions among permanent residents here, particularly with regard to their identity, jobs and lands.

Former Dy CM Sh Tarachand has urged the Govt. to consider the long pending demands including regularization and regular wages of agitating daily wagers, need based, CP workers and other such categories of workers in PHE, Irrigation, Flood Control and other Departments. They are  working in different departments since decades, government should ensure that they are able to avail services benefits and live a dignified life, he added.

Speaking on the occasion, Sh Tarachand exhorted the party worker's  to remain steadfast in their resolve of serving people and strengthening bonds of inclusiveness.

He complimented the people in general and the party cadre in particular for their commitment to the secular ethos and hoped that this glorious tradition will continue to inspire the generations.
