To express solidarity with these technocrats, BJP State President Shamsher Singh Manhas accompanied by National Executive Member & Chief Spokesperson Dr. Jitendra Singh, State Press Secretary Balbir Ram, Distt. Vice-President Sanjay Baru and BJYM National Executive Member Aseem Gupta went to the site of dharna and assured party’s commitment to support their legitimate protest till it reaches logical conclusion.
Shamsher Singh Manhas, while interacting with the technocrats said that the Omar Abdullah government has proved total failure and the resentment against the coalition can be well judged from the fact that the
National Executive Member & Chief Spokesperson Dr. Jitendra Singh said that it has become a habit with National Conference-Congress coalition government to make public commitment to the agitating employees and unemployed youth from time to time to defuse their agitation and then later to back out from the commitment. This is unbecoming of the propriety and the oath of constitution under which the chief minister and his minister are supposed to perform their duties.
Rehbar-e-Zirat President Surinder Radotra, while briefing the BJP President about the sequence of events during the last one year, said that they were all on dharna in 2011 when the assembly session was on in Jammu and the government had given a categorical assurance that the demand of agitating technocrats will be fulfilled soon but till date nothing has been done as a result of which we are forced to take extreme step of sitting on fast unto death.
