The press release also said that Singh challenged BJP to explain its power sharing with the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) in Kargil Hill Development Council before raising questions to the congress party which has history of sacrifices for the ‘unity and integrity of the nation’. He said BJP has been exposed for its double standard sharing power with PDP and NC in the Kargil Hill Council contrary to its public posturing against patriotic credentials of two of its alliance partners in the Hill Council with an attempt to exploit the sentiments of the people. He also reminded the BJP who shared power with PDP for over three years in Jammu and Kashmir but not fulfilled a single promise made to the people of Jammu.
Balwan Singh criticized BJP for its failure on deliverance front and mitigating the problems of peole. He expressed dissatisfaction over steps taken by the administration in combating price rise or making utility services functional to the satisfaction of people. The health and hygiene has become a big causality due to administrative apathy.
