Jammu: National Conference Provincial President Devender Singh Rana on Sunday described arrangement with the Congress for the ensuing Lok Sabha elections as a well thought out strategy to unitedly fight the divisive forces in the larger national interest.
“This arrangement is confined to Lok Sabha elections only as the nation is confronted with a huge challenge posed by those believing in divisive and hate politics”, Rana said while welcoming youth into the party fold here this morning.
He said the country was passing through a difficult phase and it is incumbent upon the compatriots to save it from the elements inimical to its secular fabric and hell bent upon dividing the society on the basis of religion, race and caste. This is an unprecedented scenario, totally against the very idea of India, which assimilates diverse religions, castes, languages and races, he said, hoping that the people will see through the game-plan of polarizing the society for garnering votes.
“For defeating the dangerous narrative of hate and intolerance, all those believing in India’s diversity will have to come together and save democratic spirit of the country,” Rana said adding that youth have to play a definite and decisive role in this regard. He urged the youth to become the catalyst of change by actively associating themselves in the process of isolating reactionary forces. He said the exploitative politics has impeded development and throttled the openings in jobs for the youth. The BJP’s promise of two crore jobs annually has not only emerged as a big hoax but also an insult to the youth who have been taken for a ride. The countrywide growing unemployment is reflective of the level of governance the nation has witnessed during the past five years, he said and sought a change in the scenario to have a responsive, accountable and effective government, which believes in deliverance rather than false slogans.
