Nowshera: Ongoing election campaign by prominent leader of PoK Displaced Persons, Rajiv Chuni, who is contesting as independent candidate in the Lok Sabha polls from Jammu -Poonch Parliamentary seat, entered Sunderbani & Nowshera in Rajouri where he addressed a series of public meetings and road shows.

Rajiv Chuni, along with his supporters, visited Sunderbani, Rah Siot, Banpuri, Bajabain, Seri, Nowshera and other areas of Rajouri where he was accorded rousing welcome by the PoK Displaced community, settled there. Members of the Displaced families extended their full support to Rajiv Chuni, who, they said, has done a lot for the community.  They opined that Rajiv Chnuni has been serving the Displaced community for the last three decades while on the other hand, other candidates have only assurances and hollow promises.

While addressing the road shows and public meetings, Rajiv Chuni lambasted all the   mainstream political parties, including BJP and Congress for their Kashmir centric approach.  He alleged that BJP as well as Congress have their mass base and support in Jammu but both the parties always toed the Kashmir centric line after coming to power.

These two parties, BJP and Congress, are biggest exploiters of Jammu, which never remained on their agenda despite the fact that both the parties had been getting vote and support from this region,” he said and added that Congress befooled Jammu on the name of secularism while BJP exploited Jammu sentiments on the name of Hindus.

“BJP’s slogan of `Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas’ was  a farce and it has been established know that this party is taking `Sabka Saath’ from Jammu but doing `Vikas’ of only Kashmiris, who are being extended all facilities,” Rajiv Chuni alleged.

Launching a scathing attack on candidates of both BJP and Congress, Rajiv Chuni said that Jugal Kishore has a tainted Police record while Raman Bhalla as then Minister for Revenue, had intentionally delayed the Cabinet proposal on Rehabilitation Package for the PoK Displaced Persons, which was ultimately okayed by his successor Aijaz Khan in 2014.

Rajiv Chuni exhorted the PoK Displaced Persons to reject these mainstream political parties, which have always ditched the community and did nothing for their permanent rehabilitation. “Your each vote to my candidature will give strength to the unity of Displaced community and teach a lesson to both BJP and Congress,” he added.
