Blaming National Conference-led coalition government for 'cooking gas' crisis in Jammu, Shri Ram Sena has expressed a serious concern over the issue, maintaining that the shortage of cooking gas cylinders has almost affected every household in the winter capital of the state.
SHRI RAM sena president Rajiv Mahajan stated that Congress ruled states in the country have maintained the cap on subsidized gas cylinders at 9 each family per year, but in Jammu and Kashmir state the government has not raised the cap to 9 cylinders.
Mahajan questioned the legality of Congress’ partnership in the state coalition government. “Is J&K government not a Congress backed government? If J&K state is a Congress backed government, than what is the role of Congress in the government and why the quota of subsidized LPG gas cylinders has not been increased to 9 each family per year, as has been done in other Congress ruled states in the country,” questioned Mahajan, as quoted in a press release.
Mahajan observed that role of Congress ministers and legislators in state coalition government is 'null and void'. He said the Congress MLAs and MLCs have no say in the state government, so they do not deserve to remain as coalition partners in the state NC-led government. Mahajan demanded the Congress legislators should resign on moral grounds on account of their position in the state government.
