Jammu : Karanti Dal today holds protest demonstration against finance minister in coalition government at Kachi Chawani, demanding immediate removal of Tariq Hamid Karra from the state cabinet as he is speaking the language of militants.
Protesters led by Pritam Sharma City President Kranti Dal torched the effigy of Finance Minister Tariq Hameed Karra for his anti national utterances at the release function of Jammu and Kashmir Bank’s Calendar for year 2008.
“Karra had said that the Jammu and Kashmir Bank is functioning as per the manifesto of PDP and after the next elections when PDP will come into the power it will replace the Indian currency by its own currency and impose the self rule in the state of Jammu and Kashmir” protesters allege demanding the immediate removal of the Karra from the state cabinet as he is speaking the language of militants.
They cautioned the Chief Minister of the state Ghulam Nabi Azad regarding Anti Nation propaganda of his finance minister and said it will adversely affect the Congress party also in the forth coming Assembly elections as the PDP is its collation partner. “Such an anti national element should be ousted from the cabinet with immediate effect” they demanded.
The Kranti Dal leaders also alleged that the Karra is one of the most corrupt ministers of the state. “He has taken the state Financial Corporation to the extent of extinction and he is looting the excise and taxation departments by his both hands” they said adding, 12 luxurious Vehicles of the department are at the disposal of his nears and dears.
“The fuel expenses of these vehicles are being paid by the excise and taxation department to M/s Dayawanti Petrol pump, thus creating a recurring loss of lakhs of rupees monthly to state exchequer” they alleged.
Kranti Dal also appealed the Governor of the state to look into the matter personally and assesses the functioning of the state government and also warned that Kranti Dal will in no way tolerate such anti national elements.
