Border area got family bunkers, roads, towers, reservations in 10 years: Jitendra

Border area got family bunkers, roads, towers, reservations in 10 years: Jitendra

Jammu, Apr 9 (UNI) Union Minister and BJP Candidate for Udhampur Lok Sabha constituency Dr Jitendra Singh on Tuesday said people along the International border got Family Bunkers, road network up to zero line, towers, toilets, 4 percent reservation in government jobs and admission to higher education institutions during the last 10 years only after Prime Minister Narendra Modi took over.
Dr Singh said, it was Prime Minister Narendra Modi who suggested that the last village on the border should not be referred to as the last village but rather should referred to as “first” village, which would not only give esteem to that area and people living over there but also will be kind of recognition that the territory of India starts from that border village inwards toward the rest of the hinterland.
While participating and addressing a mega youth bike rally organised by Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morch (BJYM), which covered the entire stretch of the International border covering all the border villages up to zero line before culminating at Kootah, Dr. Jitendra Singh said, before 2014, the people living in the border area constantly felt insecure and lived under constant fear of cross firing from across the border happening at any time. He alleged that the then Congress government and its allies did not pay any heed to their plight even though the people living here constituted the first line of defence in case of foreign aggression.
