Cong responsible for plight of farmers: Tomar

BJP pc-iStating that the Congress ruled the country for maximum time after independence, BJP Kissan Morcha National President Vijay Pal Singh Tomar held it responsible for the present plight of the farmers. Addressing media persons at party headquarters at Trikuta Nagar, Vijay Pal Singh Tomar said that the Congress remained in power on its own or in alliance at the Centre for decades but unfortunately its anti-farmer programmes and policies forced the migration of the farmers to towns and cities for earning livelihood. Tomar said that the farmers, who earlier constituted 82 per cent of the country’s population has reduced to merely 62 per cent. The migration of the farmers to cities, because of lack of infrastructure, irrigation facilities and quite reduced income agriculture were posing great challenges. The agriculture had become unprofitable job because of the wrong policies, which were anti-farmer during the Congress rule for most of the period after independence. Thus the farmers were being compelled to commit suicide because of unimaginable loan burden on their heads. He narrated that the NDA government led by Atal Behari Vajpayee had initiated the job of connecting the rivers not only to curtail the floods but also to provide sufficient water for irrigation purpose throughout the country. But the scheme was abandoned during the Congress rule of past 10 years. Terming the present BJP-led NDA government as pro-farmers, Tomar said that many decisions have been taken with the objective of ensuing early and maximum compensation of crop losses caused by natural calamities. He further added that looking at the poor conditions of the farmers and with a view to raise their income and standard of living a number of pro-farmer steps have been initiated by the present NDA government led by Narendra Modi. The steps taken includes Deen Dayal Gramin Vidyut Yojana, PM Fasal Beena Yojana, Kissan Credit Card, drive to dig new ponds and tube wells, construction of toilets in the village, providing free gas connection to the poor villagers etc. Vijay Pal Singh Tomar said that Narendra Modi has assured electricity in every village by 2018, which would be a great achievement. Morcha State President Rajinder Singh Chib, Vice-President Pavinder Gupta, Morcha General Secretaries Capt. Kasturi Lal Sharma and Sunil Dutt Sharma were also present in the press conference.

Pre-1953 is an imaginary proposition: Prof. Virender

Prof. Virender GuptaJ&K BJP State Spokesperson, Prof. Virender Gupta, strongly criticized the repeated statements of Farooq Abdullah, Omar Abdullah and other leaders of NC that the government at the centre in connivance with the PDP leadership is eroding the J&K autonomy as granted under Article 370 and added that the statements are misconceived, against the facts and being issued to mislead and provoke the Muslim community of the Valley with an only objective to recapture the politically lost space in the Valley. He said that National Food Security Act (NFSA) and National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) are the examples being enhanced to prove their point. He said that the state government is not bound to accept NFSA, in fact, N.N. Vohra, the Governor of the state, during the Governor’s rule, modified the same while looking at the demands and requirements of the people of the state and the Chief Minister immediately after taking over further enhanced the quantum of ration that was to be delivered to each family. Prof. Virender said that ”Do Farooq and Omar want that none of the students of J&K should appear in the examinations conducted by the central agencies, like IAS, Banking examinations, Railways recruitment examinations, examinations conducted for recruitment in army and other para-military forces, for recruitment in universities and research centres and in such like other examinations of Government of India outside the state?” and further questioned that are these leaders against the Kashmiri students appearing in CAT/ MAT examinations to earn eligibility for MBA courses within the state and outside the state. He added that they had objected to the Sainik Colony, which was proposed to be constructed for the Sainiks who hold the state subject. Prof. Virender said that it is foolish to consider that these steps would erode the Autonomy of J&K state granted under Article 370. He stated that the demands of greater autonomy and pre-1953 position as demanded by NC leaders have become irrelevant after J&K adopted its Constitution in 1957 and in particular, after 1975 accord between tall leader of National Conference, Sheikh Mohamed Abdullah and Mrs. Indira Gandhi, the then Prime Minister of India. He said that It is ridiculous to talk about the erosion of Article 370 by the NC leaders in the light of fact that Sheikh Abdullah in his second term of power agreed to the findings of D.D. Thakur (the Deputy Chief Minister in Sheikh’s cabinet), who in his one man committee report had stated that the central laws and institutions, which were extended to J&K after 1953 were beneficial for state and its people and needles of the clock cannot be turned back. Prof. Virender reminded the NC leaders that out of about 45 Amendments in State Constitution, about 14 were made after 1975, when NC was in power. The leaders must know that the people of Jammu region, Ladakh region and about 50 percent population of the Valley, which includes Gujjar, Bakarwal, Shias and the minority communities, do not endorse the demand of greater autonomy and in fact they are against the demand and want abrogation of Article 370. The leaders must also realize that the Kashmir region constitutes merely about 16 percent of the area of Indian part of J&K state. Prof. Virender advised the National Conference leaders to understand the realities of the day and do not nurture hypothetical presumptions and adopt the policy of bringing the Kashmiri people in the national mainstream, instead of indulging in activities that strengthen the separatists and anti-India forces.

Kavinder rescues casual labour from sealed shop at Govindpura

20160518_140418Speaker J&K Legislative Assembly and MLA, Gandhi Nagar, Kavinder Gupta on Wednesday came to the rescue of a poor chap at Govindpura area of his constituency. Local shopkeepers of the Chatha went on strike due to the imprudent attitude of the administration, the shopkeepers reported that the Tehsildar South in violation of the powers vested in him behaved like a dictator. The Tehsildar behaved in such a manner that there is no one above him in the department, he called the JCB and directed to remove all the shops of main road without any prior notice which are there for the last more than 40 years describing that the actual width of the road is 100 feet . The matter was brought to the notice of the Speaker and he immediately visited the area along with the SDM, South and took cognizance of the issue, Gupta was informed that Tehsildar along with the concerned Patwari and Naib-Tehsildar came there and started threatening the shop keepers that all their shops are illegally constructed and he is going to dismantle them. After getting stiff resistance from the locals, the Tehsildar started sealing the shops in a haphazard manner and during this whole episode one casual worker got locked in the sweet shop which was sealed by the Tehsildar. The Speaker in the presence of SDM got the labour person rescued from the shop and directed him to initiate enquiry as how this all thing happened; without any prior notice to the shopkeepers under whose influence the revenue officers acted in such slapdash way. Gupta assured the people that there is nothing to worry about and the whole thing will be investigated in a fair manner and strict action will be taken against the guilty. Later on the assurance of the speaker the shopkeepers lifted their protest dharna and also expressed their gratitude to him for his timely intervention.

J&K: Pragmatism is the Need of the Hour, Brig Anil Gupta

Anil Gupta copyThe issues like NFSA, NEET, Establishment of Sainik Colonies in Srinagar, honourable return of Kashmiri Pandits to Valley and settlement of West Pakistan refugees and the positions taken by various political parties and the separatists has brought to fore a very important question. Do the people of Jammu & Kashmir want to join the rest of the nation on the path of growth & development, enjoy dividends of peace and live a dignified life or they want to continue to remain in the era of backwardness, poverty, lawlessness, terror and lead a life full of fear and uncertainties? I for one and am sanguine majority of my fellow citizens are interested in the former. I can understand and accept the position taken by the separatists on these issues because they have no ideology of their own. They only speak the language of their masters sitting across the border and hence have no choice but to repeat what their akas want them to say? Pakistan is no friend or well -wisher of the people of Jammu & Kashmir. Its intentions viz a viz Jammu & Kashmir are aptly clear, “If you can’t get it, destroy it.” Pakistan having failed miserably to annex the state through four wars and tree decade old proxy war backed by state sponsored terrorism, it is now embarked on the path of destruction. Having successfully destroyed the cultural identity of the state based on diversity, tolerance and mutual love and respect for each other, it now wants the state to remain underdeveloped and plunge it into the dark era of medieval thinking. This strategy also suits Pakistan to supress the voice of the people of POJK (so called Azad Kashmir) and Gilgit-Baltistan and legitimises the loot of its natural resources and exploitation of their poverty stricken population. Pakistan furthers its interest in our state through the Hurriyat and hence rhetoric of its leaders of all hues and shades do not surprise me at all and can be dismissed. What are baffling are the statements of the leaders of so called mainstream political parties who owe allegiance to the Constitution of India and its unity and integrity. Why are they becoming a party to Pakistan’s strategy; is it to please Pakistan or for their narrow selfish political ends? Either way it is not in the interest of the majority of the people of the state who want to restore the state to its pristine glory and enjoy the dividends of peace. These politicians have mastered the fine art of making issues out of “non-issues” to remain in limelight lest they are forgotten by the people. Jammu & Kashmir known as the “heaven on earth” is rich in natural resources and has numerous tourist destinations but is unable to generate financial resources adequate enough to run the affairs of the state. It has vast potential but is unable to exploit the same because it woefully lacks adequate infrastructure. The mutual distrust between the three regions of the state also hampers its development. The vast reservoir of youth wants jobs which are very few in numbers. The misguided youth of the valley wants to shun violence but do not find a worthwhile alternative. The government of the day is grappling with these problems. The Central Government has announced a massive, unprecedented financial package. Is this the panacea? In my view the answer is “NO”. The state needs to develop self-sustaining economy. It needs to create jobs. It needs to develop the state into a major tourist hub for Recreational/Pleasure, Pilgrimage, Heritage, Adventure, Border, Health, Handicraft, Horticulture, Rural and Wildlife tourism both for international and national tourists. Tourism being a labour intensive industry provides a very vast scope for employment opportunities which would facilitate in overcoming the problem of unemployment in the State. Tourism is regarded as multi-segmental industry; therefore it provides different types of jobs like hotel managers, receptionists, accountants, clerks, guides, travel agents, drivers, chefs, transport operators etc. It also encourages private entrepreneurship. It will not only contribute to state’s domestic income generation but generate foreign exchange as well. However, the state does not have the wherewithal to directly involve itself in running the tourism industry. The participation of the private sector both from the within and outside the state is a pre-requisite for achieving the desired aims. The government jobs are limited and hence cannot satisfy the aspirations of the unemployed youth of the state. There is a need to create jobs. As mentioned earlier tourism sector is one of the major sources of employment generation but that by it would not be sufficient to create the adequate number of desired jobs. As per an estimate there are about six lakh unemployed youth in the state and it tops in unemployment rate among the North Indian states. Suffice to deduce that other sources of employment generation need to be tapped. While industry is a known source of employment generation, jobs are also created as a by- product of infrastructure development. Software industry and a few start-ups as part of “Start Up India” need to come up in the state. For promoting health tourism, we need to create medical institutions of excellence with renowned doctors and Para-medical staff so that coupled with the salubrious climate of the state these institutions become a major attraction for the cash-rich foreigners. Another sector in which the state can excel is the education sector. There are numerous places in the state that are suitable for opening public schools and higher centres of learning with boarding and hostel facilities on the pattern of popular boarding schools in Himachal, Uttarakhand, Maharashtra and Tamilnadu. But why is J&K lacking in these assets and facilities. Why is it that despite fervent appeals made by all the Chief Ministers the big business houses/ software industry are chary of investing in the state? Despite huge amount of financial support from the central government why the infrastructure (both economic and social) continues to be in shambles and state’s tourism potential has not been harnessed to its full capability? Many would blame poor governance and rampant corruption for the same. While these may be contributory factors but are not solely responsible. Let us accept the fact that we lack in-house resources both capital & talent. We may be able to raise buildings but our hospitals and educational institutions would not be able to deliver without qualified super specialists and renowned educationists. There is no denying the fact that we do not have adequate in-house talent and there has to be enough motivation for talent from outside the state to make the all- important decision of re-location. The main cause is Article 370 and Article 35A of the Constitution of India. In fact these Articles have become raison d’etre for some of the valley- centric political parties. These temporary provisions of the constitution are acting as a hindrance to the economic growth of the state. The time and situation as it prevailed when these acts were enacted have changed. The need of the hour is to be more pragmatic in the larger interest of the state rather than being narrow minded and exploit the provisions for petty political gains. The argument that any sort of relaxation would result in demographic reversal of the state is flawed, motivated and intended to promote separatism. Rules will have to be relaxed to provide incentives for investors and professionals to attract them to the state. To promote investment in industrial sector land on long term lease will have to be provided to the industrialists. I appeal fervently to the political leadership of the state to face the reality and be more open & practical for the holistic development of the state. Otherwise, the future generations would hold them responsible for all their woes. (The author is a Jammu-based political commentator, columnist, strategic and security analyst.

Establishing new hospitals milestone in J&K’s health sector: Balbir

Balbir Ram RattanStep to provide succor to patients at local level The initiative of the Union Ministry of Health & Family Welfare for establishment of new medical colleges attached with existing Referral/District Hospitals, is indeed one more step towards providing standard health care facilities to the needy people in their own districts in Jammu & Kashmir. This was stated by BJP State Spokesperson Balbir Ram Rattan, while terming this initiative as historic, added that it will not only help in treatment of the ailing people but save precious lives in the event of mishaps in these districts. “The establishment of medical colleges at district levels will prove to be milestones in the health sector”, Balbir said. It also reflects the concern and commitment of Prime Minister Narendra Modi government to ensure that no one is deprived of availing best treatment without travelling long distances for the same. Balbir said no doubt the capital cities of Jammu and Kashmir state have Soura Institute at Srinagar and GMC Hospital in Jammu and these institutions have better facilities of treatment but similar facilities are not available in hospitals which are far away located in districts and as a result a large number of patients are frequently referred to Jammu or Srinagar. This not only poses inconvenience to the patients and their attendants, many of whom cannot afford frequent visits to Jammu or Srinagar, but also creates pressure on the government hospitals which usually face full occupancy. Balbir further said it has been seen that most of the people, particularly who meet accidents in hilly and far flung areas, when taken to the nearby District, Sub District Hospital or Primary Health Centre, are immediately referred to capital cities with an excuse of lack of required facilities to treat them. Many a times, the people who get severely injured, succumb to their injuries before reaching the referred hospitals. Expressing hope that the three new hospitals, for which foundation stones have been laid at Rajouri, Anantnag and Baramulla, will be constructed at the earliest equipped with the modern infrastructure, Balbir said that the commissioning of these hospitals will provide succor to patients of the state at local level besides creating job opportunities for the medicos.

Stop criticising us; look at your track record: BJP

Anil Gupta copyWith no issues at hand, opposition parties are only resorting to criticism of Bharatiya Janata Party because they are unable to digest the achievements of Narendra Modi government during the past two years. As per Brigadier Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of BJP “It has become a fashion both at the national as well as state level to criticise the BJP because of its growing popularity with the masses. Feeling threatened of their very existence, these political parties are desperately trying to create an environment of uncertainty and mistrust through false and motivated propaganda to distract BJP from its main agenda of development.” Reacting sharply to the recent statements of the leaders of NC, Congress and JKNPP, Brig Gupta said that when these parties enjoyed the mandate of the people, they did nothing but looted the state exchequer, ignored the common masses, deprived the people of basic necessities of Pani, Bijli aur Sadak, made false promises and provided the worst type of governance. Despite the fact that people realised the divisive and communal agenda of NC and showed them the door, it is ironical that the Abdullahs are still harping the old tune of NC being the only secular party. In fact, the stand taken by the party on NEET issue has clearly demonstrated the party’s ideology of regionalism, communalism and separatism. Exposing the Congress, Brig Gupta said that it is a party of scams with no political agenda or ideology. Its state unit is a divided house with small factions, each furthering its own agenda without any direction or central policy. Its leaders who are known for their corrupt practices while in government are now making tall claims and promises unmindful of the fact that the people have not only lost faith in them but their party as well. JKNPP which was totally wiped out during the elections is now trying to champion the cause of Jammu. The party should first restore the credibility of their leaders who did nothing for the cause of Jammu till date including the period they were in the government said Brig Gupta. On the other hand apart from visible infrastructure development the Modi government in a short span of two years has launched more than 50 people friendly welfare schemes, the benefits of which are reaching directly to the intended beneficiaries. To quote just one example, under PM Mudra Yojna 2.75 crore people have been given loan amounting to Rs. 99,467 crore during the last financial year, which has led to true empowerment of young and needy entrepreneurs.

Farooq and Omar are playing politics of secessionism : Prof. Virender

Prof. Virender GuptaJ&K BJP spokesperson, Prof. Virender Gupts strongly condemned the statements issued by the leaders of National Conference, in particular the father and son duo, Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah on some recent issues such as NIT, shelter house for labourers, Sainik Colony in Valley and now on NEET, to settle political score with Mehbooba Mufti and the present PDP- BJP alliance government. He said that their statements were intended to percolate anti-India feelings among the Kashmiri Muslims and encourage separatists and anti- India forces in the Valley and expressed his anguish that the National Conference once again adopted the policy of alienating the Kashmiri Muslims from the national mainstream, thus putting the Valley in turmoil and derails it from the path of development. Prof. Virender said that the proposal of having Sainik Colony in Valley was taken in a meeting in March 2012, held under the chairmanship of State Governor which was duly attended by Omar Abdullah. He further said that the proposed Sainik Colony was to be developed at par with other colonies like police personals colony, employees’ colony and the similar Sainik colony do exist in Jammu city which is meant for the army men holding state subject. He questioned “then how does it is going to effect the so called special privileges enjoyed by the state under article 370, what was the need to raise hue and cry, particularly when Omar himself was party to the decision”. Prof. Virender expressed that the opposition to National Eligibility Entrance Examination for the students of Jammu and Kashmir, by the duo is completely illogical and baseless and added that the students of the Jammu and Kashmir state are appearing in CAT/ MAT examinations to earn eligibility for MBA courses within the state and outside the state, the NET examinations is being conducted under HRD ministry for earning to eligibility to apply for the post of Asstt. Professor and for pursuing Research in state universities and state colleges. He further stated that our students also appear in the GATE examination to earn eligibility to get admission for M.Tech courses. Prof. Virender said that he hoped that both Abdullas know the new departments and staff positions and the new projects in the universities/colleges are sanctioned and funded by the UGC/CSIR and other central agencies. He narrated that the degrees given by the universities and medical colleges of the state are recognized through India, provided these institutions get recognition from the UGC, Medical Council of India or other centre agencies. Prof. Virender asked “Do Farooq Abdullah and Omar Abdullah have guts to ask for abolition of all these tests for Jammu and Kashmir Students and ask the Government of India to stop funding the universities, colleges and other institutions of the state?” Prof. Virender appealed to the two Abdullas to stop playing ugly and anti-national politics which is neither good for Kashmiri Muslims nor for them. He further appealed to allow and in fact work for the peace to prevail in the state so that the state moves fast in the path of development and people of the state enjoy a life of prosperity and brotherhood.

Sainik Colony in Valley: Omar’s dual face exposed says Brig Gupta

Anil Gupta copyOmar Abdullah by raking up the issue of Sainik Colony in Valley has clearly demonstrated the level which he and his party can stoop down in order to please the separatists in the Valley. According to Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party, “It was during the tenure of Omar as Chief Minister that the proposal of a Sainik Colony in Valley was mooted by the Rajya Sainik Board. During the annual meetings of the board held at Raj Bhawan, Jammu in 2012 & 2013 and attended by Omar Abdullah as Chief Minister and ex-officio Vice President of the Board “Establishment of Sainik Colony at Srinagar” was discussed as one of the agenda points. Omar Abdullah at that time had not raised any objection to the proposal hence conveying his concurrence and that of his party too. The same has been recorded as Minute 3.9 in the Minutes of the Meeting of 2012 and distributed to all concerned after the meeting.” It was amply clarified during the meeting that strict bye laws will be made to ensure that only the ex- servicemen and serving soldiers can benefit from such a scheme. It is highly condemnable that same Omar Abdullah now at the behest of the separatists is trying to mislead the innocent people of the state with an attempt to create unrest in the Valley thus exposing his double face. It is a clear manifestation of the divisive, communal and separatist ideology of National Conference. Brig Gupta also released a copy of the minute 3.9 and the list of participants of the meeting held at Raj Bhawan Jammu on 02 Mar 2012 in which name of Omar Abdullah appeared at ser no. 2. Brig Gupta challenged Omar Abdullah to deny this and render an apology to the people of J&K for misleading them for petty political gains. “Wasn’t Omar Abdullah concerned about the special status of J&K when he was the CM or he is only reminded of it and sheds crocodile tears for the same when not in power? How can he blame the current alliance government for the proposal mooted during the tenure of his government,” questioned Brig Gupta.

NEET Issue: Brig Gupta refutes allegations made by Abdullahs

Anil Gupta copyBrig Anil Gupta has refuted the allegations made by Dr Farooq Abdullah that the extention of NEET to J&K will be detrimental to the interests of the students from the state and will put their future in peril. He accused Dr Abdullah and his son Omar Abdullah of playing to the galleries and misleading the innocent youth of the state by linking NEET with erosion of the special status of the state. Dr Abdullah’s statement that it would rob the female students of the 50% reservation is also untrue and aimed at creating unnecessary misunderstanding in the young minds who are already agitated due to the non-performance of the previous government led by his son. Another false statement made by Dr Abdullah is that our students will have to compete at national level for the different reserved quota for admission in the medical colleges of the state. Brig Gupta said that honourable Supreme Court of India has endorsed the special Status of the state enjoyed by virtue of its special constitutional and legal position. The bench hearing the case has categorically stated that only permanent residents of the state shall be eligible for admission to medical colleges in J&K. Allaying all fears the honourable bench has further stated that the reservations shall be as per the State Reservation Act and women would continue to get 50% reservation as enshrined in the reservation Act. The Court has also clarified that state wise merit list will be prepared based on the marks secured in the NEET and respective states will conduct counseling for their medical colleges. “It is therefore crystal clear that conduct of NEET in no way will harm the interests of the students of our state but will bring an end to the alleged dubious role played by the JK Board of Professional Entrance Exam and will bring cheers to the hard working and deserving aspirants belonging to all the three regions of the state. The merit list will be based on the marks secured in NEET and as per the existing State Reservation Act. It is a win-win situation for all” according to Brig Gupta.

Check the flow of hawala money: BJP

Prof. Verinder GuptaJ&K BJP spokes person, Prof. Virender Gupta expressed his serious concern on the reported news on flow of huge hawala money from the gulf countries in Jammu and Kashmir State as a result a large number of new mosques and seminaries have come up, with a purpose to radicalize the Kashmiri Muslim youth. He added that the youth are brainwashed, trained as militant and become part of the separatists, militants and anti-India forces. Prof Virender said that the frequent happenings of fluttering of ISIS and Pakistan flags with raising anti-India and pro-Pak slogans and also pelting stones on the forces engaged in fighting the terrorists indicate the gravity of the situation emerging in the Valley. He asked the government both at the state as well Centre level to take serious note the situation and strongly act against the anti-India forces to boost the morale of the security forces who are fighting for national cause and for the restoration of peace in the Valley. He further added that such activities has damaged the pluralistic ethos of Valley and reduced it as composed of mono-religious society, with the migration of Kashmiri Pandits and other minority communities. He cautioned the Government and the Kashmiri Muslim society that if strong will is not exhibited and hard steps are not taken at this juncture, the Kashmir shall meet disaster and it shall lose its identity. Prof. Virender expressed his surprise that government and police force deliberately ignored the conduct of about 30 friendly cricket matches between 12 teams, extended over a period of two to three months, in different parts of the valley sponsored and arranged by the separatist groups and consequently, a prize distribution function in the name of the separatists killed was held under the chairmanship of a father of a hard-core terrorist. He added that this was a great negligence on the part of the government as the cricket matches were used as instruments in motivating the youth to bring them under the banner of separatists. Prof. Virender said that it is irony that on one hand the police used brute force against the non-local students studying in NIT Srinagar, raising pro-India slogans while carrying national flag, and beat them mercilessly, whereas, on other hand, it allowed the anti-national event to happen and skipped the venue of the event deliberately.

DGP should not wait for his retirement but act: Arora

Ramesh AroraBJP Senior leader & MLC Ramesh Arora (Adv.) discussed the matter of NIT with Director General of Police and express his concern over the unfortunate incident of NIT, where students were thrashed and abused for no fault and demanded action against delinquent police persons involved in lathicharge. Arora said we don’t want to demoralize local police but at the same time, we cannot allow anybody from our force to spoil the peaceful atmosphere and give a bad name to the state. The incident of NIT is not only condemnable but is a move to create wedge between local and non-local, which is not in the interest o the state. Our students from this region are studying in different parts of the country and we cannot afford misunderstanding between local and non-local. Arora said it appear that few persons wanted to play politics and recent episode of JNU have boosted their nefarious designs. This fact is also required to be investigated, weather it is a act of irresponsible cop or political motivated game. We smell that certain parties which are out of power wanted to demolish peace and fabric of brotherhood prevailing in the state through their yes man or persons present in forces. This will be dealt seriously because no one is above law and cannot exploit his position and power. Arora appealed all sections of students to continue their studies without fear and should have the confidence that such acts of irresponsible mindset will not be allowed to be repeated in Kashmir or in any other part of the state. It is duty of the state under the constitution to protect life and liberty and we cannot allow protector to cause damage to this commitment. Arora asked DGP that he should not wait for his retirement and he should prove himself a man of action which is his duty also.

New dispensation has to perform exceedingly well to come to expectations and high hopes of the masses .

Sunil Sethi further asked the leadership of both parties to provide responsive governance to the state which can respond to the needs and expectations of the masses and justify the confidence reposed on the continued alliance by Prime Minister Narinder Modi. While central government is on record to have ensured continuous flow of funds for development, it will be duty of the new government to ensure that each penny of central funds reaches the person for whom it is meant. Sethi assured full support to the new government on behalf of Bharatiya Janata Party and reiterated the resolve to stand by agenda of alliance between the parties which is basic document of governance between both of them.

Sat Sharma, in his presidential address, said that it is indeed a matter of pride for us having being associated with a party which gets inspiration from the lives of great ideologues and patriots like Dr. Shyama Prasad Mokherjee and Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyaya. While Dr. Mookherjee sacrificed his life for the complete integration of J&K state with the Indian Union, Pt. Deen Dayal, throughout his life worked for the nation with the ideology of Ekatam Mananavvad. “Today BJP is in the government at the centre and maximum states and it is the result of the decades long struggle of our ideologues as well as the party activists at state, mandal and booths level”, Sat said and added that the people also deserve credit for bringing in BJP by rejecting other political parties, Congress in particular. He said that PM Narendra Modi has a mission to see India Congress free under the slogan of “Congress Mukt Bharat” and we should not rest till the same is achieved. Describing BJP as a party with a difference, Sat Sharma said that the same is reflected in its organizational set up in which even a booth level activist can become State or National President. The party also follows inner democracy and its organizational election as National, State, District, Mandal levels are held on time. He said that the BJP has today more than 2.5 lakh members in Kashmir, it won three Lok Sabha and 25 assembly seats and LAHDC is headed by BJP, which shows that people in all the three regions want BJP.

Later, Leader of Legislative Party Dr. Nirmal Singh presented political resolution and it was seconded by State Spokesperson Brig. Anil Gupta.

Harinder-GuptaClaiming that Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) is indeed a great gift to the farmers across the country by Prime Minister Narenda Modi, State BJP has termed it as the reflection of PM’s concern and commitment towards crores of farmers whose survival is totally dependent on the crops. BJP State General Secretary, Harinder Gupta, while making an appeal to the farmers in the state in particular, to adopt and avail the benefits of thisscheme, said that for the first time in the history the country has got a Prime Minister, who has displayed pain and concern for all the sections of the society and taken one decision after the other with a sole motive of bringing prosperity in the lives of the people.
“Be it unemployed youth, senior citizen, ex-serviceman, women, people living along borders or disabled people, Prime Minister has taken very keen interest in launching welfare schemes for each of them with an objective of their social and economic upliftment”, Harinder Gupta said and added that Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana is one such step in this regard. Speaking about the scheme, Harinder said that it has very less premium rates to be paid by the farmers so as to enable maximum farming community to avail the insurance cover against crop loss on account of natural calamities. He said that under this farmer-friendly schemes, a farmer has to pay a fixed premium of two per cent for kharif crops while for rabi crops is just 1.5 per cent. Similarly premium for commercial and horticultural crops, has been fixed at 5 per cent. The remaining share of the premium, is to be borne by the Centre and the respective State governments. Harinder Gupta said that the scheme has now also been adopted by Jammu and Kashmir government, the farmers should come forward to get themselves familiar with the details and get their crops insured on time.

Opposition Misleading about Agenda of Alliance: Brig Gupta

Anil Gupta copyIn a press statement issued by Bharatiya Janata Party its spokesperson Brig Anil Gupta has strongly condemned the statements being made by leaders of certain political parties and self-appointed champions of Jammu blaming BJP for sacrificing the interest of Jammu by signing the Agenda of Alliance with PDP. “These very leaders were out rightly rejected by the people of Jammu only a year back for their non-performance and high headed ness. While in power they were busy looting the public exchequer and filling their own coffers. They neither had time nor showed any interest in development of their respective areas. There is not even a single major achievement as far as the development of Jammu region is concerned. Now that they are out of power they do not waste any time in issuing false and motivated statements to defame BJP,” said Brig Gupta. The Agenda of Alliance has been signed between the coalition partners to honour the mandate given by the people of Jammu & Kashmir. It is to act as the frame work for provision of good governance, self-sustaining and balanced development of all three regions of the State. “Due to the neglect of the previous Congress-NC alliance government the infrastructure; physical and social, had crumbled adversely affecting the tourism industry, the major source of revenue. The state’s economy was on the verge of collapse. Lack of leadership was glaringly absent. The people of the state voted for a change,” explained Brig Gupta. At this juncture the two parties came together keeping aside their ideologies to serve the people who were yearning for change and formed an alliance with the purpose of creating an enabling environment for all round economic development of the State and prosperity of the people. The mission of the Coalition Government as given in the Agenda of Alliance is, “ to be the most ethical state in the country from the present day position of being the most corrupt state”, said Brig Gupta. He further advised the opposition leaders to stop spreading lies and explain to the people as to what they have done for safeguarding the interests of the people of Jammu.

Challenge of intrusion of foreigners .000000 in J&K:   Prof. Virender

Prof. Virender GuptaJ&K BJP Spokesperson, Prof. Virender Gupta, expressed his great concern on the report that about thirty thousand foreigners, including those from Bangladesh, Myanmar and even from Pakistan, have creep into J&K and some of them have become ration card holders of the state. He said that coming of people from Bangladesh and Myanmar to Jammu and Kashmir illegally, after covering such a long distance, raises doubts about their intentions. He also expressed his anxious on the report that good number of persons had also sneaked into J&K territory from Pakistan and a good number of families entered the state via Nepal without the knowledge of state machinery. He showed his resentment that the concerned state authorities are not that vigilant and do not keep effective track of the foreigners entering the state. Prof. Virender said that the matter should be explored to the effect that whether such influx of the foreigners in J&K state is a part of some strategy on the part of national enemies, external or internal and he added that as Jammu and Kashmir being a sensitive state facing secessionist and terrorist activities for the last about twenty years, the authorities can not overlook this matter and has to maintain vigilance on this aspect. He demanded that the security should be tightened and special cell of the respective intelligence agency be constituted to identify the foreigners who have entered the J&K state without any legal documents. He also said that foreigners so identified be deported back to their respective countries after taking appropriate action against them.

Omar Abdullah should apologise for his off the cough statement: Brig Gupta

Anil Gupta copyOmar Abdullah is feeling desperate at the prospect of the formation of alliance government between BJP–PDP and hence has resorted to making sarcastic comments like “BJP will ask Mehbooba to say Bharat Mata Ki jai after the government formation”, commented Brig Anil Gupta State Spokesperson of BJP. Such statements confirm the fact that few individuals refuse to grow with age and keep behaving like errant children. Omar’s statement clearly indicates his immaturity and misplaced loyalty. What is wrong in saying Bharat Mata ki Jai questioned Brig Gupta? At the time of Pokharan 2, his father and then Chief Minister of J&K Farooq Abdullah went ecstatic and was seen shouting Bharat Mata Ki Jai and dancing on the TV channels. Why Omar, who was a MOS in NDA government, did not ask his father at that time as to why did he do so, asked Brig Gupta. Bharat Mata Ki Jai is not a religious or political slogan and no patriotic Indian should have any hesitation in chanting this national slogan. Brig Gupta reminded Omar Abdullah that many units of the Indian Army, the most secular, apolitical and patriotic organisation, shout this slogan as their war cry as it literally means victory of India. By making such irresponsible and off the cough statement, Omar Abdullah has hurt the sentiments of all patriotic Indians for which he must render an apology demanded Brig Gupta. After the demise of Mufti Sahib, NC leadership led by Omar Abdullah had started day dreaming of returning to power despite the fact that they were rejected by the electorate only a year back. During this period Omar did nothing except tweeting and criticising each and every people-friendly measure initiated by the alliance government. What has Omar and his party done to start day dreaming of returning to power? The fact is that Abdullahs are so used to the luxuries of power that they are not able to digest the fact that the people of J&K have voted them out of power. Sooner Omar learns to live with this reality better it will be for him, said the BJP spokesperson demanding an apology from him.

State BJP has asked the students from the state studying in educational institutions outside state to show respect and regards to the laws to enhance the image of state in the eyes of nation

Sunil SethiState Bharatiya Janata Party has asked the students from the state studying in educational institutions outside state to show respect and regards to the laws to enhance the image of state in the eyes of nation. The students of JK studying outside the state belonging to any religion or region are ambassadors of state and they should conduct themselves in manner befitting the persons belonging to state with rich heritage and dedication to nationalism. BJP State Chief Spokesperson Sunil Sethi noted that lawlessness or anti national conduct shown by even single student from state brings disrepute to not only student community of the state but state as a whole and such conduct on part of any person is condemnable and deplorable and can't be tolerated in any situation. Sunil Sethi through an official handout, said that patriotism and nationalism are not favour being shown to nation or fellow countrymen but is pious duty towards motherland and has to be honoured and displayed without fail by all. Students of state should be proud of being citizens of the great country with extreme tolerance across vast canvass of religious, lingual, cultural, regional dissimilarities. Sethi further said that students from state has to set example of disciplined community by following laws and rules of the place where they are getting education and to mix up with their brothers and sisters of the other regions of country to create atmosphere of brotherhood and friendship to be praised and emulated by all . BJP Chief Spokesperson further criticised the political parties, who are trying to do politics on the issue and trying to take political mileage at the cost of national interest, which is extremely unfortunate and disturbing. Instead of creating fear and confusion in students of state studying out they should guide students properly to weed out elements which are indulging in lawlessness and anti nationalism for the interest of students and state.

Cong leaders have nothing to claim: Harinder

Harinder-GuptaBJP State General Secretary Harinder Gupta, while reacting to the allegations of former Minister & Congress General Secretary Dr. Manohar Lal that BJP’s wrong policies have affected development, said that it is a white lie as ten month rule of BJP coalition witnessed massive development in the state as its prime policy was pro-people and development centric. Harinder Gupta said that the BJP had sought votes on the promise of good governance, development and ending corruption and every sincere effort was made to fulfil the poll promises. He said that the major achievement of the previous government, which had Congress as coalition partner, was that Jammu and Kashmir became one of the most corrupt state in the country. “Does Congress leaders recognize it as their achievement and the firm resolve of BJP to weed out corruption as failure”, said Harinder Gupta and added that the people are well aware about corruption and the parties which promoted this practice in the state while sharing power. Harinder Gupta said that people of the state had well understood that Congress, NC and Panthers, while in power as coalition partners during the last few decades, did nothing for common citizens despite the fact that the voters had displayed full trust on them and given many opportunities to prove their concern and commitment for welfare, development and people-friendly governments. “These parties were shown way and BJP was given a chance by the people as they wanted to get rid of such parties which made false promises and in reality never bothered to think of a common man”, Harinder Gupta said adding that the Congress leaders in particular are making repeated attempts to malign the image of BJP but none of them will succeed and people will once again punish this party in forthcoming elections of ULBs and Panchayats. He appealed the public not to trust Congress leaders as they have once again become active to mislead and deceive the innocent people to seek votes in ULBs and Panchayats.

Omar lacks information, misleading people: BJP

Dr. Narinder Singh copyThe State unit of BJP strongly rejects the allegations of former Chief Minister & Working President of National Conference Omar Abdullah, wherein he has tried to mislead the general public saying that PDP-BJP government had withheld relief, development funds to persecute people. BJP State General Secretary Dr. Narinder Singh, while terming these allegations as outcome of mere frustration, said that Omar Abdullah seems to lack information related to the funds for development in the state. He said that whatever the NC leader has said is false and an attempt to mislead the people, which has become a routine practice of the leaders of political parties, including Congress, NC and Panthers. BJP, since day first, had focussed on providing adequate relief to the flood affected people, he said. Dr. Narinder Singh reminded NC leader that for the first time in the history of Jammu and Kashmir, a huge package of rupees eighty thousand crores was provided by Narendra Modi government while it was PDP-BJP coalition in the state. “Our coalition had convinced the union government for such a huge package, which included funds for relief and development, Dr. Singh said and added that the BJP as a party also had stressed upon the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to sanction number of prestigious developmental projects and welfare schemes for the state while giving due share to every region. Dr. Singh further refreshed the memory of Omar Abdullah that it was infact NC, which had been opportunist for the lust of chair and the history is witness that Omar Abdullah embraced BJP and became Union Minister of State for Foreign Affairs during Atal Behari Vajpayee led government. He said that BJP had sought votes on the slogan of good governance and development and while sharing coalition for ten months in the state, not a single case of corruption took place and number of developmental activities were initiated. BJP State General Secretary cautioned the people of the state not to get misled by the leaders like Omar Abdullah as they have nothing to claim while they themselves were in power and now are out in public to regain the lost ground as the elections of Urban Local Bodies and Panchayats are on the corner.

Tanveer Baba, in a Statement issued today, said that the statement that Kashmiri women are being raped has hurt the sentiments of Kashmiri women

Tanveer BabaBJP State Working Committee Member Tanveer Baba, in a Statement issued today, said that the statement that Kashmiri women are being raped has hurt the sentiments of Kashmiri women. Kashmiri women have been always lived keeping their heads high. Nobody on earth can rape Kashmiri women. This is unacceptable. Army is a disciplined force that assist people in additional to their duty. Kashmiri women have understood silence on this issue by political parties like National Conference and Congress. Tanveer Baba said that Omar Abdullah says that Ghulam Nabi Azad will have to touch the feet of PDP in Rajya Sabha, but reverse happened. Touch feet politicians have not said a single word on statement maligning Kashmiri women. Kashmiri women have now understood the politics of NC and Congress. It is seen that they have supported the irresponsible statement. This shows their callous attitude towards Kashmiri women who have been target of militancy for last twenty five years. The people of Kashmir have suffered and nobody should sprinkle salt on their wounds. There is need to identity the culprits and their supporters who have raised finger on Kashmiri women. Kashmiri women will have to stand up now and show their strength and defeat such people and supporters.

Hurriyat exposed, reveals its true colour: BJP

Anil Gupta copyBJP has strongly condemned the statement of Ghulam Nabi Sumji Deputy General Secretary of Hurriyat (G) in which he stated, “inspiration for the freedom struggle of Kashmir is only Islam and establishing a model Islamic state is our first and last objective.” BJP spokesperson said, “Hurriyat is ‘His Master’s Voice’ and speaks the language Pakistan wants it to speak. It has no ideology of its own and is a puppet of Pakistan’s ISI. It is for this reason that its leaders rush to the Pakistan High commission at the first given opportunity.” Kashmir is a part of Jammu & Kashmir state which is an integral part of India is a non-negotiable fact and no power on earth can separate Kashmir from India, said Brig Gupta. Such uncalled for statement by the Hurriyat leader is aimed at disturbing communal harmony in the state and instil a sense of fear and uncertainty in the minds of the minorities but the nationalist cadre of BJP is always ready to meet such challenges and ensure the unity and integrity of the people of the state. Brig Gupta further stated that the creation of an ‘Islamic State’ is the declared aim of terrorist outfits like ISIS, Al-Qaeda, LET, JEM and Taliban. Hurriyat through the statement of its Deputy General Secretary has acknowledged the fact that it is working to further the agenda of these terrorist organisations in the State. Such open and defiant support of these dreaded terrorist outfits by the Hurriyat demands an immediate ban on it as all these terrorist outfits are already facing an international ban. Brig Gupta drew the attention of Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad to the statement of his name sake and questioned his silence in condemning the Hurriyat while he has been making wild allegations against a patriotic organisation like the RSS. Brig Gupta also appealed to all secular and patriotic people of the state to come forward and vehemently oppose the mischievous statement of the Hurriyat. Brig Gupta said that Pakistan which has launched a proxy war against India and is openly sponsoring terror will never succeed in its nefarious design of disintegrating India particularly Jammu & Kashmir. He also criticised the Pakistan High Commissioner for inviting the Hurriyat leaders for Pakistan Day function in New Delhi.

Fix responsibility for discrepancies in voter lists: BJP

Balbir Ram RattanIn view of the massive resentment over large scale discrepancies in the voter lists, it has become imperative on part of the government to look into these allegations, constitute a team to investigate and fix the responsibility on the erring officials and staff of the concerned department. In an official handout, BJP State Spokesperson Balbir Ram Rattan said that the state unit of BJP has already expressed grave concern over the issue. He said that the party State President and other senior leaders have taken the matter with the senior officials of election authorities in the state and shared the details about various discrepancies in the voter lists. “The seriousness of the matter can be well judged from the allegations that in many municipal wards, hundreds of names of the existing voters have been deleted; in many cases a male is mentioned as female voter; no corrections have been made despite the applications submitted well in time for the purpose; parentage & age is incorrect; residential addresses too are mentioned wrong in many cases; names of some voters from a particular ward have been shifted to adjoining or other ward”, said Balbir and added that in one such case of negligence, the name of a female Ex-Corporator has also been deleted despite the fact she is still living in the same ward. similar complaints are being received from the other districts. BJP State Spokesperson said that the voters, whose names stood registered for decades in the voter lists are also missing and it is not just a mistake but seems to be part of some conspiracy hatched at the behest of some political parties, who want to regain their ground.It is not possible without the active involvement of the officials and staff of the election authorities, which need to be investigated. Balbir Ram Rattan said that on one hand, the government is gearing up for the elections to the ULBs and Panchayats, on the other hand massive discrepancies have been detected in the voter lists and holding elections with these erroneous lists will debar thousands of genuine voters from exercising their constitutional right, which a citizen enjoys in democracy. Balbir said that the government should immediately order an impartial probe into the said discrepancies, fix the responsibility and punish the guilty officials under the law of the land and undertake a thorough exercise to remove and correct all the discrepancies.

Dr. Gagan Bhagat Member Legislative Assembly Strongly oppose the strategy that has been adopted by the Administration in implementing it, in the R.S Pura Constituency

1915034_965655146849517_5995994456247519388_nDr.Gagan Bhagat Member Legislative Assembly Strongly oppose the strategy that has been adopted by the Administration in implementing it, in the R.S Pura Constituency. The issue of BIFURCATION has not been resolved and it is creating confusion among the common masses, and R.S Pura Constituency owing to its rich cultural tradition has a JOINT FAMILY Culture and according to the present method adopted is that at a maximum SIX members of a family will be given 30 Kg of Ration under the present Plan adopted by the government, and in which 12 kg of Rice and 18kg of Wheat grains will be provided. And what will happen in case of JOINT families which are in abundance in R.S Pura constituency and adding to the problem the department has also failed to perform the BIFURCATION of the Ration Card, and no new Ration Card has been created , so the Joint family will not get the ration, when the government is planning “Food for All” .One more flaw in the present NFSA is that the officials deputed for the purpose have no knowledge regarding the act because they are from different field and A.W.W and the Gram Sewaks have no idea about the act, and if the department would have placed I.T Literate persons in doing that so along with the concerned dealers the results would have been outstanding. The data punched is completely wrong and has many discrepancies in it , and due to which several persons who are earning lakhs are listed in the B.P.L List, and the deserving ones are left out, the list also wrongly write Wife of in place of daughter of this has been taken seriously by some religious organizations , and the spelling mistakes is there in almost in every third case. The officials are demanding State Subjects from the ration card holders, and since R.S Pura Constituency have lot of West Pakistan Refugees which are getting the benefit of Ration previously , but due to the present guideline those who do not possess the State Subject will not be benefitted under the said NFSA.And the issue of State Subjects is very much complex the S.D.M who is posted at R.S Pura has completely failed to speed up the State Subject issue and there is thousands of cases of State Subject pending at SDM Office R.S Pura.The probationers are sent here to get trained in the Sub Division , as R.S Pura is an TRAINING INSTITUTE whether it is an IAS, IPS ,KAS or KPS , due to lack of experience the probationers failed to solve the basic problems of R.S Pura Sub-Division. If the administration does not take a positive step and rectify the said issues the B.J.P workers and common people who are suffering due to this will come on roads and will not allow the C.A.P.D to function as it has completely failed to provide “Food for All”, rather it has been seen as “Food to some” , I also request H.E the Governor of Jammu & Kashmir to kindly intervene in the matter so that the situation be controlled from turning bad to worst.Dr.P.P Singh Spokesperson BJP Distt. Committee, and Nathram RS Pura Mandal Pradhan were also present in the Press conference.

RSS works for inculcating nationalistic feelings: BJP

Lotus WebsiteTaking strong exception to the stem entry of Ghulam Nabi Azad, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha & former Chief Minister of J&K, on comparing RSS with ISIS, the state Bharatiya Janata Party has said that it shows lack of knowledge and disregard to the significant contribution of RSS in nation building . In a joint press statement, BJP State Chief Spokesperson Sunil Sethi and State Spokesperson Balbir Ram Rattan, have asserted that RSS, since its inception, has been involved in engineering social change for betterment of the society and have been involved in number of projects for upliftment of poor and down trodden, irrespective of religious and regional affiliation and name of RSS is taken with utter respect to and regards by all, including significantly minorities. It is only small group of people with petty political motives and ambitions like Azad, who turn blind eye to the truth and deliberately make false and misleading statements hoping that people will fall prey to their vicious propaganda but actually they make fool of themselves as nobody believes in such rhetoric. They further said RSS has been working for inculcating nationalistic feelings in the masses and untiring efforts to make India strong and united. It is against any sought of violence against humanity and has been educating masses to stand together for cause of nation and national interest, irrespective of religious and regional feelings. Comparing an organisation which is working for upliftment of humanity and patriotism with beastly organisation having no regards for human existence like ISIS, shows the total mind corruption on the part of Congress. Sunil Sethi further said that statement of Ghulam Nabi Azad has not only hurt sentiments of all Indians with nationalistic thinking and patriotism but it is meant to serve the cause of enemies of the country by giving such statement without even understanding it's consequences which was unexpected of a person of his stature. They demanded immediate apology from Azad and Congress party to the whole nation.

Onkar Seth has ridiculed the assertion of Dr. Farooq Abdullah that raising of anti-national slogans would not divide the country

Lotus WebsiteOnkar Seth, the Convenor of the Pardesh BJP Legal and Legislative Cell & Member National Council of Legal Cell has ridiculed the assertion of NC leader Dr. Farooq Abdullah that raising of anti-national slogans would not divide the country. He said that by saying so, Dr. Farooq Abdullah is trying to cover up his own wrongs of the past but the law of the land do not grant immunity for such activities. If such elements are allowed to go scot-free, things can take ugly turn and the messy situation created in Kashmir was the result of the like thinking of the NC leadership, who were guided by more controversial and erroneous feelings, rather than that of unity and integrity of India. Seth alleged that Dr. Farooq Abdullah, by issuing such statements, is encouraging those who are indulging in unlawful activities with a design to have freedom for those playing the game of elements hostile to unity of the country but law of the land do not permit so. Hence, the law must prevail; he asserted and maintained that no country allows such like anti-national hooliganism. Onkar Seth said that it has become a fashion in India to raise anti national slogans for the sake of publicity as the electronic media in particular runs after such episodes without caring for their responsibility towards the society and the nation, which demands that they must be positive in reporting and deliver justice to the fourth pillar of the democracy. Some news channels, for the sake of TRP, forget to differentiate between the good and the bad and highlight such elements and incidents which may prove to be dangerous for the peace and communal harmony in the country. He appealed the people not to get misled by such elements who have least regard for the nation and its interests but indulge in provocation, which should be opposed tooth and nail and all such elements need to be exposed and booked.

BJP objects to presence of Chinese troops and forced occupation of part of Gilgit-Baltistan

Anil Gupta copyThe proposed induction of Chinese troops in Gilgit-Baltistan with the purported intention of securing the China-Pak Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a mere excuse by the Pak government to provide access to the PLA (Peoples Liberation Army of China) in the strategically important area of Gilgit. Pakistan has been committing atrocities on the peace-loving people of Gilgit-Baltistan merely because they are Shias. This was stated by BJP spokesperson Brig Anil Gupta while reacting to the reports of presence of Chinese troops in the said areas. Brig Gupta said that economic exploitation by Pakistan in nexus with China of the mineral and hydro-power rich region is vehemently opposed by the locals whose voice is suppressed by Pakistan by use of brutal military force. Much against their wishes Pakistan has already stationed three independent brigades in the region which should be adequate for the protection of the CPEC. Despite that the willingness of Pak government to allow induction of Chinese troops is perplexing and smells of a sinister design against India. Gilgit-Baltistan is an integral part of the state of Jammu & Kashmir and is under the illegal occupation of Pakistan. “It being a disputed area under Pakistan’s illegal occupation the former has no moral authority to invite foreign troops in the area”, according to Brig Anil Gupta. Bharatiya Janata Party strongly objects to the presence of Chinese troops in the area and expresses solidarity with our brethren in Gilgit-Baltistan as per the press release issued by the Party. Brig Gupta also condemned the Hurriyat for welcoming the decision of Pak government to permit the presence of Chinese troops in POJK and Gilgit-Baltistan which only shows utter disregard to the aspirations and concerns of the people of that area by the Hurriyat. Taking note of another serious development in the area wherein a portion of the territory of Gilgit-Baltistan has been illegally occupied by the neighbouring province of Khyber-Pakhtunwa, Brig Gupta said that it is another attempt to subjugate the Shias and expressed serious concern for the same. The area is reportedly rich in minerals and Chitral Scouts have been deployed in the area to terrorise the locals. The hand-picked Gilgit Administrative Council, a puppet of the Federal Government, has deliberately ignored the incursion much to the annoyance of the local population. Brig Gupta suspected that it may be a part of the bigger game plan of Pakistan to declare the area as its fifth province but warned Pakistan to desist from any such move.

This matter is of serious concern taken up with Deputy Commissioner and Director General of Police by Ramesh Arora and asked them to take strong action against the persons involved in organized Crime of extracting money on the name of selling of arms and procuring armed Licenses for them.

We should require to approach directly to Dy. Commissioner to get armed License or get weapon form authorized shop or can approach Home Department as per requirement. Because no one in public or person otherwise has authority to issue license. And ask the Police and administration to track out all and make end to this type of organized Crime of money extraction from the soldiers or persons belongs to paramilitary forces and others.

Dr. Narinder Singh strongly condemning the utterances of National Conference Working President & former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah

Lotus WebsiteBJP State General Secretary Dr. Narinder Singh, while strongly condemning the utterances of National Conference Working President & former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, said that the NC leader had been most opportunist whose past itself stands witness to his politics of compromise on the so-called principles. Dr. Narinder Singh said that Omar Abdullah today says in public that he will never enter into alliance with BJP and rather he would quit politics than compromising with the honour and dignity of the state, is nothing but a reflection of frustration after NC being given humiliating defeat in the assembly elections. He said that it is most funny that the leaders like Omar Abdullah adopt double standards while in chair and when out of power. “It is not politics aimed at serving the state or its people but a game of opportunism to fulfill lust of power by sacrificing the so-called principles which are remembered only when rejected and shown the door by the people”, said Narinder Singh and reminded that it is the same BJP which was in power when Omar Abdullah enjoyed power as MoS in Atal Behari Vajpayee’s government. He said that Omar Abdullah cannot mislead the people of the state by making false and inflammatory speeches as the people have very sharp memory regarding the past politics of such leaders. Dr. Narinder Singh said that the people of the state, Jammu province in particular, had given mandate to BJP to form the government and our party did nothing wrong to honour the verdict of the people. There is nothing wrong in respecting the mandate given by the people and by making irresponsible statement Omar Abdullah is insulting the will of the voters. Dr. Narinder Singh said that BJP follows the principle of ‘justice to all and appeasement to none’ and the present Prime Minister Narendra Modi too has made it loud and clear with the slogan of “sabka saath sabka vikaas”. He said that BJP is a nationalist party which do not divide the people or exploit them on the basis of region or religion for vote bank politics but stands for unity and integrity of the country and believes in maintaining communal hormony rather than backing anti-national forces.

Hoisting flag will not solve problems But shall firm up identity crucial for addressing them

SS Bijral copyNegating the importance of a flag in a republic, by the politician especially a former CM, is political naivety, commented S.S. Bijral IGP (Rtd), the spokesperson of state BJP. He responded to tweet of NC working President and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah at the micro blogging site Twitter where reacting to HRD Ministry order for hoisting national flag at Central Universities in the country, he said that it will not help to solve the problems of alienation and instil patriotic fervour amongst the youth at large. Bijral said the Central University at Jammu is hoisting National Flag from day one of its functioning. It’s mockery that essentiality of flying national flag at Central University was required to be highlighted to one who had proudly served under National Flag as MoS External Affairs in NDA govt at Centre lead by then PM Vajpayee. The NC leadership would do well to worry about his party alienation from masses when its strength is retrogressively dwindling and come to only 15 from long enjoyed absolute majority. The situation, political and economic, prevailing in the state is direct result of misrule and en mass corruption fostered upon people for long by NC and Congress with title of second most corrupt state after Bihar earned under their rule. Having been worst exploited politically for personal aggrandisement, the awakened masses routed both Congress and National Conference parties in 2014 putting up their trust in People Democratic Party and Bharatiya Janata Party for governance and development. It would serve best the cause of National Conference and also of the state if NC party leadership instead of raising sensitive and critical issues of National flag and appear kidding, introspect about causes for which wisened voters of state rejected them en mass at the hustling. National flag will not solve the problems but shall firm up the identity of ‘those served’ and ‘serving’ for deservingly addressing the problems.

12670246_944209822327383_4392561429622069675_nBJP Senior leader & Convener of Tawi Andolan Chander Mohan Sharma (Adv.) has demanded strict implementation of all the green laws in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Addressing a press conference, Chander Mohan Sharma said that large scale deforestation, uncontrolled excavation, mining etc and illegal occupation of forest land, grabbing of land pertaining to the water bodies has put the state to danger of devastating floods, cloudbursts, and other natural calamities. The present situation calls for drastic and coordinated but prompt action for removing all sort of encroachments, constructions, occupations and intrusions over the forest land and within and around all rivers and water bodies to save the environment, ecology and the very human existence. “Ecological deterioration, brutal exploitation of natural resources and uncontrolled constructions are dangerous for human beings and its perpetrators and violators are bigger enemies than even those indulging in terrorism as they are enemies not only of humanity but of all living beings and nature. The Uttrakhand is a glaring example of this lapse. Just nearly two years back, state faced a flood fury attributable to all such lapses but neither the government nor the public has learnt any lesson. Sharma expressed shock that such environmental and ecological issues and impending danger remained upto paper and file work and it was never taken seriously. He said that when the formation of popular government and political agenda is being discussed, the environment and ecology should also find place in the coalition partners’ political and governance agenda. Recently, media has reported that Jammu Kashmir Police has not been taking cognizance of such incidents of encroachments, land grabbing of forest land in Bhatindi and Chhatta areas. Appreciating the retrieval of some Forest land recently by the Forest Authorities, Sharma appealed the Governor for his intervention and to direct the administration to strictly observe the Green Laws. Sharma also appreciated the programme of extension of new flyover upto Jammu Airport and from Bikram Chowk to Ambphalla at BC Road. BJP Working Committee Members Subash Gupta and Surinder Sharma were also present in the press conference.

Self-attestation will be boon to the public: Balbir

Balbir Ram Rattan
Stating that the recent approval granted in favour of ‘Self attestation policy” for its implementation in our state will prove to be beneficial to maximum population across Jammu and Kashmir, BJP State Spokesperson Balbir Ram Rattan said that it is yet one more gift to the people from Narendra Modi led BJP government at the centre. Balbir said that under this policy, no one will be required to get his or her documents attested by a gazetted officer or run after notary for getting affidavits for various purposes. He said that in the past, it had been mandatory requirement that every one applying for any advertised post or government related work was to produce /enclose the copies of the documents duly attested by a gazetted officer or notary. On complying with that requirement, the public was put to great inconvenience and hardship. The BJP Spokesperson said that the students, unemployed youth were affected by the requirement of getting documents attested and even more affected were the people living in remote and far flung areas, where one had to first look for some gazetted officer in local vicinity or travel long distance to get documents attested. It also caused financial burden and wastage of time. Terming the policy as also reflection of the concern of the Prime Minister Narenda Modi towards the common citizens, Balbir Ram Rattan said that the public will not have to face any more harassment on account of the running after the gazetted officers and also it will save their money and time. He expressed hope that the policy will be implemented in Jammu and Kashmir at the earliest to enable the people to attest their documents themselves.

BJP rebuffs Harshdev for his false allegations: Balbir

Balbir Ram RattanBJP State Spokesperson Balbir Ram Rattan, while rubbishing the utterances of Panthers Party Chairman Harsh Dev Singh, said that BJP has never dented pride and honour of Dogras and the party’s fundamental ideological moor in the state is embedded in the Dogra psyche and other nationalist people of the state. He said that it was Panthers Party, which always deceived the people of Jammu province and that is why it was rejected by the people of Jammu. The people had very bad experience as their performance as MLAs disillusioned them.
The Spokesperson said that infact, it had been Harsh Dev Singh as three times MLA and Cabinet Minister, who did nothing to protect the pride and honour of Dogras and their culture. BJP, on the other hand, pursued Jammu centric policies and while in the Government, tried its best to do justice to the people of Jammu province, who had been deprived of their genuine rights and entitlements in the past. Balbir Ram Rattan reminded Panthers leader that it was during BJP-led Government at the centre that Dogri language got due recognition and was included in the 8th Schedule of the Indian Constitution and broadcasting of Dogri News got commenced on Doordorshan. He further said that work for restoration and protection of Mubarak Mandi Heritage complex got most priority during PDP-BJP coalition. It was again BJP, which installed the statues of Maharaja Hari Singh, the great Dogra ruler, while it was heading Jammu Municipal Corporation in 2005. Balbir Ram Rattan said that it seems that the Chairman of Panthers Party is ignorant of the facts that BJP had launched a long drawn agitation in Jammu during early 1990s for establishment of VDCs and subsequently as partner of NDA government enhanced the emoluments of SPOs from rupees 3000 to 6000; announced package for refugees; made provision of five marla plots at safer places for border people; launched PM Fasal Bima Yojna for farmers and numerous welfare schemes for women and the unemployed youth. He said that during the 10 months of PDP-BJP coalition government, BJP ensured equitable distribution of development projects and funds for all the regions of the state, it got sanctioned number of prestigious institutions like AIIMS, IIT, IIM, IHM and many other infrastructure development projects for Jammu region from the BJP led Government at the centre.

Statement of Adv. Chander Mohan Sharma, Convenor of Tawi Andolan and Namami Gange Project (BJP)

Chander Mohan SharmaTawi Andolan expresses its deep concern over the slackness of previous state governments in dealing with land encroachment by the unscrupulous persons within and around Tawi river basin and banks, water bodies and forests. He said whenever, any serious attempt is made to retrieve such grabbed land, the land mafia attack the staff and even the police parties accompanying them. Terming the brutal attack on the staff and police party by the miscreants as an act of highhandedness and violence and such acts are condemnable. I strongly condemn the assault on police party and damaging police vehicle by land mafia at village Kernel-e-Chak of Nikki Tawi area of Jammu. Such Highhandedness and brutal lawlessness should not be tolerated and govt. should take strict action against the culprits. Through this media conference, I express that such Gunda Gardi can demoralize police force which is already engaged in combat operations against Terrorism. In view of the Pathankot Terrorist attack, the state law enforcing agencies must weed out such element which provoked attack on the police. Through this media conference I also condemn the action of Zulfikar Ali, Cabinet Minister for his support and encouragement to said land mafia responsible for prime land encroachment in Nikki Tawi area. I want to remind Mr. Zulfikar Ali that coalition Govt is functioning upon two Fundamentals i.e. Good Governance and Development. Encouraging land mafia and illegal occupants of state land and River Tawi basins is against these basic principles. There are number of directions issued by High Court of J&K in various Writ Petitions that all Encroachements from water bodies like Jhelum, Wuller Lake, Dal Lake, Tawi River, and Chenab be removed. No Minister of the Government can trample the “ Agenda of Alliance” wherein it has been cogent that river Tawi will be developed on the pattern of holy Ganga. With illegal occupations on the banks and basin of River Taw, this joint commitment of BJP-PDP cannot be achieved. Removal of the illegal encroachments from the state land is necessary, so that land can be used for construction of big projects like IIT and IIM etc, as the land is nearer to Jammu City, National Highway, Airport and Railways, hence it is suitable for housing big projects. Tawi is lifeline of people of Jammu region and is regarded as Surajputri (Goddess). Beside this, the river has got tremendous Potential of attracting Tourists and Pilgrims. I praise Ministry of forest for recovering huge forest land from land mafia at various places in the state. I also praise District Administration Jammu for this bold initiative to get state land free from illegal occupation. ERA Department also deserves appreciation for getting prime land vacated from illegal occupants. Tawi Andolan does not object to providing accommodation to the genuine homeless people at some proper place and under some proper planning. I demand police action against all illegal occupants of the state land who have come from Bangladesh , Myanmar and other part of our own state unreasonably. At last I pay rich tributes to the martyrs of Pathankot and the Soldiers killed in avalanches in Ladakh. Others who are present here namely Subash Gupta (Co-Convenor), Surinder Sharma, Prof. Rajinder Mishra, Dr. Prem sharma, J.K. Chopra, Ravi Sharma and Raj Kumar .

Opposition must introspect and accept reality: BJP

Balbir Ram RattanThe leaders of opposition parties, who always remain desperate to hold the present PDP-BJP coalition government responsible for every misdeed, need to first introspect as to what they are uttering keeping in mind that this dispensation has been in power for just nine months while their parties were running the state affairs for decades together after independence. This was stated by BJP State Spokesperson Balbir Ram Rattan while advising these leaders to have patience and honour the mandate of people, who have shown them the door for their misdeeds and duplicity. Balbir Ram Rattan said it is most unfortunate that the top leaders of NC, Congress and Panthers party have made it a routine to blame the state’s PDP-BJP coalition government for everything while the fact is that these parties were running the past governments in coalition or on their own and whatever the state and the people are facing today are the results of the misdoings of the past and cannot be accurated in a week or few months. “The extent of desperation among these leaders can be well judged from the fact that they issue statements on daily basis, which do not have any significance or relevance and made just for the sake of remaining in news”, Balbir said and added that opposition parties must follow political ethics while going public. Balbir Ram Rattan reminded these parties that the state had earned the distinction of being second most corrupt state in India in the past but during the last 9 months not even a single case of corruption has been noticed, it is one of the greatest achievement of PDP-BJP coalition and the opposition must accept this reality. Not only this, hundreds of kanals of forest land has been retrieved from encroachers, which was illegally occupied in the past when Congress or NC were in power. Is it not a step towards good governance ? Balbir told these parties that MNREGA, Solar Lights Project, PMGSY, Roshni Scheme etc. were undertaken during the earlier governments and hence a number of related scams took place when it was NC or Congress or Panthers in coalition. Not only in central CAG report but J&K CAG too highlighted many scams and shortcomings of previous regimes, when thousand of crores of rupees remained blocked or unutilized leading to halting of various projects. JKCA scam, illegal occupation of forest land, making transfers in education department as an industry, promoting nepotism etc. did take place during the previous governments and the people are well aware of it. “The PDP-BJP coalition government got liabilities to the tune of thousands of crores as gift from the previous government and it is working towards bringing the state on rails”, said Balbir and appealed the opposition parties to support the government if they really want peace, progress, development and prosperity in the state.
