Congress Murdered Democracy to remain in power: Dr. Anil Jain
Congress murdered democracy for its lust to remain in power, this was stated by BJP National General Secretary, while he addressed a Press Conference at the party headquarter, Trikuta Nagar. He was here at Jammu in connection with the observance of “Save Democracy Day” by J&K BJP.
While The then Prime Minister of country, Indira Gandhi ditched the Nation by imposing “Emergency “in the country. All the stalwarts of politics as well as social activists were arrested and jailed at the convenience of then government, whereas the media was gagged. A black page in the book of Nation. Emergency was not a period but a cold blooded murder of all the democratic voices of the Nation. For shielding the mass Corruption in the elections, formed the basis of imposition of emergency in the Nation by a virtual Dictator. BJP has decided to observe the day of imposition of emergency as black day across the Nation to denounce the dreaded act by Congress. This day is being observed in every district of the Nation, he informed.
The recent statements given by Congress leaders Soz and Azad clearly showcase the mindset of Congress. They support the stone pelters and virtually shield the terrorists and their supporters, which is not at all good for the country. Congress and its supported fragments are today turning into a group of “Pakistan favouring faction”. BJP totally denounces these anti National acts. BJP will always expose these elements.
The aim of BJP is to take the Nation on the path of “Param Vaibhav” making it numero uno in every field.
He also dared Congress National President Rahul Gandhi to take action on Soz for his mis-writings in his just launched book. He said that Congress has to give reply on this matter.
He said that BJP was fully committed to the Agenda of Alliance and Centre government fully contributed to the development projects. He also said that BJP has not left its any single core issue but was serving according to the “Coalition Dharma”.
He said that the accession of J&K state with the rest of India is full and final and no body can dare challenge the status and BJP is full committed to it.
He also praised the people of J&K while saying that he has a rich experience of working in the state of Jammu & Kashmir while working as the Seh-Prabhari of the state.

The function started with the showering of flower petals on the portraits of great personalities, Jai Prakash Narayan and Nana ji Deshmukh.
While addressing the gathering, Anil Jain said that the “Save Democracy Day” is observed by the party as the ill decision of Congress government clamped the Emergency to plug the freedom of expressions, while curbing every type of civil liberty and snatching the fundamental rights of the people. He alleged that Congress always preferred its own interests over the National interest to remain in power. He said that the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi when feared that she will be ousted from power by the people, imposed emergency to become a dictator.
Dr. Jain said that former PM Jawahar Lal Nehru in his friendship for former CM Sheikh Abdullah and grudge for Maharaja Hari Singh harmed the cause of Jammu & Kashmir.
He said that previous to 2014 India was thudded with scams and now due to able leadership of Modi ji, India is on the path of “numero uno” in every field around the world. He said that BJP works with the aim of “Antodaya” to uplift every neglected person or section while believing in the sayings of “Vasudev Kutumbhakam” and “Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah”. He stressed that our aim is to take the country on “Param Vaibhav” and emphasized the importance of dedication for country in our hearts.
Dr. Jain in his address termed the people of Jammu as vibrant, emotional and energetic and said that he always felt good while he served as the Seh-Prabhari for the J&K state.
He said that BJP works for Nation and Congress for power and for doing so it always murdered the democracy be it in its own party or in government citing the examples of making Pt. Nehru as president of Congress party in place of Netaji Subhash Chander Bose or making of Pt. Nehru as PM of India in place of Sardar Patel.
Jugal Kishore Sharma alleged that the wrong policies of Congress government led to the present problems in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. He said that Congress always misused the official machinery for its own hunger of power and serving the single family at the cost of other National heroes, who were thoughtfully ignored from the history.
Kavinder Gupta recalled the memories of emergency period and the its aftermath on the civil society, especially the crackdown on the Nationalistic population to curb every opposing voice. He said that the arrogance of Congress party led it to take the decision of imposition of “Emergency” in the country.

He said that BJP feels itself to be answerable to the people of the state and especially to those who have voted for the better future of the state.
Khajuria pointed out that unlike the previous governments where one hand wasn’t ever aware of the action being taken out by other hand and what to talk of the general masses, BJP government stands committed to complete transparency in all the things. This is the reason BJP decided to take its works among the masses on the completion of 3 years of alliance government in the state.

He stressed that the massive turnout in the rally is itself a testimony to the faith, the people of the region have developed in their own party.
Khajuria said that the leaders of the opposition have nothing concrete to counter BJP on ground. He said that opposition is contributing nothing, as far as the development of the region or the state is concerned. He said that this is the reason they (opposition) are trying to play with fire while flaring out the emotional outbreaks and playing with the people’s sentiments.
Khajuria also advised the opposition leaders to do constructive politics and put forth the role of effective opposition for the betterment of state and the region. He further asked the opposition leader to concentrate energy on the positive approach to the people’s issues.
BJP State Spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta expressed his anguish on the large scale grabbing of government land including that of Forest, that under the control of custodian department, JDA and other state authorities by the people with vested interests and those with special motives to change the demography of Jammu region. “Number of such cases of land grabbing can be witnessed in Bathindi, Sunjwan, Sidhra, Kotwal area etc. in the vicinity of Jammu city and in and around other towns of Jammu province,” he said. He told that in most of the cases the influential people and the musclemen are behind such acts. The Spokesperson quoted the news item appeared in one of the daily newspaper, published from Jammu wherein a Minister is involved in the attempt of grabbing two kanal of prime land worth crores of rupees by musclemen and some of the government authorities, at Bahu Herbal Eco-Park, Mohamaya Forests located on the main Sidhra bypass National Highway.

Prof. Virender said in the Bantalab and Kotwal area falling under the Marh constituency lot of Custodian land in the possession of allottees or falling vacant is being sold to the people with vested interests. The government land in Bathindi, Sunjwan, Sidhra, Majalta, Chawadi and in some other areas around Jammu city have been occupied or being occupied by the land mafia with the connivance of the authorities. He added that such act of land grabbing with Jammu people remaining mute spectators going to turn Jammu city vulnerable to the anti-national forces. He said that the situation poses great challenge to the security and integrity not only of Jammu province, but whole of Jammu and Kashmir state and should be a cause of great concern for the Govt. of India.
