Farooq’s statements pushing Kashmiri youth towards separatism, terrorism: BJP

Brig. Anil GuptaIn a press statement issued by Bharatiya Janata Party, it has expressed fear that wavering stand and conflicting statements of Dr. Farooq Abdullah, MP and President of Jammu & Kashmir National Conference are pushing the Kashmiri youth towards extremism. Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of the party is of the view that, “The recent statements of Dr. Abdullah who is perceived as a pro-establishment politician by the Kashmiri youth have added to the confusion in the young minds who are already faced with a dilemma of politics versus religion. Let down by politicians like Sh. Farooq Abdullah and other members of his bandwagon, they are gravitating towards radicalization. Terrorists like Zakir Musa are emerging as new icons. The reality is that disillusioned Kashmiri youth is looking for direction. They want to join the national mainstream but when leaders like Farooq Abdullah parrot the Pakistani leaders and make pro-Pakistan statements, they are compelled to re-think.” Ridiculing his statement that POJK belongs to Pakistan, Brig Gupta questioned Dr. Farooq to clarify as to why his father Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah refused to allot evacuee properties in Jammu to POJK refugees on the plea that one-day POJK will be liberated and all these people will go back to their houses and vice-versa? Why have 24 seats been earmarked in J&K Assembly for POJK and remain officially vacant as per Section 48 of the Jammu and Kashmir constitution? Why are they not being allotted to POJK refugees or Kashmiri Pandits? The fact is that of late Dr. Farooq is acting as a ‘voice of Pakistan’ in the Valley. After the Prime Minister of Pakistan denounced the concept of “Azadi” for Kashmir, he also came out with a ditto statement unmindful of his earlier statements on the subject. He is repeatedly talking of Pakistan as a nuclear nation, giving credence to the statements of Pakistani political and military leadership resorting to ‘nuclear blackmail’ of India, conveniently forgetting Kargil operations and recent surgical strikes which were conducted in the backdrop of a nuclear Pakistan, reminded Brig Gupta. Nuclear weapons are weapons of deterrence and not war-fighting, Dr. Abdullah should stop creating a fear psychosis among the common masses, advised the spokesperson. The lingering fear of Kashmiri speaking Muslims becoming a minority and Sheikh Abdullah virtually losing the race to Premiership to some non-Kashmiri speaking leader made Sheikh to convince the then Prime Minister Nehru, to announce a unilateral ceasefire, when Indian Army was poised to liberate the remaining parts of the state, resulting in the creation of PoJK. With PoJK premier Raja Farooq Haider Khan demanding reunification with India, the same fear is haunting his son Farooq now and that is why he wants POJK to remain permanently with Pakistan, apprehended Brig Gupta. Rather than liberating POJK as promised by his father and the unanimous resolution passed by Indian Parliament, Dr. Abdullah has meekly submitted to the Pak narrative which has added to the confusion of Kashmiri youth, reiterated the spokesperson.

POJK Belongs to India and India Belongs to The People of POJK: Sh. Vibodh Gupta

1Vibodh Terms Farooq a Player Who Always Plays With People's Sentiments

As part of his mission to remain connected with the ground , MLC Vibodh Gupta conducted series of meetings at Thandikasi followed by Irwan Khetar and Panjgrian in Rajouri. While addressing the gatherings in these villages Vibodh Gupta said that our collation government is committed to peace, progress, and prosperity in all the three regions of the state. In last three years, Jammu and Kashmir has witnessed tremendous development in every sphere of life. He added, “NC-Congress could not tolerate the smooth working of BJP-PDP collation in the state and out of frustration their leaders are making unnecessary statements to provoke and misguide public especially the youth of Jammu and Kashmir”. 

While referring to the recent statement of Dr. Farooq Abdullah wherein he said that POJK is the part of Pakistan. Vibodh said that this statement manifests Abdullah’s frustration of being out of the power and now he wants to grab power in whatever way he can. He termed Dr. Farooq a player who always plays with the sentiments of common man. Sheikh Abdullah was part of the Constituent Assembly which has kept the provision of 25 seats reserved for the representatives of POJK. With this vague statement, Dr. Farooq has not only hurt the sentiments of people of Jammu and Kashmir but also double-crossed his own father and party. However, it has been a trend in Abdullah family to take U-turns. Sheikh Abdullah and his colleagues also changed their stand on Jammu and Kashmir accession with India overnight. Farooq and Omar Abdulla are carrying on his legacy of taking u-turns forward. He added India’s position on this issue is very very clear like a writing on the stone wall. In 1994 Indian parliament passed a unanimous resolution, clearly mentioning that Pakistan occupied Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India's territory. This statement is disgraceful and goes against the resolution unanimously passed by the Indian parliament. He added that Farooq saheb is one of the most senior leaders of J&K and such amateur and reckless statements don't suit his personality and experience. The rate of human rights violation in POJK is very high and BJP is most concerned about it. In recent past, we have also witnessed protests in POJK against Pakistan. I humbly request Dr. Abdullah not to make this issue a political one and to stand in support of our brothers and sisters living on the other side. He very categorically made it clear that POJK belongs to India and India belongs to people of POJK. While speaking on the same lines BJP senior leader Rajinder Gupta added that such statements are provocative in nature and need to be checked. He also added that the twin border districts of Rajouri and Poonch also witnessed tremendous development in last three years. We are committed to fulfilling our promises made three years before. Speaking on the occasions Atam Gupta also condemned the statement of Dr. Farooq Abdullah and requested him not to play with the sentiments of the common man for the sake of power.

Rana’s accusations far from truth and unsubstantiated: BJP

Brig. Anil GuptaDevoid of any substantial issues, the National Conference has now started a campaign of falsehood and accusations by deliberately ignoring facts to mislead the people of state according to Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party. Exposing the NC President Devender Singh Rana who accused BJP of betraying LOC, IB dwellers and POJK refugees, the spokesperson said that he should have verified the facts and checked with the Divisional Commissioner, Home Secretary and Chief Secretary who are fully aware of the measures being taken. Bharatiya Janata Party is totally committed towards fulfilment of the promises made to the residents of the border belt and the Modi government has already sanctioned construction of 4700 community bunkers and 19000 individual bunkers in addition to the bunkers to be constructed by state government. These bunkers are to be built in all the five districts of Jammu region which are located on the IB and LOC. District wise allotment of bunkers has been done based on the population of each district. The entire cost of the project including acquisition of the land is being borne by the central government. The bunkers will have cooking and toilet facilities, in other words these will be underground living units said Brig Anil Gupta. In addition, monetary compensation to the victims of cross-border firing is being paid at par with the LOC victims, adequate compensation is also being paid for the loss/injury of cattle and damage to the crop has also been included in the new Crop Insurance Policy. Brig Gupta challenged the NC president to list even a single measure taken by his party when NC was ruling. As regards 5 marla plots, the initial promise was made by Ghulam Nabi Azad and Omar Abdullah. Both, used it as an election plank and failed to deliver thereafter. It goes to the credit of BJP that it pursued the case and got even land earmarked for the purpose in Hiranagar tehsil, but had to abandon the same due to the proposal not finding favour with the Army and BSF as it would affect the security of border villages. Does the NC advocate to ignore the advice of security forces who are responsible for border management and its defence, questioned Brig Gupta? Referring to the one time settlement of POJK refugees, Brig Gupta said that Omar led NC-Congress government did send a proposal to the UPA government at Delhi amounting to Rs. 9025 crore but failed to get the same despite being a partner of UPA and his father being a central minister at that time. It is for the people to decide as to who cheated them and not Mr Rana, said the spokesperson. The BJP government has at least made the beginning by allotting Rs.2000 crore and each affected family has benefitted by 5.5 lakh bringing cheers to their faces. Rana needs to explain to the people as to why his leader failed to get them 25 lakh each rather than accusing the BJP for callousness and duplicity. It is the NC which has always played the vote bank politics and politics of deceit, opportunism, communalism and discrimination clarified Brig Gupta and the people will not easily forget the decades of their misrule and poor governance.

Prof. Virender lambasts Surjewala’s statement

Prof. Virender GuptaBJP State Spokesperson in response to the statement of National Communication Incharge of Congress Party, Mr. Randeep Surjewala said that Congress party instead of behaving as responsible largest opposition party has been acting like a party with destructive politics. It criticizes every action of the Modi’s government, whether it pertains to development works or other various projects of social welfare initiated by the Govt. or it concerns country’s foreign policy including relationship with Pakistan or the policy to deal with terrorism. The negative policy of the Congress would not pay it in log run, Prof. Virender said. He condemned the statement of Surjewala that Centre has no policy on J&K and questioned him about the policy pursued by Congress party since the Jammu and Kashmir acceded to India. He held Congress party responsible for the present state of affairs. By patronizing the separatists and the communal elements of Kashmir valley Congress has committed a great blunder and worked against the interests of the country, the Spokesperson said. He stated that it was Congress leadership that backed Sheikh Abdullah’s desire to have an autonomous state within Indian Union while restricting Union powers to only three subjects, i.e. foreign affairs, defence and communication, by incorporating Article 370 in Indian constitution and by its unconstitutional act of imposing Article 35A by presidential order. He further said that it was another blunder act of Congress leadership to stop the advancement of Indian Army which was engaged in vacation of the parts of Jammu & Kashmir from Pakistan as invader and took the matter to the security council. The Spokesperson reminded Congress party of its wrong adventure to install Sheikh back on power in Jammu and Kashmir, it in 1975 stopped the process of complete integration of State with India, started by Gulam Mohd. Sadiq and Bakshi Gulam Mohd., that reversed the clock. He asked Congress party that “was it not responsible for the upsurge of separatists movement in 1990 and 2010 when it was sharing power with the National Conference in the state”. He said that Congress was on the saddle power both at the Centre and in the state when number of mosques and centres came up to spread Wahabism and Salafism, the pan Islamic movements that resulted into present turmoil with an objective to create independent Islamic State. Prof. Virender advised Congress party to realize than Jammu & Kashmir is a national issue and all the well meaning people, groups and parties should jointly work to bring the people of Kashmir in the national main stream and support the efforts of the party that is in power, instead of indulging in its criticism. He said that efforts of the government depends on its judgement of the situation being at the helm of the affairs, both hard and soft policy are in the direction to achieve the target of bringing situation to normalcy,

Masters of politics of deceit try to shift the blame on Centre: BJP

Brig. Anil Gupta“National Conference and its leadership has mastered the art of ‘politics of deceit’ and ironically is now trying to shift the blame on Central government to mislead the people of the state and to cover up their own follies and acts of deceit done by the party ever since its inception,” stated Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party in a press release issued by the party. Contradicting the contention of NC President Dr Farooq Abdullah that the continuous indifferent & rigidity of the successive central governments is responsible for the feeling of estrangement among the people of the state, Brig Gupta questioned Dr. Abdullah to explain to the people if it was possible for the central government to remain indifferent towards the state without the willing cooperation and connivance of the local power brokers? For all the years NC was in power it either enjoyed the blessings of the central government or was in alliance with it. Wasn’t NC responsible for the acts of omission and commission of the central government being fully associated with it? At that time for the lust of power the Abdullahs kept singing praise of the Central government and now when they are out of power they are shifting the entire blame on the Centre is not only misleading but self-contradictory said Brig Gupta. Listing their acts of deceit, Brig Gupta stated that it all began with the launching of ‘Quit Kashmir’ movement in May 1946, followed by forced exodus of Maharaja Hari Singh in June 1949 by Sheikh Abdullah leading to him becoming the virtual ruler of the state. A master stroke of deceit because the Sheikh had sought royal pardon in 1946 and promised to be never disloyal to the Maharaja. Then followed 1953 when he stabbed the government of India in its back and was arrested for acts of treason and secession. The return to power in 1975 as Chief Minister with the support of Congress was another masterstroke of ‘politics of deceit’ played with the Kashmiris. Farooq Abdullah, the heir of Sheikh had further honed this art and used it repeatedly to deceive the innocent Kashmiris. In the 1983 assembly elections Farooq Abdullah and his party sought support of all anti-national and secessionist organisations operating in the Valley at that time. NC sought the support of these organisations on the plea that the ensuing elections were to be treated as a fight between all Kashmiris on the one hand and India as a sovereign country on the other represented by Congress (I). The result of the election for the first time resulted in the political polarization of votes on communal lines. NC won all the 46 seats from Kashmir. In the subsequent election to the state assembly same Farooq and his party aligned with the same very Congress, is this not politics of deceit, Farooq should explain to the Kashmiris demanded the spokesperson. Who can forget his sudden resignation in 1990 leaving the state rudderless for 48 hrs leading to massacre and mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits? “When Kashmir was Burning, Farooq was Londoning”, lamented Brig Gupta.

Sports teach discipline, endurance: Sh. Yudhvir Sethi

Taekwando Champions honoured for winning silverTaekwando Champions honoured for winning silver BJP Vice President Yudhvir Sethi said that sports teach discipline and endurance which is why everyone must take to any game of his or her choice and pursue it passionately. He was speaking after honouring young players who bagged silver in Common Wealth Taekwando championship 2017 held at Canada Montreal and returned to Jammu . Yudhvir Sethi honoured three players who represented J&K under 30 years category and one who represented J&K above 30 years category. Those who bagged silver and were honoured include champions Narainder Singh, Anil Khajuria, Anchal Kumar and Atul Pangotra. These players had earlier also bagged medals for India in Taekwando Championships held in other places. Speaking on the occasion Yudhvir Sethi said, “unlike many other youth activities, sports can provide instant feedback about how effective a choice was. A student athlete who practices instead of playing video games will improve faster than one who makes the opposite decision. Although this is also true of studying and academic performance, the gap between decision and report card time is often too long for a child to make a meaningful connection”. Asking students to play sports instead of spending more time indoors, the BJP leader said discipline is one of the most effective tools people can use to reach their goals. Sports provide a vivid demonstration of how applying will and discipline during practice can help an athlete reach his/her goals in competition. Students who see discipline's roles in achieving their athletic goals are more likely to apply discipline to other goals, he asserted.

BJPHRC strongly condemn Gowhar’s Killing

Lotus Logo copyAt party’s state headquarters, BJP Human Rights Cell State Convenor Prof. P.L. Kaul alongwith its Co-Convenor Vijender Singh Dutta and Executive Members Vinay Pandoh and Rohit Gupta expressed grave anguish and condemned the brutal killing of young and dynamic leader Gowhar Hussain Bhat District President of BJYM Shopian who was killed y terrorists in Shopian district of South Kashmir. This heinous crime perpetrated by those elements trying to disturb the peace in the valley will not be tolerated and they would be dealt with sternly. The martyrdom of Gowhar will not go waste, as he was working with a missionary zeal to restore place in Kashmir valley and was an inspiration for other youths of Kashmir in revolting against terror. Prof. Kaul said that BJP Human Rights activists resolve to carry forward the mission of putting a last nail in the coffin of the militancy sponsored by the Pakistan in Kashmir. This speaks that terrorists and their sympathisers are is great desperation after seeing BJP’s increasing activities for bringing peace and normalcy in the valley. By such attacks BJP activists will not be cowed down and rather it would give further impetus to resolve to work hard to bring Kashmir out of the present crisis and take it to the path of development. Prof. Kaul urged the government to ensure proper security of all its BJP leaders working in valley. Frustrated militants and their sympathisers with their cowardly acts have lost all the sense of humanity murdering both “Kashmiryat and Insaniyat” and are averse to the peace and development in valley. These people want unrest to continue in valley, but they will never succeed in their mission and it is not going to happen now, said Prof. Kaul and his team. Entire nation is with the bereaved family who have lost their brave son who has given his life in restoring peace of Kashmir valley. Party stands firmly with the family of martyr Gowhar Bhat in this hour of immense grief and shock.

Prof. Virender Gupta welcomed the forthcoming visit of new interlocutor

Prof. Virender GuptaState BJP Spokesperson, Prof. Virender Gupta welcomed the forthcoming visit of new interlocutor, Dineshwar Sharma to hold sustainable dialogue in Jammu and Kashmir at Srinagar. Though the separatists, state as well as Centre Congress leaders and National Conference have raised doubts about the outcome of the present exercise but Sharma has expressed his optimism and confidence to break the ice. Prof. Virender appreciated Mr. Sharma’s statement that he would put his serious efforts to bring the peace in the Valley and told that one should refrain from fishing in the desert. The Spokesperson said that present efforts by the Government of India are aimed to reach to a permanent solution of the Jammu & Kashmir issue and it cannot be equated to the previous efforts during Congress government at the Centre which lacked the courage and conviction to implement the recommendations of the interlocutors appointed by it or those of working groups constituted by it and the words of Mr. Dineshwar Sharma “his efforts have to be judged with sincerity and not through the prism of the past”. Prof. Virender refuted the statement that the present dialogue process by Modi government is to hoodwink the international community and their pessimism about the outcome. He added that present dialogue would surely stand to the expectations of Prime Minister’s speech on August 15, on Independence Day, “Na gaali se, nag goli se, parivartan hoga gale logaane se”, i.e. “neither the abuses nor the bullets can bring change in Kashmir, but it shall only by embracing the people.” The State Spokesperson said that it is hoped that the interlocutor, Mr. Dineshwar Sharma would take comprehensive view of the situation prevailing in Jammu and Kashmir and would address the grievances of the people of Jammu region and those of Ladakh region who have always been discriminated in the last 70 years because of the Kashmiri domination and have been feeling neglected in political, administrative and financial sectors. He added that the solution to the Jammu and Kashmir should be such that it can address the aspirations of all the three regions of the state and address the issues pertaining to Kashmiri Pandits who faced large scale exodus from the valley.

It is NC’s loyalty to people of state that swings like pendulum and not Modi’s K-policy: Brig Gupta

Brig. Anil GuptaResponding to the statement of NC President Dr Farooq Abdullah that Modi’s Kashmir policy has been swinging like a pendulum, Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of BJP stated, “The Modi Government’s K-policy is as steadfast as a rock. In fact, prior to this during the UPA regime, which included NC, there was no policy to deal with Kashmir except the “policy of appeasement” which only helped in filling the pockets of the power brokers. Money was used to buy peace without addressing the genuine grievances of the people.” The appointment of Dineshwar Sharma as Special Representative of the Government of India to carry forward the sustained dialogue process by granting him the status of a Cabinet Secretary shows the sincerity of the Modi Government in finding a long term and lasting solution for return of peace and normalcy to trouble torn J&K, said Brig Gupta. Exposing the inherent contradiction within the NC, Brig Gupta highlighted the tweet of Omar Abdullah made immediately after the appointment of Special Representative wherein he welcomed the aspect of mandate given to him, “One can’t get everything. So far now we’ll take what we can get. More imp than the person is the mandate and absence of pre-conditions.” But Farooq stated yesterday in Tangdhar, “So essentially when the mandate given to Sharma is not clearly specified, then what the fun in having deliberations with him is?” It obviously is an afterthought and exposes the nexus between the Hurriyat and NC. There was little choice left with NC but to backtrack after the Hurriyat declined to join the talks and also clearly highlights as to from where do they get their orders like the Hurriyat, blamed Brig Gupta. The fact is that the NC leaders have no genuine sympathies for the Kashmiris and shed crocodile tears to mislead them through falsehood for the sake of their political survival. Their promises and falsehood keep vacillating depending on whether they are in power or out of it, rued the spokesperson. “It is your loyalty to the people of the state that keeps swinging like a pendulum and not Modi’s K-policy,” retorted Brig Gupta. The appointment of Dineshwar Sharma is not mired in any controversy but is a fig of imagination of those leaders who want to derail the peace process even before it has begun. Clarifying that MOS (PMO) is being misquoted, Brig Gupta said, “what the MOS had said was that like a political party appoints a spokesperson by name and thereafter whatever the spokesperson states is treated as party line, similarly the Central Government has now appointed by name a Special Representative with the rank of Cabinet Secretary to carry forward the sustained dialogue process initiated by the Home Minister. He never said that Dineshwar Sharma has been appointed as a spokesperson,” stated Brig Gupta. As far as discussing the report of Padgaonkar in Parliament is concerned, the spokesperson said that the behaviour of father-son duo at that crucial juncture and their lust for power at the cost of the Kashmiris was thoroughly exposed when they did not utter a single word against the inaction of UPA government and continued to cling to their chairs for thirty months after the Report was submitted. The people of Kashmir had since become wise of the political gimmicks of Abdullah dynasty to remain in power and dismissed them by voting against them, said Brig Gupta. The need of the hour is that all those who are genuinely interested in the welfare of the people of the state and want the peace to return must give up blame game and interact with the Special Representative of the government with open mind, suggested Brig Gupta.

Harinder said that Stone-pelting incidents in Kashmir were reduced to 1/4th of the previous year from 2683 (Nov 15-Oct 16) to 639 (Nov 16 to July 2017) as demonetization struck a severe blow to terrorists by clamping down on their funds and militants in Kashmir lost access to all their cash reserves and their desperation was evident in bank robbery attempts. He said that in a surgical strike on shell companies, 2.24 lakh companies were struck off. Harinder further said that demonetization led to a huge increase in tax compliance, which will not only ensure equitable taxation, but also help Government devote more resources to poverty alleviation and creation of infrastructure like roads, railways, houses, etc., he added.

State Bharatiya Janata Party has taken strong note of statement of state Advocate General in interview with The Hindu

Sunil SethiState Bharatiya Janata Party has taken strong note of statement of state Advocate General in interview with The Hindu which was published and in which distorted and misleading information has been passed about Art 35 A of the constitution of India. Instead of arguing in the Supreme Court the first Law Officer of the state has chosen to address press and that too by projecting falsehood. It's reflect very poorly on the merit of legal advice being available with the state government on important constitutional matters. Finding fault with statement of Advocate General that Art 35 A is not part of Constitutional of India and it applies only to Jammu and Kashmir and as such it could have been introduced even without being passed by Parliament, State Bharatiya Janata Party Chief Spokesperson Sunil Sethi said that Art 35 A is undoubtedly part of Constitution of India and extends to while territory of India. It affects rights of Indian living outside Jammu and Kashmir more than so called permanent residents as right of equality guaranteed to Citizens of India has been violated by Art 35 A. It is without doubt that Art 35 A hits the basic structure of Constitution and dilutes the supremacy of Parliament as well as Judiciary when it denies even judicial review in matters affected by state subject laws. Sunil Sethi further noted that having been introduced in Constitution in a manner which is illegal and unconstitutional, Art 35 A can't stand the scrutiny by the Supreme Court of India and will surely meet its death at the heating of petitions by Supreme Court. The nervousness of Separatists and their supporters on the court litigation clearly reflects that truth is known to them as also anticipated outcome of litigation on merit and that is reason for making such reckless and misleading statements and also threats of agitation if Art 35 A is declares unconstitutional . He further said that despite having services of Advocate General himself appearing in Supreme Court the state government is spending millions of rupees of tax payers in engaging number of Advocates to defend it. It reflects that state has no faith on Advocate General or his competence to deal with high stake constitutional matters.

Jammu based NC leaders threaten to wage “Jihad”, Jago Jammu Jago

Brig. Anil GuptaThe threat to launch “Jihad” against BJP clearly shows the radicalized communal mind set of the concerned leaders as well as utter disregard of the people of Jammu who had given an unprecedented and historic mandate to BJP which no party ever got so far. Frustrated with their failure to arouse public support the NC leaders are now resorting to threats of terrorizing the karyakartas of Bharatiya Janata Party. “What else can be expected from a party which is responsible for ethnic cleansing of Valley, exodus of Kashmiri Pandits and promotion of radical Wahhabi Islam and introduction of terrorism,” lamented Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of BJP? Very recently the President of NC had described terrorist Burhan Wani as a martyr, referred to ‘stone-pelters’ as “freedom fighters” and urged Hurriyat to continue its secessionist movement. He appealed to the Hurriyat leadership to unite and assured them, “We are not your enemy. We are with you.” Is the NC now planning to carry forward the Hurriyat’s agenda to peaceful Jammu region by threatening to wage “Jihad” against the elected representatives of the people? Are they threatening the people of Jammu to toe the line of NC or else be prepared for the similar situation as in Valley? It is a matter of shame that power hungry leaders of NC have stooped to such a low level of politics, stated Brig Gupta. The irony is that same leaders are also trying to project themselves as “voice of Jammu”. How can they claim to be voice of Jammu when the ideology of their party is based on “ethnic exclusion and promoting Kashmiri speaking Muslim precedence,” questioned Brig Gupta. “The party which has encouraged separatism, carries a ‘tunnel vision’ limited to Valley, is the architect of regional discrimination and divisive politics, humiliated Dogra rulers, obliterated all signs of Dogra heritage, distorted history and supressed Dogras will never be acceptable to the people of Jammu let alone being their voice”, asserted Brig Gupta. The leader who claims to be “voice of Jammu” was very recently reprimanded by his valley based political mastersin such stern words,"When Sher-e-Kashmir was against the Dogra rule how can our ranks be in favour of the Maharaja, the logic is simple. We won't mind parting ways with any leader from our party who wants to be a Dogra fan." The local Jammu leader who is a master of opportunistic politics was trying to win the favour of Jammuites by invoking Dogra heritage and Duggar Pradesh. With what face can he now claim to be “voice of Jammu”, asked Brig Gupta? Is he willing to part ways with NC? The people of Jammu are intelligent enough to understand as to who their well-wisher is and who is trying to exploit their sentiments for narrow political gainsbecause they are fully aware of the ideology of the party to which these leaders belong. Their party has gone to the extent of creating imaginary religion based sub-regions disregarding natural geography with the sole purpose of isolating the Hindu majority districts of the Jammu region, accused the spokesperson. Brig Gupta demanded that the NC leaders must explain to the people of Jammu as to where their loyalties lie, do they support the Hurriyat like their President and are they also in favour of ‘azadi’ in the garb of Greater Autonomy rather than misleading them through political clichés. Brig Gupta also condemned their demand for a commission of enquiry based on perceived irregularities. He reminded them that their party is facing so many acknowledged scams and must worry about resolving them. Brig Gupta demanded that scams like Jammu Kashmir Cricket Association, Land Scam and NRHM Scam need to be handed over to CBI so that their leaders involved in these scams are exposed and dealt with according to law.

BJP State Spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta took Chidambaram to task

Prof. Virender GuptaBJP State Spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta strongly criticized the statement of Ex-Home Minister and Senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram for supporting the demand of Greater Autonomy, thereby providing fuel to the separatists who have waged a war against India at the behest of Pakistan and are threatening the unity and integrity of the country. He said that his statement particularly at this juncture when the security forces are well in control of the situation in the valley, the separatist and terrorists are demoralized and the conditions are fast returning to normal and Pakistan has been isolated and its cry on the Kashmir issue is being given little attention in the world fora, amount to doing disservice to the national interests. Prof. Virender further added that P. Chidambaram attempt also amounts to sabotaging the efforts of Govt. of India to restore the confidence of the Kashmiri people by appointing Mr. Dineshwar Sharma as representative of the Central Government. The Spokesperson stated that some of the Congress leaders are still following Nehurian mindset that created the Kashmir problem and that is still proving to be a thorn for the Indian union. The two of such leaders are Mani Shankar Aiyar and P. Chidambaram who always favoured and suggested the proposition of returning to accession and considered it as mother of all Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) P. Chidambaram as a Union Home Minister recommended this approach in 2010 to the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS). Prof. Virender Gupta opined that confiding with Sheikh Abdullah and other National Conference leaders to decide the future of Jammu and Kashmir state by Pt. Nehru, while side lining Maharaja of the State and ignoring the interests of the people of Jammu and Ladakh regions, is one of the greatest blunders in the Modern History of India. He added that treating the J&K State differently as compared to the other princely states and allowing it to have its own constitution and not completely merging the state in the Indian union, by incorporating Article 370 in the Indian constitution, is the basic cause of the present Jammu and Kashmir problem. It speaks of the mindset of Congress party from the very beginning, the spokesperson said.

Chidambaram’s statement once again exposes dual face of Congress: BJP

Brig. Anil GuptaTerming Congress as the architect of the present mess in J&K, Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party criticised the statement of ex Home Minister and senior Congress leader P Chidambaram advocating “Greater Autonomy” for Jammu & Kashmir as opportunistic, contradictory, misleading and motivated. By advocating Greater Autonomy Chidambaram is contradicting the stand taken by his own party on the floor of the house when the autonomy resolution was passed by a voice vote by the J&K Legislative Assembly on 26 June 2000. Mr Chidambaram needs to be reminded that the resolution moved by the then Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister, Mr. P. L. Handoo, was passed amid opposition from members of the Congress(I), the BJP and the Panthers Party. The entire opposition had staged a walk-out from the assembly clearly indicating that it was not the demand of the entire state of Jammu & Kashmir but of a particular political party. Chidambaram’s party had opposed the Greater Autonomy resolution on the floor of the house and today he is advocating the same. It has once again exposed the dual face of Congress on matters relating to J&K. During six decades of its rule at the centre and four decades in the state, the party has made no move to resolve the Kashmir imbroglio created by it due to its flawed policies except making false promises and loud statements leading to the current mess creating a wide rift between the Valley and rest of the nation, accused Brig Gupta. Congress needs to clarify before the nation its stand on the issue of Greater Autonomy. It is to the credit of the then NDA government led by Shri Atal Behari Vajpayee (NC was part of this government) which unanimously rejected the demand for autonomy stating that“acceptance of the resolution would set the clock back and reverse the natural process of harmonising the aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir with the integrity of the nation”, stated Brig Gupta. He further clarified that the issue of restoring the constitutional situation in Jammu and Kashmir to its pre-1953 position had been discussed in detail by the former Chief Minister, late Sheikh Abdullah, with the former Prime Minister, Mrs Indira Gandhi in 1974-75.It is noteworthy that the agreement signed after these negotiations had affirmed that “provisions of the Constitution of India already applied to the state of Jammu and Kashmir without adaptation or modification are unalterable.” If this has been the stand of the Congress and NC in 1975, why is it that the issue is being raised time and again by the successors of Sheikh Abdullah and the Congress is maintaining a dual policy on the same, questioned Brig Gupta? The fact is that both NC and Congress has nothing concrete to offer to the people of Kashmir except false promises and dubious political machinations to ensure that pot continues to boil in Kashmir. It also appears to be part of a sinister design to derail the sustained dialogue process initiated by the government to find a final and lasting solution to the imbroglio since demand of autonomy is against national interest, said Brig Gupta.

Generate love for national anthem rather than forcing: S.S Bijral

SS BijralPatriotism rests in heart and cannot be forced down the throat. Respect for national flag and national anthem, the symbols of patriotism, has to flow out of love generated and not forced under fear of law. While petitions for recall of Apex Court November 30, 2016 order which justified playing of National Anthem in cinema halls on the ground that it would “instil a feeling of committed patriotism and nationalism” are being disposed off, S.S.Bijral former IGP and state BJP spokesperson welcomed observations of Justice DY Chandrachud: “should we wear patriotism on our sleeves. Next thing will….…where do we stop this moral policing?” Bijral noting further the observation of Justice Chandrachud : “There is no mandate that people should stand up when National Anthem is sung in a cinema hall. This is obviously because a cinema hall is a place of entertainment….” said in pursuance of The Prevention of Insults To National Honour Act 1951, singing of National Anthem in cinema halls at the end of the movie remained in vogue for sometime around sixties, but was discontinued being unenforceable with cinegoers crowding at the exit gate ignoring their national responsibility. Former senior cop Bijral noting Apex Court Bench indicated it was open to modifying its 2016 order replacing the word “shall” with ‘may” making playing of the National Anthem optional, said this would create violent ‘Anthem vigilantism’ in cinema halls and cause reprehensible situations like ‘cow vigilantism’ created in country hitting low its global image. Referring to country’s ‘soft state’ image with enforcement leaving lot to be achieved, Bijral who himself stands up at home even in honour when National Anthem is played on TV, pleaded that petitions calling for recall of Apex Court 2016 order be favourably disposed off considering past experience and its unenforceability. Instead he urged that the authorities who matter should devote themselves to issues like mass political and public corruption, rising prices, unemployment, pollution and filth all around that fail to generate their expected love for the most honourable National Flag and National Anthem. Let those in governance respect their moral responsibility, people, Bijral said, would never lag behind in patriotism.

BJP Refugee Cell to open “Refugee Helpline Centre”

Lotus Logo copyBJP Refugee Cell, which is fighting for the long time to address the issues related to woes and sufferings of displaced persons from Pakistan Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (PoJK) has decided to open a “Helpline Centre” for the immediate redressal of the issues pertaining to the “Rehabilitation Package of the DPs of PoJK of 1947,1965 and 1971”. Refugee Cell State Convenor, Pt. Ashok Kumar Khajuria, while elaborating on the subject said that, while the issue is being already covered under “Prime Minister’s Development Package for J&K” approved under the Union Government’s Rehabilitation Package for Displaced Families from PoJK and Chhamb to the tune of 2000 Crore Rupees to be paid to 36,384 families at the rate of 5.5 Lakh rupees per family. He said that, although the scheme has been set into the motion by the Union government, but still there are many problems in the ground implementation of the scheme due to the one reason or the another. He said that most often, the beneficiaries under the schemes are from the below par background, so they are unable to avail the benefit promptly, due to lack of proper information or mediums. He said that often they are devoid of the true information and have to run from pillar to post in order to gather the authentic information with no one giving them a kind hearing, which at times is presenting a situation of total helplessness for them. They have to struggle for even a single, simple document, which is highly condemnable in humane perspective and they have to see this apathy for not one , two or ten years, but a long period of 70 cruel years, thus leading a life of alien in their meagre resources with every previous Government and administration lending a cold shoulder to their worries, he added. Pt. Ashok Kumar Khajuria, further said that in view of all the problems cited above BJP State refugee Cell has decided to come up with a “Refugee Helpline” in the premises of BJP state headquarter, Trikuta Nagar, Jammu, in which any member of the Refugee community can come to seek help about the document or other administrative issues and every possible effort will be done by the “BJP Refugee Cell” members in order to mitigate their sufferings.

Why don’t we learn from our leader?

SS BijralWondering why dignitaries, politicians and bureaucrats, let their well advertised cleanliness drive end up a mere photo show? Their this exercise cements the dirt and filth in people mind instead of helping them be motivated to stay clean, said S.S. Bijral BJP state Spokesperson. Given the situation said one cannot escape the question ,”why don’t we learn from our leader”, with PM Narindera Modi giving the nation lead. Bijral, former IGP, said if we recall what Jai Ram Romesh UPA Environment and Forest Minister had said in 2009 and what PM Narinder Modi did during his surprise inspection of a Delhi police station on October 2, 2014, we would know Bharat, our mother land, does not expect us , its children to play with her honour by holding broom in hands for publicity stunt little bothering about her deteriorating health. Jai Ram Romesh had said,”Our cities are the dirtiest of the world. If there is a Noble Prize for dirt and filth India will win it in deed,” hitting national pride and ignoring to take corrective steps. Our PM Narindera Modi during his surprise visit took the broom and swept the scattered filth in police station premises advising staff there to keep area clean. The latter during his Independence Day address from Red Fort exhorted people to build toilets, end open defecation and join ‘Swachhata Abhiyan’ launched by the government. Bijral asserting the need is for action, a coordinated one, by individuals and the agencies involved. Modi led this campaign by actually doing it as Prime Minister expecting of us all to take pride in mothering the nation and enthusiastically coming forward to build a “Swachh Bharat’ the dream of Mahatma Gandhi and Narindera Bhai Modi. He said considering our selves fortunate being led by a selfless committed PM Modi, we should at least not falter in learning from him.

Cong needs to elaborate its perception on regional councils: Prof. Virender

Prof. Virender GuptaBJP State Spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta welcomes the senior Vice-President of State Congress party Sham Lal Sharma for his statement, asking for Regional Councils for all the regions of the state in order to ensure justice and equal development of all the regions. Prof. Virender asked Mr. Sharma that whether he has the consent of State Party President Ghulam Ahmed Mir and its senior Kashmir based leaders like Saif-ul-Din who have been supporting the demand of greater autonomy for Jammu and Kashmir (implied valley). He also asked Sharma to elaborate the structure of Regional Council and their powers. He asked the Congress party both at the State level and the National level to come out with a definite proposal on the issue of Regional Autonomy. The Spokesperson emphasized that merely having regional council with Financial, administrative and legislative powers with the Kashmir oriented State Government would end into a futile exercise. He elaborated that what is the need of the hour is political, administrative and financial empowerment of all the regions, in particular Jammu and Ladakh regions. The BJP from 1990 has been supporting the demand of Autonomous Regional Councils that addresses the issue of empowerment of all the regions. Prof. Virender Gupta said that number of proposals have been so far mooted to provide due justice to Jammu and Ladakh regions. These proposals include granting of statehood to all the three regions which was initially put forth by Jammu Mukti Morcha, Jammu State Morcha and know being supported by National Panthers Party and other Jammu based social and political organizations/ groups, he said. He added that the people of Ladakh region since long, right from the days of Kushak Bakala have been demanding for Union Territory status for the region. Prof. Virender asked Sham Lal to ponder over the proposals of regional autonomy, recently proposed by retired Director General of Police, M.M. Khajuria and that put forth by the Ex-Commissioner cum Secretary and member of State Finance Committee, Swami Raj Sharma about 15 years back. Prof. Virender pointed out that these proposals are identical to the concept of Autonomous Sub Statehood as was envisaged in Article 244A of Indian constitution and was applied to seven sister states in the North East. Elaborating the sub statehood concept, Prof. Virender said that Jammu & Kashmir should have three sub states for Jammu, Ladakh and Valley, with each sub state having its own legislature with all the powers that a state should have except for some of the common subjects / matters on which all the political units have consensus, and be left to the state executive councils which should have five members from each unit and work under the chairmanship of the Governor of J&K State. He further added that the Governor should be the head of the State Executive Council and there would be a common High Court.

Keeping this in view, solar power plant was envisaged for the office complex which has now become functional. Speaking on the occasion, Sh. Shamsher Singh Manhas highlighted that geographical location of the country stands to its benefit and India has tremendous scope of generating solar energy. The reason being India is a tropical country and it receives solar radiation almost throughout the year. Since majority of the population lives in rural areas, there is much scope for solar energy being promoted in these areas. Use of solar energy can reduce the use of firewood by rural household. He further said that Solar power is inexhaustible. In energy deficient country like India, where power generation is costly, solar energy is the best alternate means of power generation and we don’t need a power or gas grid to get solar energy. A solar energy system can be installed anywhere. Solar panels can be easily placed in houses. Hence, it is quite inexpensive compared to other sources of energy. He appreciated the efforts of NHPC for installing On Grid Solar Power Plant at its Regional Office being a clean renewable resource with zero emission. A vote of thanks was presented by Sh.

Kashmir Bar Association’s additional affidavit mischievous and motivated: BJP

Brig. Anil GuptaBharatiya Janata Party Jammu & Kashmir totally rejects and condemns the contents of the additional affidavit submitted by J&K Bar Association, Kashmir to the Honourable Supreme Court stated Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson, in a press release issued by the Party. “The stand taken by the Honourable Supreme Court on the issue is highly praiseworthy and a befitting rebuttal to the well planned mischief being played by a section of the Kashmir civil society. The Bench headed by none other than the Honourable Chief Justice of India has expressed shock at the controversial averments made by the bar body in the additional affidavit”, according to Brig Gupta. Earlier, in a petition in the J&K High Court the bar association has insisted on a “unilateral declaration of cease-fire”, withdrawal of security forces, revocation of AFSPA and stoppage of using pellet guns. The High Court had rejected the bar body's plea seeking a ban on use of pellet guns on the ground that the Centre had already set up a Committee of Experts through its memorandum of July 26, 2016 for exploring alternatives to pellet guns. The Bar Association had challenged this order in the Supreme Court. Considering the Bar to be a “responsible” and “respectable” body the Court asked it to help in finding a solution and asked it come up with suggestions to resolve the crisis, including stone-pelting and violent street protests in the Valley. The Bar association betrayed the faith imposed in it by the Apex Court by making mischievous and motivated allegations in its additional affidavit like the “accession of J&K to India is mysterious and controversial”, rued Brig Gupta. It is quite perplexing that a body of legal experts all of a sudden realises that the Instrument of Accession signed by the Maharaja 70 years ago is mysterious and remained silent on this aspect all this while. It clearly indicates the motive behind this. Now that the voices are being raised for amending the Constitution and for removal of discriminatory provisions that have prevented total assimilation of the State with India and the entire matter is subjudice in the Apex Court such statements are being made by those who are supposed be legal experts to mislead and provoke the people in the state, said Brig Gupta. Accession of J&K is a settled issue with no legal lacuna. Not only the Instrument of Accession was signed by the Maharaja as per the Indian Independence Act 1947 and was identical to the one signed by rulers of other more than 500 states, the accession has subsequently been ratified by the J&K Constituent Assembly in 1954 and included in the constitution of the State. The Constituent Assembly was mandated to recommend abrogation of Article 370 before its dissolution which it failed to do thus doing a great disservice to the people of this state. This act of the Constituent Assembly is mysterious and controversial and not the accession of the State, asserted Brig Gupta.

Let’s not bemoan but save dying Dal Lake

SS BijralCM Mehbooba expressing pain at Dal situation and her decision to monitor herself cleaning up of the lake periodically has awakened hope of the public sharing hopelessness of restoring and securing pristine glory of ‘pearl in crown of Kashmir’. The crying need is not to bemoan but save dying Dal Lake. For conservation of Dal and Nigeen lakes in Srinagar, J&K Lakes and Waterways Development Authority, vide Govt. Order no. 117 of HUD dated April 11, 1997, an autonomous body was created. Even after spending over Rs 500 crores in last over a decade the situation is painful. S.S. Bijral former IGP and BJP State Spokesperson said there are little chances that ‘pearl in the crown of kashmir’ Dal Lake is famously known, shall be conserved for future generations. Dal Lake, second largest in state is divided into four basins: Small Dal, Big Dal, Gagribal, and Nigeen. It has a shore area of 15.5 Sq. Kms and covers 22-24 sq. kms including floating garden of lotus bloom. Observing that three projects: 1) National Lake Conservation & Management costing Rs 298.76 started in 2005; 2) Conservation & Management Programme ( Prime Minister Reconstruction Programme) costing Rs 356 crores started in 2010; 3) Rehabilitation Of Families Dislocated From Dal & Nigeen Project costing Rs 416 crores for development of site at Rakh-i-Arth, are funding this vital national programme, Bijral said this programme instead of benefitting nation, is benefitting selected few. Cases registered with SVO after raids conducted of LAWDA offices confirm ground realities. Former IGP Bijral said Dal would be saved only when people see ‘dying Dal’ staring into their eyes and govt. awakens to its responsibility of sparing society from disastrous ecological consequences. Bijral paying kudos to students of Department of Tourism Studies of Central University Kashmir who held a street play ‘Aakhin Naad By Dal’ for public awareness said educated youth should lead the masses in society/nation building programmes.

BJP criticises transfers

Prof. Virender GuptaBJP State Spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta expressed his anguish on the report published in one of the daily newspapers that the transfer policy framed in 2010 by a Government order is being frequently floated and that during the period between January 01, 2017 and September 29, 2017 (a nine month period) 346 transfer have been executed constituting 41 IAS and 305 KAS officers including Secretaries and above, HoDs, MDs, Dy. Commissioners and SSP. It is surprising that while making those transfers, the general norm of seeking the approval of the cabinet is not followed. These transfer were in addition to 45 transfers of the officers made with the approval of State Cabinet. While referring to the reporting in the press that the transfers are being mode frequently without following the norms as laid down in the Government order of 2010 that the minimum tenure of a Government employee on a post shall be two years and maximum of three years, which may be extended to five years in case of special circumstances as mentioned in the transfer policy. Prof. Gupta said that the frequent transfers of the officers adversely affects the working of the Government and the projects undertaken by various departments get delayed. He further said that such transfers of the officers of higher ranks without keeping the cabinet into confidence spoils the mutual faith and trust among the two political partners of the government and tells upon the harmonious relationship and the coordination between them. Prof. Virender said that because of the present transfer policy a strong resentment is brewing among the majority of IAS, IPS and KAS officers. He further added that persons having political patronage get the priced posting at their choicest places and officers belonging to Jammu region, particularly of the minority community suffer the most, because of the arbitrary policy pursued by the highest authority in the government. It has been reported that SSPs and SPs belonging to minority community are not given district level positions where they can show their worth, in spite of their promising career, dedication and honesty. The officers of Kashmir valley are given posting at their preferred positions in districts, 3-4 times during their service, without giving any consideration to their involvement in corruption cases pending against them. Prof. Virender cited the example of two brothers where one is enjoying the position of I.G. Kashmir in spite of his corruption charges is being investigated by State Vigilance Department and the other one at present is posted as Divisional Commissioner, Srinagar and is involved in Gumlarg scam amounting to crores of rupees. Prof. Gupta further said that government should adhere to the norms and the established procedures for affecting the transfers to restore the shattered trust and faith of the employees who are giving their blood for the service of this already disturbed state and ensure justice to the officers belonging to the Jammu region.

Construction of Bunkers a welcome decision: BJP

Brig. Anil GuptaBharatiya Janata Party is totally committed towards fulfillment of the promises made to the residents of the border belt and welcomes the decision of the Modi government to construct 4700 community bunkers and 19000 individual bunkers in addition to the bunkers to be constructed by state government, said Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of the Party. In a press release issued by the party, the decisions already taken for their benefit have also been highlighted. It has already been decided to pay monetary compensation at par with victims of cross-border firing on the Line of Control (LOC), adequate compensation is also being paid for the loss/injury of cattle, damage to the crop has also been included in the new Crop Insurance Policy stated the Press Release. According to Brig Gupta, these bunkers are to be built in all the five districts of Jammu region which are located on the IB and LOC. District wise allotment of bunkers will be done based on the population of each district. The entire cost of the project including acquisition of the land will be borne by the central government. The bunkers will be constructed in a safer zone and will also have cooking and toilet facilities, in other words these will be underground living units and will prove handy in case of NBC attack as well, explained Brig Gupta. Brig Gupta said that due to a high water table in the border belt, the executing agency will have to ensure proper sitting and designing of the bunkers and should pick up adequate lessons from the agencies which are currently involved in bunker construction in these areas. Adequate planning for waste disposal and ventilation would be required since the bunkers would also include kitchen and toilets because construction of soakage pits in these areas is problematic. Brig Gupta also hoped that adequate measures for the safety and security of the bunkers will also be catered for. Bharatiya Janata Party is the true well - wisher of the people of border belt and does not believe in mere rhetoric and lip service as being done by the other political parties. Brig Gupta questioned the leadership of National Conference and Congress who ruled the state for more than six decades as to what did they do except making false promises to these people and exploiting them for vote bank politics? It goes to the credit of BJP that it is walking the talk and sincerely addressing the issues facing the border residents as per the press release.

Frustrated NC back to communal, divisive politics: BJP

Brig. Anil GuptaBereft of any substantial issues, National Conference (NC) is back to its old game of divisive politics, commented Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of the Party. Recently, the Chief Spokesperson of NC in a statement has accused Bharatiya Janata Party of complete U-turn on J&K. The basis of accusation is non-inclusion of J&K centric peace initiatives in the political resolution passed in just concluded BJP National Executive Meeting. In order to remain relevant and for its political survival NC has developed a habit of baseless criticism and denationalization to hog limelight, stated Brig Gupta. The central government has been praised in the political resolution for the firmness with which it had achieved a "remarkable balancing act" by showing no mercy to terrorists and separatists while displaying a marked degree of sensitivity towards the common Kashmiri. National Executive also hailed the government for executing measures which will give impetus to the holistic development of the state, a key component of the Agenda of Alliance (AOA). BJP has always maintained that for lasting peace in Kashmir, terrorism and separatism have to be totally eliminated, said Brig Gupta. The party is completely in sync with the Government’s approach and thinking of the Prime Minister and Home Minister. NC by issuing catchy statements and blaming BJP is not only trying to mislead the people but also trying to build an atmosphere of mistrust thus derailing the peace initiatives of the government, alleged the spokesperson. NC is advised to cooperate with the government rather than creating a wedge between the government and people so that the peace initiatives get fructified at the earliest. As far as the dialogue is concerned, none other than the Prime Minister and Home Minister of the country have given a call for talks. It is now up to those who are willing to hold unconditional talks to come forward. The doors of the government are open for all those who are willing to talk within the ambit of the Constitution of India, asserted Brig Gupta. The frustration of NC is evident from the fact that it is a divided house and its leadership speaks in different voices dividing the people of the state on communal and regional basis. While the Jammu leaders exploit local sentiments in the name of Dogra rulers, Dogra identity and Duggar Pradesh, the Kashmir based leaders to please their constituency issue statements like, "When Sher-e-Kashmir was against the Dogra rule how can our ranks be in favour of the Maharaja, the logic is simple. We won't mind parting ways with any leader from our party who wants to be a Dogra fan." NC needs to set own house in order first. The Party has been thoroughly exposed for its communal and divisive politics. The people of Jammu & Kashmir are fed up with the kind of political perfidy displayed by NC and are no longer willing to be misled by the rhetoric of their leadership, warned Brig Gupta. BJP stands by all assurances given to the people of the state and is working towards establishing lasting peace assured the spokesperson.

Learning from Kashmir militancy strengthen Myanmar border: BJP State Spokesperson S.S. Bijral

SS BijralRhongiyas plight in Myanmar and Bangladesh relief camps draw general human empathy. India the worst victim of terrorism unleashed by neighbouring Pakistan sharing common religion with Rhongiyas cannot allow hostile neighbour to inject life into lost proxy war by exploiting needy, hard pressed illegally entering Rhongiyas. Learning from Kashmir militancy the critical need is to strengthen India Myanmar border, the source of influx. Referring to centre’s direction to states including Jammu and Kasjhmir to enforce interstate border surveillance to check fresh influx of Rhongiyas, S.S. Bijral former IGP and BJP state spokesperson said their influx can meaningfully only be checked at the border they infiltrate from. Once inside, and spreading out no amount of surveillance can be purposeful. North Eastern states sharing common border with Myanmar and Bangladesh form their infiltration launching pad. He said border management malpractices and porous border facilitate their illegal migration as happened in Jammu and Kashmir hugely exploited by Pakistan unleashing three decades of devastating terrorism. Rhongiyas, denied citizenship in Myanmar, most exploiatable being poor, displaced sharing common religion with Pakistan nurturing state policy of bleeding India through thousand cuts, Bijral said can only be prevented and contained by denying them entry at the point of origin- the border. Interstate border surveillance would be good enough for words and for their further exploitation by professional human traffickers. For their own palm greasing. Basically Bangladeshis, Rhongiyas were settled in erstwhile Burma by Britishers. They migrated illegally during 1971 Bangladesh war and thereafter. Without enjoying Myanmar citizenship, they form majority in Northern Rikhane state with Buddhists in majority in South. Buddhists, the natives, are genuinely at ease fearing they would soon be in minority in their own state with Rhongiya Muslims enjoying population explosion, without being citizen. Ethnic violence triggered over alleged rape and murder of a Buddhist girl led to waves of murder and arson forcing Rhongiyas to escape by all means possible as army exercised emergency powers. Indian govt has done well convincing Myanmar to take Rhongiyas back.

GGHSS Miran Sahib: Long under construction hall parking lot

GGHSS Miran SahibIt’s alright when an institution lacks a facility. Authorities learn to manage though unsatisfactorily and cribbing. But when raising of essential facility is left half way for years signifying neglect, it’s painfully discouraging and poorly reflecting. Under construction multipurpose hall suffering neglect for years at Govt. Girls Higher Secondary School Miran Sahib being used as parking lot ideally reflects the latter. GGHSS Miran Sahib is an old institution deserving to be declared a heritage school. Over 450 students are enrolled. To provide for exigencies of inclement weather or letting students be addressed by guest speakers collectively besides morning assembly, there is no provision. Collective essential school activity is at the mercy of weather. S.S. Bijral former IGP and State Convener Beti Bachao Beti Padhao project said that when he held a seminar there on ‘Beta Hi kyon Beti Kyon Nahin’ topic, the students squatted on ground in open in warm weather. He said a 40’x50’ spacious hall with brick masonry and lentil provided without flooring, plastering, wood work and other essentialities raised in 2013 under Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan is awaiting completion in school premises. It’s not lying idle. Though not serving students it’s planned for, it serves as a parking lot. Bijral, state spokesperson of BJP, stressed for the need for its priority completion without further delay for utilization of govt funds to benefit students.

BJP wedded to agenda of alliance for development of the state: Dr Narinder

Dr. Narinder Singh copyBharatiya Janata Party expressed it dismay that the National Conference has not given up playing politics with the people of Jammu and Kashmir. National Conference did not provide efficient governance and did precious little for development of the state. Instead it is responsible for creating militancy in the state. Has National Conference forgotten the political accord of 1975 between the centre and Sheikh Abdullah, and what it did since then when in power, asked Dr Narinder Singh state general secretary BJP. It neither provided bilji , sdak and pani nor created any positive narrative in the politics of the state. The BJP is trying its best for development of the state on all fronts and to restore normalcy in the strife torn Kashmir Valley. Dr Singh said that the BJP is committed to Agenda of Alliance for development and fighting gun wielding militants. He recalled that Ram Madhav general secretary BJP on his recent visit to Kashmir Valley hailed the “efforts” of the coalition partners –the BJP and the PDP—and the security forces in combating militancy and had requested opposition parties to cooperate without getting involved in the “political game of provocations” so that total normalcy is restored in the state. National Conference did not rise to the occasion but it is unfortunate that NC is continuing its negative narrative. Dr. Singh also questioned NC for not showing compassion when in power between 2008 and 2016 and doing nothing to eliminate gun wielding militancy, money laundering by separatist leaders. The separatists under the garb of azadi movement were amassing unaccounted wealth in the state , befooling people, and NC was a mute spectator of this loot and plunder . He said BJP is committed to restore complete normalcy so that the development of the will gather pace. He asked political parties not to play politics with militancy but join the vision of the Prime Mister in making J&K a developed state.

Prof. Virender condemns slanderous campaign against BJP

Prof. Virender GuptaState BJP Spokesperson, Prof. Virender Gupta criticized those who are exploiting the issue of declaration of holiday on 23rd September to commemorate the memory of Maharaja Hari Singh for their political gains. He was specially critical of leaders of those parties who were party in humiliating Maharaja and created circumstances for his permanent exile from the state of Jammu and Kashmir. A leader of National Conference who prominently echoed his voice, in favour of the issue, neither in the state assembly or in his party forum must be having the knowledge of Quit Kashmir Movement launched against Maharaja by his party, set out the condition on the accession of J&K state with India, even though Maharaja signed the instrument of accession without any pre-condition and hobnobbed with the then Prime Minister of India Union to oust Maharaja from the state. The Spokesperson further said that this leader of National Conference who claims himself as a Jammuite never raised the voice for declaration of holiday in memory of Maharaja in the past years, particular when NC was holding power in the state. Prof. Virender also questioned the leaders of the Congress party that why did they not raised any voice or made any attempt in the past to commemorate the Great Maharaja and what prompted them to raise the issue so vigorously, though BJP welcomes their awakening this time and hopes that they would continue their this struggle in future also in spite of bearing opposition from Congress Centre leadership. He reminded the State Congress party leaders of the fact that it were the leaders of this party who downgraded Maharaja, joined Sheikh Abdullah in his crusade against Maharaja and became instrumental in his exile from the state. The Spokesperson said that Praja Parishad and Jana Sangh always stood with Maharaja and tried to save his prestige at the time when NC and Congress parties were vehemently opposing his stay in the state which he ruled for about 25 years. Bharatiya Janata Party has always remained in forefront in recognizing the services of Maharaja for his state and campaigning for giving honour and dignity to this man of high stature. He said that the party has always been demanding for declaring public holiday on his birthday. Prof. Virender reminded all those people who tried to blemish BJP on the issue of declaration of public holiday on Maharaja’s birthday that it was during the period when the Mayor’s position of Jammu Corporation was occupied by BJP’s leader that two statue of Maharaja Hari Singh were installed in front of old tawi bridge and the location behind Jammu University and road leading to Bahu Fort. BJP has been and shall continue its struggle for declaration of holiday on Maharaja’s birthday, whether it is in power or out of power.

HCM role is critical in providing responsive honest administration: Bijral

SS BijralAfter late Chief Minister Mufti Mohd Sayed admission in Legislative Assembly that fighting corruption was a challenge, present incumbent CM, his daughter, exhorting Deputy Commissioners to play their critical role in governance as she alone cannot do anything is worrisome. But the incumbent CM would do well to note that her own role preferentially is critical in providing honest and responsive administration to people. S.S. Bijral BJP State Spokesperson lauding Chief Minister showing her concern for honest and responsive government when the state of J&K is far from being free from scourge of corruption. There were 1218 corruption complaints in last six months of 2015 and this figure rose to 1419 complaints in first six months of 2016. 1419 complaints were against 500 govt servants which included 283 gazetted officers. He said present coalition regime inherited state governance termed by Transparency International survey as the most corrupt from NC/Congress in 2014. The corruption besides affecting state economy, forced youth to take to guns with our neighbour helping to turn it into a proxy war. Bijral, however, felt constrained to accept ‘CM alone cannot do anything’. It’s the leader alone that determines win or defeat for code of conduct , operational strategy and other essential bench marks are set by the determined leader only. He said if in blatant violation of Supreme Court direction GAD sits over 34 cases forwarded by SVO, Crime Branch and CBI during last two years seeking sanction to prosecute 93 government servants including two senior IAS officers under Prevention of Corruption Act, how can the scourge of corruption be routed from the state. Bijral referring to Subramanian Swamy v/s Dr Manmohan Singh case of 2012 said the Apex Court explicitly stated that competent authority mandatorily decide within three months whether or not to grant sanction for prosecution under PCA. He wondered about message to the people when govt ignores specific mandatory Supreme Court direction. He lamented present situation in state is because carrot was served unchecked even undeservingly with stick ignored intentionally by the leader with clear anti-people message to the corrupt. Former bureaucrat Bijral making out a strong case for fight against corruption said that well meaning CM, daughter of late Mufti Mohd Syed known for his good governance would while on priority grant prosecution sanction in cases pending in GAD, ensure same is issued in future respecting SC direction. This done, Bijral said, critical honest and responsive government shall find way into lives of her subjects who trusted and voted Mehbooba Mufti lead PDP/BJP govt. Then she will not have to specially address the administrators ever assuredly

NC, Cong Playing Petty Politics with Maharaja Hari Singh’s Birth Anniversary: BJP

Lotus Logo copyState BJP lambasted the Congress and National Conference for politicizing Maharaja's Hari Singh's birth anniversary. BJP questioned the opportunist Congress, National Conference and other political parties for failing to declare September 23, the birth anniversary Maharaja Hari Singh, as a public holiday when in power since 1947. Congress and NC have ruled the state right till 2014 but these parties never ever commemorated the last ruler Maharaja Hari Singh birth anniversary and his contribution to the development of J&K. In fact NC under Sheikh Mohd. Abdullah and Congress under Jawahar Lal Nehru conspired to keep Maharaja Hari Singh out of J&K, after the accession of the state with India. It was the BJP that got the resolution moved by the grandson of ex-Maharaja a BJP legislator Ajatshatru Singh in the Upper House of Jammu and Kashmir Legislature in January this year for declaring Maharaja's Hari Singh's birth anniversary a holiday. Few other politicians, whose members were earlier in the Congress and later shared power between 2002 and 2005 never moved a resolution for declaring Maharaja's Hari Singh's birth anniversary as a holiday. Congress and NC have lost plot and are bereft of any constructive narrative. These political parties are not able to digest the developmental agenda of the BJP under which premier national level educational namely Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Indian Institute of Technology(IIT), All India Institute of Medical Sciences(AIIMS), and others have been sanctioned, out these IIT and IIM stated functioning. Congress and NC did not establish a medical college at Jammu till early 1970s, and no engineering college was established in the Jammu region. These parties instead of opening new institutes of higher education closed the only agriculture college of Jammu region at RS Pura in 1960s and shifted it to Kashmir and winded up Ayurvedic college in 1975. It was BJP's commitment that Ayurvedic college has been reopened at Jammu. These parties wanted to keep Jammu region educationally backward. It is for the first time in J&K history that neither the Congress nor the NC are in power, thus these parties are unable play role of constructive opposition. These parties have not yet digested the defeat suffered in 2014 state elections. NC , the party responsible for flight of Maharaja from the state, is finding virtue in the state subject law enacted by the Maharaja. Congress which umpteen times came to power by winning from the Jammu region never commemorated Maharaja's Hari Singh's birth anniversary not to speak of declaring it a holiday. Both NC and Congress are dynastic parties, and they commemorated their dynasties whether naming institutes or commemorating the birth or death anniversaries. NC changed the name of first agricultural university, which was originally to be named after G.M. Sadiq, and named it after Sheikh Mohamad Abdullah, and the height of travesty is that Jammu agricultural university was also named after Sheikh Abdullah and none from Congress and other parties from Jammu protested this dynastic mind set of NC. BJP lambasted these parties for the sheer opportunistic lust for power and dynastic nepotism. BJP is the party that celebrated accession day every year, installed Maharaja Hari Singh's statute at Tawi bridge when Kavinder Gupta was the mayor of Jammu and is making Jammu a educational hub, said Dr Narinder Singh General Secretary BJP. He castigated NC and Congress for politicizing Maharaja's Hari Singh's legacy, who was a role model and epitome of development in J&K. He said BJP is committed for pursuing the agenda of development and preserving the legacy of Maharaja's Hari Singh.

Omar’s statement illogical with communal tones: Prof. Virender

Prof. Virender GuptaBJP State Spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta said that Omar Abdullah, though is a member of major political party of the state and remained Ex-Chief Minister matches the separatists in his statements and gives the impression of being a fundamentalist and communal in his approach. Omar’s recent statement “will Dalai Lama be asked to leave, Tamil refugee sent back” and comparing the case of Rohingyas with Tibetans speaks that he has turned a mock, commented Prof. Virender. The Spokesperson reminded Omar of his past statements and actions. During Amarnath land row, he and his party opposed the temporary shelters for the religious pilgrims to be made during Yatra period and in the Parliament Omar announced that an one inch of land can be given for the construction of temporary shelters which otherwise were to be removed after Yatra. In 1990, NC created a situation in the valley in connivance with the separatists that forced the minorities to leave the valley and now is opposing their settlement back. Omar and his party are opposing the establishment of Sainik Colony even for those Sainik who are permanent residents of the state. Prof. Virender further said that during the periods when National Conference was in power, Jammu region was badly discriminated in all walks of life as the region is Hindu dominated. All the policies of the NC are Kashmir oriented and biased against Jammu region, in particular Hindu community. The Spokesperson asked Omar that does not his sympathy for Rohingyas and his statement in favour of their settlement in India and in Jammu region carries communal overtones, in the light of his and his party resistance to the settlement of Jammuites, who are permanent citizens of the state, in the Kashmir valley. The Spokesperson said that he would appreciate his concern for Rohingyas if he carries them along to the valley and make arrangement for their settlement there. He further said that the decision to allow or not to allow Rohingyas settlement rests with the Government of India which was elected by the people of country. It is government at the centre which has been given responsibility to as whatever it thinks, is in the interest of the country.

He said that the Aadhar system is enabling the fair distribution of government subsidies, policies and schemes to the needy population and has been successful to a great extent in plugging the leakage of the funds meant for the poor and the downtrodden. He said that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been flooding the Indian administration with the fool proof systems to reach out to the last man standing in the society working with the aim of “Nation First, Party second, Self Last”. He said that although the majority of the population has been covered under the facility, but still many persons have been suffering, as they have missed out the earlier drive for the registration with the Aadhar database due to one or other reasons and as presently many facilities are being linked with the same, so they are facing difficulty in taking advantage of them. He said that to overcome this, camp has been organized to facilitate the registration for the left out people at their doorsteps. He appealed to the general public to come and avail the facility promptly. While responding to the public demand, he said that the camp will certainly continue for one more day, if it seems that the more persons are still left.

Why not outcry for improved work culture?

Lotus Logo copyThe hall mark of our governance system ‘government of the people by the people for the people’ is people interest to be the driving. But what media reports reveal about ground realities coupled with long list of holidays state allows, is story apart forcing one to exclaim ‘why not outcry for improved work culture?’. Offering kudos to media reports, to quote: “Cabinet decision on finalising single BPL list gathering dust”, “8 years on, slow pace of work on Shamsipora bridge irks residents iof Anantnag South Kashmir”, Several DC’s fail to meet deadline fixed for submission of District Road Safety Plans”, Constituted 6 months back, panel fails to set up Social Audit Units”, and Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s repeated stress on agencies to complete their projects in time, S. S. Bijral former bureaucrat going into genesis of this work culture problem said the NC & Congress leaders that ruled J&K for long were particular about their personal comforts at cost of public inconvenience. He said under their rule state became second most corrupt state. Focused on self/family glorification they introduced the highest 27 public holidays in calendar year against only 18 in the country. Bijral said holidays are added up personifying tall public leaders who gave their life for people. On their birth /death anniversary observing holiday closing down public offices and educational institutions is defying the spirit - care of the poor, they lived for. He said real tribute to those public luminaries is that we keep excelling in service of people. Reflecting that USA and United Kingdom have national regional holidays 10 and 11 respectively, the senior former cop said the government should induce effective measures to improve work culture, the public yearns for. Trimming down list of holidays is politically tough decision but governance mettle is best proved by taking tough decisions and not by serving sops as unfortunately was done by the previous governments.

Article 35A is gender biased, violative of Fundamental rights: Prof. Kaul

Lotus Logo copyThe debates and discussions all over the country on revocation of Article 35A is the most talked about Article of constitution of India and is assuming greater significance whilst the matter is subjudice in the Apex Court of the country, states Prof. Kaul, the State Convenor of BJP Human Right Cell. The article has become a major politico legal issue for the state, where the affected people are keenly observing and hoping to get justice which has been denied to the people for the last 70 years. Sensing that justice will finally prevail in the Supreme Court of India, these political groups have started raising hue and cry with illegal designs to influence the proceedings of court. Article 35A which gives desired protection to controversial and temporary Article 370 accords special rights and privileges to the permanent residents of J&K state and imposes restrictions on person from outside the state. The article has proved to be road block on the integration of J&K State into Union of India. Kashmir political parties and separatists openly raise the bogey of autonomy and self rule and opposing the revocation of the article. It is an indirect conflict with Article 14 and 16 of the Indian constitution and is discriminatory in nature. Article 14 grants rights to equality and equal protection of law to all citizens of India while Article 16 provides rights of equality of opportunity in the matter of employment, but surprisingly and contrarily Article 35A has been instrumental in making J&K state a Muslim majority state. Article 35A was added in haste to strengthen. Article 370 through a Presidential order on 14th May, 1954 by passing the Parliament which is a necessary formality, where as the Article 370 was itself a temporary provision which was supposed to erode with the passage of time as was stated by Late Prime Minister of India, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru in a parliamentary debate. As such the Article 35A remains unconstitutional and illegal and has created a void that is detrimental to the constitution of the country, said Prof. Kaul. There is separate state constitution, separate flag and all the law framed by the Parliament are not applicable to state of J&K. All these factors have resulted into a chronic problem so called Kashmir problem which a nation is confronted with. This is the most appropriate time for the Supreme Court to deal with this complicated problem and to get rid of the article 35A once for all to ensure sense of justice in the state, to ensure complete integration of J&K state into Union of India and to ensure total Indian-ism in Kashmir valley. Article 35A has no constitutional locus standi and sancity as it reflects gender bias, discriminatory and against the mandate of “Right to Equality”, said Prof. Kaul. It violates the fundamental rights under article 14 because non citizen in J&K State cannot enjoy the same set of rights and privileges as enjoyed by citizens of J&K State. Prof. Kaul further added that if ‘Triple Talaq’ is discriminatory against the Muslim daughters of India, Article 35A discriminates against the daughters of the soil of J&K State. Article 35A violates the rights and create inequality amongst the unfortunate woman of state subjects to marry a man of their choice, because if a citizen women marries a non-citizen man, their progeny will not get the Permanent Resident Certificate (PRC) and will be deemed unfit for inheritance, while the same is not applicable for male members. If a male PR of J&K State marries outside the state including Pakistan, his wife gets PRC and their children also get the same privileges. This is discriminatory and against the very basis of gender equality in democratic system. Likewise the article violates the rights of SC and ST Valmikis in 1957 were given PRC provided that their generations will stay in the state only if they continued working as safai karamcharis or loose all the benefits of PRC. Denial of PRC to their generation born in the state if they opt out of their ancestral job of sweepers is extremely inhuman and unjustified. Their educated lots are either forced to work as Safaikaramcharis or loose all the benefits of PRC. This is against the humanity said, Prof. Kaul. Similarly West Pakistan Refugees are the worst victims of Article 35A. For the past 70 years, WPRs are suffering due to “Special Status” of the state and their subsequent generations born in the state are deprived of their state subjects and are denied the basic citizenship rights, which is clear violation of human rights. They are Indian citizens but live as orphans in the state. Kashmir based political leaders and separatists who raise hue and cry over the prospects of controversial Article being challenged in the Apex Court remain totally unconcerned about the biggest exodus in the independent India that of nearly 5 lakh Kashmir Pandits in 1990 who were thrown out of the valley, with their roots of over 5,000 years there. They are the indigenous inhabitants of the state living in exile for the last 28 years, said Prof. Kaul. Their return and rehabilitation with dignity and respect should have been the priority of these Kashmir leaders and separatists forces in comparison to defending Article 35A whereas they have no problem in settling thousands of foreign nationals like Rohingyas from Mayanmar and Bangladeshis who have settled in Jammu to disturb the peace and demography of Jammu region. They are in complete silent mode over deportation of these illegal immigrants. The state should employ serious measures on the deportation of these illegal immigrants, posing serious security threat to the state. He further added that construction of Sainik Colony for the defense personnel in the valley who are bonafide state subjects are being vehementally opposed. Article 35A rates non-permanent residents of J&K as second rate citizen, since they cannot purchase any immovable property in the state, are not eligible for employment by the State government, cannot contest or vote in local body or assembly elections, cannot avail of scholarships and other grants offered by the state government to its permanent residents and cannot seek redress in any court, whereas thousands of Kashmiri individuals have purchased houses, lands etc. in the metropolitan cities of India, but it is shocking the an Indian citizen from other states cannot purchase the same in J&K state said Prof. Kaul and asserted it is ridiculous to have such a provision in our constitution which debars ones own Indian citizen from purchasing the property in his own country. Thus it is clear that Article 35A is not only creating wall of separation between the state subject and rest of the country, but also within the state subjects. It is true that there are derths of employment resources in the state because no industrialist /businessman is willing to invest in the state, thereby forcing the unemployed youth to migrate from the state in search of job. If other states were to reciprocate and debar citizens of J&K from employment and purchase of property in their states. Have they ever thoughts? This is the reason why there is no or little economic or industrial development in the state. Tourism Industry is suffering, like wise there is derth of faculty in various professional institutes and universities. Such as Medical/Engineering etc. No outside Professor wants to come in J&K, because he is treated as second rate citizen in the state. Prof. Kaul contradicted the statements of various valley based leaders that there will be an outside domination over the heritage/identity of the people, once the article is set aside and the business sector shall suffer. It is merely a fear psychosis. On the other hand, it will open the flood gates for the industries, thereby providing employment opportunities to the unemployed youth which will bring overall development in all the three regions of the state. Article 35A is being made matter of controversy by certain groups of political leaders and separatists although the issue is before the highest court. They should understand that mass agitation, protests and violence cannot decide the constitutional validity of any provision. Court decision solely depends on the legal arguments and not on threats. Recently resounding judicial verdicts on most sensitive issues like Triple Talaq and on Baba Ram Rahim should be an eye opener for religious and fanatic groups and separatists. This has made every Indian proud, said Prof. Kaul. He further urged all the political and non-political parties to sort out the measures to get rid of this discriminatory meanance which is doing more harm to the state, than any good in respect of overall development, growth and integration. Time is ripe to take the country forward towards equality and justice said Prof. Kaul. Let us wait for the Supreme Court verdict on a plea over the issue.

Jammu fast emerging as Educational Hub: Dr. Narinder

Dr. Narinder Singh copyBJP State General Secretary, Dr. Narinder Singh, in a press statement, said that after the formation of government at the Centre, Jammu has been gifted with a number of prestigious educational institutions by Narendra Modi government and the establishment of Government Medical College of Ayurveda in Jammu after a gap of 42 years is one more success in the field of education. It was first Ayurvedic College, which was established in Jammu in 1962 but was closed down in 1975 during the rule of Sheikh Abdullah. Dr. Narinder Singh said that the previous Congress and National Conference Governments had adopted a total indifferent attitude towards the vast region of Jammu and turned down every opportunity for the Jammuites. Be it Health, Technology, Education or anything else, Jammu had no place in the scheme of things of the successive governments, particularly NC, which always gave step motherly treatment to Jammu. These political parties kept befooling people of Jammu by buying the conscience of certain shrewd people showcasing themselves as public leaders but having their own vested interests and kept playing with the sentiments of the Jammu people. He maintained that it was due to the apathetic approach of these political parties, the people of Jammu suffered in the fields of best healthcare facilities, and now when BJP has formed a coalition government in the state with PDP as its alliance partner, it has fulfilled the long pending demand of the Jammuites for an Ayurvedic College and Hospital, which is going to be established in Akhnoor town of the Jammu region.

VIEWS ON PARTITION AND J&K

21728253_1446756758739351_379653371959791927_nPartition of India in 1947 was a grave mistake, which was inspired less by the will of the people and more by the motivation of political self interest of a handful of individuals who were in a hurry to reach the top of hierarchy, even if that was at the cost of the division of the sub-continent followed by the history’s biggest ever exchange of population and the genocide in the aftermath. This forthright and hitherto rarely expressed view was stated by Union MoS Dr Jitendra Singh in his address as chief guest after releasing two books based on Jammu & Kashmir related thoughts of ideologue and thinker Indresh Kumar, published by Prabhat Prakashan. Quoting instances from history, Dr Jitendra Singh said, the coming generations of historians will definitely record the partition of Indian sub-continent as one of the gravest mistakes in the recent centuries. He said, the irony is that the argument to have a separate Islamic State for Muslims in the name of Pakistan failed to find favour even with prominent Muslim intellectuals, scholars andlittérateurs of that time. He referred to Progressive Writers’ Forum comprising prominent Muslim brains like Kaifi Azmi, Mohsin Bhopali, Akbar Allahabadi, Ismat Chugtai and Sahir Ludhianvi who had vociferously and outrightly opposed the partition, but were overruled by the political ambition of politicians like Mohammad Ali Jinnah and Jawaharlal Nehru.
