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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

BJP asks for fixing accountability for development

Prof.-Virender-GuptaIn a statement, BJP State Spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta stated that most of the projects which are visualized, do not get started and those which start often do not meet their end. The project to remove the scarcity of drinking water in Jammu city by bringing water from Chenab river was visualized somewhere in 1990 but it is resting in the files, whereas the project of providing sewerage facility to the Jammu city was visualized in 1992, planned in 2004, started in 2006 but still not yet reached the completion state. Another project of constructing lake in Jammu out of flowing water of Tawi river has been many years back imagined but its work could start around 2010, however as per the news it has been abandoned in between after spending about 90 crore of rupees. Project of developing Surinsar lake and connecting it to Mansar and Jammu city by an all weather pacca road, its completion has still been kept pending. Similar is the fate of flyovers whose start and completion is still uncertain even after its initial sanction in 2010. Due to non serious approach of the government, the project could not be taken up till date even after the lapse of seven years Even the land acquisition process has not yet initiated; whereas the funds for the construction of BC Ambhalla route to be provided by International Agency, ADB has lapsed two times. The starting of AIIM is also facing serious problem in the matter of acquisition of marked land due to slackness on the part of revenue department and the interference at the highest level. Prof. Virender further added that as per the report in the media, the physical verification of nearly 1500 projects across J&K State still being availed from the concerned department despite the lapse of several months. He added that it is mandatory so as to assess the financial implication, their implantation and physical progress for the effective monitoring implementation ensuring their completion within the stipulated time frame. He said that in number of cases the targets fixed for execution of various works are not achieved because of lack of coordination and monitoring. He asked for fixing dead line for completion of each job and those officers or concerned persons showing slackness and not meeting the targets fixed, should be taken to task.

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.

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.

Dismaying over casual approach of most of the people towards the significance of sanitation for human survival, the Minister exhorted upon all to strictly refrain themselves from unclean and unhealthy habits which would only lead them towards a dark and destructive future. Referring to rapid developmental transformation and technological advancements as major threat to Nature and its assets, the Minister said that Nature is the worst victim of today’s development and the time has come to ponder upon the issue seriously and take up immediate remedial measures in this regard. “Development must not be done at the cost of Nature and hence our existence but there must be a balance between the both for survival of mankind”, he maintained.

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.

Sh. Sat Sharma inaugurates “Aadhar Enrolment Camp” at Rehari

20170920_094155To address the public demand for Aadhar camp, as there are many residents of the Rehari Colony as well as nearby localities who were facing difficulty and hardship to avail certain government facilities due to the lack of Aadhar number, BJP State President & MLA Sat Sharma inaugurated an “Aadhar Enrolment Camp” in the presence of senior citizens and local BJP leaders at his residence in Rehari area of Jammu West Constituency. While addressing the public gathered to avail the facility, Sat Sharma said that Aadhar number is a 12 digit unique identity number issued to all Indian residents based on their biometric and demographic data, is the world’s largest biometric ID system, covering maximum Indian population under its database. 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. The camp was conducted with the help of Jammu West Tehsildar, Ram Lal Sharma, Nazir, Ajay Sharma and other field staff.

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. He also appreciated the role of Health Minister of the State, Bali Bhagat, who worked hard for the feast and now the 50 BAMS seats have been allotted from the current session with the help of BOPEE. Dr. Narinder Singh said that most of the population is now preferring the AYUSH system of treatment for the ailments they are sufferings and this will go a long way in boosting their health status. He said that the traditional system of medicines “Ayurveda” is being followed in India and almost in all the parts of the world through times immemorial and even continuing researches in the field are adding to its credentials. BJP is committed to bring in all the best health and education facilities to Jammu, citing the examples of IIT, IIM and others, he added and said that Jammu is fast emerging as Educational Hub.

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. As far as J&K is concerned, Dr Jitendra Singh reiterated his view that J&K is as much a State of Indian Union as any other State like Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. He said there is no issue like Kashmir issue and the need of the hour is to change the discourse and to set an agenda of debate for others to respond.

General Secretary (Organization) Ashok Koul paid tributes to all Martyrs who laid their lives in Kashmir for the cause of Nation. He recalled the days when he was working with Tika Lal Taploo in Srinagar and said that he was a "Nationalist" par excellence. He could never compromise on the question of "Bharat" and Kashmir being an integral part of it. He was a great Orator and could keep his audience spell bound by his logic and a special emphatic way of delivering his words. He was a skilled and gifted lawyer, but never did he use his skill for commercial gains. He pleaded free of charge for any downtrodden, be it a poor peasant, driver or prosecuted penniless person. He was totally dedicated towards delivering justice to one and all irrespective of their race and religion. This was one of his ways of practicing the secular character, which he always stood for and practiced till his last. He assured the gathering BJP Government is with them and will leave no stone unturned for mitigating the problems of displaced people. MLC Surinder Ambardar paid homage to Tika Lal Taploo and other Martyrs including security forces who laid their lives in Kashmir for crushing terrorism and make Kashmir terrorism free. Ambardar while paying tributes to Tika Lal Taploo said that whatever he earned as a lawyer, he spent on the needy widows helping them with their monthly rations, paying for school fees of their children, paying for marriage of a number of Muslim girls. Quite a number of homes, he saved from disintegration and prolonged litigation by adjudicating the family dispute out of court in a fair manner. In fact most of his actions aptly reflected the pet name “Lalla” - they gave him, and always rising above the base human weakness of cast, creed & religion. His protests against militancy carried weight with the masses and had the capacity to snow ball it into a movement. This, the terrorists could not afford. He shared his experience how he works for making inroads for normalizing the present crisis in Kashmir. MLC Girdhari Lal Rain in his speech said that Tika Lal Taploo was a fearless volunteer of his motherland, who backed by his sincerity honesty and a lion’s heart believed in the greatness of India and its people. Tika lal was never a coward, never a tyrant, never a communalist and above all never a Hypocrite. He lived bravely & he died a brave death. In his death as in his life he bewildered everybody. Even the assassin could not face him and shot him from behind. Thousands of men & women, young and old, friend and foe; mighty and poor - cried and wailed together for their brave man. Lastly he appealed people to get united and fight for the cause Lalla sacrificed his life. Chand Jee Bhat President while delivering speech said "Tika Lal Taploo" was a politician and rose to the high office of Vice President of Pradesh Bhartiya Janta Party. He was a fearless, transparent, honest and an upright politician. Never succumbing to pressures on principles, never cringing before the highest; never failing to call an ace an ace even against overwhelming odds. Whether he was in bar, where he was a loner, or in Lal Chowk amongst a multitude of people, he would never compromise on principles. He did dare to raise the cry for 'Democracy' while being maligned and dragged in Lal Chowk by the police in those unforgettable days of emergency, when the mightiest in the land had either been put behind bars or where cringing. Ashtosh Taploo son of Tika Lal Taploo while in tears said many years have passed, since this cowardly act; the entire Hindu Community and all the nationalist elements in the valley have been forced out of the wailing Valley. "Kashmir" abode of Kashyp Rishi has become a heaven for Terrorists & Insurgents. Kashmiri Hindus have been hounded out of Kashmir for being Nationalists. Tika Lal Taploo's death has left not only him but also Kashmiri Hindus really orphaned. Ravinder Kumar Raina (Razdan) Vice President before paying vote of thanks to Martyrs said as for his opinion is concerned there does not seem to be anybody championing the cause of Kashmiri Hindu with the same vigour, energy, passion, dynamism and selfless dedication as did Lallaji.

Cong should stop playing political gimmick: Prof. Virender

Prof. Virender GuptaState BJP Spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta questioned the seriousness of planning group of the Congress on Jammu and Kashmir, headed by former Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh. He said that the high level policy and planning group of the Congress which is visiting how, was constituted nearly five months before, but it did not feel its concern about the prevailing situation in Jammu and Kashmir in the last five months. He added that even though it thinks its fundamental right to criticize the Govt. of India for its policies regarding Jammu & Kashmir but the team and any of its Central leader did not bother to take stock of the situation and provide their valuable suggestion to the government in retrieving the situation and said that instead of playing political gimmick, it should play a positive role for the interest of the state and the country. The Spokesperson blamed the Congress party for the present situation in Jammu and Kashmir which kept the Jammu & Kashmir issue alive and burning because of its wrong policies since the accession of the state with India. It remained in power both at the Centre and in Jammu and Kashmir State for the most of the times: it was in power in the state in 1990 when situation in the valley had taken an ugly turn when KPs and other minorities suffered a mass exodus and it was in power from 2002 to 2014 in State and also at the Centre before 2014 for ten year; but it failed to resolve the issue. Prof. Virender Gupta asked the Congress party to clear its stand on Article 35A and said that it is a divided house on the issue. He added that Kashmir leadership of the party supports 35A whereas its leaders in Jammu province oppose continuation of 35A and Article 370 in Indian constitution, however the leadership at the Centre is confusing the people by speaking in different tones on the issue. The Congress party also needs to clear its stand on West Pakistan Refugee, on deporting of Bangladeshi and Rohingyas in Jammu province, instead of beating about the bush. Congress party needs also to clear its stand on the statements issued by some of its leaders on the Kashmir issue, who are supporting Azadi and autonomy for the valley, which include Mani Shankar Ayyar and even P.Chidambaram who is part of the visiting team. While taking on Gulam Nabi Azad on his statement, the spokesperson reminded Azad of the situation in J&K in 2008 when he was Chief Minister of the State and that of 2010 when Congress was sharing power with National Conference.

BJP delegation submits memorandum to Union Home Minister at Srinagar

BJP delegation submits memorandum to Union Home Minister at Srinagar-iLed by BJP State President & MLA Sat Sharma, a delegation of Jammu and Kashmir BJP called upon Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh, at Srinagar and submitted a memorandum containing the view point of the party on various issues confronting the state. The delegation comprised of State General Secretaries Dr. Narinder Singh and Pawan Khajuria, Chief Spokesperson Sunil Sethi, MLC Sofi Yusuf, Vice Chairpersons Khalid Jahangir and Dr. Ali Mohammed Mir, senior leader Dr. Drakshan Andrabi, Kashmir Media Incharge Altaf Thakur, Hospitality & Protocal Incharge Arif Raja and District Presidents of all the districts of Kashmir. Copy of the memorandum is enclosed. Memorandum for kind consideration of the Union Home Minister, Sh. Rajnath Singh ji. Esteemed Sir, The Jammu & Kashmir BJP welcomes the efforts of Central Government and its agencies to destroy module of militancy in the valley and which has met with unprecedented success. In recent past, we have witnessed sharp decline in militancy support base in valley and the impact of strategic investigations by NIA has constricted the financial support and base of separatists and militants/stone pelters. Without money, the anti-national movement cannot last long and we will soon witness an era of peace in state. The State BJP demands that NIA investigation scope be broadened and all supporters of separatism be investigated. If provision is added for immediate confiscation of properties of separatists, militants and their over-ground supporters and speedy trial to be concluded within six months, it will send fear down the spines of supporters of anti-national elements and break the back of the militancy. The State BJP is also witness to history in making when Supreme Court is hearing plea against 35A, which has only helped separatism ideology and secluded the state from National mainstream. We are bound by “Agenda of Alliance” not to do anything active to change constitutional position but decision by Supreme Court will go long way in bringing era of peace in State. The State BJP requests the Centre government to continue good projects being executed in state and would request for undertaking further Jammu centric projects especially in respect of infrastructure and tourism. The State BJP requests for taking early steps for laying railways line from Jammu to Poonch and Jammu to Doda, to bond these two neglected regions more intimately with Jammu and national mainstream and thereby thwart designs of enemies of nation who spread communal separation and hatred in these regions. · The State BJP is of the considered view that the Rohingyas from Mayanmar should not be allowed into J&K state and demands that those who have come should be deported without any delay. · The rehabilitation package for persons of Pak occupied Kashmir settled in Jammu and elsewhere should be immediately given effect to and ensured that no genuine refugee from PoK is left out from the package. Some 5300 families among them who had left the state were excluded by the then State government in 1971 and even on their return back to state, they are still being denied the rehabilitation package announced by PoJK. · As an immediate measure, the identification certificate that was being provided to West Pak Refugees and later on stopped, should be again resumed. This will facilitate their employment in central services and security forces. · PM’s Rehabilitation Package of 6000 jobs to Kashmiri migrants should be forthwith provided to them. These migrant employees should be provided adequate, secure and suitably located residential accommodation in the valley. · To provide protected shelters to the border people, bunkers need to be constructed for individual families to instil a feeling of security among them. · Large number of families of border areas stand deprived of their fertile agriculture land because the same fell outside the border fencing and they are required to be provided adequate compensation for the loss of access to their land and its produce. · The border people be provided special insurance for their live stock which invariably gets injured and killed by firing from across the border.

Sanjay Baru welcomed the joint declaration made at BRICS summit on Monday regarding the naming of the terror groups operational in the South Asia, terming it as big diplomatic win for India by the efforts of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Sanjay Baru said that BRICS countries on Monday named for the first time Pakistan based terror groups like LeT and JeM for causing violence in the region and destabilizing the peace of region.

Sanjay Baru said that the BRICS countries have asserted that those responsible for committing, organizing or supporting terror acts must be held accountable.

Report of Yashwant Sinha’s team is self contradictory: Prof. Virender Gupta

Prof. Virender GuptaBJP State Spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta while making the observations on the report of Concerned Citizen Group (CCG) led by Yashwant Sinha on their visit to the State said that the report is self contradictory and that CCG is trying to become an instrument to project the views of some of the groups who are front runner in the movement of the so called Azadi, or Nizam-e-Mustafa and the political leaders and elite class of the Kashmiri society who directly or indirectly patronage the separatists for their own political interests of their survival. He observed that on one hand, it is reported that social leaders are willing to make an effort to end the violence and ensure a peaceful atmosphere so that dialogue could begin to address their issues in less emotionally charged manner, whereas on the other hand CCG reports “the situation (this time around) was much worse than the previous two visits”. Prof. Virender while further commenting on the report said that it is bit natural that sense of dismay and despondency in the people of valley has grown where they observe that the movement of separatism which had been going on for the last more than one year seems to meet its end and during this period the tourism industry, business and economy has adversely suffered, the unemployment and economic distress have increased. The Spokesperson further said that outside support for terrorism and separatist forces has been continuously diminishing and the promise made by these forces to the people of valley that they would be able to get “Azadi” seems to be unachievable. He added that youth, in particular who were instigated by the separatists and other Jehadi agencies sponsored by Pakistan are in particularly feeling ditched and this is why they are feeling confused and are dismayed. He also attributed this to the hard stand of government in dealing with terrorists and separatists along with their sympathisers forcing the people to step back from disillusioned state of affairs created due to ill propaganda led out by Pakistan backed agencies. Prof. Virender agrees with the finding in the report that the “Judicial raking” of the Article 35A issue have pushed demand of “Azadi” to the back ground but does not consent with the observation that it has neither disappeared nor become secondary. He said that fact of the matter is that people, in particularly the misguided youth have started realizing its futility and started coming in the mainstream.

Sh. Ramesh Arora said that he fail to understand why in political life non issues

Ramesh AroraBJP MLC Adv. Ramesh Arora said that he fail to understand why in political life non issues are made issues at the cost of common masses without caring the outcome of the same. Previously, Omar Abdullah raised voice of ex-servicemen colony and thereafter migrant colony only to attract the public sentiments and tried to create issue out of no issue for the sake up petty vote bank and to appease few who support such things. Infact Kashmir issue is no issue but a creation of political leaders who want to keep pot boiling. Recent statements of Omar Abdullah and Farooq Abdullah are provocating and misleading the public. When both are aware that matter regarding Article 35A of the constitution of India is subjudice before Supreme Court of India. All parties and leaders should wait for the decision of Apex Court of the country. They have liberty to give their comment after the decision but it appears that they are in hurry to mislead the masses by uttering provocative remarks. Ramesh Arora further said that court has to decide legality of the issue and being advocate, I am aware of the fact that order made by President of India and incorporating as Article 35A in 1954 by amending the constitution applicable to the state of J&K is illegal and against the spirit of the constitution because it is settled legal position that only amendment, modification or addition or alternation in the original constitution can be made by 2/3rd majority of both houses of the parliament. But still the matter is to be decided finally by Supreme Court. The plea taken by the leaders that constituent assembly / state has given consent and that is why this article was incorporated as addition to article 35 and was added as 35A is not justifiable. Certain rights were left upon the government of the state with regard to state subject, permanent resident, land owner, reservation etc. but history shows equal status was not granted to the reserve categories as granted under the constitution of India or other laws made applicable from time to time. But due to restriction imposed under this provision Courts were debarred from questioning the discrimination if any made while exercising powers under Article 35A. Our state governments during NC and Congress regime have misused the special provision in view of ample power. This required deliberation and debate because we cannot discriminate any person on the basis of religion, region or otherwise. Arora further said that our government will wait the outcome of judgement and thereafter both the parties if required will sit and discuss the matter. It is premature to make it issue being a matter pending before highest court of the country.

NC has history of playing communal politics: Prof. Virender

Prof. Virender GuptaBJP State Spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta, while taking note of Omar Abdullah Statement that PDP-BJP alliance is dividing people on communal line, said that it is National Conference which has acquired expertise to play communal politics to grab the political power. He added that right from the day of its first birth as Muslim Conference, it exploited Kashmiri Muslims against the Hindu Maharaja on communal lines and engineered 1931 riots targeting Kashmiri Pandits, resulting into their massacre and destruction of their property. The demand of Special Status of 370 in a country that has secular Constitution and ethos of respecting and embracing all the faiths with the belief that all leads to the same Almighty, had communal connotation. Not allowing Hindu and Sikh Refuges form Muzfrabad, which was a part of Kashmir province to settle in Valley, exodus of Kashmiri Pandits, other Hindus and minorities and at present making it difficult of their resettlement in the Valley and also not allowing establishment of Sainik Colony in the Valley, are the consequences of communal politics being pursued under the patronage of National Conference. Role of Omar Abdullah and the National Conference during Shri Amarnath land row in 2008, was a clear example of divisive politics of National Conference and other Kashmiri leaders. Prof. Virender Gupta said that discrimination with Jammu region, which has Hindu Majority is a clear cut example of communal politics that is being played or was played by Kashmiri political leadership. The Spokesperson cautioned Omar Abdullah that his aggressive posture and the act of instigating the people against his presumption that Supreme Court would turn down Article 35A, biased policies of National Conference against Jammu and Ladakh regions shall divide the people on communal and regional lines and may lead to the division of the State and if it so happens, he and his party would be responsible for this development.

भारतीय जनता पार्टी के क्रिमची मण्डल की बैठक मण्डल प्रधान वीर सिंह की अध्यक्षता में सम्पन्न हुई।

IMG-20170831-WA0023भारतीय जनता पार्टी के क्रिमची मण्डल की बैठक मण्डल प्रधान वीर सिंह की अध्यक्षता में सम्पन्न हुई। बैठक में भाजपा प्रदेश महासचिव पवन खजुरिया, मण्डल के प्रभारी डॉ ललित शर्मा ,जिला प्रधान राकेश गुप्ता व वरिष्ठ नेता सोमराज जी मुख्य रूप से मौजूद थे। बैठक को सम्बोधित करते हुए प्रदेश महासचिव पवन खजुरिया ने कहा कि देश और प्रदेश में भाजपा की सरकारें हैं ,देश का नेतृत्व प्रधानमंत्री माननीय नरेंद्र मोदी जी कर रहे हैं जिनका नेतृत्व एक मजबूत नेतृत्व है और आज देश नई ऊंचाइयों को छू रहा है। विदेशी यात्राओं से देश को बहुत लाभ हुआ है क्योंकि जब डोकलाम में चीन से तना तनी हुई तो अधिकतर देश भारत के साथ खड़े रहे और चीन को अंतराष्ट्रीय मंच पर मुँह की खानी पड़ी। पवन खजुरिया जी ने आगे कहा कि भाजपा विकास को लेकर कटिबद्ध है। हमारे लोक सभा के सांसद और पीएमओ में राज्य मंत्री डॉ जतिंदर सिंह जी ऊधमपुर में कई विकास कार्यों में अपना भरपूर योगदान दे रहे हैं। इनके अलावा प्रदेश भाजपा ने राज्यसभा सदस्य श्री शमशेर सिंह मन्हास जी व एमएलसी अशोक खजुरिया जी को भी विशेष तौर पर ऊधमपुर में मार्गदर्शन व विधानसभा में विकास के लिए फंड्स जारी करने के लिए नामांकित किया है। इसलिए अगर कार्यकर्ताओं को अगर कोई अपने इलाके के विकास के लिए जरूरत है तो पार्टी कार्यालय में सम्पर्क कर सकते हैं। उन्होंने कहा कि स्थानीय विधायक कई मोकों पर मोदी जी की सराहना करते हैं लेकिन कई मौकों पर भाजपा को कोसते रहते हैं। उनकी यह दोगली नीति समझ से परे है। वरिष्ठ नेता सोमराज जी ने कहा कि मण्डलों की बैठकों में शक्ति केंद्र तथा बूथों की संरचना की जाती है ताकि संगठन मजबूत हो सके ,अब पार्टी किसी विशेष व्यक्ति के हाथों में नहीं बल्कि एक टीम के हाथों में है। राकेश गुप्ता का कहना था कि जब से पार्टी की कमान अमित शाह जी के हाथों में आई है, पार्टी दिन दोगुनी रात चौगुनी तरक्की कर रही है इसी का नतीजा है कि देश के उन्नीस राज्यों में भाजपा की सरकारें हैं और यह संगठन की मजबूत कार्यप्रणाली का ही परिणाम है। इस अवसर पर सुरिंदर मगोत्रा,रामदास,ताजअली,विकास शर्मा,रतनलाल सरपंच, अजय,विस्तारक जुगल किशोर,सुभाष अत्तरी, द्वारकानाथ, कुंजलाल व सलीम ने भी अपने अपने विचार रखे।

Judgement of SC on 35A shall prevail: Prof. Virender

Prof. Virender GuptaBJP State Spokesperson, Prof. Virender Gupta, while reacting to the statement of Omar Abdullah said that there is nothing anti-national if any person is defending Article 35A. However, he said that Omar is creating hype on Article 35A, when the case of its legality is being heard in Supreme Court. He is trying to divide the people on the regional as well on religion basis, he further said. He reminded Omar that people of Jammu and Ladakh regions always opposed the Article 35A and Article 370 right from the day of their inception in the Indian constitution. These were incorporated in Indian constitution by Pt. Jawahar lal Nehru to please and placate the Kashmir leadership without taking people of Jammu region and those of Ladakh into confidence. These articles may have been helpful to establish the autocracy of Kashmiri leaders and to satisfy their whims, whereas the common man of the valley has suffered and has remained aggrieved. The Spokesperson made the point that the people of Jammu and Ladakh regions have mostly suffered because of Article 370 and 35A. They were discriminated against in services, administration and development activities. They have been being treated as second class citizens. The identity and demography of the Jammu and Ladakh regions are meeting serious challenges from the Valley leadership. In reply to his charge that PDP has betrayed the trust of the Valley people while making alliance with BJP, the Spokesperson said that it equally applies to NC, when it joined the government at the Centre led by Atal Behari Vajpayee. He further said that performance of the present government is for better than the previous government led by Omar Abdullah. Many fold development activities took place and are being pursued at present, he said. The Spokesperson said that continuation of Article 35A in Indian Constitution depends upon the judgement of the Supreme Court and wishes of the people of the country as a whole. He added that Article 35A is against the fundamental rights as defined in Indian Constitution. He further said that permanent resident as defined State Constitution is not only against the fundamental rights but is discriminatory against the fair sex. Such laws should not sustain and remain in any civilized country. Prof. Virender questioned the so called fairness and judicious approach of the Kashmiri leaders who after the judgement of State High Court in favour of women folk in Sushila Sawhney V/s others case, tried to bring legislation called Women Disqualification Act in the State Legislature. He also criticized the exploitation of the people of the state, particularly of Jammu region, in the name of Maharaja Hari Singh by Omar and Co. on the State Subject issue, though the Kashmiri leadership and those at the helm of affairs at the Centre had badly treated him. He added that NC leaders even did not incorporate all the Classes of State Subjects as defined in Notification1-L/84 of 20th April 1927, issued by Maharaja Hari Singh. He said that there were provisions of providing citizenship to other persons and companies coming from outside the state if they fulfil the laid down conditions in the notification for class III and Class IV state subject and all categories of state subjects were given the right to vote in assembly elections. He said that in the present laws of Permanent Resident Certificate, a person from outside the state even after residing in the state for a period of one thousand years cannot bestowed with the resident certificate. It is criminal and violation of Human Right that West Pakistan Refugees after seventy years of residing in the State, are deprived of Permanent Resident Certificate and of the benefits accrue because of the certificate.

Defend constitution but don’t involve religion: Bijral

SS BijralDefending constitution is not, but involving religion to make it communal is sheer anti national. It’s expected, therefore, of every responsible citizen to defend constitution but not involve religion. S.S. Bijral, BJP State Spokesperson, said it was most unfortunate and unsuitable of working president National Conference to allege that BJP was making provision of 35-A of Indian Constitution, a Hindu versus Muslim and state versus centre issue. He referred to media reports where Omar Abdullah referring to 35-A before his party delegates at Darhal Rajouri said that. Bijral said raging controversy over 35-A, mistakenly referred as Article of Indian constitution while it is an appendix only, raised by NC and Congress in the state is most unwarranted. He said, the issue of constitutional validity is subjudice in Supreme Court and its ill advisable and inappropriate to give it a communal tinge. The constitution is supreme with jurisdiction over whole country with PM Modi government having responsibility to ensure, it best serves people interest above consideration of caste, creed and religion, he said. Former IGP, Bijral said Modi led government focussed on country development is out and out on removing hurdles coming in way of upliftment of poor. For this he said in three years rule PM Modi led NDA government scrapped 1159 obsolete laws as against total 1301 laws junked in 64 years. Feeling constrained by subjudice status of 35-A, he said unaware of SC judgement, left to NDA government if the provision closely embraced by Kashmir leadership comes to obstruct development of J&K, crown of India, it has to go like 1159 other laws. Appreciating opposition parties have the best trust reposed in SC as exhibited in ‘Triple Talaq’ Bijral expected that NC and Congress would continue maintaining peaceful atmosphere, essential for development, in the sensitive state. The state has suffered for too long in exclusion, he added.

Save youth establish special courts for NDPSA cases: Bijral

SS BijralThe alarming proportion with which drug abuse is catching up with our youth, with girls included, is major worry of society. It’s high time to save youth J&K establishes special courts for NDPSA cases for speedy deterrent effect. Noticing J&K is listed high on drug abuse by Supreme Court and State High Court with 2734 cases pending trial at start of 2016 and pendency swelling up to 3079 cases at year end, S.S. Bijral BJP state spokesperson pressed the administration with need to urgently establish special courts for speedy trial and deterrent effect.

Pointing that courts of District and Sessions Judges, the only empowered to try such cases, being over burdened, he stressed for establishing of ‘special courts’ as provided under the NDPSA and further directed by Supreme Court on Jan 23, 2013 and DB of state High Court on July 2014 for needed fear & prevention. Pointing that large no. of 213 cases ended in acquittals against only 45 in conviction, was enough morale booster for drug mafia, he said, concerned authorities need to examine failing factors that harmed larger interests of the state and future generation.

भारतीय जनता पार्टी के जिला प्रधान राकेश गुप्ता ने पूर्व मुख्यमंत्री के बयान की कड़ी निंदा की।

Lotus Logo copyभारतीय जनता पार्टी के जिला प्रधान राकेश गुप्ता ने पूर्व मुख्यमंत्री उमर अब्दुल्ला के उस बयान की कड़ी निंदा की है जिसमें वह बार बार पाकिस्तान से बातचीत करने की सलाह देते हैं । उमर अब्दुल्ला को मालूम होना चाहिए कि पाकिस्तान में कोई एक हुक्मरान नहीं है वहां पर सरकार आर्मी और आई एस आई की अलग अलग हुकूमत है और वह एकदूसरे का वर्चस्व मानते ही नहीं तो वहां पर बातचीत किससे की जाए। पूर्व प्रधानमंत्री माननीय अटल बिहारी वाजपेयी स्वयं बस पर बैठकर लाहौर पहुंचे थे उसके पहले भी और उसके बाद भी भारत की तरफ से कई प्रयास हो चुके हैं। वर्तमान प्रधानमंत्री माननीय नरेन्द्र मोदी भी इसके लिए प्रयास कर चुके हैं, मगर वहां की आई एस आई और आर्मी इसमें बाधा डालते हैं तो उमर अब्दुल्ला बताएं कि बातचीत किससे की जाए। पाकिस्तान में भी हजारों लोग मिलिटेंसी में मारे जा चुके हैं और आए दिन धमाके होते रहते हैं, स्कूलों में,मस्जिदों में,दरगाहों में लोग मारे जा रहे हैं मगर वहां की सरकार चुप है और बेबस है क्योंकि वहां पर आतंकवादी, सेना व आई एस आई सरकार के कंट्रोल में नहीं है ,वहां पर बातचीत की भी जाए तो किससे क्योंकि सरकार नाम की कोई चीज वहां नहीं है और असमर्थ सरकार से की गई बातचीत को यह लोग नहीं मानते । उमर अब्दुल्ला को इस बात का भली भांति ज्ञान है मगर वह तोते बाली रट लगाते रहते हैं कि पाकिस्तान से बात करो। अब तो अमरीका ने भी वहां पर पल रहे आतंकवाद को लेकर चेतावनी दी है मगर यह कुत्ते की दूम की तरह हैं जो कभी भी सीधी नहीं हो होगी। इसलिए वह अपनी सलाह अपने पास ही रखें तथा सरकार व भारतीय सेना को हालात से निपटने दें। राकेश गुप्ता ने कहा कि भाड़े के आतंकवादियों ने कश्मीर में जो आतंकवाद का साम्राज्य स्थापित कर रखा है और सीमाओं का का जो बार बार उलंघन कर रहा है उससे साफ जाहिर है कि उसकी मंशा पाकिस्तान में ही अलग पाकिस्तान बनाने की है जैसे कि 1971 में हो चुका है।

Prof. Virender Gupta while reacting to the statements of Farooq Abdullah about Article 35A

Prof. Virender GuptaBJP State Spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta while reacting to the statements of Farooq Abdullah, G.A. Mir, Tariq Hameed Karra, Omar Abdullah and other leaders of National Conference and Congress about Article 35A said that these parties are beating the drums on the issue which is pending in the Supreme Court and no judgement has been so far delivered. Their noise may be because of the fact that they are on weak legs and are afraid of the judgement which they pre-assume may go against the retention of article 35A. The criticism of BJP on the issue is also uncalled for as BJP as a party or the Government at the Centre has not challenged the legality of 35A. These parties and their leaders always remained in search of issues so that they can regain back their base among the public, which has rejected them in the assembly elections. Some of the leaders, including Devender Singh Rana is creating panic among the people of Jammu province while exploiting the people of the Province telling that their culture, identity and demography would be put at stake if the Article 35A is set aside by the Supreme Court, Rana also frighten the Dogras that a large flux of people from rest of the country including business men shall settle in Jammu province, would capture their business and snatch their employment opportunities both in private and the government sectors. Prof. Virender said that is merely an hoax, the fact of the matter is that no person from outside the state is going to settle in the state which have very little resources and potentials to create opportunities for growth and development. The states like Himachal Pradesh or Uttrakhand which have terrain and climatic conditions, mostly similar to Jammu province do not face any such problem of loosing identity change of demography. The Spokesperson said contrary to what is being propaged by Rana the employment opportunity for the people of Jammu province would increase, if big industries are established. He informed the people of Jammu region that Article 35A provides authorities to the state to enact a law to resettle the people who were originally state subjects but have settled in Pakistan or in PoK, in the state of Jammu and Kashmir and added that people of Jammu must be aware of the Resettlement Bill that was passed by State Legislature under the Chief Ministership of Farooq Abdullah that was challenged in the Supreme Court. Prof. Virender said that real challenge that the people of Jammu are facing is from the Kashmir based political parties and Jammu based parties/leaders who act as subservient to Kashmiri leadership. He added that people of Jammu region are not getting their due share in all walks of life, they are being discriminated in government services, in professional education sector, in allocation of development funds and in the overall development of the region. He further said that the greatest danger that the Jammu region, the Dogra land is facing is because of the communal politics of those lead
