Jammu,October 19(Scoop News) - NC-Congress coalition should stop using people like Syed Ali Shah Geelani to repeat the history. The government should concentrate on the development and welfare of the masses instead of allowing the anti-national and separatists to indulge in provoking the religious sentiments of the Hindus across the country. This was stated by BJP National Executive Member & MLA Jammu East Ashok Khajuria on the occasion of the beginning of the developmental work of laying of tiles and constructing drains besides inspecting the work of under construction Sulabh Shouchalaya in Kanji House area of W.No. 7 falling in Jammu East constituency.
Ashok Khajuria, while reacting to the recent statement of Syed Ali Shah Geelani opposing the construction of road to the holy cave of Baba Amarnath ji, said that it has become a matter of routine for the Kashmir based political parties and separatist organizations to make such statements which are aimed at pleasing the Kashmiris and hurting the religious sentiments of Hindus. He said that it was the result of the anti-Hindu approach of a handful of Kashmiri leaders that led to 2008—historic 63 day long agitation, which witnessed massive anger among the masses and about two dozen people sacrificed their lives for their religion.
Ashok Khajuria said that the Kashmir based conditional leaders of NC and opportunist leaders of Congress have always worked towards dividing the people on one pretext or the other. For this unholy game, they have been using Syed Ali Shah Geelani and other of his ilk to divide the people on communal lines in order to divert the attention of the masses from the failure of the government and escape their wrath. He, once again, advised the NC-Congress coalition government to take lesson from the history and do not indulge in politics of divide and rule. He also took the Jammu based leaders of regional parties to task who have been using their energy at the behest of the separatist elements and appealing them to take part in the electoral process ignoring the fact that these are the elements who have been creating insecurity, terror and division among the masses to run their industry.
Khajuria also criticized the CAPD department for taking such decisions which cannot be tolerated as the same are not in the interest of a poor family. He said that fixing the monthly quota of atta to 20kg and that of rice to 10kg per family is one more step of the anti-people government to drive them towards hunger and suicides.
Khajuria was accompanied by BJP Distt. President Rajesh Gupta, Senior leader Bansi Lal Bharti, Mandal President Sunil Dogra, Ex-corporator of the Ward Gulshan Mahajan, SC leader Jagjeevan Lal and dozens of prominent social activists and office bearers of the Bazar Association.
Meanwhile BJP has condoled the death of three civilians killed in across the border firing in Uri sector of Kashmir valley. In a condolence meeting held in Srinagar under the leadership of Dr. Ali Mohd. Mir, Senior BJP leader from Kashmir, 2-minutes silence was observed for the peace of the departed soul.
Dr. Ali strongly condemned the Pakistan’s designs and accused Congress-led UPA government for its weak policy towards Pakistan, which has led a rein of terror and killing and Kashmir and other parts of the country. He also alleged that the Omar-led NC-Congress coalition government is responsible for the killing of sarpanchs and panchs in absence of their empowerment.
