STATE TIMES NEWSJAMMU: To spread awareness among people regarding abrogation of Article 370 by the Union Government, the State BJP held an interaction programme on the theme ‘Abrogation of Article 370 and its impact in the region’. A number of representatives of various social organisations and prominent persons of trading fraternity attended the event conducted at party headquarters, Trikuta Nagar. BJP State President, Ravinder Raina and Union MoS in PMO, Dr Jitendra Singh were the main speakers, while State General Secretary (Org) Ashok Kaul, State General Secretaries Dr Narinder Singh, Yudhvir Sethi; JMC Mayor Chander Mohan Gupta and State Vice-President Th Narain Singh also shared the stage during the event and presented their ideas before the gathering. The event was organized by the BJP’s Liasion Committee comprising of Narain Singh, V K Sethi and H S Pammi. Shashi Vaid, Labba Ram Gandhi, Bhupinder Singh, Gagan Bhatia, F C Satiya, Dev Anand Gill (Valmiki Samaj), Sat Paul (Teacher Association), Neeraj Anand (Trader Federation), Yash Paul Gupta (Retailer Federation), Nitesh Jandiyal (Bishnah Bar Association), Bodh Raj (Sanatan Dharam), Om Prakash Gupta (Mahajan Sabha), Sham Langar (All India Shiromani Mahajan Sabha), Ladies from Brahmkumari Ashram, Guru Ravi Das Sabha, Joint Action Committee General , Murari Lal (Kashyap Rajput Sabha), Kashmiri Pandit Sabha (Ambphalla), Sanjay Pandoh (Dogra Khatri Sabha), Anoop (Kanak Mandi), Bari Brahmana Industry Association, Bishan Singh (Amar Kshatriya Rajput Sabha) and hundreds of other prominent persons from various social organisations also actively participated in the event. Ravinder Raina, while addressing the gathering, termed the moment as the golden phase of history. He said that a dream became reality only due to sacrifices made by the likes of Dr Syama Prasad Mookherjee, Pt Prem Nath Dogra, Rishi Kumar Koushal, martyrs of Sunderbani, Jourian, Ramban, Hiranagar and others. He said that our past generations have witnessed the time, when one had to wait for 6 months to get permit for immersing holy ashes of their expired family-members at Haridwar. “This Article came into existence as result of a deep-rooted conspiracy hatched by Pt Nehru and Sheikh Abdullah. In Round Table Conferences of the Rulers of Princely States in London, Maharaja Hari Singh had made clear his intensions and all the later events were dramatised for twisting history just to benefit Congress and NC,” he added. Terming Article 370 as miscarriage of history and perhaps biggest blunder in history, Dr Jitendra Singh said that a severe kind of psychological isolation existed due to existence of 370 and this fact is never discussed due to Kashmir-centric politics by a small section of Kashmiri leaders supported by Congress. He said that within a period of five months we would witness a change due to historic decision. He emphasized that it was not done overnight but is the result of sacrifices made by three generations. He said that we have got the opportunity to be a part of this great moment and pray that soon we would witness work on PoJK. Dr Narender Singh, in his address, praised the Liasion Committee, for the untiring efforts they have put in for organising the programme. Termed it as a historic decision, he said that the reorganisation of the system will do justice with all regions. Narain Singh, in his address, said that this particular step has opened-up avenues for development of State. He said that we all have gathered here to know the facts and truth behind the bold decision so as to counter the negative propagandas besides defeating disruptive forces. The proceedings of the programme were conducted by V K Sethi.
