STATE TIMES NEWS UDHAMPUR: Sweeping Udhampur by storm, thousands of Panther activists, Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP, Balwant Singh Mankotia State President and other leaders took out a gigantic rally which saw en masse participation of people. The massive rally started from Slathia Chowk and after passing through Kot Road, Ramnagar Chowk, Mukherjee Bazaar, Gole Market Chowk and Apna Bazaar finally culminated at Mini Stadium Town Hall where the NPP leaders addressed the gathering. Addressing the galaxy of people, Harsh Dev tore apart BJP for having sold its every single slogan for the lust of power. He said that multifarious acts of treachery committed by the Saffron Party in quick succession during its sinister rule after its ascendance to power had shocked the conscience of the people particularly its political constituents. With a lengthy unending list of compromises made by BJP for the crumbs of power, its leaders had badly shot themselves in the foot for which Jammu region would have to limp for years, said Harsh. He regretted that the people of Jammu were soaked with the sweat of shame on seeing the Saffron leaders crossing all imaginable limits of sycophancy. “BJP failed to understand that its compulsion to collaborate with PDP in administration was required to co-exist with its need to confront its ally over fundamentals. It unfortunately divorced its bold promises and public interests and sacrificed them at the altar of so called ‘political constraints’ which was nothing but a euphemism for a selfish marriage of convenience”, lamented Harsh. Harsh further rued that while the Army was being belittled and betrayed by the incumbent regime, the anti-nationals and stone pelters were being glorified and pampered. He said that the government’s nod for withdrawal of cases against 11,000 stone pelters who were earlier denounced by the BJP as Pak agents, while it was in opposition had created huge resentment and embitterment amongst the nationalist forces across the country. And as if that was not enough, the dirty alliance had come out with a new Rehabilitation policy for the surrendered terrorists that envisaged a fixed deposit and a fixed monthly honorarium for those terrorists who decide to give up guns after having joined armed insurgency. Making a mention of the unwholesome compromises made by BJP for power including those on Articles 370 and 35A, Singh said that herculean efforts would have be made to strengthen the multiple dents inflected upon Dogra honour by these self proclaimed champions of Jammu Pradesh. “Is there anything more valuable than self pride? And is there anything ghastlier then insult to our honour?” roared Harsh. Balwant Singh Mankotia, State President while accusing BJP of contemptuous maltreatment to Jammu region said, BJP had disdainfully ignored our issues, grievously injured our self esteem and virtually threatened our identity and culture.
