Jammu: Union minister and senior BJP leader Jitendra Singh on Tuesday said the absence of peace in the Valley was a “cumulative outcome” of nearly half a century of “misrule” of the Congress.
He also lashed out at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for claiming that Prime Minister Narendra Modi “destroyed” the Peoples Democratic Party by making an alliance with it.
“Whatever he (Rahul Gandhi) has said doesn’t reflect the popular sentiments of the people of Jammu and Kashmir or people of India at large. In fact, its the Congress which has been over the years making opportunistic alliances alternately with one or the other regional party in Kashmir,” he added.
Singh said the BJP-led governments at the Centre and in the state has taken up the “herculean task” of restoring normalcy in the state.
“The absence of peace in the Valley was a cumulative outcome of nearly half a century of misrule of the Congress party,” he told reporters here. He said the youth of the state are very keen on joining the path of development led by PM Modi.
“Look at the statistics we have. So many toppers from the militancy-affected areas. They know that their future lies with this caravan led by Modi and they don’t want to miss out on these opportunities,” he added.
