STATE TIMES NEWS RAMNAGAR: While BJP assisted Mehbooba Mufti in implementing a significant part of her agenda during the aborted coalition rule, it hopelessly failed to deliver on even a single promise made by it with its own electorates, said Harsh Dev Singh JKNPP Chairman and former Minister. Addressing a convention of Young Panthers organized by Youth Wing of the party here, Harsh said that the erstwhile rule witnessed the complete eclipse of Jammu related issues with both State and Central Governments desperately wooing Mehbooba Mufti and her Kashmir centric agenda. “The release of a record number of stone-pelters besides other notorious elements in Kashmir was ordered at the behest of Mehbooba Mufti as a part of her political agenda. Likewise, the declaration of unilateral ceasefire which was initially opposed by Army as well as Defence Minister was also ordered in a bid to appease Mehbooba and to promote her political agenda. Similarly, it was in the BJP-PDP government that a highly communal order with regard to the tribal settlements was issued with the saffron Ministers acting as mute spectators. Again the BJP had to eat a humble pie when PDP leadership prevailed in Rasana case refusing to honour the demand of Jammu people for CBI probe,” regretted Singh. With people’s disenchantment growing with each passing day and the tide turning fast against BJP, the lotus that bloomed in Jammu in 2014 shall completely wither before 2019, remarked Singh. He said that NPP was fast occupying the political vacuum in Jammu region. Manju Singh General Secretary JKNPP appealed to the people of all religious faiths to join hands to empower Panthers Party which she claimed was the only secular party of the State. Among those who spoke on the occasion included Pawan Dev Singh, Sunder Rani, Santosh Bhagat, Sunita Sharma, Nisha Ekta, Ashri Devi and Pushpinder Singh.
