STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Congress blamed BJP of misleading the people by contradicting stands on sensitive issues of safeguarding land-rights and job guarantees to the local youth, which shows panic in local cadre of BJP for their political interests, as people are largely unhappy over loosing of all these specific rights available to them and downgrading of the State into UT. JKPCC Chief Spokesperson, Ravinder Sharma, while taking dig at the confusion in BJP over these sensitive matters, said that it shows that all is not well in the BJP and there exist sharp division amongst its cadre due to local pressures and political interests. He said that BJP should stop testing waters and experimenting on sensitive issues, as people can’t be fooled for their rights and interests. “Already there is large scale unrest in Ladakh region with regard to their cultural identity, land rights and jobs to youth. Kashmir Valley maintains an uneasy calm under lot of pressures whereas people and youth in Jammu region have been realising the real threat to their social, cultural and peaceful existence, especially to lands and jobs and started asserting for legal and constitutional guarantees. This leads BJP to tizzy and worried for its political interests. The BJP should come clean and clear over the aspirations of people and to allay their fears of losing valuable rights and identity of Dogra State,” he said. Sharma challenged that if BJP has no fears of facing heat of people, let Centre direct UT administration to stop all coercive and repressive measures against mainstream opposition voices and create conducive political environment to raise genuine issues and aspirations of people.
