steps to second partition: Anti Jammu attitude of BJP

  • tags: no_tag

    • The BJP, the political organ of the RSS, ditched the people of Jammu and outraged their sensitivities in 1998, when it opposed on the floor of the Assembly the official bill that sought the establishment of Mata Vaishno Devi Technical University at Katra and Agriculture University at RS Pura. The BJP opposed the historical bill overlooking the fact that the people of Jammu had fought relentlessly for the establishment of these two universities for over 65 days and had also observed a 17-day-long continuous bandh.
    • The year 2010 witnessed the BJP crossing all the limits. When the Panthers Party gave bandh call to register its opposition to the official move aimed at snatching the citizenship rights of women of the state. Instead of supporting the women cause, the BJP leadership opposed the bandh call saying that "it is not our duty to make the bandh a success".
    • The role the BJP has been playing, particular since 1998, has made the people believe that it would be crime against them if they pin their faith in this patently anti-Jammu party. That they observed bandh -- which was by any standard an impressive show -- despite the negative attitude of the RSS and the BJP could be construed as a verdict against these two outfits.
