Jammu and Kashmir BJP leader Prof Hari Om today suggested the party to break its alliance with the PDP as the popularity of BJP in Jammu province has dipped to the lowest levels since it became partner in the government in the state.
In an open letter to BJP national President Amit Shah, he said, BJP had made “abject surrender” while forming a “governance alliance” with PDP and the “Agenda of Alliance” was now being commonly described by the people of Jammu as ‘Agenda of Betrayal’ and ‘a new charter of bondage’.
It appears to be an agenda of political compromise on almost everything for which the BJP was voted for by the people of Jammu, he said.
“Through this alliance with PDP, we can easily see that the BJP has been hijacked in a direction which will facilitate the creation of “Greater Muslim Kashmir” eventually wrecking the integrity and sovereignty of the nation,” he said.
“The situation since has further deteriorated for the BJP in the state and it would not be any exaggeration to say that the popularity of BJP in Jammu province has dipped to the lowest levels since it started functioning in the state”, Prof Hari Om, Political advisor of the President of the BJP in Jammu and Kashmir, said.
He said the reason for the unprecedented anger and hatred against BJP in the Jammu province has to be seen in a broader context of why BJP was given a massive mandate by the people of Jammu rather than its bungling on the AIIMS issue.
Granting of AIIMS will certainly assuage the hurt feelings but the actual remedy for the predicament in which the BJP is today is coming out of the present government and owning its actual role in the state. He added.
