Slams Agenda of Alliance, accuses BJP of surrendering interests of Jammu for sake of power
Concerned over moving of bills in Assembly by opposition members to scrap beef ban law, senior BJP leader Prof Hari Om Sunday said the PDP-BJP coalition may not survive after October 3, when the Assembly session begins.
“The PDP-BJP coalition alliance would not survive after October 3,” Hari said while speaking during a seminar organized by Jammu Lawyers Forum (LWF) at Press Club of Jammu, here.
He was referring to the bills moved by opposition NC, independent legislator Er Rashid and CPI (M) legislator Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami in Assembly to scrap beef ban law in the State.
The Assembly session begins on October 3.
The opposition members moved the bills to scrap ban beef law after High Court’s Jammu wing while hearing a PIL directed DGP to enforce ban on sale of beef in the State and act against those violating the ban.
The PIL was filed by BJP leader Parmoksh Seth, who is now State’s Additional Advocate General .
Hari said if corrective measures are not taken on time, the prevailing situation may put Jammu on boil.
Taking a dig at “Agenda of Alliance” framed by PDP and BJP for running the coalition government in the State, he said it has crossed all the constitutional limits and virtually declared Jammu and Kashmir not part of India.
“It is not an agenda of alliance but PDP’s manifesto, which has been adopted by the coalition,” Hari said adding the Agenda of Alliance has empowered the government to facilitate dialogue between India and Pakistan and between India and separatists.
Alleging that Agenda of Alliance challenges J&K’s integrity with India, he said, “PDP and BJP are almost visualizing J&K as a sovereign entity”.
Claiming that Agenda of Alliance has formally delegitimized the region of Jammu and divided it into Chenab Valley Region, Pir Panjal region and the plains of Jammu, he said, “What can be a better support to the creation of Greater Muslim Kashmir than visualizing breaking up of a secular Jammu into communal compartments”.
The BJP leader demanded that Agenda of Alliance should be withdrawn forthwith to dispel the fears of Jammu people.
He further alleged that BJP, which used to claim defender of AFSPA and Jammu’s interest, has surrendered the interests of the region for the sake of being in power.
Negating that there is improvement in ground situation in the State, Hari said if there is no disturbance then Chief Minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed, Congress MP Ghulam Nabi Azad and Hurriyat leaders should give up their security cover.
