NC has no moral au­thor­ity to ac­cuse BJP of 'di­vi­sive' pol­i­tics: Brig Gupta

The Northlines - - STATE - NL COR­RE­SPON­DENT JAMMU, DEC 07

Though peo­ple no more take Dr Fa­rooq Ab­dul­lah se­ri­ously, yet he con­tin­ues to is­sue state­ments in the hope that the sink­ing boat of his dy­nas­tic party NC may find some sym­pa­thiz­ers who are will­ing to take it to the shore. His tirade against BJP is driven by the fact that Modi gov­ern­ment has ig­nored the Ab­dul­lahs to such an ex­tent that they are en­gulfed with frus­tra­tion and des­per­a­tion, stated Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesper­son of Bharatiya Janata Party. "The ever de­clin­ing vote share cou­pled with ab­hor­rence for his party by the Kash­miri youth and ris­ing graph of BJP has shaken Fa­rooq Ab­dul­lah so badly that his state­ments of­ten tend to be ir­ra­tional and il­log­i­cal," said Brig Gupta. Re­act­ing sharply to Fa­rooq's charge against BJP for "mas­ter­ing com­mu­nal di­vide within In­dia," Brig Gupta said, "If pro­tect­ing the in­ter­ests of the ma­jor­ity is "di­vi­sive" ac­cord­ing to Fa­rooq then what would he term the Nc-congress vote bank pol­i­tics which is based on play­ing with the sen­ti­ments of Hin­dus against Mus­lims and the sen­ti­ments of Mus­lims against Hin­dus?" "NC has mas­tered the art of play­ing Mus­lim card in Mus­lim area of the State and Hindu card in Hindu ar­eas to mis­lead the vot­ers with­out any re­gard for peo­ple and the na­tion", he added.he said on the other hand BJP pol­icy is jus­tice for all and ap­pease­ment to none. Brig Gupta re­minded Dr Fa­rooq that NC has no moral au­thor­ity to ac­cuse BJP of "di­vi­sive" pol­i­tics since NC un­der his fa­ther Sheikh Mo­ham­mad Ab­dul­lah is the har­bin­ger of com­mu­nal and di­vi­sive pol­i­tics in

J&K which is be­ing pur­sued by his heirs as­sid­u­ously. From 'Quit Kash­mir' move­ment to 'Greater Au­ton­omy' ev­ery move of NC has been com­mu­nal and di­vi­sive. Carv­ing of Mus­lim ma­jor­ity dis­tricts of Doda and Kargil, di­vid­ing

Jammu re­gion on com­mu­nal lines into Chenab Val­ley and Pir­pan­jal re­gion, chang­ing the names of towns and vil­lages in­clud­ing his­tor­i­cal mon­u­ments in Kash­mir, de­mo­graphic in­va­sion of Jammu, ex­pul­sion of Kash­miri Pan­dits, Roshani Act, ne­glect of Su­fism, J&K Re­set­tle­ment Act and J&K Per­ma­nent Res­i­dents (Dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion) Bill 2004are some of the ex­am­ples of "di­vi­sive" mind-set of NC and Ab­dul­lahs, claimed Brig Gupta.

"An­other clas­sic ex­am­ple of di­vi­sive pol­i­tics of NC is the de­mand for greater au­ton­omy which has di­vided the state not only com­mu­nally but re­gion­ally as well. The de­mand of greater au­ton­omy was op­posed tooth and nail by the Jammu based po­lit­i­cal par­ties; BJP, Congress and NPP. The peo­ple of Jammu and Ladakh are op­posed to any sort of au­ton­omy and favour to­tal in­te­gra­tion of state with the In­dian Union," as­serted Brig Gupta.
