Srinagar, Jan 21: Reacting to BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav’s statement that the saffron party will try to find out ‘new friends’ after elections for the formation of government, J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) Vice President and former MLC G N Monga today questioned him as to what happened to ‘old friends’ and allies?
In a statement issued to press here, he said, “They (BJP) could not go well with the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) and just after three years dumped them mid-way. The policies of the BJP totally failed vis-à-vis J&K. People in all the regions of the state have understood the divisive policies of the BJP and in the coming elections people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh will teach them a lesson by rejecting them.”
The Congress leader said not only will BJP be reduced to a non-entity in J&K but across the country in the upcoming Lok Sabha and Assembly polls. “No party in the state or the country will ally with the BJP in future as everybody has understood the reality of the BJP and its protégé RSS,” he added.
He said the initiatives taken on Kashmir during the United Progressive Alliance’s 10-year rule have been reversed and washed away by the BJP Government. “In 2010, when UPA Government was ruling at the Center, it took several initiatives to calm down the situation in Kashmir. Then Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and AICC president Rahul Gandhi were always concerned about the Kashmir situation. However, present Government is least bothered about Kashmir situation and that is the reason for the present crisis in Kashmir,” Monga added.
