Jammu, December 22 (Scoop News) – Jammu Political Advisor to the Chief Minister Devender Singh Rana said that the BJP and the PDP are unleashing a wave of communal and divisive politics in the state in a bid to create political instability for petty political gains.
Rana who was addressing the gathering of supporters and party men of BCP whose State President Rohit Bali joined National Conference here today at party headquarters Sher-e-Kashmir Bhawan said that the National Conference will not allow the fringe communal elements either in Jammu or in Kashmir to play the regional card because the design of these elements is detrimental to the cause of the state of Jammu & Kashmir and is not acceptable to the people of the state.
Rana said BJP is a fountain head of communal politics in the country and was now spreading communalism in the state for petty political gains. He said BJP has lost its moorings in the state and is now struggling to hopelessly reestablish itself by raising issues with communal overtones thereby attempting to disturb the secular fabric of the state.
The Political Advisor said the PDP which lacks ideology and is fighting internal crises due to dissension within the party leadership is trying to somehow keep itself afloat by indulging in divisive politics so that the focus shifts from the internal dynamics of that party (PDP).
Rana said state had always suffered because of the divisive politicking of negative elements who occasionally surface but the people of all regions and religions were now unanimous over the need to protect a harmonious atmosphere.
He said National Conference under the dynamic leadership of Omar Abdullah will fight all such forces and defeat them in their nefarious designs because Jammu & Kashmir is an epitome of secularism, brotherhood and communal harmony and nobody will be allowed to disturb the peaceful harmonious secular fabric of the state.
Rana welcomed the new entrants into the party fold and called upon them to work unitedly and strengthen the hands of party and its leadership.
Welcoming the new entrants into the party fold Rattan Lal Gupta asked them to play their important role in making development process a success and helping in reaching out people in all corners of the state for peace and development.
Gupta said the joining of large number of youth, men and women from all across the state in the National Conference is indicative of the faith and trust people reposed in the dynamic leadership of Omar Abdullah.
Expressing full faith and confidence in the policy and programmes of National Conference and in the dynamism of its leadership, Rohit Bali said that that National Conference – Congress coalition government has proved its metal and public service approach during last over four years.
“We have been highly impressed by the performance of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and his government. The performance and sincerity of Omar Abdullah has made us to join National Conference”, he added.
Vijay Lakshmi Dutta, Chander Mohan Sharma, Mohinder Gupta, Pardeep Bali, Surinder Singh Bunty and other National Conference leaders who were also present on the occasion welcomed Rohit Bali into the party fold and hoped that their joining into the party will further strengthen the party.
