Bhartiya Janta Party blasted its own coalition government for announcing the ex-gratia relief to the next of kin of the stone throwers killed in law and order situation in the Valley in the last five months of 2016 as “ appeasing the anti-nationals.”
The stone throwers and petrol bomb hurlers were “ anti-nationals” and “ sanctioning of ex-gratia relief amounts to encouraging such anti-state and anti-national tendencies,” BJP legislator Ravindra Raina said while criticizing the announcement made by the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday. She had announced Rs. 5 lakh ex-gratia relief and jobs to the families of those killed and blinded in the Kashmir unrest as a “ humanitarian gesture.”
Chief Minister is head of the PDP, and she is ruling the state with the support of BJP. The party is active partner in the ruling alliance.
The BJP criticism was sought to be underplayed by the Works and parliamentary affairs minister Abdul Reham Veeri saying, “ this is our internal matter, we will sort it out.” Congress and National Conference legislators said that the coalition government’s contradictions were surfacing with the intensity and this is how the government has failed to deliver on anything.”
