Jammu, December 25
Terming BJP’s U-turn on issuance of domicile certificates to hapless and suffering Hindu and Sikh refugees from West Pakistan as inhuman, Jammu for India (JFI) convener Prof Hari Om today said the BJP has “betrayed the 2014 elections mandate.”
He added that the BJP has proved that it is no different from the PDP, the NC, the Congress, the CPI-M, separatists and that the people of Jammu province will surely avenge the betrayal of their mandate as and when they got an opportunity.
“The BJP has betrayed the 2014 mandate. It has betrayed its own constituency for some loaves and fishes of office. It has ditched those who voted for it in large numbers and with great enthusiasm hoping that it, if voted to power, will end the Jammu’s long night of discontent and despair and ensure that Jammu will be treated equal with Kashmir at all levels and in all spheres.”
Lambasting BJP, Prof. Hari Om said that people of Jammu had hoped there be will be rotational chief minister-ship and they will have equal share in the cabinet and that the people of Jammu will obtain their due share in the vital service sector and funds for developmental activities.
He went on to say, “the thankless , ideologically bankrupt and dishonest BJP dashed all the hopes of the people of Jammu province to the ground in a most brazen manner.”
“The BJP has turned out to be worse than the Congress which right from 1947 ditched again and again the people of Jammu and Ladakh and pandered to communalists in Kashmir,” said Prof Hari Om. He added that by doing a shameful U-turn on the issue of domicile certificate, the BJP has only danced to the tunes of separatists and half-separatists in Kashmir.
