BJP foresees to form next government in J&K on its own

Buoyed over the ‘huge vote share’ it got across J&K in the recently held LokSabha polls, the BhartiyaJanata Party, state unit, Sunday asserted to form the next government in the state on its own.

At a marathon meeting at Jammu, the BJP working committee
passed a resolution to this extent. The meeting was chaired by BJP state chief
Ravinder Raina, while senior BJP leader and minister of state in the PMO,
DrJitendera Singh also attended the meeting. According to the resolution passed
in the daylong meeting, the working committee thanked the people of J&K and
the party workers for the “historic mandate of 46 per cent vote share” and
bagging of three Parliamentary seats in Jammu and Ladakh by record margins.

“The meeting noted that such a huge mandate enjoins upon it
the greater responsibility since the people would have much greater hopes and
aspirations from the party,” reads the copy of the resolution.

“The meeting resolved to ensure that our elected
representatives (MPs) remain in constant touch with their constituencies by
nominating their representatives and by opening their offices in their
respective constituencies apart from personal visits and interactions.” 

The resolution stated that the meeting demanded de-freezing
of one-third and 24 reserved seats for Pakistan administered Kashmir and allot
them to Jammu region where displaced PaK residents are settled since 1947-48.

“The working committee demanded political reservation for
the Schedule Tribes of the state,” the resolution states.

The meeting, as per the resolution, expressed its serous
concerned over the “gross injustice” done to the Ladakh and Jammu regions by
previous NC governments through “inequitable delimitation of assembly. “The meeting
reinforced the party’s demand for fresh delimitation,” the resolution reads.

The working committee resolved to carry forward the
“momentum of the Parliamentary polls and work tirelessly to form the next
government in the State on its own.”

A source privy to the meeting, said that MoS in PMO and the
newly elected BJP MP from Udhampur-Kathua LS seat, DrJitendera Singh in his
address stressed that BJP’s fight was against the “menace of militancy not
against Kashmiris.”

“Singh laid special emphasis that BJP’s priority is to take
every single citizen of all the three regions along to fulfill its mission of
making J&K a model state. He said that the recently held LokSabha polls saw
17 lakh voters voting in favour of BJP,” a source, present in the meeting told
Greater Kashmir.

“Singh maintained that all these 17 lakh voters must be made
members of the BJP in all three regions of the State.”

Speaking on the occasion, BJP State chief Ravinder Raina
briefed the meeting that each representative must reach out to people across
the State.

“He (Raina) stated that BJP was leading in 35 assembly seats
in the recently held LokSabha polls and that this opportunity should be cashed
in on to ensure that next government belongs to the BJP alone,” he said.

Talking to Greater Kashmir, BJP general secretary
(organization) Ashok Koul said that major decisions were taken in the working
committee meeting. “We urged the Governor Satya Pal Malik to take note of the
electricity disruptions in Jammu region during summer and in Kashmir during
winter and also the early completion of developmental projects in the State,”
he said.

“We also made our demanded that the reservation of Assembly
seats for PaK residents should be given to the displaced residents of PaK
living in Jammu region since 1947.”

Present in the meeting, BJP state spokesman Altaf Thakur
said that all the members in the meeting vowed to carry forward the Prime
Minister NarenderaModi’s slogan—“Sab KaSaath, Sab KaVikas,” stating that this
time BJP leadership has added one more word to it “SabhakaVishwas.”

“Our primary focus will be to keep the flock together in
J&K irrespective of caste, creed or religion,” Thakur said.
