STATE TIMES NEWS
SRINAGAR: Tarun Chugh, BJP’s National General Secretary and Jammu and Kashmir in-charge on Thursday said that during the three decades rule by parties associated with the Mufti, Abdullah and Gandhi families, Jammu and Kashmir was known as the terrorist capital of India.
It witnessed the largest migration in the history of the country, mass massacres of Hindus, months-long curfews, and now, these parties are alleging that BJP is responsible for terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir, he said.
Chugh pointed out that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has transformed Jammu and Kashmir into a hub for tourism and development. Since the BJP came to power, terrorism has almost ceased in the Valley, he added.
“The abrogation of Article 370 brought peace to Jammu and Kashmir and holistic development is taking place across the Union Territory since 2019”, he said, adding that the people are experiencing positive changes brought about by the government, and they are content. Therefore, the opposition’s allegations are baseless, and their panic is evident he said.
Regarding elections, Tarun Chugh said that in the last DDC, Panchayat and BDC elections, opposition parties formed an alliance. However, despite this alliance, lakhs of people came out to vote for Prime Minister Modi, and many secretly voted against the alliance. Mufti and Abdullah, who were arch rivals, formed an alliance due to declining support and public discontent. The people of Jammu and Kashmir will not accept this alliance, demonstrating that they are aware of the true nature of these parties, he said. Chugh said that only the Election Commission can announce and make decisions regarding polls. BJP is always ready for elections, as it upholds and respects democracy, he added.
