BJP warns more surgical strikes in PoK  if Pak continues support to terrorism

Avtar Bhat
Jammu, Jan 6: The BJP today made it clear that country will not make any compromise on terrorism unleashed by Pakistan and the surgical strikes executed with utmost precision by Indian armed forces have shown to the world that India is led by a government  that is committed to securing its borders and interests with determination and will power.
A political resolution adopted by the party at its National Executive and  placed on its official website termed the decision of surgical strikes taken  by Prime Minister Narendra Modi a bold initiative. While congratulating the Prime Minister and his other concerned ministerial colleagues for the decision of responding appropriately to the terror tactics of India’s  recalcitrant neighbor, it said “we salute our brave soldiers for valiantly fighting and laying down their lives to secure our borders and honour. That the strikes have had the required effect on our neighbour can be gauged from the fact that there is near normal silence on the Indo-Pak border in the last few weeks and also the initiative taken by Pakistan to call for DGMO level talks between the two countries”.
The copy of resolution which is in the possession of Excelsior was moved by Union Home Minster and senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh and it was seconded by Chief Minister of Chatisgarh, Dr Raman Singh.
It said India has always demonstrated  its urge and desire for peaceful and friendly relations with all its neighbours including Pakistan. PM Modi’s motto – ‘Together We Grow’ – envisions a combined and integrated future of all the Indian Ocean neighbours. It is in the interest of Pakistan and also the bilateral relations between our two countries that the Nawaz Sheriff Government takes concrete and credible steps to end terror factories on its soil and the clandestine support extended to them by Pakistan’s official agencies like the ISI, the resolution added.
“Terrorism is today seen by the democratic and civilized world as a scourge whereas Pakistan continues to use it as State policy”, resolution pointed out. It continued to push terrorists into India and other countries of the world and engages in terror attacks and promotes violent insurgent and separatist movement in J&K, it added.
The resolution said the surgical strikes ordered by the Prime Minister and the total rejection of the separatist agenda by the people and governments of J&K and the Centre are a categorical assertion to Pakistan that its ulterior designs shall never succeed and the government led by PM Modi will continue to demonstrate zero tolerance for terrorism; and it reserves every right to respond to such threats in an appropriate and out-of-the-box manner in future also.
Earlier  addressing Party National office bearers  BJP national  president Amit Shah gave a stern warning to Pakistan saying  the Narendra Modi Government may again take “0ut of the box” action against Pakistan if it continues to indulge in a proxy war against India.
He said the Indian Army’s surgical strikes against terrorist launch pads in Pakistan administered Kashmir and Center’s move to demonetize Rs 1000 and Rs 500 notes has given a blow to terrorism in J&K and Naxalism in other states of country.
Shah while hailing the September 29 military action against terrorists warned Pakistan that India could again take “out of the box” action if Pakistan persists with its policy of exporting terrorists to India ”, party sources said.
In his address Shah also took serious exception to attacks on party workers and office in West Bengal after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested Trinamool Congress MP Sudip Bandyopadhyay in Chit Fund scam.
He also took strong exception to attack on party workers by Communists in Kerala and said that this can’t be tolerated in a democracy.
While Shah delivered the inaugural address the Prime Minster Narendra Modi will deliver valedictory speech to the two day NE meet concluding tomorrow.
The Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitely will move the economic resolution in the concluding session tomorrow.
The National Executive meet which was later inaugurated by Shah and Prime Minister, Narendra Modi assumed significance against the backdrop of the Assembly polls in UP, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Manipur and Goa scheduled between February 4 and March 8.
During the political resolution the NE extended its full support to PM’s another path-breaking initiative in the electoral reforms arena by calling for simultaneous polls to Central and State legislatures. The NE opined that such a move together with several other important reforms would pave way for cleaner and healthier electoral practices in the country. The NE called for a wider debate on PM’s call among the political parties, intelligentsia and the voters at large.
The resolution said as the country is celebrating the Birth Centenary of Pt. Deendayal Upadhyay, the ideological mentor of the nationalist movement, this year.inspired by his Antyodaya vision the Modi Government has taken up countless initiatives for the welfare and wellbeing of the poor, downtrodden, farmers, daily wage earners, workers and senior citizens.
The Party has made it clear that “we are here not merely for reforms”. It said “reform is good, but it is largely about tinkering the existing system”. PM Modi’s vision is transformative. All the schemes and programs launched by the Government are intended to bring about a fundamental course correction and transformation at the grassroots. A new culture of honesty, discipline, commitment and patriotism is the end goal of these measures by BJP Government, it added. The NE lauded the PM’s relentless efforts in leading from the front to usher in a new work culture and ethics where honesty is respected and rewarded and dishonest are shown the path of reform.
The resolution said the year 2016 has been a very successful year for the BJP as a party too. In the electoral arena, the year began with the BJP entering the North East with a bang by winning Assam Assembly elections with two-thirds majority in alliance with its partners. The year has ended on another happy note with 33 MLAs from the PPA in Arunachal Pradesh, including the Chief Minister, opting to join the BJP. The NE welcomed the new BJP CM Pema Khandu into the BJP Parivar. Arunachal Pradesh became the 10th State ruled by BJP and the 14th ruled by BJP alliance, it added.
It said the BJP has registered convincing victories in the by-elections held to the Lok Sabha and different Vidhan Sabhas in states like Assam, Madhya Pradesh and Arunachal Pradesh. Its showing in the Left-dominated Tripura, where it is slowly but surely emerging as the credible alternative to the Left Front pushing back parties like Congress and TMC, can’t be overlooked. In Bengal too, the Party has weathered the brute politics of the ruling party and emerged as a strong runner up in recent by-polls, it added.
The Party has registered thumping victory in the local body elections held in states like Maharashtra, Chattisgarh, Gujarat and Rajasthan. BJP’s landslide victory in the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation elections needs special mention where it has almost swept the polls winning 21 out of 26 seats, the resolution said. It needs to be remembered that most of these elections were held after the announcement of demonetization scheme by PM Modiji. It is not an overstatement to claim that the results are a vindication of the unqualified popular support to the demonetization program.
Party has concluded training programs in most of the states and preparing to reach out to the people under the banner of Deendayal Upadhyay Birth Centenary celebrations.
The NE strongly criticized the anti-people and anti-democracy acts and deeds of the Opposition parties. “The behaviour of the parties led by the Congress Party in stalling the entire session of the Parliament betrays their scant respect for democratic institutions. Obstruction and obfuscation has become the hallmark of the Opposition politics in the country” the resolution added.
It said inn states like Bengal normal functioning of the political activity has become difficult under the draconian TMC rule. Attacks on political workers of the BJP have increased in Bengal and Kerala. The recent attacks on BJP headquarters in Kolkata and scores of other places in Bengal point to the extreme and violent form of political intolerance practised by the ruling TMC. Dozens of Karyakartas were injured in these attacks. The red terror in Kerala continues to rob the lives of dedicated Karyakartas, the latest victim being Sri Radhakrishnan. It is a sad commentary on the bureaucracy and law and order machinery that they too seem to have become mute spectators while lawlessness and crime perpetrates.
The resolution was also critical of extreme appeasement politics of the governments in the states which has led to sever communal tension and strife in these states. Government machinery has been misused to allow the perpetrators of communal violence go scot-free if not clandestinely support them. The failure of the TMC government in Bengal in safeguarding the majority law-abiding community is most glaring in the recent Dhulagarh riots where the rioters went about torching houses and shouting slogans like Pakistan Zindabad while the state police had looked the other way, it added.
The NE bemoaned the silence of the larger public institutions like media and intelligentsia over the fascist oppression of fundamental political rights in these states. Their silence is baffling even when their own colleagues are being subjected to violation of their fundamental rights like free speech etc. The NE wishes remind the so-called torchbearers of human rights and civil liberties that in such matters their silence tantamount to complicity only.
The NE expressed sympathy for the people affected by communal and political violence in these states. In its history of several decades the BJP has faced such political vandalism several times before and knows how to tackle it in a democratic manner. The NE warned that it would intensify democratic protest programs to awaken people to the misrule of the governments in Bengal and Kerala.
The NE called upon the Party cadres to use the Centenary Celebrations of the ideological mentor Pt. Upadhyay to reach out to far and wide and carry his message of clean public life and Antyodaya. The NE also appealed to the cadres to actively participate in the events associated with the 350thPrakashotsav of Shri Guru Gobind Singhji and Centenary of Sri Nanaji Deshmukh.
The resolution said BJP viewed the forthcoming Assembly elections as an opportunity to retain or regain power in all the states including Manipur. People of the country are yearning to follow PM Modiji’s development politics. The BJP appealed to the Karyakartas in the poll-bound states to work hard so that it can secure the mandate of the people and form governments in all the five states.
