JAMMU, Mar 27: Hitting out hard at dynastic parties, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) general secretary and incharge J&K UT, Tarun Chugh today said that the three parties looted the resources of J&K during their 70 year long rule.
Talking to reporters at Chandigarh today, the BJP leader held these three parties including Congress, National Conference and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) totally responsible for over three decades long turmoil in Jammu and Kashmir. “It was of their wrong and anti people policies that put J&K into flames”, he added.
Chug said these three parties are not only responsible for the mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits -a miniscule minority in Valley but also made people rivals of each other for their vested political ends.
Lambasting these parties for talking about launching Satyagrah, Chugh said that no one is above law and anybody defying rule of law and considering himself to be extra Constitutional authority has to face the action under law. “No body is supreme than law how influential he or she may be ”, he added.
The BJP leader said that the dynastic parties who ruled country and J&K for 70 long years still think that their dynasties are above the law but it is their big mistake. They should understand that no one is above the law and they should now learn to respect the law of the land, he added.
Taking a dig at Congress party, he said it was trying to mislead the people and the comment on a particular caste made by Congress vice president, Rahul Gandhi is a serious issue and an insult to that caste. “I think that the people of country will neither forgive him nor his party for such slanderous comments”, the BJP leader added.
He said whether it is Nehru, Gandhi, Abdullahs or Muftis family, law is equal for all and whosoever disrespects the law has to face the action. He, while commenting on disqualification of Rahul Gandhi, said law has taken its course and there was nothing personal in it.
Chugh also expressed his dismay over the comments of Rahul on great freedom fighter, Veer Savarkar and said Savarkar was a national pride. Some parties and leaders for vote bank politics and in lust for power are trying to defame this great man. These parties should take a lesson from Savarkar’s life who lived and died for his nation.
On Congress leader Adhir Ranjan’s statement that the opposition is neither allowed to talk in Parliament nor outside Parliament, Chugh said everyone has freedom of speech in Indian democracy but they have to maintain some sort of decency.
He said “Not speaking or opposing Government but by insulting a caste on political basis you are liable for action’. “They are misleading nation,. As long as you can you are allowed to speak. There is democracy in the country but you can’t take the nation to ransom or for a ride by disrespecting the law”.
Justifying the Government action on Rahul, he said, “Instead of apologizing from the people for insulting a community they are adopting new tactics to hoodwink the country which will not be tolerated at any cost”.
