Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, Apr 5: Criticising the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, national president, Hindustan Nirman Dal (HND), Parveen Togadia today alleged that socalled Hindutva party has given up all its pro Hindu agenda including construction of Ram temple at Ayodhya and granting justice to exiled Kashmiri Pandits who were thrown out from Valley by Pak backed terrorists.
Togadia who is on two days visit of Jammu region while talking to reporters here this morning said to take on BJP which backtracked from its core issues HND is contesting the ensuing elections from 12 States of the country including J&K and it has fielded 100 candidates in this election.

He said Party has fielded Sushil Sudhan as its candidate from Jammu-Poonch Lok Sabha Constituency and his election symbol is water tank. He appealed the people to vote in his favour. Togadia said his party will guarantee remunerative prices to farmers’, jobs to youth and honour to armed forces.
He said BJP gave up its core issues completely including construction of Ram temple at Ayodhya and resettling of the exiled Pandits from Valley who are still putting up in camps outside the Valley for last 30 years.
He said people of this nation have trusted him in Hindutva and they should now test him in politics. “My organization will work for Jammu cause”, he added.
He said those pelting stones on security forces should be crushed strongly and the Prime Minister who claims on TV of having 56 inch chest should exhibit courage and attack Pakistan which is sending terrorists to the State. Moreover, there is no place for those who say `Pakistan Zindabad’ in India and they should be pushed across the border.
He said it is the Central rule in the State at present and why does not Government act against those shouting anti India slogans. “The Government should take action against them”, he added.
Strongly advocating for abrogation of Article 370 and 35 A, he said both these discriminatory laws should go once for all and his party is committed to the same. We stand for the same principle for which late Dr Shayama Prasad Mookherjee the founding president of Bharatiya Jana Sangh laid down his life in J&K which was to make it an integral part of the country.
The BJP has given up its ideology and it has no love for Dr Mookherjee’s principles for which he laid down his life. There is a paradigm shift in BJP’s policies now and the party has given Bharat Ratna to Pranab Mukherjee the former President of India, he added.
He appealed the people to cast their vote in favour of BJP candidate Sushil Sudan by pressing button on water tank.
