BJP indulging in politics of coercion, intimidation by using ED, CBI: Harsh

Excelsior Correspondent

UDHAMPUR, July 11: Accusing the BJP of giving frivolous excuses and issuing vague and nauseating statements over the induction of Pak trained militants and LeT Commander in the party fold, former minister and AAP leader Harsh Dev Singh today said that no facade of deceptive posturing could hide its real intentions of grabbing power by hook or by crook.
He said that with power being the sole motive of the saffron brigade it could go to any extent, use any agency or organization without any qualms of conscience to fulfill its cherished objectives. Public interest, probity and constitutional propriety having been sacrificed at the altar of power politics, the BJP had apparently endorsed the Machiavellian concept of politics that ends justify the means, Singh maintained.
Addressing public meetings at Prowa Jagir, Bindla, Mada, Chabba, Puchount and Gujad in Chenani constituency, Singh said that BJP was known to be using the ED and CBI and other Govt and Vigilance organizations to silence all critical voices in the past. Several opposition leaders, businessmen, civil society members, media men, writers etc were made to fall in line by a highly ascendant BJP by using the coercive apparatus of the state. Dissent continued to be bludgeoned and inconvenient voices choked through the iron fist of police and other state and Central agencies including IT, NIA, CVC etc.
Latest, in the list of BJP’s intimidatory apparatus seems to be the LeT and other trained militants who are not only being enrolled in the party but are being assigned significant positions as senior office-bearers in the Party. He said that exposure regarding the affiliation of LeT Commander Talib Hussain and Udaipur terrorist Riaz Akhtari with BJP was made by the public and media and that too after they had executed various acts of terror in J&K and outside, Singh alleged.
Describing the BJP regime as devious, totalitarian, undemocratic and sinister, Singh said that people were fast recognizing the real face and character of BJP and would teach it a befitting lesson shortly.
