BJP mocks Oppn for silence on decision to deport Rohingyas

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, June 12: Castigating the Opposition parties for maintaining stoic silence on the decision of Union Home Ministry to deport Rohingyas to Myanmar, Brig (retd)Anil Gupta State spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said, “the eerie silence maintained by the opposition parties and other self-proclaimed saviours of Jammu is not only perplexing but smells of a conspiracy.
In a statement, issued here today, Brig Gupta said those who brought the Rohingyas to Jammu for the sake of vote bank politics are now worried about they being deported thus giving a serious dent to their manipulations. It is obvious that they were shedding crocodile tears so far to exploit public sentiments while their political agenda is to ensure their presence in Jammu, he added.
He said rather than hailing and appreciating the announcement of the Union Ministry, these parties have gone into hibernation. While rest of the nation has welcomed the decision and hailed the Government for its bold move, the silence on part of the dual-faced politicians of the opposition parties has badly exposed them.”
Brig Gupta also took to task those who had called for a Jammu bandh in the recent past on the issue of Rohingyas and made tall pronouncements regarding their ouster and blamed the BJP for inaction. “Why haven’t till now the outfits involved in the agitation appreciated the Government’s decision for deporting the Rohingyas since this was their major demand? Does it mean that their agitation was “issueless” and driven by a hidden political agenda of cornering the Government and defaming BJP?” questioned Brig Gupta.
The Congress leadership which had used the Bar Association’s shoulder to fire its gun must come out in the open and clarify to the people of Jammu as to what is their actual stand on the issue demanded the spokesperson.
Congress cannot have a dual policy on the issue which varies according to the region. Brig Gupta demanded that Congress president must state his party’s stand in unambiguous terms for the people of Jammu to know where the Congress party stands on this critical issue.
