KUPWARA, Nov 27: BJP National Executive Member and senior party leader, Dr Darakhshan Andrabi today chaired the BJP party convention at Langate in North Kashmir. It was the first ever mega-scale party meeting held in the area which remained infected with the separatist political upheavals during the past decades. The convention was organized by the Ex-Vice Chairman and sitting councilor of Langate Municipality, Jameel Ahmad Rather in which around 250 people mainly youth from Langate and adjoining villages formally joined the party.
Dr Andrabi along with Jameel Ahmad Rather and senior BJP leader, Abdul Rehman Lone welcomed the new entrants into the party fold. “It was a positive scene to witness the enthusiasm of the people of the area especially the youth for the inclusive and progressive nationalistic ideology of BJP which is day by day squeezing the political space of many old and outdated political parties in Kashmir as youth prefer to associate themselves with the mainstream nationalistic politics of BJP led by the visionary Prime Minister, Narendra Modi ,” said Dr Darakhshan after the joining event in her address.
She hailed the efforts of BJP cadres and party leaders at ground zero who day and night serve the masses without any political exploitation. Dr Andrabi took a dig at the provocative politics of the old rotten political lot who she alleged were habitual of nourishing their sinister political designs by exploiting public sentiments on non-issues. “J&K has come far ahead now, leaving behind the curses of old dynastic politics. Prime Minister’s vision of transforming J&K into a Atma Nirbhar and prosperous entity is being practically implemented by the Manoj Sinha led Government,” said Dr Darakhshan.
She slammed the fantasy-sellers who day and night shout about 370 and 35 A. She also took a dig at those who are stuck at their Statehood restoration chants. “New J&K is the reality and we should live in the real world rather than go to the sellers of falsehood. Statehood, as promised by the Government of India will be restored after the elections are held and the law and order is completely under control. Anti-separatism, anti-terror operations are going on in full swing. We are destined to see very peaceful and prosperous days now,” said BJP National Executive Member. Jameel Ahmad Rather thanked Dr Andrabi for gracing the event.
