Bukhari was speaking at a joining programme which was organized at Ward Number – 9, Bari Brahmana. During function Vice Chairman of Municipal Committee, Bari Brahmana, Tarsem Lal Bhagat alongwith his dozens of supporters joined Apni Party in presence of Party president and other senior leaders Ghulam Hassan Mir, Vijay Bakaya and Provincial president, Jammu, Manjit Singh.
Bukhari said people of Jammu had voted for BJP as they spread fear among them against Kashmir and in Kashmir, a similar policy of polarization was adopted by the politicians. Both sides were hands in glove to gain power in any case and the suffering of the people remained unaddressed.
“The policy of regional polarization worked and hurt the interest of both the regions although these traditional political parties i.e., Congress Party, BJP, NC and PDP gain power turn by turn. Some parties fight for the protection of Jammu’s interest and in Kashmir, they fight to protect the interest of Kashmiri people. In both the regions, these traditional political parties saw the seeds of hate and divided the people on the name of the region.”
“They polarized society for their political interests. However, the Apni Party stands like a rock against them and we are committed to regional and religious unity in Jammu and Kashmir. Our fight is for equality, development and employment. We will not allow these divisive elements to create division among the people in the erstwhile State,” he asserted.
“These politicians who mislead the youth must be held accountable. Had there been accountability, most of the rulers in J&K would have been found accused in spreading gun culture instead of bringing prosperity and peace here,” he added.
“The politicians from the traditional political parties will do the politics of polarization. However, we have to think about our future generations. If you stand against these politicians, they will not be seen anywhere,” Bukhari asserted.
