KATHUA, Feb 26: Union Minister, Dr Jitendra Singh while holding Congress and its allies responsible for the present situation in Kashmir alleged that the then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, under the influence of Sheikh Abdullah, gave away PoJK (Pak occupied Jammu & Kashmir) on a platter to Pakistan and pledged that, under the Modi Government, the mistakes committed by the past governments will be redeemed.

Addressing a BJP party meeting at Dayalachak near here today, Dr Jitendra Singh referred to the events following the Pulwama attack and accused Kashmir-centric mainstream parties and their leaders of being apologetic about terror outfits like Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) instead of out-rightly condemning it by name. He said, it is appalling to note that at a time when the whole nation complimented the Indian Air Force for its feat, some of the Kashmir-centric leaders had crossed all limits of sensibility and sanity by speaking in a contrary tone.
He said it is unfortunate that these Kashmiri leaders raise fingers against BJP and do not lose even a single moment in opposing it while they do not speak a word against perpetrators of terror and consider Hurriyat as a holy cow.
Refuting the allegations of Kashmiri leaders that students from Valley were targeted outside Kashmir, Dr Jitendra Singh said there is no such report any where. They are spreading rumors to take advantage in elections. He asked them to refer any such incident to him and he will order action within minutes.
He, while lambasting Kashmiri leaders said that they forced over four and half lakh Kashmiri Pandits to leave Valley within night in 1990 and did not regret the same later. So they are now spreading rumors that the Kashmiri youth were targeted, which is totally wrong.
Dr Jitendra Singh said, India is safe under Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and those who are uncomfortable with this fact are nothing but enemies of India and disloyal to their own people.
“India under Prime Minister Modi will never let down its security forces”, said Dr Jitendra Singh and recalled when the Indian Army was just on the verge of capturing areas of Muzaffarabad and Kotli, etc from Pak occupation, the then Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru had let down the security forces by announcing a ceasefire without even taking his senior-most cabinet colleague and then Home Minister, Sardar Patel into confidence.
He said same blunders were made in 1965 and 1971 wars. In 1965 India had reached Lahore but later returned the territory. In 1971 India had captured Chamb and also captured 93,000 Pak army but later released them on negotiating table.
He said NC,PDD and Congress are making philosophical statements on violence and terrorist killings saying violence any where is condemnable which we have read in primary class books also.
Dr Jitendra Singh, while taking serious exception to the statements of some Kashmiri leaders who said that if action was taken against terrorists’ situation will deteriorate and there will be fire from all sides asked what they want to convey?. “Should no action be taken against terrorists and should terrorism be allowed to continue”, he questioned?
He accused these Kashmiri leaders of supporting terror and asked the people to be cautious against them. He said now Kashmiri youth have realized their tricks and new groups are coming forward to contest elections.
On the occasion, a get-together of the beneficiaries of the Modi Government’s welfare schemes was also held. Several beneficiaries narrated their experiences to the gathering and also expressed their gratitude to Prime Minister Modi for rolling out the first-ever incredible schemes like Ujjwala, Ayushman Bharat and PM Kisan Yojana. The Minister also distributed documents to some of the new beneficiaries of these schemes.
BJP district president, Prem Nath Dogra, senior leader Thakur Randhir Singh, veteran leader Yashpal Verma, State secretary aghunandan Singh Babloo and Janak Bharti also spoke on the occasion.
