Not merely two, but all BJP Ministers must go: Harsh

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Apr 14: Admonishing BJP for its cowardice and its greed of power, Harsh Dev Singh, Chairman JKNPP and former Minister ridiculed the pusillanimity of saffron party in forcing its two Ministers to quit who had made public promise to transfer the Rassana murder case from J&K Police to CBI in conformity with the people’s wishes.
Addressing a press conference, he said that by its servile lame duck posturing, the BJP had once again proved that it could make any compromise to remain glued to power.
Reminding the BJP of its tall assurance of CBI probe in the aftermath of an 8-year old girl case and statements made by its four official spokespersons in a joint press conference on 8th April questioning credibility of the Crime Branch team, Singh said that people were amazed to see the saffron leaders changing colours like the chameleon. “Mehbooba’s threat to part ways in case the BJP persisted with its CBI demand, worked so effectively that the saffron party lost no time in seeking resignations of its two Ministers,” he rued,  adding that ‘more loyal than the king’ DyCM invariably made a statement hailing the Crime Branch and expressing his satisfaction over the investigations and adding further that “those not satisfied with the probe could go wherever they like”. “In his desperation to please his Master, the henpecked deputy of Mehbooba did not realize that dis-satisfaction with the probe arose largely from district Kathua which had given him and his party a massive unprecedented mandate.
Flaying the BJP leaders for their gross betrayals and successive surrenders over Jammu related issues, Singh said that not merely two but all BJP Ministers must resign as it alone could pacify the highly agitated public of this region. He said that the BJP’s earlier surrenders including those over the issues of amnesty to stone pelters, job policy and ex-gratia to NoKs of slain stone pelters, amnesty to political prisons, shelving of Sainik Colonies project and separate KP Township schemes in Kashmir, re-naming of Hari Parbhat as ‘Kohi-maran’, issue of Art 370 and 35A, biased approach of State recruitment agencies had sparked massive outrage in Jammu during the last 2-3 years.
