Opposition playing with people’s sentiments on Rassana: Gupta

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Apr 22: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has blamed the opposition both in Jammu as well as in Kashmir region of playing with people’s sentiments, provoking them and playing politics without showing any sincerity in addressing their issues.
Referring to the verbal assault launched by the leaders of Congress and NPP in support of CBI enquiry in the Rassana rape and murder case, Anil Gupta, State BJP spokesperson accused these leaders of playing a double game.
“Incidentally, most of these leaders have a legal background and are well versed with law, yet they are misleading the people because they are not sincere in helping them but want to exploit them, blamed Brig Gupta. Had these leaders been serious, they should have appealed the High Court for a CBI enquiry well before the charge sheet was presented in the appropriate court by the Crime Branch, if they were sincere”, he added.
Gupta said yet these leaders continue to play with the sentiments of the people by holding protests and rallies while in reality none of them is interested in following the laid down legal procedure because they are more interested in publicity rather than action.
The BJP spokesperson said similar is the situation in Kashmir where self-seeking politicians and separatists are misguiding the youth and encouraging them to launch agitation and protests at the cost of their studies without any justified reason.
Taking to task those demanding the trial of the case outside J&K, Gupta advised them to have a look at the law of the land first. The law states “Court is where the code is applied.” Both RPC and J&K CrPC are applicable in J&K only and hence the case has to be tried within the State only, he added.
