JKNPP protests outside BJP office New Delhi for its double standards, arrested

BJP bashing Afzal Guru supporters in Delhi, hobnobbing with them in Kashmir: Harsh

20160315_111317 Strongly condemning what it described as the double standards of BJP, the JKNPP held a massive demonstration in front of the BJP Office in New Delhi today. The protesters led by Mr. Harsh Dev Singh, Chairman JKNPP, Mr. Balwant Singh Mankotia, State President JKNPP and Mr. Yashpal Kundal, State President, Young Panthers raised slogans of Bharat Mata Ki Jai, BJP Hai Hai, Dogali Rajneeti Nahin Chalegi… Nahin Chalegi.A strong contingent of police comprising more than 100 police personnel pounced upon JKNPP leaders, arrested them and detained them in Parliament Street Police Station.

Mr. Harsh Dev Singh while taking a dig on the BJP expressed his skepticism over the criminal silence of the Saffron party of J&K state over the sedition row. He said that in a dangerous time where the whole country was burning with outrage, the J&K unit of BJP meekly surrendered before the commands of PDP for the lust of power. Rebuking the incongruous and dichotomous stand of the BJP at the Centre and in the State, he said that BJP was showing chauvinistic posturing over the seditious row by harping on the detention of JNUSU leader Kanahiya Lal in the Union capital but on the other hand it had turned servile and speechless in the State. He reminisced that following the formation of the PDP-BJP coalition government, the Saffron Party remained tight lipped over the release of a separatist leader Masrat Alam by the incumbent Chief Minister who was detained for inciting sedition and spewing venom against the country in Kashmir. He said that during the 10 months of unholy regime there were several occasions when ISIS and Pakistan flags were waved in Kashmir amid anti India and pro Pak slogans but the State BJP cowardly surrendered to the whims of Kashmiri leaders. He asked the BJP that why those anti national elements were not booked under sedition and where was its nationalistic character when they were allowed to go scot free. He dared the State BJP to agitate on the issue emanated from the death anniversary of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru or else face the wrath of the Nationalist Dogras.

20160315_111608Flabbergasted by the dual stand of the BJP over the JNU row, Mr. Harsh Dev Singh maintained that the Saffron brigade had become power corrupt and put its kernel philosophy at stake by remaining dumb over the issue only to explore another opportunity to ally with the PDP which always supported the Separatists and favoured dialogue with them. He wondered how could BJP cobble up with the PDP clan and coronate Mehbooba Mufti as the Chief Minister who glorified Afzal Guru as a Kashmiri hero and remained a staunch supporter and sympathizer of other separatists and anti-national elements. He pointed out that the PDP had put the unwarranted conditions before the BJP for considering a re-alliance which included talks with the separatists and, in such a scenario further concession by the BJP would expose its perfidious character at large. He added that it would embolden the separatists and other anti national elements who incite sedition and attempt to wage a war against the country.

Mr. Balwant Singh Mankotia and Mr. Yashpal Kundal said that the incidents like JNU should be deplored and denounced by all the sects of the society and maintained that all the National political parties instead of playing politics over the issue must unite irrespective of their ideologies and take a serious cognizance of anti India propaganda whether unleashed in New Delhi or Kashmir because the Nation is supreme. They said that the perpetrators of the obnoxious event should be stringently dealt under sedition so that a strong message was sent to the divisive forces who were hell bent to vitiate peace in Jammu and Kashmir and destabilize the Nation.

Prominent among those who were present and spoke on the occasion and were arrested included Gagan Pratap, S. Paramjit Marshal, Purshottam Parihar, Balbir Singh Happy, Mohan Lal, Sohan Lal, Amar Deep, Arun Dev Singh, Varun Jamwal, Devinder, Nitin, Raman Singh, Vipul Rana, Sandip Kumar, Sushil Kumar, Vivek Soni, Shivanshu, Kaku Ram, Dinesh Dutt, Khem Raj, Hukam Chand, Sheru Ram, Subhash Chander, Raju, Jagdish besides others.
