Addressing the gathering at the venue of dharna at Jantar Mantar, Harsh Dev Singh lambasted the unholy and unethical alliance of BJP and PDP in J&K which had consummated with the sole objective of sharing the loaves of power. He said that the two parties which were diabetrically opposed to each other on all issues had entered into an opportunistic and adulterous relationship under a highly mischievous power sharing agreement. Accusing the BJP of taking a complete ‘U’ turn on its core philosophy and making a seismic shift from its arrowed fundamentals. Mr. Singh said that the saffron party had committed the herculean blunder which would prove to be its waterloo at the hustings. Rebuking the BJP for its cowardly submission to the whims of its coalition partner, Mr. Singh said that the AIIMS shall not be allowed to be shifted from Jammu. He said that the BJP led government at the Centre could sanction one more AIIMS for Kashmir but the already approved AIIMS was required to be established in Jammu.
jant-3   Mr. Harsh Dev Singh while speaking on the occasion reiterated the resolve of the JKNPP to continue its crusade for ending all forms of discrimination against Jammu region and for ensuring equitable share to it in all fields. Taking a potshot at the saffron party, Mr. Harsh Dev Singh said that the BJP had compromised on all its solemn pledges and professed promises made at the time of Assembly elections merely to become a junior partner in the PDP-led government. He said that BJP which had seduced and mesmerized the gullible votes in the name of empowerment of Jammu exhibited utter lack of spine and surrendered to the dictates of PDP on all issues. He said that where as the PDP had embarked upon implementation of its agenda from day one; the BJP was still in a state a quandry. Lambasting the BJP for submitting to the whims of its coalition partner on the issue of AIIMS, Mr. Singh said the saffron party had indulged in the most treacherous bargain only for the bust of power. He said that announcement for establishment of AIIMS at Jammu was made by two Union Ministers on 28th February, 2015 at New Delhi and therefore BJP’s offering it to PDP on a platter merely for crumbs of power was the biggest betrayal with the people of Jammu region. Warning the BJP to desist from its lame duck posturing, Mr. Singh said that any further betrayal with Jammu would cost the saffron party its’ postal address in the days to come.
Mr. Balwant Singh Mankotia, State President vowed to continue the protests against the shameless surrender of the BJP on the issue of AIIMS. He said that Jammu region has very fragile tertiary health care system and divesting this region of AIIMS would be greatest injustice. He said that Kashmir already has one SKIMS which offers specialized treatment facilities with Chief Minister already having announced Rs.150 crores additionality for its upgradation. But Jammu region continued to be ignored and deprived in theBJP partnered government and despite the tall claims and loud pronouncements being made by the saffron party merely to hoodwink the people of Jammu region, he added.
Mr. Balwant Singh Mankotia further ridiculed the cowardly surrender of BJP on Dogra Certificate, grant of State Subject rights to West Pakistan Refugees and conferment of voting rights upon them.
Mr. Mankotia while demanding AIIMS for Jammu further called for holding early delimitation of Assembly constituencies so as to ensure equitable share to all regions of the state on political as well as economic basis. He further demanded relief for victims of natural calamities besides adequate compensation to Jammu Migrants gullible. Mr. Rajiv Jolly Khosla assured full support of Delhi Unit of Panthers Party in resolving the issues of J&K and in ensuring justice to Jammu region including its socio-political empowerment.

BJP must prove its credibility before bargaining for power in J&K

Shri Bansi Lal Sharma, Advocate and Spokesman of JKNPP has questioned the bona fides of the State BJP leadership in seeking power with PDP in the State on the claim that it has 25 MLAs out of 37 in Jammu Pradesh.

Mr. Sharma asked BJP to prove its credibility and the work done by theBJP in the past six years having 11 MLAs in the Assembly. He asked BJPleadership to make it transparence on the question of expelling 7 out of 11 from the party and then readmitting them on the eve of Assembly poll. Does it mean that seven tainted MLAs when shared the loot with the leadership their expulsion was withdrawn yet they were not fielded in the Assembly elections. That remains unanswered.

Mr. Sharma wanted to know from the BJP leadership that Shri Vajpayee as a Prime Minister inducted Omar Abdullah as a Minister in the Central government who enjoyed power for two years.

The NC and BJP remained thick friends for over a decade and neither of the party found fault with each other. He asked how suddenly BJP has decided to change its horse from NC to PDP? Mr. Sharma also asked the BJP to let the people know if the BJPleadership is going to divorce talks (dialogue) with Mufti sahib because Mufti had a secret parley with Hurriyat Spokesman namely, Prof.Abdul Ghani Bhat only yesterday. Mr. Modi had shut his talks with Pakistan even refused to shake hand with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharief when they attended the same conference in Kathmandu, Nepal. Prime Minister Modi reached this stage of total boycott with Pakistan on the ground that Pakistan High Commissioner (Ambassador) in Delhi happened to meet same Hurriyat leaders in New Delhi who met Mr. Mufti yesterday.

Mr. Sharma questioned the double standards on the part of Prime Minister Modi and invited him to hold a debate on the double standards and the failing policy on the part of Prime Minister Modi vis-à-vis Jammu and Kashmir on an open platform with Panthers Party Supremo Prof.Bhim Singh. Shall he do so? Shall he continue dialogue with PDP? Shall he choose some other horses to ride power in J&K?
