After getting taken for a ride for almost an year, the RSS has suddenly started to remember all it’s nationalistic ideals, and stands in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. This has happened particularly after PDP led by Mehbooba Mufti proved to be a tough nut to crack, and unlike the BJP which jumped into the coalition formation as if there is no tomorrow. The saffron party has been caught on the wrong foot both politically, and strategically by the PDP which has shown to the people of the state that it is ready to sacrifice power for the sake of people, more funds for Kashmir, and also taken into account the antipathy of people towards the Hindu BJP.
Though Kumar said: “One should not undermine the sacrifices of the BJP in J&K. Since 1947, the BJP and other affiliated organizations have been working for the integration and development of the state so people of Jammu and Kashmir are very much aware of the policies and programmes of the party”.
