Addressing a meeting of prominent leaders and party activists at Srinagar on the last leg of his two day visit of Kashmir, Member of Parliament & BJP J&K Prabhari Avinash Rai Khanna asked them to devote more time to reach every nook and corner of the valley to mobilize public opinion in favour of the party keeping in mind that BJP has set mission 44+ and we have to form government in J&K on our own.
“BJP’s resolve is very clear that we are committed to end dynastic rule, provide corruption free, fear free and development oriented government in the state,” Khanna said and added that people are fed up by the mis-governance of successive governments headed by NC, Congress and PDP and are looking towards BJP with high hopes. He said that the people rejected Congress and its allies in the Lok Sabha elections and now the same will be repeated in states where assembly elections are due in next 3-4 months, including Jammu and Kashmir.
Avinash Rai Khanna said that the state of Jammu & Kashmir achieved the distinction of being second most corrupt state with more than six lakh unemployed educated youth under the mis-governance of NC-Congress coalition government. Thousands of unemployed educated youth are forced to leave the state for jobs in absence of any youth policy of this government. There is no development on ground and whatever is claimed is on papers. Discrimination with Jammu and Ladakh regions still continue despite repeated assurances by the government.
Khanna said that fearing their defeat in the forthcoming assembly election, the ministers and leaders of NC, Congress and PDP are airing voices against the nation by inclining towards the line of Hurriyat and other separatist organizations. He said that the people cannot be misled and befooled anymore as they are now well aware of the misrule of the coalition and made up their mind to teach them a lesson.
Avinash Rai Khanna said that on one hand there is anger and resentment against the NC, Congress and PDP, on the other the Narendra Modi wave has swept their minds. Narendra Modi’s name is echoing across the state. It has been witnessed for the first time in Jammu & Kashmir that the people are yearning for change to get the state rid of corruption, mis-governance and dynastic rule. To achieve this the people have seen in BJP the only medium to get what they are dreaming for. He said that the party’s mission is clear, people’s minds are also clear, the ground is very conducive and we will succeed in forming first ever government of BJP in Jammu & Kashmir, which will be pro-people, free of corruption, free of fear with focus on development.
