AGORE – Lambasting BJP and PDP for playing complimentary and supplementary to each other in polarising the electoral battle with common objective of weakening secular forces, Provincial President Devender Singh Rana on Saturday said National Conference will foil all these attempts at the strength of people’s unflinching faith in Jammu and Kashmir’s glorious pluralistic values.
“We will dash to ground the reactionary tendencies of these two parties which they unleash to incite passions in one region with sinister design of generating reaction in another and vice versa”, Mr Rana said while addressing a public meeting at Agore in Nagrota assembly constituency here this evening.devender singh rana
The Provincial President said the two parties benefitted from this ugly and dubious game plan in 2008 as a result of which the people they exploited had to pay heavily by remaining almost unrepresented. ‘Neither PDP, nor BJP are interested in serving the people, seeking redressal to their grievances and pursuing the agenda of development for their welfare, as their only priority remained to indulge in intrigue so as to lay their hands on power by hook and crook”, he said.rana
Mr Rana ruled out any situation emerging for PDP and BJP to form the government and said the opportunity the former got by default in 2002 proved to be disastrous for the State. He referred to the role played by PDP’s top leadership after stepping down in favour of Ghulam Nabi Azad and said such was the level of dejection that they played the role of main opposition even though being part of the government. He blamed Muftis for sabotaging Azad government by engineering the Amarnath land row agitation in league with BJP. He cautioned the people against similar machinations being worked out with blue print being devised in New Delhi with the active assistance of close aide of Narendra Modi.
Mr Rana said the echo of Modi rants are being heard in PDP gatherings across the Kashmir Valley and in parts of the Jammu region with its top leadership openly endorsing the saffron agenda, which, he described as detrimental to the unity and communal amity.  “As part of this agenda, PDP has fielded proxies to help BJP candidates”, he said while declaring this mischievous strategy is bound to fail on the face of stiff public resistance.
The Provincial President exuded confidence about massive victory of the alliance candidates, Mr Madan Lal Sharma from Jammu-Poonch and Mr Ghulam Nabi Azad in Udhampur-Kathua-Doda constituencies. “It is not question of their winning only but the margin with which they win”, he said to the enthusiastic crowd, saying the current elections are witnessing unique blend of ‘Hal aur Hath, Saath Saath’.
Among those present on the occasion included Sham Lal Block President Bhalwal, Sarpanch Ravinder Singh Peter, Sarpanch Balbir Singh, Sarpanch Sudershan Singh, Sarpanch Anwar Khan, Sarpanch Mumtaz, Sarpanch, Mathwar Ashok Kumar, ex-Sarpanch Sain Khan, Kuldeep Singh Jamwal, Kabla Singh, Block President Dansal Rameshwar Dutt, besides panches and others prominent persons.
