BJP’s ‘betrayal’ a big political setback for Mehbooba Mufti

BJP’s ‘betrayal’ a big political setback for Mehbooba Mufti

The BJP's move raises the possibility of governor's rule in the volatile state, the eighth time since it was imposed in 1977.

He further said that the Central government had done all that could be for the development of the state.

The withdrawal of support by the BJP led to the resignation by chief minister Mehbooba Mufti.

The Hindu nationalist BJP had formed an alliance with regional Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP) in 2014. "Mufti has no face left, no political mileage, and she will have no stakes in Jammu and Kashmir whenever fresh elections take place".

"Today, after destroying the state, BJP can not just run away from its responsibilities by pulling out of the alliance with PDP", he also said, reported Firstpost. This has been a constant feature of Kashmir, too, this smearing of the distinction between cause and effect in the cycle of violence, in which state violence and separatist violence chase each other in a vicious spiral.

Terrorism, violence and radicalism have risen and the fundamental rights of citizens, including right to life and free speech, are in danger, the BJP leader said.

National Conference president Omar Abdullah called on Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra in the wake of BJP pulling out of its coalition government with the PDP in the state. But the BJP ministers faced a situation where the government as a whole has been lacklustre in dealing with the needs of the people of these regions, he added.

Mehbooba said PDP was also able to safeguard the special status of the State by defending Article 35-A and Article 370 in the apex court.

"A democratically elected government is much better any day than the Governor's rule which essentially means New Delhi's direct rule in the state where now they will have absolute control over the administration and the security apparatus".

"Keeping in mind the fact that J-K is an integral part of India, integrity and sovereignty of the region, we want the governor to take charge of the state", said Ram Madhav. "We don't face any political interference".

He said the ceasefire was announced by the Centre with the intention of bringing peace to the state and to give relief to the people of Kashmir during the holy month of Ramadan. We had expected a good response from the Hurriyat.

The assassination of prominent journalist and Rising Kashmir founder Shujaat Bukhari and his two Personal Security Officers (PSOs) in the heart of the Srinagar has raised many question marks on the police force and security agencies.

Madhav also said that over 600 terrorists have been neutralized in the last three years to stop radicalization.

He said there is anger among BJP ministers too that government does not consult them whenever Deputy Commissioners, SSPs and other top officials are transferred. But the chances of these parties coming together are slim because the PDP and NC have always been at loggerheads in the state.
