BJP will end ‘step-motherly’ treatment given to Jammu: Amit Shah
Shah said the state would benefit if it elected the BJP to power as PM wished to get J&K on the path to speedy progress and development.
Shah, who recently launched the party’s ‘Mission 44-plus’, addressed three gatherings on Monday. “BJP is fighting for an India without Congress and J&K is also part of the country. You have to join the fight and make the state free from Abdullahs and Muftis (who control the ruling National Conference and main opposition People’s Democratic Party respectively),” he told a big gathering at Kathua, which borders Punjab.
“It is time to have a nationalist government in J&K,” said Shah at the gathering, where the two-time MP and former minister Lal Singh of the Congress joined the BJP along with his wife and many followers.
Shah applauded Singh for choosing the “right place” and making the event a “big day” for the BJP.
“Whoever from Abdullahs or Muftis comes to power, he prefers his family interest over welfare of the people. As Omar Abdullah and Mufti Sayeed keep on swapping places, condition of the people stays unchanged,” the BJP president said.
Shah said the state would benefit if it elected the BJP to power as PM Narendra Modi wished to get J&K on the path to speedy progress and development, and get justice for Jammu that has been “facing injustice” and “step-motherly treatment”.
According to local BJP leaders, Shah has told party workers to improve their functioning and focus on Kashmiri Pandits and voters from the defence services. The party has zeroed in on four assembly seats, a local leader said without divulging the names.
