J&K BJP is facing credibility crisis, Revocation of SRO-202 may give some relief
(POONCH TODAY NEWS)
JAMMU: On many issues, J&K BJP has been facing huge resentment from the people of Jammu region. Whether the issue of toll plaza, recruitment, delimitation on 2011 censes and few others, the saffron party is facing credibility crisis, although revocation of SRO-202 may give some relief to BJP, but it’s a fact that Jammu and Kashmir Unit of BJP mostly backstabbed the people of Jammu region during the rule of BJP-PDP coalition government. Majority of BJP leaders were seen confined to wrong practices and failed to stand strongly when it comes to the issues of Jammu region. Many BJP ministers failed to address the issues of Jammu’s importance. Highly placed sources in BJP camp told “POONCH TODAY” that few BJP leaders want to capture everything and are not allowing the entry of visionary persons in party’s fold. One of the BJP leader, sources pointed out, said, “We allowed entry of an educated Dr Jitender Singh and he proved very heavy on all of us, so we will not allow entry of more educated persons in the party.” Right now, the party is being run by three to four leaders who are not giving an opportunity to others to grab the space, fearing losing of power from their hands. In other districts of Jammu region also, many educated youngsters want to join the party, but traditional BJP leaders, are not allowing their entry. From the attitude of few leaders of BJP, it has become clear that J&K BJP is being ruled by few people who have done nothing for the Jammu region while in power. During the rule of coalition government headed by former CM Mehbooba Mufti, major departments remained with PDP and BJP got only few less powerful departments. Throughout the tenure of previous government, Mehbooba imposed her will on BJP walas. There is an impression going on in the Jammu region that BJP leadership of the state is not blessed with a vision and party has no ideology when it comes to the interest of Jammu region. In spite of many negatives points of J&K BJP, people in large from Jammu region love PM Modi and feel that PM Modi has provided good governance for the country including abrogation of Article 370 and 35-A and going by the public sentiment, only PM Modi’s aura can save J&K BJP, else the writing is on the wall.
