NC, PDP, Cong misleading people of J&K: BJP

Jammu: Slamming political parties raising issue of ‘non-local’ voters, the Jammu and Kashmir BJP president Ravinder Raina on Monday said that the National Conference, PDP and Congress along with other parties are trying to mislead the people.
“The people of West Pakistani Refugee, Gorkha Samaj, Dalit community were denied their fundamental right to vote and their human rights were violated in Jammu and Kashmir for past 70 years,” said Raina addressing a press conference here flanked by MP Jugal Kishore Sharma, former Dy CMs, Dr Nirmal Singh, Kavinder Gupta, former Minister Sat Sharma and others.
Raina said, “the Congress party will have to answer to the people of the country, the law which Pandit Nehru brought in 1950, why is the Congress party opposing that law?”
The BJP in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday slammed the NC, PDP and others for raking up the issue of “inclusion of non-local voters” in the revised electoral rolls in the Union Territory and alleged they were spreading propaganda to disturb the peace.
Raina said that Representation of Peoples Act 1950 was applicable all over India since 1950 and now it has become applicable to J&K as well after the abrogation of controversial articles 370 and 35 (a).
Now with the application of this Act everybody above the age of 18 who is residing in Jammu and Kashmir can participate in the election process, which is a Constitutional process, he said adding, “this is a deliberate malicious attempt of propaganda against the judicial process unleashed by NC, PDP, Congress along with certain other parties.”
Raina said, “To vote is the right of every citizen of India who is above the age of 18 years. Now after the delimitation, youth above the age of 18 years are being added as new voters, but NC, PDP, Congress are misleading people”.
He asked that Congress party has to answer that in 1950 Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru and Congress government brought that law, why congress is doing propaganda against it now.
Continuing his tirade against the NC, Congress and PDP, he alleged, ”They have come together under a conspiracy to mislead the public and disturb the peace.
”They have always done their politics over the dead bodies. They are anti-people and least bothered about the prosperity and development of J&K which is taking place at a fast pace under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He said, “BJP will restore the golden era of Jammu and Kashmir and safeguard the fundamental and human rights of each citizen to make it a heaven on earth once again”.
