Srinagar, Apr 30: Stating that “nation first” was never BJP’s policy, Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress (JKPCC) Vice President and MLC G N Monga Sunday said the Saffron Party is only concerned about its vote bank and own constituency.
While reacting to BJP national President Amit Shah’s assertions that for his party the “nation comes first and the government second”, Monga in a statement to KNS said, “The reality is that for BJP it is not nation first but BJP first. BJP is only and only concerned about its own constituency and vote bank. They are trying to take political mileage by keeping the situation in Kashmir on boil.”
On BJP stand that it will not hold any dialogue on Kashmir, the Congress leader said, “Such an approach will only increase further anger and alienation. It could also take the situation to the point of no return besides hampering the activities of mainstream parties.”
“The BJP’s policy is a worrying factor for all right thinking people of the country as there is no alternative to dialogue. The prevailing situation in Kashmir is extremely dangerous as from students to traders everybody is on roads. You can’t turn blind eye towards such a grave situation in Kashmir. Government of India’s stand to shy away from dialogue process could have dangerous ramifications,” he warned. (KNS)
