‘BJP has failed to capture public opinion by use of money in JK’
Srinagar, May 8: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday termed action against the BJP by District Administration led by Deputy Commissioner Leh, ‘appreciable’, stating that such actions play a vital role in restoring peoples’ faith in the institutions of democracy and FairPlay.
In a statement issued to fastkashmir here, senior PDP leader and former minister Naeem Akhtar said that it is now established that the BJP has destroyed the institutions all across and is busy trying to do that every day sans any remorse. However, said Akhtar, the stiff resistance by the local media in Ladakh to such undemocratic measures of the BJP is worth to hail and it has made every law abiding and peace loving citizen of the state proud.
Akhtar said that it was the BJP that introduced money during the municipal, Panchayat and recently held parliament polls in Jammu and Kashmir. “But the BJP met resistance in the state where they wanted to capture public opinion by use of money. The people here in union have told the saffron bridge that they are not available for this,” Akhtar said.
