Srinagar, July 12: Bhartiya Janata Party National General Secretary Ram Madhav Sunday said abrogation of Article 370 was to end “terrorism and anti-national” activities in Jammu and Kashmir.
According to news agency Kashmir Indepth News Service (KINS), Madhav said, “Some people were promoting anti-national activities and showing wrong path to children. Article 370 was abrogated to end terrorism and anti-national activities in Jammu and Kashmir.”
This he stated at a party workers function here organized in remembrance of slain BJP leader Waseem Bari, who was killed recently.
“These terrorists are targeting party workers and innocent civilians. Solution is to teach a lesson to those (Pakistan) who make them terrorists and export here. Every person is ready to give sacrifice for this country,” he said.
“We won’t spare them who killed Waseem Bari and promote terrorism,” he added.
Earlier, he visited slain BJP leader from north Kashmir’s Bandipora district Waseem Bari’s home and offered condolences with the bereaved family.
“We have come here to offer condolences with the bereaved family and provided them some help. All BJP leaders, workers stand with the party workers of Kashmir. Those who did this act (killed Bari and his father and brother) will be tracked soon and neutralized,” Madhav told reporters.
“We all demand party workers should be given proper security,” he added.
He was accompanied by Union Minister Jitendra Singh and J&K BJP President Ravindar Raina and few other leaders.
Wasim Bari, his father and brother were killed on Wednesday evening outside their home when they were at their shop. Following the incident, 10 of their PSOs were also suspended. (KINS)
