BJP flogging dead horse of Article 370: Jora


Srinagar: Congress Legislature Party leader Rigzin Jora Tuesday accused the BJP of flogging the dead horse of Article 370 and its abrogation.

“Whenever the BJP finds the ground slipping underneath its feet, it resorts to the emotive issue of abrogation of Article 370. To do so in Jammu by its chief spokesman, is a sure sign of BJP findings itself weaker by the day. The past 75 days has seen the PDP- BJP coalition government stumbling from one controversy to another, with no end in sight, as if this government suffers from obsessive compulsive controversy disorder,” Jora alleged in a statement.

“Just when we thought the people are getting some respite from the daily spectacle of the coalition antics and theatrics, Mufti Sayeed threw the bombshell – the prestigious artificial lake on river Tawi is not feasible technically. Coming on the heels of the shifting of AIIMS to Srinagar, this raised the heckles of BJP ministers so much that they are all running helter skelter trying to damage control. It was in this background that national spokesman of the BJP reverted back to BJP core agenda of abrogation of Article 370,” he added.
