Terms it a new charter of bondage for Jammu
Jammu: The Agenda of Alliance of the ruling coalition in Jammu & Kashmir, that was made public on March 1, the day when the new State Government was formed, is now under scanner.
Bharatiya Janata Party think tank and advisor to party president in Jammu and Kashmir has asked BJP leadership to declare the Agenda of Alliance of State Government as null and void and scrap it without any delay. The BJP leader has termed the Agenda of Alliance as pro-Kashmir and anti-Jammu.
In an article to a national Daily, the BJP leader Hari Om has claimed that the governance blueprint of the ruling PDP-BJP Government in J&K is a dangerous document and the BJP should re-visit the agenda and take corrective measures.
Hari Om claims that there are thousands of critics and only one admirer of the Agenda of Alliance. He said that people of Jammu have started feeling the negative impact of the agenda.
There is much in the Agenda which is undesirable. It helps Pakistan and the Hurriyat leaders to promote their secessionist and sectarian agenda. It also helps anti-Jammu forces in Kashmir consolidate their hegemony over Jammu, and destroy the regions unity and integrity by pitting followers of one religion against others. The Agenda also negates all that the nation did till February this year in Jammu & Kashmir to better integrate it into India.
The BJP leader according to CNS has said that the Agenda of Alliance not only maintains the existing political-constitutional status of Jammu & Kashmir, but also effectively says that the State is disputed territory and that its political future is yet to be decided. It recommends a process that seeks to involve Hurriyat leaders and also considers Pakistan as a stakeholder in Jammu & Kashmir.
Hari Om said that the Agenda of Alliance is a new charter of bondage for Jammu and another rivet in the chain of Jammu slavery. The reason is that there is absolutely nothing in the Agenda for the discriminated people of the Jammu region. Hopefully, the BJP will re-visit the agenda of alliance and take corrective measures to allay the fears of the people of Jammu and all the friends and well-wishers of India, the BJP think tank said.
