JAMMU: Congress today held a protest demonstration in Nowshera against the policies of BJP and burnt the effigy of Dy. Chief Minister Nirmal Singh for his utterances in favour of antinational elements.
In a statement issued here, a large number of senior Congress activists held protest demonstration, carrying banners and play cards in their hands amidst chanting of slogans against BJP and accusing BJP Ministers and leaders for their complete surrender for the sake of power and compromise with the issue of dealing with terrorism.
Speakers demanded that the BJP should clear its stand on the dangerous statements of Dy. Chief Minister Nirmal Singh regarding the Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani. Reportedly the leaders said that the killing of Burhan Wani was an accident.
They said the BJP who is equal partner in the coalition Govt. and also the ruling party at the Centre should explain to the people of Jammu who have voted BJP, with the hope that it will serve the interests of J&K, especially the Jammu, now feel that they have been cheated and lost their faith on BJP.
Meanwhile, Pradesh Youth Congress also today charged with Deputy Chief Minister with pursuing pro-separatists and anti-India just for the lust of power.
Dr Nirmal Singhs statement has demoralized security forces who have been fighting Pakistani sponsored proxy war in Jammu and Kashmir for the last two and half decades, they said.
Taking a dig at Dr Nirmal Singh for demoralizing security forces by terming Burhan Wanis killing as accident, the PYC chief said that election of Dr Nirmal Singh to the Assembly and his appointed as Deputy Chief Minister of the sensitive border State was rather the biggest accident and tragedy in the political history of Jammu and Kashmir.
