JAMMU: BJP’s Jammu and Kashmir unit publicity secretary Arun K Chibber announced his resignation from the basic membership of the party on Saturday over alleged neglect and humiliation.Addressing a press conference here, the 65-year-old Chibber said he “remained associated with the party for over 40 years, working with full dedication and devotion”.“I was linked with the BJP since its formation in April 1980 and played a key role as a grassroot-level worker. I never cared for my family and was influenced by the party’s only aim of serving the nation,” Chibber said.A post-graduate, Chibber said he “preferred the BJP over a government job” and fulfilled his responsibilities at different levels to the satisfaction of the party leadership.“Over the past few years, till we were not in power (in J&K), we used to feel powerful and were able to address the grievances of the public at our own level. However, when we came to power, we started losing contact with the masses,” he claimed.Chibber said the BJP under Prime Minister Narendra Modi is growing with new entrants joining the party, but the old workers who gave their “blood and sweat” for the party are being “neglected and humiliated”.“The Party is facing immense scarcity of democratic values and decisions these days, and is being hardly discussed the matters first under a proper and legitimate discourse procedure,” he said adding that a selected few have replaced the popular vote within the Party cadre which is a matter of great concern.“Our Constitution of India enshrines democratic values and that in my point of view should be the working ethos of any national or regional political party, which in case of BJP is totally absent now,” he added.He further said, “The policies and implementations of a plethora of central Government Schemes in the UT of J&K has been poorly carried out and people are in total dejection mood. I feel highly embarrassed. The promises they was made have not been kept and they have never come up to the expectations of the people, sometimes with the very genuine and a small demands.”“Therefore, in the interest of the people, my J&K and self-integrity, I hereby distance from the Party from November 27, 2021.” he asserted.
