Jammu: Claiming that Dr Farooq Abdullah is good at gimmicks, senior BJP leader and former Deputy Chief Minister Kavinder Gupta said that NC Patron and his ilk MPs’ protest outside the Parliament seeking restoration of Article 370 was nothing but another political drama.
In a statement issued here, the BJP stalwart leader said that the so-called Kashmir based parties are on same pedestal as far as Article 370 is concerned because their political shops have been shut as the BJP government in the Centre has exposed their conspiracy to befool people in the name of this Article of Constitution and ensured power turn by turn thus looting the resources of the erstwhile state with impunity to nurture selected few dynasties.
He said that Article 370 only deprived the people of their rights in the last over seventy years as laws enacted by the parliament were not implemented in J&K.
“Even the decrees passed by the SC for delivering justice to people were not enjoyed by the people in J&K due to this barrier and Election Commission of India was also stopped from doing a favour to people because Article 370 has raised a tall wall leading to sheer injustice to people”, he said and added that PM Narendra Modi has freed the people from the clutches of this contentious Article of the Constitution and going back to dark era is next to impossible.
He said that NC and PDP are showing to the world that they are one principally but the statement made by former CM and NC leader Omar Abdullah has exposed the wedge between two parties as he alleged that it was Mehbooba’s fault that she joined hands with BJP and formed government leading to nullification of Article 370.
He said that the aforesaid statement has revealed the rift between the two parties which are claiming to be working jointly for the cause of people. He said that what is the fun of bringing back Article 370 which stopped people from enjoying the rights which their counterparts across the country enjoyed seamlessly?
“Both NC and PDP leadership is sailing on same boat because their deceitful and deceptive factories of making people fools have been shut and people have shunned their company to lead a life full of dignity and good fortune, which is troubling them the most and that is the reason they are craving for the restoration of contentious Article 370,” Kavinder said adding that people in Jammu Division and Kashmir also rejoiced at the end of Article 370 and are witness to the colossal development taking place in every nook and corner of the UT.
He said that NC leaders have no takers in the UT which forced them to move to New Delhi to protest seeking Article 370 which will never ever happen.
