National Conference provincial president (Jammu region) Devender Singh Rana on Sunday said denying permission to Kashmiri Pandits to undertake the Kausar Naag Yatra had created chaos in the state. "Opposition is the essence of democracy but once the red lines are crossed, it results in chaos and mistrust in the society," he said.
At a function in Aihem at Nagrota here, Rana said politicising religion in the country would affect the development of the state. He said the NC only focused on fostering development and sustaining peace in Jammu and Kashmir and would never deviate from this ideology.
Rana also said the Nagrota constituency would be developed further and the government would undertake efforts to meet the aspirations of the people in the area. BJP leader Rajinder Kali, who had recently joined the NC, said he had switched loyalties as the NC had maintained a track record of development in the state.
