The Jammu and Kashmir unit of BJP today criticised the National Conference (NC) and Congress for advocating rehabilitation of Kashmiri militants, presently in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (POK) and Pakistan, and said their return to the state could have dangerous consequences for the country's security.
"State Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, who got this policy okayed from the state Cabinet recently, is now being endorsed by J&K Pradesh Congress Chief Saif-ud-Din Soz without realising its far-off effects on the security scenario in the country," BJP national executive member and former pradesh unit president Ashok Khajuria told reporters here.
"These youth, who went across the border before and after 1990, received arms training in camps in PoK and Pakistan by ISI, can prove disastrous for the people of the state and the country as they have been prepared to raise Jehad against India," Khajuria, who is also sitting MLA, said. Accusing the NC and Congress of perpetuating turmoil in the state for over 20 years, the BJP leader said these parties are inch by inch taking J&K out of the fold of Union of India.
Khajuria said the BJP will continue its struggle to defeat the forces who are overtly or covertly trying for disintegration of Jammu and Kashmir from the rest of the country. "Our party will continue protests under constitutional ways to make countrymen aware about the dangers with respect to the policies being adopted by Congress-led UPA at the Centre and NC-led coalition in J&K," he said.
Khajuria said BJP leaders and elected representatives will continue to boycott all the functions which are being chaired and attended by the Chief Minister and his colleagues in the council of ministers. He also said the people of the state should socially boycott the Chief Minister till he withdraws his controversial statement on the J&K's accession/merger with India.
