Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh national convener Indresh Kumar said chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed should look at New Delhi and not Islamabad. He said the CM should watch the interests of India.
"Mufti should look at New Delhi and not Islamabad," he said at function of ex-servicemen in Jammu on Saturday.
The RSS leader and former J-K Sangh head also asked the Mufti to act tough against anti-India forces in the state.
"We approved alliance of the BJP-PDP considering Mufti Sayeed will give the gift of development to the state. But, he talked about injustice to Afzal Guru, convicted and hanged in the Parliament attack case and released separatist Masarat Alam. We don't know why he did it and what was his compulsion," said Indresh.
The Mufti Sayeed government had first released Masarat Alam, who in a rally attended by Syed Ali Shah Geelani waived Pakistani flags. It strained the relations between the coalition partners. Masarat was re-arrested and charged under the Public Safety Act (PSA).
Indresh, considered one of the influential Sangh leaders on J-K affairs, made this comment after the CM had credited the separatists and Pakistan for peaceful elections in the state. PDP president Mehbooba Mufti in an interview had also supported the view point of the CM.
"If the BJP has departed from its core ideology -- abrogation of Article 370 -- to form the government, the other partner (PDP) should also leave its agenda -- self-rule and talk with separatists for the better governance," said Indresh.
He said those supporting and raising voices in support of Pakistan should be termed 'traitors' and sent to Pakistan.
Indresh said the country should take pledge to fight against terrorists and secessionists and if J-K takes a lead on this, the problem of the Kashmir will vanish.
