Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers party on Tuesday flayed Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayees' stand claiming to be "Narendra Modi's advocate" during his campaign for the December 12 assembly elections.

"The Prime Minister is advocating for Modi, who is a tyrant. The people of Gujarat need an advocate for their cause rather than Modi," party chairman Professor Bhim Singh told reporters here.

Singh, whose party is part of the coalition government, led by PDP-Congress in Jammu and Kashmir, said they were prepared to advocate for the people of Gujarat, who have suffered wrath of "nature and man" recently.

Stating that the elections will have a direct impact in J&K, he called on the people to defeat BJP and its allies with the same conviction that people of the valley had when the BJP was ousted.

Singh alleged that the nation was "put up for sale" under the BJP rule and critised the disinvestment policy of the NDA government.

He said no government in J&K has yet brought a solution to terrorism in the valley and "assured that the coalition government of J&K would prove their hard stand and nip terrorism from the bud in six months from now."

Singh said he was not urging people of Gujarat to "vote for Congress but to beat BJP at any cost."
