Congress piggy-backing the Bar since it lacks popular support claims BJP

Congress has always sacrificed the interests of people of Jammu right from 1947 and let down/ betrayed the people due to the lust for power and policy of appeasing the Kashmiri power brokers alleged Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party. Starting from the unilateral ceasefire by Nehru, Art 370, Delhi Agreement, 35A, return of Poonch-Uri and Shakargarh bulges and Chhamb, reinstatement of Sheikh, rigged elections of 1987 and re-entry of Farooq, the list is endless.That is why the people of Jammu showed them the door in the last assembly elections and today it fears complete dissemination, in tune with the rest of the country. Unable to bear the shock and reconcile to their defeat, the Congress has now adopted a policy of destructive politics with a single point agenda of return to power through hook or crook. Their leaders have mastered the art of telling lies after lies to hide their failures and blame BJP, which is the true representative and voice of the people of Jammu, stated Brig Gupta. Unable to enforce the Bharat Bandh, a call for which was given by Rahul Gandhi, in Jammu, the Congress is now trying to fire the gun from the shoulder of Jammu Bar Association by giving a call for Jammu Bandh on 11 April. “I fail to understand that with which face Congress leaders are supporting the four-point charter of the Bar because the Congress is the root cause of resentment for all the four issues,” exclaimed Brig Gupta!
People of Jammu know those who are behind settling of Rohangiyas as well as the intent with which they were brought here but the same leadership now is shamelessly demanding their ouster. These turn-coats must know that people are demanding for legal action against them for their involvement in playing with region’s security, warned Brig Gupta. Similarly, till date none of their leaders has visited Rassana or publicly made their stand clear. The fact is that Congress is a divided house with two different stands on every issue with their main leadership in hand of Kashmiris who advocate Greater Autonomy, 370, 35A, talks with Pakistan and support Azadi yearning stone pelters.
As regards District status for Nowshera, the Congress is responsible for tearing apart the recommendations of Wazir Commission which recommended three districts for Jammu and one for Kashmir but Ghulam Nabi Azad gave four each. Why didn’t Congress party think of Nowshera than which has been a Tehsil since 1947? By now shedding the crocodile tears and posing to be their sympathisers Congress is befooling itself only, claimed Brig Gupta.As far as the tribal policy is concerned once again the Congress leadership has remained mum on the issue, an example of opportunistic politics.
Appealing to the Advocates, Brig Gupta said that they should not allow their genuine concern for people of Jammu to be hijacked by opportunistic Congress party, which has no popular support base and wants to piggy back on them for their survival politics. Since, three of the four issues highlighted by the advocates are sub-judice, it would be better if the lawyers used their professional skills and prayed judicial remedy rather than dabbling in politics, hoped Brig Gupta.
