Any Discussion Challenging Accession is a Dream in the Air: Vibodh
In order to celebrate the accession day, today a massive programme was organised at Dangri in Rajouri. A large number of local residents from different walks of life attended the programme as a mark of respect to the Maharaja’s decision for accession. The programme was chaired by BJP senior leader and MLC Vibodh Gupta and many prominent citizens along with senior party leaders were also present on the occasion. Addressing the gathering Vibodh informed the gathering that the accession was legally full and final and it is a historical fact that at that time Maharaja Hari Singh signed the instrument of accession without any condition as he himself wanted J&K to be an integral part of India. This he said ensured a very strong bonding of J&K with the rest of country when this historic instrument of accession was signed on 26 October 1947. He made it clear with all the historical facts that no renegotiation can be done and any effort to discuss this is like building castles in the air. Gupta urged the participants of the event specially the prominent citizens and local youth to educate the common masses about the historic importance of this day and also said that every citizen of Jammu & Kashmir should feel proud that we are marching ahead in the path of development along with other fellow Indians. He further added that today under the able leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister Sh. Narinder Bhai Modi, development efforts in all three regions of the state are going on a war footing and people are having a sense of security and prosperity. Terming this day as most important historic day for J&K, Vibodh said that the day should be celebrated as a festival and each one of us must take pledge to fight all such forces which want to take this state away from India.
BJP district President Dinesh Sharma also addressed the gathering and congratulated everyone in Rajouri for coming out in such large number to celebrate this day. He said that October 26 is the day to renew the pledge that binds J&K with India. Former President of Rajouri Municipality Rajinder Gupta also participated in the function, in his address he termed the accession day as a great tool for the overall growth and prosperity of the state.
