Kashmir is not the property of any individual or any political party and no one should live in illusion that they can use and exploit Kashmir based sentiment for their political interest. BJP has made out all possible efforts to prove this fact that BJP is not stranger to the public of Kashmir. There was a time when first president Balraj Madhok of Jana Sangh was not allowed to deliver speech at Lal Chowk. There was also a time during peak militancy Murli Manohar Joshi took out march to hoist national flag at Lal Chowk and few people reached there. In last three years myself and BJP workers in Kashmir tried their best to approach common masses for redressal of their grievances during elections of Parliament, assembly and thereafter and they succeeded said BJP senior leader & MLC Ramesh Arora (Adv.).
Ramesh Arora said about 10 lakh people of different villages including highly militancy affected areas preferred to join BJP rallies. Although vote bank conversion was only upto 50,000 approximately because BJP was lacking local leadership of Muslims upto the mark.
Arora further said this is first time, we are trying to overcome this problem of leadership and organization. We have constituted first time in the history all district units. People of political thought and ideology are joining BJP and we are also committed to change the existing scenario. No other local or national party have such deep rooted network which is created by BJP this time.
MLC said Kashmir sentiments will get due respect and status, we are aware about the problems of youth, half widows, exploitations by political parties and misuse of power by police and local administration. BJP is committed to bring peace, harmony and eradicate corruption prevailing in the society. We are also aware that scholarship scheme is not implemented properly and we are making serious efforts and we are in contact with Centre government. We are committed for all around development because Kashmir is part of our mother land i.e. India. People have started realizing that separation or going to Pakistan is not possible. They can grow with peace and harmony with all fundamental rights enshrined under the constitution of India and that of the state. To sum up Kashmir is not meant for political gain or loss but it is our national commitment to see that youth should march ahead in the changing world scenario.
