BJP State Spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta said that Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has set at rest all the speculations about the certainty of the present PDP-BJP alliance government. While addressing the people after laying the foundation of Govt. Degree College at Bhalwal, she took the critics to task in her speech declaring that she wouldn’t be deterred or cowed down by the controversies being stirred deliberately by vested interests against PDP-BJP coalition government and said that her government would complete remaining full term and would carry forward the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Late Mufti Mohd. Sayeed. Taking dig at Omar Abdullah for his repeated statements that PDP-BJP government has failed, she said that no one can come up with solution of Kashmir problem over night and the collective efforts are needed to resolve the complex issue of Kashmir.
Prof. Virender was critical of Farooq Abdullah’s statement asking for holding dialogue between India and Pakistan to resolve Kashmir issue and for not repeating mistakes of using force to deal with the current unrest in the valley and said that he considers Farooq Abdullah as a matured politicians and did not expect such type of statement in the situation that is prevailing presently in the valley and tense relations existing between India and Pakistan because of latter’s direct involvement in supporting terrorism in the valley. He said that Kashmir is an internal problem of India and it has to resolve this issue itself. He further added that situation that at present exist in the valley, no one can avoid the use of force to bring normalcy; Farooq who remained Chief Minister of the state must be knowing it better and Pakistan should have no concern with it. The real problem is Pakistan imported terrorism that has destroyed the peace of the people of valley.
The Spokesperson said that present trouble in the valley is inspired by the ideology of Wahabi and Salafi movements those want to convert Kashmir valley into an Islamic State, independent of India. Those on the streets do not demand Great Autonomy or Plebiscite, their only slogan is Azad Islamic state. He told Abdullah that the present situation is the creation of Congress and NC and added that it was during their rule, both at the Centre and in the State that rupees 17000 crore that came into the valley for the spread of Wahabi and Salafi ideology provoking the youth to launch Jehad and 5 thousand new masques were constructed in rural Kashmir for the purpose, in the last about 20 years. Prof. Virender called upon the government of India and all the political parties and people in general to put united efforts to counter this onslaught on Indian democracy.
