Prof. Virender Gupta expressed his anguish and the distress on what happened in Srinagar Parliamentary Constituency

State BJP Spokesperson Prof. Virender Gupta expressed his anguish and the distress on what happened in Srinagar Parliamentary Constituency, yesterday at the time of voting. He condemned the act of violence and disruption that was engineered by the Pakistan sponsored separatists, anti-national and disruptive forces who are against democratic process to flourish in the Valley. Prof. Virender Gupta blamed Farooq Abdullah and his party for their contribution in the happenings those took place during the day of voting. He said that on one hand Farooq Abdullah instigate the youth, prompt them for stone pelting calling them as Kashmiri nationalists fighting for the Kashmir Nation and thus support the continuation of the violence, whereas on other hand he calls for political solution of the Kashmir problem. He added that it is unfortunate that the person who remained Chief Minister of the State and the Union Minister is indulging in destructive politics for the sake of political mileage. He criticized Farooq Abdullah on the fact that in his pre-election speeches, he provoked the people against the State and Centre government and inspire them to revolt and indulge in violence acts so that he can get through safely in the Parliamentary elections. It is irony that leaders of the main opposition party, Congress that governed the country and state for a long period stood behind Farooq Abdullah and campaigned in his favour. It is astonishing that the person who is responsible for the situation blames the government and Election Commission of India for their failure in creating conducive atmosphere for polling and for handling the situation.
The BJP Spokesperson questioned that who was responsible for the loss of lives and the injuries that people including the security persons got in the violence that inspired on the election day or during the period of upsurge of violence. Should not the separatist and the political leaders like Farooq Abdullah own the responsibility who are trying to rebuild their political career on the sufferings and agonies of the people.
Prof. Virender reminded Farooq Abdullah about the situation prevailing in 1996 and the percentage of votes polled when he regained power in the state. He also reminded him of the percentage of votes polled in 2008 elections too when NC again regained power of the state.
