Make Interlocutors report public: BJP
‘Omar’s disclosure an act of impropriety’
GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Aug 16: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday described the chief minister Omar Abdullah’s disclosure that he had been assured by the Prime Minister of India and union home minister for implementation of Interlocutors’ recommendations in “letter and spirit” as “an act of impropriety not keeping with the spirit of democracy.”
It also reiterated its demand to make the Interlocutors report public before it was taken up for any further “follow-up action”.
“The chief minister’s unguarded assertion has pushed the Interlocutors’ into yet another controversy and raised new questions instead of resolving the earlier questions,” the BJP state chief spokesperson Jitendra Singh said in a statement here.
The BJP spokesperson asked, “First, why is the National Conference keen for implementation of Interlocutors’ report? Is it because the NC leadership has received some kind of clandestine assurance from union home minister that the Interlocutors’ report is largely based on the NC’s Autonomy draft?
He added, “If anything like this is being done, it would only confirm the doubts that the Interlocutors are biased in favour of a particular political lobby at the behest of the Union Home Ministry and that the Interlocutors have clearly exceeded their brief eliciting diverse political viewpoints in the state and placing them before the Government of India for a fair follow-up”.
Singh cautioned that the BJP would never allow the “reversal of nomenclature to Sadar-e-Riyasat and Prime Minister”, which was changed to the Governor and the Chief Minister respectively and ratified by Sheikh Abdullah himself when he took over as chief minister in 1975 and constituted D D Thakur Committee for the purpose.
“If the Congress-led UPA government resorts to any misguided adventurism to appease the separatists and separatist-friendly political parties in Jammu and Kashmir, the BJP will launch a stir against it,” Singh warned.
He also reminded that there was a Indian Parliament’s unanimous resolution declaring J&K as an integral part of India and thereafter there was no room to accept any proposal that tends to weaken the relationship of Jammu and Kashmir with the rest of India either “physically or psychologically”.
