Soz's remarks about Advani in bad taste: Dr Jitendra
Srinagar, Aug 10: Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) on Friday described unfortunate, hurtful and in bad taste some of the personal derogatory remarks made by JKPCC President Prof Saif-ud-Din-Soz against veteran BJP leader L K Advani.
“If this downward trend continues one shivers to imagine to what low level the political discourse would fall in the times to come, particularly when someone as literate as Prof Soz also chooses to use such expressions,” the BJP National Executive Member and JK Chief Spokesperson Dr Jitendra Singh said in a statement.
Referring to the rich tradition of mutual respect established by the founding fathers of Indian Republic, Dr Jitendra Singh reminded Prof Soz that even in the worst of times when his party patriarch Jawaharlal Nehru disagreed or lost his temper with Dr Shyama Prasad Mookherjee, he would immediately apologize without making any personal insinuations against Mookherjee.
“On one occasion, Nehru had taken the unusual initiative of introducing young opposition leader Atal Bihari Vajpayee to the visiting Soviet leader Khrushev as a potential Prime Minister of future India,” he added.
Imploring upon leaders from all political parties to exercise discretion, Dr Singh said it is the responsibility of senior politicians like Prof Soz to set an example of respectful disagreement with their opponents so that young political activists across the party lines could also follow the same.
