BJP sowing seeds of discord: Rana
Jammu, Aug 17: Chief Minister’s Political Advisor, Devender Singh Rana, on Friday accused BJP of sowing the seeds of discord in the state for making their own political ends.
Addressing a gathering at Manwal here Rana said: “BJP is a divisive political force which is joining hands with other divisive and separatist elements to make a political conglomerate which will be an unholy alliance leading to political instability in the state.”
He said BJP is deceiving people by denying its efforts to broker an alliance between the PDP and the separatists as the senior BJP leader Ram Jethmalani is on record having said that he was in Srinagar working for a PDP – Separatists alliance. However, Rana said that such an alliance is welcome to face the next assembly elections together with the BJP. “I firmly believe that the secular minded people of Jammu and Kashmir will reject them and teach them a lesson,” he added.
Rana said BJP in the state is a rudderless ship with a confused leadership whose cadre is disgruntled, disillusioned and disheartened with the conduct of its leaders and is desperately looking for a political space outside the BJP because they see no future for the BJP in the state as also no future for themselves within the BJP.
