Under attack for government's "failure" to declare holiday on the Hari Singh’s anniversary, the BJP hit back at critics and said some people "who wanted to merge Jammu and Kashmir with Pakistan" are doing politics on the issue to mislead the people.

"Some people are trying to mislead the public by doing politics on this matter but the people should understand this those are the people who wanted to merge Jammu and Kashmir with Pakistan at the hands of Hari Singh. These people always do divisive politics and are doing it today as well," Nirmal said.

Singh said the BJP has always paid homage to Maharaja with sincerity since the ruler has always acted in the spirit of public welfare.

"Today politics has started on his birth anniversary even as the BJP has already raised this demand of the people strongly in the government," he said and promised that the BJP would ensure holiday in the same manner as the party has established the statues of maharaja.
