Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national General Secretary Tarun Chugh Monday expressed shock and grief over the militant attack on the BJP activists in Sopore which resulted in the death of a BJP activist and a policeman and injury of another BJP activist.
A statement of BJP issued here quoted Chugh as saying that this was an attempt to throttle democracy in J&K and described the attack as a “heinous act of cowardice”.
“At a time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi is trying to bring about development and growth in J&K, militants’ vicious game-plan to disrupt development process will be decisively defeated,” he said.
Chugh said people of J&K want progress and development.
“Violence is fast losing sense and relevance,” he said.
