This refers to your piece "Choking political space" in GK. It was not the first incident in Pulwama when civilians were treated worse than animals. Your piece at present does not carry any meaning as in government you justified the gruesome episodes of atrocities done by the same forces. How can we forget "toffee and milk" comment of your CM. In your own district Pulwama, all limits of terror were crossed, but you never brought in to the notice of GoI. Your every party leader shielded the state Government. When human rights were violated at Salar Pahalgam area Muhammad Rafi Mir justified that. Sartaj Madni was brand Ambassador of praising Narendar Modi of having a solution for Kashmir that no one in India has. You people were proudly participating in TV debates & justifying the human rights violations happing during your rule. No one from state BJP unit ever came forward to defend people's right.
More particularly you were front runner participating in TV debates, discussion and issuing statements of shielding your unholy alliance. How painful was it that thousands were injured, hundreds killed and thousand others jailed. You still enjoyed the powers, before being thrown out of power by your own partner. During your rule states Autonomy was eroded with your full support. NEET & GST imposed. Jammu division getting lion's share viz; employment, developmental projects, education. IIM which was sanctioned for was illegally gifted to Jammu. Had Ghulam Nabi Azad not sanctioned AIMS branches and Medical colleges during his tenure, they would have been also surrendered to Jammu to keep you in power corridors. By default your government inaugurated these institutions sanctioned by UPA II.
During your tenure state exchequer was over burdened by futile exercises and illegal appointments of states lone asset JK Bank. As many as 18 Chairmen of different corporations were appointed against the norms of the state. How hurting was it, that a U/Matric & retire class 4themployee was given charge of Chairman of a development board, when there is girth of professional people available in the state. Losing candidates particularly blue eyed of your party head were adjusted in these corporations, who did nothing except getting VIP treatment & huge salary. Highest respectable persons in the society i,e Teachers were mentally torched by your uncontested Education Minister. Kashmir issue is far away , you never addressed internal problems like Bijli, sadak or pani of the state.
