Jammu:Accusing the BJP leaders of blowing hot and cold over the Rassana issue, Harsh Dev Singh Chairman JKNPP and Former Minister said that they were deliberately making contradictory and incongruous statements to weaken the people’s movement for a fair probe in the child homicide case. He was referring to the statements and social media posts of some of its leaders trying to join the chorus in favour of CBI probe. With its Ministers still tight lipped and acquiescing in the Mehbooba’s directive of continuing with crime Branch probe, the media statements of its C and D grade leaders were meant only to mislead and hoodwink the people as a measure of Machiavellian politics. Addressing the BJP to shun its hypocrisy and double standards,
Singh said that its policy of running with hare and hunting with the hound shall prove its waterloo at the Hastings. He was addressing a gathering of Young Panthers after their protest at Gandhi Nagar where the Party activists torched the effigy of BJP for its hypocrisy and betrayals.
Describing the BJP leaders as multi faceted dunderheads, Singh said that they speak one language while in opposition, a second one whole in power and a third and altogether different one when out of power. He said that the ousted BJP ministers too had suddenly started feeling the pain of Jammu people immediately after they were sacked with a ‘divine realization’ having dawned upon them that Jammu’s voice was being suppressed. Had these BJP leaders asserted and raised their voice for the cause of their electorates while in power, Jammu would have been saved from much humiliation and insult, lamented Harsh. He said that the people of Jammu had got the shocker of their lifetime on being dubbed as pro rapists for demanding CBI probe in saffron rule.
Calling upon the State and Union Govt. to announce CBI probe into the Rassana episode, he said that many skeletons would tumble down the cupboard once the investigations were transferred to the central agency. He said that the PDP-BJP were scared of some more startling facts coming to fore once the probe was taken over by the central investigating agencies. He said that several hints had been dropped in the reports of BCI and GIA which could turn the tables once the probe was assigned to CBI. He said that NPP would not relent till justice was done to the child and enquiry entrusted to CBI.
Singh further sought immediate withdrawal of all cases registered against the peaceful protestors yesterday in Kathua and lambasted the govt. for using coercive methods to suppress the people’s demand for CBI probe.
