Our membership drive grand success, unexpected results across Valley: BJP
Srinagar, Jul 22 : In a significant development, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has finally managed to make serious inroads in Kashmir by registering at last 80,000 new members into the party fold in the ongoing membership drive that started on July 7. The party leaders claim that BJP’s Kashmir unit was getting overwhelming response in Kashmir and from every district especially from Srinagar district.
BJP’s national vice president and in-charge Kashmir affairs, Avinash Rai Khanna said that party’s Kashmir unit is feeling contended over the great response shown by the people of Kashmir as unexpected number of people are joining the party fold. “We are hopeful that the party will pass the fixed target of increasing the 20 per cent more number of members to the existing one,” he said. “In every district, BJP is getting overwhelming response with politicians of other political parties joining us besides cross section of the society.”
He said the party had fixed three lakh new members as its target for Kashmir and the way people are joining them, it seems that they will cross the figure and reach about four lakh mark.
According to BJP leaders, since the party launched membership drive in Kashmir on July 7, 80,000 new members have been added to the party fold while as Srinagar has topped the figure where 8000 new members alone have joined. “The figure is increasing and we hope when the membership drive ends on August 6, we will have at least four lakh new members in Kashmir,” a BJP leader, overseeing the membership drive said.
He said that in the restive south Kashmir, response to the membership drive was encouraging. “People of all thoughts are joining BJP given its clear agenda,” he said.
BJP’s General Secretary (organization) Ashok Koul said that each member has been directed to add 25 new members into the party fold. “We are satisfied with the way, people are joining us. We are hopeful that at the booth level, constituency level and also at the district level, our vote bank is increasing with each passing day,” he said.
Pertinently, BJP top brass had directed the party officials to ensure all the 17 lakh people who voted for the party across the State in the recently concluded Parliamentary polls, where BJP bagged two seats in Jammu and one in Ladakh, are brought to the party fold through membership drive.
People of state feeling vulnerable in absence of an elected govt: Farooq Abdullah
Srinagar, July 22: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference President and Member of Parliament Dr Farooq Abdullah on Monday said the state is caught in a blizzard and the need of the hour requires us to give a combined response to the challenges the state is facing particularly on its identity.
Addressing workers and party functionaries here at party headquarters party president said the Kashmiris are feeling alienated in their own land in wake of the absence of any popular government in the state.
“Today Muslims living across the world are subject to the nefarious machinations of those who have vested interests in a divided Muslim world. The fate of Muslims in the state is no different; it is at the peril due to the onslaught of such powers as are hell-bent to obliterate the Muslim Majority character of our state. The very pluralistic visage of our state has traditionally been scorn in the eyes of those people as is hell-bent to destroy it. The people of the state are feeling the vulnerable absence of a democratically elected representative government. It is high time for the GOI to give the people of the state the opportunity to elect a government which can further the cause of development in the state,” he said adding, “The iron-fist policy of the incumbent administration has added to the insecurities of Muslims living in the state. The plight of the Muslims in the state is no less miserable than their counterparts living across the country. It seems that the large population of Muslims in the state and the country is being deliberately kept out of the development agenda. However, the idea of a developed India cannot be achieved if the minorities are left out.”
Party president said people of the state have been disenfranchised from their constitutional right of having a representative government in place, “The utter failure of the former PDP-BJP government on every conceivable matrix in the state has already disenchanted people towards democracy. The politically motivated jibes against politicians emanating from the governor’s office are adding to the disenchantment among youth towards the democratic process. The need of the hour calls for restoring a popular government in the state that has been limping towards the full realization of democracy in wake of the persistent tumultuous situation and a long spell of governor’s rule. It is unfortunate to see the penchant of the incumbent governor for political muddle. Our party has given immense sacrifices to further the cause of democracy in the state; we have lost scores of our workers, functionaries in this connection. The people of the state are fed up of the development deficit plaguing the state. A laid back oligarchy cannot replace the vital and vibrant role of the elected legislature and representative cabinet.”
