Srinagar, Jan 03: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is ruling Jammu and Kashmir with the support of People’s Democratic Party has been continuously receiving complaints about wrongdoings of their workers in Kashmir Valley.
Reports said that some opportunists joined party in a bid to reap benefits joined party shortly after it formed government in the State. Even some workers who are accused of duping common people, looting money from them joined the party and some of them are protected ones.
If victims are to be believed, a BJP worker duped a Bank official while entering a land deal with him. The victim is unable to get his money back as the worker is enjoying the support of some BJP leaders in the corridors of power.
Another worker has reportedly duped scores of people in the name of providing them government jobs.
The party today issued a press statement warning these vested interest elements.
State General Secretary of the party Ashok Kaul termed all the personal letter pads of party workers as null and void, after frequent reports of misuse of party name in the general public.
“Only party’s official letter pad is valid now,” Kaul said, while directing its workers not to use personal letter pad for any reference.
He also said that some people are frequently using party name for their vested interests. “There are complaints that a person namely, Suhail Mir from Kaka Road Nayi Basti, Sheetal Nag, Bagwanpora, Lal Bazar is misusing the party name,” he said, adding, Suhail is not a party worker and was never affiliated with the party.
Kaul appealed people to stay away from such people. “Party doesn’t believe in such deceitful tactics, so, general public is informed to stay away from such offers,” he said.
Kaul also cautioned party workers not to involve in such subversive activities.
