Jammu: Taking serious note of the partition remarks by Member of Parliament from PDP, State BJP has demanded immediate resignation of Muzaffar Baig on principle grounds.
“Failure on his part to tender resignation may force BJP to approach the Lok Sabha Speaker to take cognizance of his public statement and take appropriate action against him,” BJP State Spokesperson, Sunil Sethi here said on Sunday while addressing media persons.
Mr Sethi confronted Mr Baig for his ‘anti-National’ statement in which he said that the Nation will again divide, if lynching is not stopped.
He said that this is totally unacceptable adding, “BJP is totally against any type of lynching be it on Cow slaughter, honour killing or ethnic cleansing of Kashmiri Pandits from valley”.
He said that the threat by PDP leader of division of country is totally ‘anti-National’ and nobody can divide the country now.
He demanded immediate resignation of Mr Baig on principle grounds and said that failure on his part to tender resignation may force BJP to approach the Lok Sabha Speaker to take cognizance of his public statement and take appropriate action against him.
Mr Sethi further said that the BJP forged alliance with PDP to honour people’s mandate with the sole mission of development.
He said the PDP Chief totally failed in ensuring law and order as well as the issues of National security, which forced BJP to pull out from the government in J&K.
Replying to the statement of former CM Mehbooba Mufti, Sethi said that in reality, BJP was swallowing poison while having alliance with government, so cracked the pot when it began to harm National security.
Mr Sethi said that Ms Mufti and Dr Farooq Abdullah are desperately asking for talks with Pakistan on Kashmir but BJP makes it loud and clear that the only issue which can be discussed is taking back the “illegally occupied PoJK” from Pakistan and it is also the spirit of the Indian Parliament resolution.
Mr Sethi also said that the PDP President is raking the issue of 35-A just to provoke the people of Kashmir which is highly condemnable and moreover her such utterances invite contempt of court as the same is currently sub-judicious matter.
