Srinagar, April 22
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday said that it’s unfortunate that statement of the party’s National general secretary, Ram Madhav, has been misrepresented. In a statement here the BJP spokesman Khalid Jehangir said, “A notion has been created that BJP is against its own people but the fact is that BJP doesn’t want lives of innocents to be lost and cares for the common masses.” Referring to recent statement of Ram Madhav, the BJP spokesman said, “The National General Secretary had appreciated and applauded the security forces for saving the innocent lives and not falling into the trap of terrorists, whose only agenda is to celebrate the death of every Kashmiri every day.” “PDP ministers should acknowledge the contribution of the security forces rather than adding fuel to the fire. They should appreciate the security forces for tackling the terrorists and not allowing them to succeed in their nefarious designs,” Jehangir added.
He said, “It’s in unfortunate that a senior leader and minister in our coalition issued a statement without knowing the facts. Such statements encourage separatists and other secessionist elements.”
