Saying BJP setting a wrong precedence by throwing parliamentary ethics, political propriety to winds

Srinagar, 07 Feb (KNS):The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Sunday censured ruling BJP and its ilk for employing coercion and intimidation as a tool to win cross over’s for its team –B which has failed to make any mark in the recently held DDC polls, saying the ruling BJP was setting a wrong precedence by throwing parliamentary ethics and political propriety to winds

As per the statement issued to KNS, Remarking  on the defections and crossovers facilitated by BJP to help its team B save its face value  following an electoral drubbing, Party’s Additional General Secretary Sheikh Mustafa Kamaal stated that the  administration was also playing partisan to curry favor with the ruling party and their stooges. “Defections and crossovers have become a new normal in this part of the world. The region has turned into a breeding ground of such a breed of politics nurtured by ruling BJP. In the long run the current phenomenon will have a formidable bearing on the nature of electoral politics in Kashmir. The pest of defection has been a prominent feature of BJPs new touted Kashmir policy. Having failed to garner support through genuine electoral process, the BJP is touching new lows on daily basis to help its team B in its face saving.  The rampant instances of defection , and crossovers  using coercion, intimidation and bullying post DDC elections  in Shopian, Srinagar and elsewhere in Jammu and Kashmir is a telling indictment  of the BJP’s brand of politics. BJP is wittingly helping political impropriety and opportunism take roots. This, I believe is not compatible with the country’s democratic moorings and certainly not in the greater interests of a region like that of ours,” he said.

Kamal said the scenarios unleashed by the ruling BJP tantamount to robbing the mandate of people. “The recent joining of DDC members from Shopian into the Apni Party is a case in point, where all parliamentary norms and political propriety were not given a care. Our party leadership took no time to bring the developments to the notice of CEC. The action is although awaited.  BJP seems to have shun all its inhibitions in winning crossovers through hook or crook,” he said   

Meanwhile party's north, south and central zone functionaries, women’s wing, YNC, minority wing and legal cell have also condemned the ruling BJPs trading of people’s mandate and undermining of democracy. The functionaries urged the CEC to take cognizance of the matter and disqualify such flip floppers impending which such DDC members should be debarred from voting. (KNS)
