JKPCC President slammed BJP for diving and downgrading the J&K into UT to serve its political agenda. BJP has done tremendous blunder by making a full-fledged State as UT with the result people are feeling disappointed. He said the democratic rights too have been snatched, which is very unfortunate and reflects the divisive agenda of the BJP.


He said Congress Party is capable enough to fight against the BJPs vendetta politics, it will continue to highlight the price hike, rising unemployment, lack of development, misuse of agencies against the opponents at every appropriate forum to make BJP accountable and answerable to people.

Vikar expressed gratitude to leaders and workers for the rousing ovation they gave him on his arrival at Party Office and assured that he will represent their aspirations with full dedication and honestly.

CWC Member and Chairman of the newly constituted Political Affairs Committee explained about the devastating results of the nefarious designs being enacted by GOI through Chief Electoral Officer by announcing the right to vote in J&K’s Assembly Elections to non- domicile people including Army and Paramilitary forces. He said GOI was forced to evolve this novel and nefarious designs, only when they failed to implement their earlier nefarious designs for bringing demographic changes by way of colonization on non-locals.

Karra emphasized the workers to gear up to fight for the identification of J&K, besides defeating the nefarious designs of BJP, which is hell bent upon to change everything in J&K to serve their vested interests, he maintained.
