On Saturday, Tarun Chug, national general secretary of the BJP, claimed that his organisation has transformed Kashmir from a centre of terrorism into a tourist destination. The BJP, he continued, “won’t let the Abdullahs, Muftis, and Gandhis bring Kashmir back to the 1990s.”
“The BJP turned J&K from a hub of terrorism into a tourist destination. This year, millions of visitors visited Kashmir. In J&K, vikas (progress) is happening in all areas, according to Chugh, who spoke at a news conference in Srinagar.
According to the BJP leader, New Delhi was making every effort to bring prosperity, peace, and development to Jammu and Kashmir.
“However, three families who destroyed the lives of regular people throughout their regimes are attempting to sow unrest for political advantage. These three dynastic political parties had turned J&K into a haven for thieves and hampered efforts to bring about peace and development. They have squandered all of J&K’s resources over the past seven decades. In addition, they gave them AK-47s, rocks, and grenades instead of pens, books, and laptops,” he continued.
The BJP leader reaffirmed that elections would soon be held in Jammu and Kashmir. “We hope Assembly votes will be held soon,” he stated. “The Election Commission has already started the preparations.” He added that the polls might be held by May of the following year.
The BJP leader declared that his group is dedicated to carrying out Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s vision. He continued, “We are determined to carrying through Late Vajpayee’s objective with full fire and zest.” He described the late leader, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, as “the torch bearer of peace and pushed J&K to the fore in terms of peace and development.”
The militants responsible for the most recent killings of Kashmiri Pandits had been “brought to task sternly and would not be spared in the future,” he stressed, adding that the BJP was likewise dedicated to defending human life.
