Cong paid lip service to people only; never honoured Maharaja Hari Singh ji due to appeasement policy: BJYM


Jammu,September 19 (Scoop News)- Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) on Monday took a strong dig at the Congress for its criticism of the BJP over the announcement of public holiday on Maharaja Hari Singh’s birth anniversary and said the party should first go for introspection.
“Despite ruling the country and J&K for a majority of years since Independence, Congress never bothered to honour the role and contributions of Maharaja Hari Singh Bahadur ji. Under its appeasement policy, Congress always ignored the social and religious reforms brought in by Maharaja Hari Singh Bahadur ji in Jammu and Kashmir. Congress party is now trying to regain its lost ground in Jammu and Kashmir by leveling baseless allegations on the BJP,” Arun Prabhat, the BJYM state president said.
Reacting sharply to a statement of JKPCC working president Sh. Raman Bhalla, Mr Prabhat reminded the Congress party that the BJP was the first party in the legislature of erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir in 2017 which moved a resolution declaring September 23 a public holiday and got it passed on the floor of the House despite stiff resistance from Kashmir-based political parties.
“Congress party remained mum on the floor of the House and it did not support the resolution at that point of time due to its appeasement policy. It was the BJP which initiated the process for declaring the birth anniversary of Maharaja Hari Singh Bahadur ji as a public holiday and turned it into a reality now,” the BJYM chief said.
Prabhat said that the BJP was committed to honour and respect the sentiments of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, and the declaration of holiday on birth anniversary of Maharaja Hari Singh Bahadur ji is the testimony to it.
“Congress should remember that Maharaja Hari Singh Bahadur ji was known for his high virtues and the party should not drag his name in the dirty politics being pursued by it for the sake of criticism. Apart from its appeasement policy, the party has done nothing for the welfare of the people of Jammu and Kashmir. In the case of declaring Maharaja Hari Singh Bahadur ji’s birth anniversary as a public holiday, Congress also paid to lip service to the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” the BJYM leader said.
Meanwhile, the BJYM leader extended sincere gratitude to the Hon’ble Union Home Minister Sh. Amit Shah and Hon’ble Lieutenant Governor Sh. Manoj Sinha for acceding to the long pending demand of the people by announcing public holiday on Maharaja Hari Singh Bahadur ji’s birth anniversary.
“The BJP-led government at the Centre and the UT administration headed by Hon’ble Lieutenant Governor have respected the sentiments and emotions of the people of Jammu and Kashmir for Maharaja Hari Singh Bahadur ji and announced a public holiday. It shows that Jammu and Kashmir holds a special place in the heart of the Hon’ble Prime Minister Sh Narendra Modi ji and Hon’ble Union Home Minister Amit Shah ji,” Arun Prabhat said.
