Udhampur, Apr 26: Former Education Minister and State President, J&K National Panthers Party (JKNPP) Harsh Dev Singh Wednesday said that collective efforts were required to be made to provide an alternative to the present dictatorial regime of BJP.
Emphasizing the need for unity amongst the various political parties to ensure revival of democracy and rule of law in the country, Singh observed the BJP government would continue to harass, humiliate and persecute its rivals and to deprive them of their basic democratic and constitutional rights until and unless the opposition leaders joined hands against its authoritarian and despotic rule.
Addressing a workers’ meeting in Udhampur, Singh said that disqualification of Rahul Gandhi from parliament membership was the cruelest joke in the constitutional history of the country which would be remembered as one of the darkest chapters in democratic jurisprudence the world over.
The Panthers party leader said the congress leader was the victim of dirty politics of present rulers who needed to be opposed, exposed and finally deposed.
“BJP is hell bent on demolishing the opposition. It wants to establish one party system. It’s breaking opposition parties through money and muscle power,” he said.
Singh said that the gradual slide of democracy into dictatorship was more clearly discernible in J&K as well. “Not only was J&K robbed of its statehood status and deprived of a legitimate elected govt but people were being subjected to the most unpopular rule of outside bureaucrats who hardly have any knowledge of J&K and its peculiar problems,” he added.
