Jammu & Kashmir may lose its special status if reports are to be believed.
BJP national President Amit Shah’s high profile rally in Jammu on Saturday, which got a huge felicitation from localities indicate the same. The rally was organised to observe the death anniversary of Jan Sangh founder Shyamaprasad Mukherjee, whose main demand was to end the special status of J&K.
From the Saturday’s rally BJP chief made several hard hitting statements in the course of his speech, one of that was: Mukherjee was murdered in jail of J& K; cadres of RSS have maintained that Shyamaprasad was poisoned but the state administration has been always in denial mode. Also that, Shah claimed that J & K joined India because of the efforts of the Praja Parishad, too was controversial. It directly negated the role of SK Abdulla, founder of the National Conference and former Chief Minister of Jammu & Kashmir.
The Praja Parishad, which evolved from the sabha, was largely to oppose Abdulla after he was given emergency powers.
On the issue of separation from PDP Govt, Shah said that the PDP-led state government had been discriminating between Jammu and Ladakh though the central had spent lots of fund over development.
