The BJP on Sunday released its election manifesto in Urdu for the continued District Development Council (DDC) polls in Kashmir.
Former MLC Vibhod Gupta released the manifesto in presence of senior party leaders from the Valley like Sofi Yosuf and Darakhshan Abdrabi.
The manifesto claims that while the BJP has unified the country by abrogating provisions of Article 370 and Article 35A that provided special status to the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir, the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration an amalgam of several mainstream political parties, including NC and PDP was working against the national interest for vote bank politics.
It further says that after reorganisation, Jammu and Kashmir has been placed on a track of development and peace. The party claimed that stone-pelting was ended and terrorism was being addressed an iron hand.
In the manifesto, the BJP also claimed credit for reserving 100 per cent of state jobs within the union territory for its residents only and framing a policy which will spur industrialisation.
The party said it’s launched a war against corruption and land grabbing within the union territory. it’s said basic amenities like electricity, water system and road networks within the union territory are improved also .
The BJP also claimed credit for doing away with SRO-202, a policy brought in by the PDP-BJP government in 2015 under which newly recruited government employees in Jammu and Kashmir were paid a paltry remuneration for seven years before being paid full salary.
