BJP-PDP together began campaign against militancy in Kashmir: Ram Madhav

SRINAGAR: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) general secretary Ram Madhav said that BJP will contest all seats in Jammu and as many as possible in Kashmir.

In an interview with Hindustan times Madhav said, “it was a successful campaign against militancy in Kashmir, not only 2018, but from past years was successful for security forces in Kashmir”.

He added this is a major success in the fight against militants. “Barring a few districts in south Kashmir, the Valley has largely been peaceful. Normal lives of people, developmental activity of the government are going on unhindered. Things have improved and nobody should doubt our determination to kill the last militants in the Valley. But at the same time, we are focusing in a big way to undertake developmental activity to ensure that the democracy returns in the state”, he said.

He added if local body polls are any indication, they have done well in the Valley also. “Both Congress and BJP contested and won seats. As far as the assembly or general polls are concerned, we are hoping that they will take place over the next few months”, he said.

He further added PDP was in alliance with BJP for three years. Together, we launched a massive campaign against militancy and militants and today, for her own politics, if Mehbooba wants to return to the politics of separatism and championing the cause of militants and their cohorts, it shows her own political double standards.

He added “when in power, we were consistent. We never said the militants are our in-laws, we went after them and we will go after them when we return to power”. He further added “when both NC and PDP are in Power they do something else and when out of the power they speak just something else”. (PTK)
