Early Times Report
Jammu, Mar 13: The Congress party as well as Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) sees a deep rooted conspiracy to eliminate rich heritage, art, history, culture and other identity related issues by successive Kashmir centric governments.
Reacting over the news of moisture hit over 500-600 Basohli paintings worth over Rs. 3000-3600 Crores, Senior Vice President of Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee, Sham Lal Sharma said, it is a deliberate attempt and deep rooted conspiracy of Kashmir centric forces to damage and eliminate the Dogra's cultural heritage and legacy.
He further said that it was also unfortunate that Bhartiya Janta Party which was part of government has failed to even defend themselves even on the issue of registration of FIR against Army. "The BJP is playing the role of Jaichand as Chief Minister is taking unilateral decisions", he said but added that the preserving Dogra's heritage was above the party politics and it was the matter of Dogra's cultural legacy.
Sharma further criticized the Union as well as State government for their failure to persuasively taking up the preservation issues. "Where we had left the preservation work of Chenani fort, there is not any progress. Same is the case of Mubarak Mandi heritage complex, Basohli Fort, Akhnoor Fort and others", he said, adding that Congress would persuasively take up the matter.
Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party, Harshdev Singh also saw a deliberate attempt to eradicate the Dogra's cultural heritage and identity. "Deliberate attempts have been made by Kashmir centric forces to damage the identity of Jammu Dogra's and Panthers Party has been fighting tooth and nail for preserving it and will fight it in future also", he said.
Spokesperson of Congress Party, Ravinder Sharma said that it was very unfortunate that such a costly treasure of Art was ruining and authorities were in deep slumber. "After report in newspaper, the government must have been awoken from deep slumber and should take suo-moto cognizance of the matter", he said, adding that state government must respond over the news-item regarding ruining of Basohli paintings and come clear on the matter.
"BJP is more responsible for such negligence as being partner in Coalition, the Culture Ministry is with them and they should take steps", he said, adding that Congress party would vigorously take up the matter.
President of National Panthers Party, Balwant Mankotia said that under a well planned conspiracy, the Dogra's heritage is being eliminated. "These Kashmir based parties have been deliberately ruining the Jammu's cultural heritage. Panther Party has been fighting for the cause of preserving Dogra's cultural heritage and identity and would leave no stone unturned to save this identity", he reiterated.
