BJP could again form govt with Mehbooba Mufti
Ashok Koul on PDP
6/22/2018 11:16:45 PM
Early Times Report
JAMMU, June 22: Ashok Koul is not an ordinary person in the J&K BJP. He holds the most important position in the party after the party president. He is General Secretary Organization and former RSS Pracharak. Nothing in the party could move without his consent or without his participation. He controls the organization. Hence, whatever he says just can't be overlooked or ignored.
On Thursday, Ashok Koul made a very significant political statement on the BJP's future course of action. His statement didn't match with the statements of BJP national president Amit Shah and BJP national spokespersons. Amit Shah and BJP national spokespersons gave the nation to understand that the BJP withdrew support to Mehbooba Mufti Government in J&K in the larger national interest and that the situation under her government had deteriorated. In other words, they gave everyone to understand that the alliance of the BJP with the PDP was not in national interest and that her government had virtually become a threat to national security because of her soft approach on separatists, terrorists and Pakistan.
Contrarily, Ashok Koul sprung a big surprise by making a statement that the BJP was open to forge an alliance with any political party, including the PDP. Talking to Kashmir based news agency, Ashok Koul said: "BJP did not betray PDP" and the "doors of the BJP are open to all political parties, including PDP in the aftermath of the fall of the Mehbooba government in J&K".
What he said was a negation of the line his boss took in New Delhi. His statement only meant that the BJP could not only re-stitch an alliance with the PDP and if that was not possible, the BJP could join hands with the NC or the Congress.
It was clear from his statement that there were elements in the party who didn't want to sever the BJP's ties with the PDP. How else whould one interpret what he said in unambiguous terms.
It is for the party high command to make the party's position on what Ashok Koul said clear. If it failed to issue any clarification or if failed to take action against him, then it shall be presumed that it endorsed Ashok Koul's statement.
