SRINAGAR, June 24: While staying in alliance with the Peoples Democratic Party for over three years, the Bhartiya Janta Party could not succeed in fulfilling the promises it had made to people before the elections. Now that it has pulled out of the alliance, all eyes are on BJP once again to see if it would succeed in fulfilling these promises ahead of next elections.
Now that state has been brought under governor's rule, it will be interesting to see whether BJP, which is still in power at the Centre, would be able to fulfill the promises it had made before elections especially with people of Jammu and Ladakh.
"During the government, we were saying that alliance has to be run as per the Agenda of Alliance. Now there is pressure on the party's leadership how to ensure fulfilling of all those promises since we are still in power at the Centre," a BJP leader said.
The BJP leader said other political parties would make "non-fulfilling" of promises a poll plank in the upcoming elections. "We are thinking over it. We can't go with the same promises to people we made before the last elections," he added.
Declaration of holiday on the birth anniversary of Maharaja Hari Singh was one of the major issues that invited peoples' wrath for BJP. Similarly, BJP had said that there was a "requirement" for creation of new districts in the state. The BJP had said that there are "four to five new districts" in the Jammu division whose geographical area was "about 70 per cent more than that of Kashmir valley".
Similarly, the BJP had accused the Public Service Commission for being "bias" in the selection. Ahead of elections, it had also shown concern on "systematic illegal settlement" of Rohingyas and Bangladeshis in Jammu, which BJP said was against "national interest".
It also demanded withdrawn of FIRs registered during amaranth land row agitation.
Delimitation of constituencies, issues of West Pakistan refugees, return of Kashmiri pundits to the valley rotation of reserved seats, holding of panchayat and urban local bodies' polls were issues which BJP wanted to be taken on priority. All these promises remained unfulfilled in its three year alliance government. It is interesting to see whether the BJP will go with same promises in the Lok Sabha or Assembly elections in the state.
