BJP is biased against Jammu: NC leader Bunty

Early Times Report
JAMMU, May 26: Taking a dig at the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) for exploiting sentiments of the people of state especially those belonging to the Jammu region, senior National Conference (NC) leader Surinder Singh Bunty has said that the masses have now realized that the saffron party committed a blunder by aligning with the PDP.
Speaking to Early Times, Bunty said the "unholy alliance" between PDP and the BJP totally failed to come up to the expectations of the people.
"BJP always exploited Jammuites on regional and religious lines…it kept on harping on Jammu-related issues saying that the Jammu region is being discriminated against. But when an opportunity to deliver came its way it failed miserably," said Bunty.
"BJP is by far most biased against Jammu as it could not provide justice to the people of Jammu. The saffron party made tall promises during the last elections but the end result was zero deliverance on ground," he added.
Responding to a question on the reasons for NC's outstanding success in the just concluded Lok Sabha elections in Kashmir Valley, Bunty said the victory is largely due to the strenuous efforts put in by the NC leadership, but credit must go to the people of the state who have reposed their faith in the party.
"Continuous hard efforts made by our top leadership on different contentious issues bore fruits which ultimately paved the way in winning all the three seats contested by the NC," said Bunty.
He also attributed the party's good show in the polls due to the previous political dispensation's poor performance on all fronts, adding that the PDP-BJP coalition government failed to provide basic amenities to the people of the state which eventually turned the tide in favour of the NC.
"Basically, the people felt cheated so they gave a befitting reply by making a decision in favour of the NC on the seats it fought," said Bunty.
On NC's prospects in the next state Legislative Assembly polls, a confident looking Bunty said that the party's chances are very bright. "We are quite sure that the people of the state are wise enough to understand the situation. What really would make the real difference was the non-deliverance of the previous regime. We are hopeful that if the elections held at this juncture, the NC will bounce back and form the next government in the state with full majority as it did in 1996," said Bunty.
