Early Times Report

Jammu, A ug 13: Alleging subversion of democratic rights of the opposition leaders by a power intoxicated BJP regime, Harsh Dev Singh JKNPP Chairman and Former Minister has questioned the prolonged house arrest of several leaders of Jammu without any justifiable reason. He said that the political leaders belonging to opposition parties had been illegally kept under preventive detention in their houses with all their freedoms having been snatched and their movements curtailed. Singh said that it was his seventh day in captivity with Police and ITBP personnel having been given strict instructions to confine him in his residential premises and not to allow any media person to enter his house. Describing the govt move as illegal confinement under IPC, Singh said that the administration had failed to provide any rational justification for such an unwarranted action against opposition leaders. He said that preventive detention in disturbed areas of Kashmir was understandable but why such an undemocratic and unconstitutional action had been initiated against the peace loving leaders in a peaceful environment of Jammu was beyond comprehension. He said that that it only indicated that the present govt only wanted to suppress the opposition and to silence all voice of dissent. All those who were singing songs in praise of BJP were allowed to hold public meetings and organize functions, but the very fundamental freedoms of opposition leaders were held hostage, lamented Singh. Regretting that opposing the political adventurism and anti Jammu policies of BJP had become a sin in the present rule, Singh appealed to the civil society to intervene in the larger interests of Indian democracy and rule of law.
