Jammu, Oct 22: The J&K Aam Aadmi Party, apropos to the news item published in a section of press on 21-10-19 titled "J&K to get true "self rule", "autonomy" under Modi Govt.", in a press release issued here, said that the real face of BJP in implementing true Panchayati Raj system in J&K is now fully exposed in view of its role played here first during their tenure as partner with PDP and now when we have President's rule.
The release said that it was during BJP partnership with PDP when they amended J&K Panchayati Raj Act, providing for indirect elections for Sarpanch which was later on rescinded by N.N. Vohra the then Governor of J&K.
And now when BJP has its say during President's rule, they have ensured BDC elections on Party basis, detaining all opposition leaders without making 73rd amendment of Indian Constitution applicable in J&K, the release said and added that with a clever mind and conspiracy ,the BJP did not wait for a weeks' time when on 1st November,2019,all central laws including 73rd amendment would have been applicable in J&K with the formation of UT status to J&K state.
The release further added that in fact all Political Parties including BJP don't want true decentralization of power into the hands of public representatives in a real democratic manner.
