Cheer leaders
4/5/2020 10:21:20 PM
The Jammu and Kashmir unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has made a mockery of itself by issuing contradictory statements over the new domicile law.
When the Centre issued the first order in which only class-IV jobs were reserved for domiciles of J&K, the BJP leaders welcomed it and termed it as a step towards right direction. They didn't even try to gauge the public mood and justified the first domicile law. When Centre amended it and reserved all the jobs for J&K domiciles, they welcomed it again.
The J&K BJP leaders acting like cheerleaders has proved it beyond doubt that they can't think beyond a point. These leaders should sit back and introspect. They should analyze whether they have been able to do justice with the role they had been given? Or they just messed up the mandate due to their mistakes and follies. It's high time for them to stop acting as second fiddles and work for the interests of the people of Jammu region who reposed faith in them in 2014 assembly elections by giving them overwhelming support. It was due to Jammu that they could share power with Peoples Democratic Party. But after coming into power they forgot their promises and didn't care much about the people who had elected them. They should realize that people are the fountainhead of power and they cannot be ignored, nor can their sentiments be downplayed. Another point they seem to have missed is that if people don't vote for them in the next elections, they will not stand anywhere. Even their own central leadership won't recognize them.
During the past few years, alternatives have started emerging in Jammu and things are changing fast. The BJP leaders should come out of the illusion that people don't have any other option other than BJP. It's strange that despite facing criticism widely they are still in slumber. Someone needs to tell J&K BJP leaders, even the party national general secretary and BJP's J&K incharge Ram Madhav expressed dismay over the first domicile law but local BJP leaders kept on welcoming it. How strange!
One needs to give credit to Jammu youth, who through different platforms conveyed a message to BJP high command that the first domicile law is unacceptable and it has to be amended. These youth didn't approach the local leaders, who it seems didn't even read it properly before welcoming it. Jammu youth have set an example and they have proved it beyond doubt that real power vests in them.
