‘Don’t blame BJP for 4G now, it can take credit for restoration later!
5/29/2020 12:06:16 AM

JAMMU, May 28: If the issue of 4G internet services in the Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir is out of the purview of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as asserted by its J&K UT unit spokesperson Brig (Retd) Anil Gupta, in a press release issued here today then the party must also make a commitment to the people of the UT particularly Jammuites that it won’t take any credit for the restoration of high speed internet as and when it happens.
The statement issued here today by the BJP leader Brigadier (Retd) Anil Gupta has exposed the myth that the local leadership of the saffron party is also playing its part on the issue of restoration of 4G internet services in J&K by pleading the case before the party high command as well as the central government.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said that the BJP spokesperson’s statement on 4G reflects the ignominy of the local leadership who are unable to convince its party high command or the union government to order the restoration of high speed internet services
“It’s sheer escapism. How easily and unabashedly BJP leader shrugged off the issue of 4G restoration in J&K UT, forgetting that it is the responsibility of the party who is at the helm of affairs to take care of the aspirations of the people. BJP should behave like a party in power rather than resorting to avoiding the issues affecting the people,” said the analyst.
“If they (BJP) are not ready to take the blame for non-restoration of the high speed internet services in J&K then the party must forget to take the credits as and when the 4G gets restored. It is as simple as that,” he added.
It is in place to mention here that the central government had imposed a complete internet shutdown in the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir in August 2019, after scrapping Article 370 which gave J&K its special status. Eight months later, it restored internet services partially, to allow 2G speed for mobile users on March 4.
After this, several orders were passed from time to time, retaining speed restrictions. The last order was passed yesterday, allowing these restrictions till June 17.
