Early Times Report

Jammu, July 7: To keep PDP leadership in good humour, BJP ministers in the previous PDP-BJP coalition government had shamelessly missed all functions related to Dr Mukherjee for three successive years in 2015, 2016 and 2017 just to appease Kashmir centric.
On the birth anniversary of the founder of Bharatiya Jan Sangh (BJS) Lieutenant Governor, Girish Chandra Murmu on Monday paid rich tributes to Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee. This is the first time in the history of J&K that any head of the government has paid tributes to Dr Mukherjee who had laid down his life for total integration of J&K with Indian Union. In his message, the Lt Governor described him as a “visionary leader who played an instrumental role in shaping Indian politics.”
“J&K always had a special place in his thoughts. His exemplary contributions towards National Unity and development of India can never be forgotten,” he added.
LG’s tributes to Dr Mukherjee was an eye-opener for power hungry BJP who during their tenure in the government could not muster the guts to attend a function to pay tributes to the founder of their party.
To keep PDP leadership in good humour, BJP ministers in the previous PDP-BJP coalition government had shamelessly and intentionally missed all functions related to Dr Mukherjee and Pandit Prem Nath Dogra for three successive years in 2015, 2016 and 2017 just to appease Kashmir centric parties. It was only after the party pulled out of the coalition the former BJP ministers had attended first such function on June 23, 2018.
Dr Mukherjee was arrested on May 11, 1953, when he entered Jammu and Kashmir without permit. He was sent to a Srinagar jail where he died “under mysterious circumstances” on June 23, 1953.
Dr Mukherjee was arrested by Sheikh Abdullah. At that time, the state had a Prime Minister and Dr Mukherjee had opposed giving the Prime Minister status to the Chief Minister of a state. He had also opposed the permit system in J&K.
Dr Mukherjee had said “Ek desh mein do Vidhan, do Pradhan aur do Nishan nahi challengay” (A single country can’t have two constitutions, two prime ministers and two national emblems).
