Decline in vote share should worry BJP more than camouflage victory: Patil

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Jan 11: Senior AICC leader incharge J&K Party Affairs Rajni Patil, ex-MP, said that decline of around twenty five percent vote share of BJP in Jammu region in just over one year of last Lok Sabha elections should worry the ruling party more than camouflage by claiming victory in just five districts out of twenty districts in the hurriedly announced DDC elections.
Addressing press conference here today, she said that BJP made every attempt to polarize the election atmosphere for vested political interests but Congress is a unifying force and would not compromise on its inclusive policies for the sake of political interests, asserting that it would identify it shortcomings to emerge stronger wherever it lost.
Flanked by PCC President G A Mir, Patil questioned the government for deliberately not keeping the provisions of Anti defection law and not declaring the roaster of reservation of DDC chairpersons, as per existing law, before the holding of DDC polls, thus keeping the doors of horse trading open
She said all over country where elections are held on party basis for panchayat bodies, the anti-defection law is applied but here the government has not inserted such provision while holding election to the DDCs.
Again the roaster of reservation for DDC chairpersons is announced prior to holding elections but that too has not been done to deliberately keep suspense and for politics of horse trading open, which is unfortunate and illegal.
Referring to the results of DDC Elections, she said that the BJP lost 25 percent vote share in just one year from last Lok Sabha elections which reflects the disenchantment of people with BJP, while BJP is wrongly claiming victory.
Earlier AICC Incharge J and K party affairs Rajni Patil asked the newly elected and other contested DDC candidates of the party to remain in the service of the people in their respective constituencies and strengthen the party at grass root levels besides exposing the communal and divisive agenda of BJP.
Addressing a gathering of party candidates in the DDC elections and senior leaders of PCC, DCC and frontal wings, organized by JKPCC at Kangra Fort Jammu, Patil said that Panchayati Raj is the gift of Congress and 73rd and 74th amendment the brain child of late Rajiv Gandhi.
She said that the party would gear up its activities through the length and breadth of Jammu and Kashmir and would launch a campaign for restoration of statehood and jobs and land guarantee to the people besides restoration of 4G services at the earliest. A prominent political leader of Gool Gulabgarh area Gulzar Wani, who along with several of his supporters joined the Congress, was welcomed by Patil and PCC chief.
