BJP leaders join protest bandwagon
10/14/2021 12:00:13 AM

Leaders of ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) surprised many people in Kashmir by staging a protest against their own government. Though they claimed that there is LG led administration in J&K and he doesn’t belong to any party but everyone knows who is ruling the newly carved out Union Territory.
BJP leaders and activists from Kashmir assembled outside the Civil Secretariat in Srinagar and raised slogans against the bureaucrats. They blamed them for putting their lives at risk by throwing them out of the hotels they were putting up in Srinagar and shifting them to their native places without providing them with adequate accommodation and security. They even threatened that elected BJP sarpanchs and panchs will go on a hunger strike if their issues are not resolved.
After the recent target killings in Kashmir fear has gripped the Valley and a sense of insecurity has crept in. The nationalist people in the Valley are seeking protection and assurance that they won’t be harmed. And the government needs to address their concerns. The helmsmen should understand that elected representatives are political workers and not political prisoners. They needed to be treated properly.
BJP leaders and activists who staged a protest in Srinagar tried to distance themselves from the LG administration and tried to equate their party with the other political formations. But the fact is that these leaders have been ignored by their own government.
The protesters claimed that the bureaucrats don’t even pick up the phone. If this is the plight of the members of the ruling party leaders and activists, one can imagine the plight of a common man, who has no access to anyone. Bureaucrats remaining inaccessible and staying away from a common man have made people miserable. They are claiming that J&K’s transition into a Union Territory has not helped them. Many people have gone on record to say that before August 5, 2019—when the Centre abrogated J&K’s special status and bifurcated it into two union territories—things were better at least elected MLAs used to listen to them and raise their issues but now no one listens to them and they are treated shabbily.
During the past few months people from different walks of life, including traders, students, doctors, contractors and others have been staging protests as they are not being heard, but now the leaders of the ruling party too have joined the protest bandwagon.
