Early Times Report

Srinagar, Mar 25: Even as the “VIP protocol with Z-Plus security” for Gujrati conman, Kiren Patel has brought the security grid under the scanner, the Bharatiya Janta Party leaders from Jammu and Kashmir have raised the issue of their personal security in the national capital.
Sources said the BJP leaders from Kashmir in particular and their counterparts in Jammu have raised the issue with their party leadership in the national capital that while the administration was “caught offering VIP security to conman” many of the right wing cadres in the valley in particular “have been left to fend for themselves.”
The sources said the BJP leaders initially raised the issue of their security with party’s President for JK, Ravinder Raina and senior leader, Sunil Sharma, the issue was subsequently discussed in the national capital.
It was reliably learnt that some of the leaders from Kashmir have openly complained at a party meeting that it was unfortunate that the while the “security for conman was priority, many of the true nationalists having threat to life from terror groups were left without adequate or no security at all.”
The BJP leaders are understood to have shared evidence of terror threat to their lives and how their “safety and well being was being compromised.”
Referring to the killing of their college Gul Muhammad Mir In 2019, the BJP leaders said he got killed only after his security was allegedly withdrawn.
Its pertinent to mention that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had personally condemned the killing Mir, who was shot dead by terrorists in Anantnag district. The then Governor Satya Pal Malik had directed chief secretary to conduct inquiry into the killing.
The BJP leaders are believed to have asked the outcome of the inquiry ordered by the then Governor.
A senior BJP leader told the Early Times on the condition of anonymity that the Kiren Patel episode has “exposed the security grid and its priorities.”
“BJP is a disciplined party and the case of Kiren Patel and that of the security of our party leaders in Jammu and Kashmir will be taken to the logical conclusion.”
